Digital Extremes are taking their free to play Warframe to a new level with the Plains of Eidolon update. For the first time players will be placed in an open-world environment, and based on what we have seen so far, it really is taking the game in a new direction.
DE has said in an update that the new content could go live within 10 days stating, “The goal is to launch within the next 10 days – when the official Hub site launches there will be more information there. ”
While this is not a definitive release date, players will be pleased to hear it may arrive sooner rather than later.
There are also some more details on The Quest for Gara:
The Quest for Gara – Glassframe has a name and it’s Gara – inspired by the Design Council submission of ‘Garasu’. Since Mirage’s release we’ve strongly favoured releasing a Warframe’s free path with quests. Gara’s release will be no different.
DE streeses that the Quest for Gara is unlikely to be ready for launch adding:
“However the quest for Gara is likely going to be delayed by a week, due to a scheduling conflict with one of our key Ostron actors… however, because Gara is ready, she will be in the Market for those able to support us. If you cannot, that’s fine too – we’ll be adding Gara’s parts to the Cetus reward tables to give you a head start for when her quest does release. We will follow with Gara’s story as soon as it’s ready if it doesn’t make the release! ”
Finally, DE has released a map of the Plains and although it’s hard to see the scale from the image, when we have seen it in action it appears to be quite a size. With the ability to fly around it needs to be reasonably substantial.
