It’s been over a year since we caught our first glimpse of Warframe’s Railjack expansion. Now called Empyrean, fans got another look at Digital Extremes’ space pirate themed expansion at TennoCon.
One of the new features we see is a Squad Link system that lets you put out a distress beacon that asks other Tenno squads for help. You’ll be able to make use of the new system in multi-objective missions from space, and units who answer the call will complete menial tasks to help the first team out. These include lowering enemy ship shields or stealing valuable data. In the demonstration we saw, it was the former as a squad of Tenno took a break from spear fishing to help out the first team.
We also get a look at more of Empyrean’s core gameplay, and it’s finer details. The main thrust remains mostly the same as you take to the starry seas in a ship and ransack enemy vessels. To access the Railjack you’ll need to go to your clan’s Dojo. If you don’t have a group, however, you can create one and access your Railjack all the same – even if you are a one-person band.
