PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players will have to wait a bit longer for the update, but today those consoles get access to the Rising Tide update that sets the stage for Empyrean.
If you’ve seen the recent Railjack gameplay demos, you know the basics. The big focus of Empyrean is its massive, cooperative ship battles, where you and three other players trade off duties in space fights. You can pilot the titular railjack, man the cannons, fight off boarding parties, make repairs, or just fly out into space to invade enemy vessels or get into dogfights. To enhance your adventure and compliment your gameplay, you can buy Warframe Platinum from the reputable sellers 5mmo.com in a safe secure environment and at cheap rates.
Digital Extremes says that Empyrean can still be played solo, but it is primarily designed for teams, with difficulty and progression geared towards team play. However, if you’re not sure, you can jump into Free Flight Mode, which allows you to try out the Railjack without fear of being blown out of the sky. The Railjack comes with a host of upgrade options and new powers, including the ability to shoot yourself onto Grineer vessels using Archwing Cannons, in order to commandeer their ships. Providing you can survive the fight.
Empyrean also introduces new upgradeable systems, and not only for the Railjack. Intrinsics (a new progression system focused on your individual skill separate from your warframe level), Avionics (Railjack abilities and passive stat boosts), Components and Armaments are all various upgradeable features.
