Warframe’s Railjack will have FTL-style fires


Warframe’s upcoming Railjack expansion is about pulling all of Warframe’s various elements together and connecting them by means of massive capital ships you can fly and customize. That’s going to come with new challenges for players, including putting out fires that break out on board your ship.

Digital Extremes’ Warframe development team sat down Friday for one of their regular update streams, and they shared some new details about Railjack. A piece of concept art showed a shipboard fire extinguisher – stylized to fit nicely into the organic look of Warframe’s Tenno armors.
“It’s a bit FTL, in that way that you need to manage the ship and its structural integrity, as well as flying it and manning the turrets,” said creative director Steve Sinclair.

FTL, of course, had us scrambling to manage multiple ship systems at a time, but from a top-down viewpoint in a pausable game. That kind of management is going to be a different proposition in Warframe’s tight third-person perspective, but it emphasizes the importance Railjack is placing on team cooperation.
