Survival Missions Return!

Survival missions are here to stay and can be played by choosing Survival Missions on the Star Chart.

Our Survival weekend gave the team some early feedback on playability and difficulty, and our new Survival missions are ready for your Warframes! Survival now takes place in procedurally generated levels, allowing greater mission variety, challenge, and re-playability.

Survival missions will get more challenging the further you travel through the solar system. Expect to face lower level enemies closer to the sun, and higher level enemies as you reach the outer planets.

The enemies you face will be prepared to take on the strongest Tenno – the longer you play, the higher the stakes!

Weekly leaderboards are now live for all Survival Missions on the Star Chart!

All Raid Void Keys have been retroactively replaced with Survival missions.

Writer’s Impressions
2013-09-21_00001
The new Arsenal UI

I am really impressed with this update. The new aresenal UI in the game is much easier to use, and the new content is fantastic. There is much more to explore and learn about the Warframe universe now.

Although I will miss the old Raid missions, I do like the challenge of the new Survival missions. I participated in the Survival Weekend event, and am pleased to see that the Survival game mode made it into the regular game.

I also am head-over-heels in love with the new Soma rifle. It’s now my favorite gun in my entire game. My only complaint is that it chews up ammo like it’s going out of fashion, but that can be easily remedied with mods.

Digital Extremes gave all players 50 platinum for free to apologize for problems with platinum in the early stages of the update, so I went ahead and bought myself an Uru Syandana. I already feel the awesome emanating from this cool new cosmetic.

The new Carrier sentinel is pretty nifty, and once ranked up I’m sure it will really complement my new Soma rifle’s playstyle. I do also enjoy the new Sentinel features, such as being able to equip any sentinel weapon and being able to equip Badges to your Sentinel.

The new Dojo tileset is also very pleasing, the new Zen Gardens provide an excellent alternative to cross-corridors. I’m really looking forward to decking out my clan’s dojo with the latest and greatest in decorations.

Conclaves can be frustrating, but are fun to play around with and definitely a challenge in the higher levels. I’m interested to see how PvP evolves in Warframe.

Overall, this update gives even the most weary players another reason to get back into the game. It has a lot of content and is much more than just new levels. So what are you waiting for, Tenno? Get back in there and show the bad guys who’s boss!
