Following on from the successful launch of the Earth-set Plains of Eidolon last year, comes a new look at the next open-world location coming to Warframe. As part of the Fortuna expansion due later this year, Tenno will be able to head to Venus to fight with the Solaris United faction against their Corpus overlords.
The following new trailer, synchronised to music, showcases the new location, the neon-lit cities, and even what look like hoverboards for faster traversal.
The Orb Vallis, The New Open World -- Building on the success of Plains of Eidolon's earthen Landscape, The Orb Vallis is Digital Extremes' massive new Landscape. Volatile, mercurial clouds of blue and orange loom over a sci-fi terrain populated with seascape flora, giant mushrooms, alien rock formations, rare creatures, and more.
Like with Plains of Eidolon, the Colony of Fortuna city-hub will be where players will obtain new bounties and missions. The Fortuna update also comes with the arrival of two new frames - Codename 'Revenant' an Eidolon-themed Warframe with a deadly affliction and Codename 'Garuda', a vicious, gory Warframe - coming soon.
Perhaps the most interesting new announcement, as part of a later update, is the revelation of a new co-op mode called Codename: Railjack. Which will allow players to team-up and fly seamlessly into orbit and engage in space combat. With action that includes piloting the ship, manning turrets, and working together to take on enemy spacecraft. And from there being able to hop into an Archwing to board an enemy freighter to reach a core, take it out, and escape. It certainly sounds ambitious, and brilliant too. A new 1-4 player co-op way to play Waframe - in a genuinely exciting setting. Yes please.
