Warframe Devstream Teases UI Redesign, Melee Changes, More

Published

on

A lot of changes are coming in an upcoming update for Warframe, as Digital Extremes outlined the UI redesign and a number of changes as well.

Here is a breakdown of the Melee Changes that are on the way:

Warframe – Melee Changes

· Channelling: Let’s be real, Channelling gameplay and mods may not be a priority in your Arsenal, especially for a feature that takes up an entire button by itself. So we’re moving some of the mechanics of Channelling to the block button completely – normal blocking will now perform like channeled blocking currently does!

· Heavy Attacks: Heavy attacks will now use the old Channelling button and will be powered by your combo counter. Part of this change includes improvements to charge attacks (goodbye false swings), ground slams (making them able to be directional), and more.

· Combos: We are playing with the idea of the combo metre affecting mostly the new Heavy Attacks. As a result, all base damage values will be increased significantly. Additionally, we are planning to change the way you build up combos, so that you get better combos faster (instead of the current exponential system).

· Stances: Not all stances are built the same! We want to unify stance combos so that the amount of attacks and how to perform them are somewhat similar, so there is less of a giant learning curve when trying out a new Stance.

· Range: First and foremost, we will be removing the ability to melee attack through walls. Range Melee Mods will be reduced overall and will possibly become more specialized, while the base range of melee weapons will be increased.

Here is the video that the devs posted discussing everything coming in the next update

Disco Elysium Lawsuit Alleges ZA/UM CEO Illegally Took Majority Share

Disco Elysium

The ongoing battle between partners at Disco Elysium studio ZA/UM has taken another turn as new information has recently surfaced in the dispute between Disco Elysium creatives Robert Kurvitz and Aleksander Rostov and current ZA/UM CEO Ilmar Kompus and former executive producer Tõnis Haavel.

According to the Estonian Ekspress (via PC Gamer):

“the problems began when Margus Linnamäe, who largely financed Disco Elysium and was ZA/UM’s largest shareholder, decided to sell his stake in 2021. There was an expectation that Linnamäe would split his shareholding among the partners, but he allegedly sold it all to Kompus.

Kurvitz and Rostov did not know about this at the time. Their suspicions were raised when they were apparently demoted internally and, after checking the Estonian registration of companies, realised that control of ZA/UM now belonged to Kompus. The pair allegedly began demanding answers, shortly after which they were sacked. Both still own minor shareholdings in ZA/UM.

At the hearing, Kurvitz and Rostov argued that Kompus had used money that should have gone to the studio and shareholders, and funded Disco Elysium’s sequel, in order to buy those $4.8 million sketches. This was the alleged sleight-of-hand.

The shell company Tütreke, controlled by Kompus, somehow acquired these four sketches (described as being for a game called Pioneer One), and allegedly paid exactly one pound sterling for them before re-selling to ZA/UM for €4.8 million. This amount is what was apparently used to buy Linnamäe’s large stake, and put it in the hands of Kompus.”

A lawsuit is not guaranteed and the FTC has not made any formal announcements at this time.
