A series of big content updates are in line for Warframe, but before that, we’re getting a set of major quality-of-life changes and balance tweaks. The first major update of 2020 is called Warframe Revised – as the name implies, it’s an effort to “review, revise, and refresh” with 21 major changes, and it’s tentatively scheduled to launch the week of March 1.
There’s going to be a massive reduction in costs to build your Railjack. Each part will drop in price anywhere from 66% to 75%, and will now take only six hours to build. You’ll be refunded the difference in costs for any parts you’ve already built, even if your Rising Tide quest has long been completed. The devs say they’ve found “accessibility is key” to ensure future Railjack is worthwhile, so they’re making it easy for new players to lead the charge.
Armour, health, and shields are getting a big rework, which will include shield gating – a system where friends and foes alike will be protected from health damage when shields first disappear. In short, that means you’re going to get one-shotted less often.
