Game devs and players continue banding together to help the Australian bushfire crisisJan 17, 2020 - Rock, Paper, Shotgun Australia is still burning, but over the last couple of days they’ve actually had some rain! While this is a big help to certain areas, there are still 83 fires blazing around the country, and there’s a lot of people and wildlife still in trouble. It’s good job then that there are even more game devs, companies, and communities banding together to help out our friends down under. A new Humble Bundle, a donation from the makers of Warframe, and a charity initiative run by Eve Online players are just three more ways the games industry is raising money, and you can get involved to show your support too.

Indeed, having had the vast Samsung CRG9 hogging my desk for a bit last month, I’m inclined to agree. But what do games actually look like on a screen this wide? It’s one thing looking at lovely wallpapers, but another thing entirely to have a game occupy your entire field of vision. To find out, and more importantly show you, I’ve rounded up all the very best ultrawide PC games, complete with pictures of what they actually look like in the flesh, plus oodles of lovely GIFs so you can see how it works in action. If you thought playing Red Dead Redemption 2 in 5120×1440 was impressive, you ain’t seen nothing yet. (more…) Warframe: EmpyreanDec 12, 2019 - Community AnnouncementsTake the helm and set course for Warframe’s next leap forward: Empyrean. Cooperation is vital to survive aboard the Railjack. Man the turrets, pilot the ship, fight the fires — everyone has a role to play here. In this foundational update for Warframe’s space combat, work together to assault the Grineer above Earth, Saturn and at the edges of the Origin System. More factions and locations will come online in future updates. Reminder: This phase of Empyrean is designed and optimized as a cooperative experience. Solo players will still be able to enjoy Empyrean, but the difficulty and progression is balanced around full crews. 2020 will bring enhanced Solo capabilities with Empyrean! Get free Twitch drops throughout the next week as we celebrate the launch of Empyrean! Read on to learn more about our celebratory streams, how to get your Drops and how to begin your journey in space. The Sigma Series Railjack The Railjack is a multi-crew interceptor designed for salvaging wreckage and heavy combat. The Railjack delivers customizable firepower on a massive scale, including twin-mounted nose turrets, manned wing turrets on each flank and an underslung, armor-piercing forward artillery cannon. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4437469/fafd43b809a85d053d5218d00357ccf245907afb.jpg This interceptor has three primary components: Engines (speed), Reactors (tactical capacity) and Arrays (shields). During missions, you and your crew will collect armament and component wreckage, which can be repaired into ship upgrades back at the Dry Dock. You’ll also discover three categories of Avionics to install: Battle Avionics: Your Railjack’s abilities. Integrated Avionics: Passive stat boosts. Tactical Avionics: Ship-wide abilities that can be used by any crew member from the Tactical Map. (Examples: Void Cloak, Fire Suppression, Breach Seal) Avionics, components and armaments are made by multiple houses. Each brand offers different strengths and weaknesses allowing you to further customize your experience. These parts can only be equipped at the Dry Dock, so make sure you’re prepared for combat before you fly to your next mission. As your Railjack takes damage, fires and hull breaches will require your swift attention, along with hostile boarding parties looking for havoc. Keep your Railjack in operational condition by using the Omni multiuse tool to douse the flames and seal the holes. If you can’t leave your station, pull up the Tactical Map to issue commands to your crew! Begin Your Journey Once you’ve built your Archwing, matchmake into any open crew from the Star Chart by using the “Join a Crew” button! If you want to use your own Railjack, host the mission by starting it up from the Navigation screen aboard your Railjack. To experience the full Empyrean progression, you’ll want to be in a clan and build your own Railjack. Add the Dry Dock room to your Dojo, then begin the Quest to rebuild your Railjack from salvaged pieces across the Origin System. Once the pieces are in place...Warframe's spaceship combat is now live with the Empyrean expansionDec 12, 2019 - Rock, Paper, Shotgun While most announcements at The Game Awards focus on games months and years away, this one relates to something you can play right now: Warframe just launched its latest expansion, live on stage during the show. Empyrean is the expansion which lets crabmen pilot their own spaceship together with up to three pals, blasting through new spaceship missions. It is wild how much Warframe has grown from its humble beginnings as a third-person shooter. (more…) Warframe's Empyrean expansion is live on PC nowDec 12, 2019 - PC GamerWarframe's Empyrean expansion got a new trailer at The Game Awards tonight, and it also delivered a nice surprise for PC gamers—the expansion is live on PC, right now.  In Empyrean, you can customize and pilot your Sigma Series Railjack battleship in four-player co-op. We first heard about the ambitious Empyrean expansion at Tennocon last year, and learned more this summer.  You can play Empyrean solo, too, but it's really designed for a full four-player crew, though 2020 will bring updates more suited for solo players. There's also a free flight mode where you can practice piloting your Railjack without having to do battle. Warframe's Empyrean expansion rockets onto PCDec 12, 2019 - EurogamerIt's here at last: announced during the Game Awards, Warframe's spaceship co-op expansion is now live for PC players - all for free, though you might need to do some of the grunt work if you want to catch a ride on someone else's Railjack. First announced as Project Railjack during TennoCon 2018, the Empyrean expansion has been a long time coming, but looks to be worth the wait. After building a drydock and their own Railjack (the big ships), players can engage in massive space battles to take out objectives such Grineer vessels, or asteroids with big guns on them. Players can board enemy ships using Archwing cannons, level up individual roles onboard the ship (tactical, piloting, gunnery and engineering) and upgrade their Railjacks with special abilities or fancy paint options. There's a lot going on, so if you want the full tour, check out the latest devstream below. While Empyrean is centred around four-player co-op, in a media Q&A session, live operations and community manager Rebecca Ford told Eurogamer that solo players can expect further tweaks to the expansion post-launch.

You can't fly these immense battleshipa yet, but you can find the parts and build it before you start ship-to-ship fisticuffs and bossing your crew around.  Before starting the mission you need to have built a Dry Dock and have researched the Railjack Cephalon. Dry Docks are part of a Clan Dojo so you will need to have joined a Clan if you have not already done so. Once your dock is complete you will have access to two consoles—one of those consoles allows you to start researching Cephalon Cy, a no-nonsense AI for your ship. Completing these two objectives, plus The Second Dream quest, lets you begin the Warframe Rising Tide quest on the bottom right of your Codex. Cephalon Cy tells you where the Railjack parts you need are and what components you need to repair them. There are six in total: the Fuselage, Propulsion System, Port Nacelle, Starboard Nacelle, Tail Section, and the Engine Cowling. Want to find out the quickest ways to construct them? Then scroll on ahead, dear Tenno. How to complete the Warframe Rising Tide quest Your first stop is Mars: that's where you can find the the Fuselage. The mission—in which you defend the part as you scan it—will be marked on your navigation screen when you click on the red planet. You need to make sure that no enemies get near the Fuselage and that you kill the two Sentient Drones that attempt to intervene.  When you're done, go to the extraction point and return to your dry dock. Here Cephalon Cy will tell you the resources you need to repair the Fuselage: * 1,000,000 Credits; * 100 Cubic Diodes; * 3000 Plastids; * 15,000 Rubedo; * 30 Neural Sensors; If you're having trouble finding Cubic Diodes, check out our guide on how to farm Warframe Cubic Diodes. Fixing the Fuselage takes 12 hours and can't be sped up with premium currency. We also have some tips to help you farm farm Warframe Plastids if you're stuck on that.  The mission to get the Propulsion System is very similar to the Fuselage part. The propulsion system is found on Earth. You know the drill: find the marked mission on one of the nodes, defend against enemy waves while you scan, and take out Sentient Drones. Then back to your dry dock you go. Here's what you need to repair it: * 1,000,000 Credits; * 60 Carbides; * 1000 Cryotic; * 30 Orokin Cells; * 20,000 Nano Spores; Like Cubic Diodes, Carbides are also new to Warframe in the Rising Tide update. They drop when you kill Eximus on the Shipyard tileset on Ceres. The propulsion system takes twelve hours to repair.  The Port Nacelle can be found on Lua, and the mission plays out just like they did for the Fuselage and Propulsion System parts. This difference is that some Battalysts show up, so bring some heavy artillery with you and aim for their weak spot. That's their heads, by the way: your...How to farm Cubic Diodes in Warframe Nov 25, 2019 - PC GamerWarframe Cubic Diodes are a new resource added to the game as part of the recent Rising Tide update. In the new update, players now have the opportunity to build their own spaceships, otherwise knows as Railjacks. In these player-built beasts you can take part in ship-to-ship battles with a real-life crew. But, before you reach for your ship captain hat, you need to build it first—which you can do by progressing the Warframe Rising Tide quest—and unfortunately for you, you need to find the parts. That's where collecting Warframe Cubic Diodes come in. First, you'll need to build a dry dock, but once that's constructed, you can start searching for materials. So, without further ado, here's how to get one of the most precious new Warframe Railjack resources, and fast. How to farm Cubic Diodes in Warframe 100 Cubic Diodes are needed to construct your Railjack's fuselage. They drop after you kill Eximus units on the Ice Planet tileset on Europa. They drop around five to ten Cubic Diodes on death.  The most efficient way to farm for Cubic Diodes is by playing endless missions: more enemies means more items to pick up. The best type of mission to farm Cubic Diodes the fastest is the Dark Sector Defense on the Larzec node but Kuva Lich and Arbitrations missions also spawn Eximus units allowing you to farm. Once you have all the Cubic Diodes your heart (and your future fuselage) desires, that's one resource you can check off your shopping list. You still need to get 1,000,000 Credits, 3000 Warframe Plastids, 15,000 Rubedo, and 30 Neural Sensors.  The fuselage then take 12 hours to build, but there's no way of hastening the process. After you have finally collected all the right ship parts your Railjack will be completed. Ship battles won't be available until the Empyrean expansion, but at least your battleship is prepped and ready to go.   RISING TIDENov 22, 2019 - Community Announcements{STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4437469/956cb38dba3ea9034f7b5af89c316bc82fb3f420.png The balance of power is tipping. An imminent threat grows stronger, surging across the Origin System. Will you stand against it? Build the Dry Dock, assemble your Railjack and prepare for the coming battle. What will begin as a hangar will evolve into your sanctuary, a space to hone and upgrade your ship with powerful technology to become the weapon you’ll need. Build the Dry Dock by rallying your clan and contributing Resources to its construction. After that, if you have completed the Second Dream Quest, it’s time to forge your ship. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4437469/bdac505369f048ffb37de19f07db2d84e723976a.jpg BUILDING YOUR RAILJACK The Sigma Series Railjack is an Old-War era ship capable of all-out warfare. This ancient Orokin technology is key to surviving what’s to come — but you must first recover what was lost. The Command Cephalon Every ship needs a commander. Meet Cy, a no-nonsense Cephalon who values mission protocol above everything. Purchase the Railjack Cephalon Blueprint in your Dry Dock, rebuild him and bring him back online. Cephalon Cy will then direct you on how to craft your Railjack. The Broken Vessel Time has not been kind to the Railjacks. You’ll need to work with Cephalon Cy to find viable salvage from wreckage across the Origin System. Locate the six necessary Railjack components, retrieve them, then return back to the Dry Dock to restore them to glory. Once your Railjack is rebuilt, you’ll be able to board and explore your ship. Ignition and flight command requires additional components, which have yet to be located by Cephalon Cy. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4437469/14fa6fb5b569610bc3be0a97f4a46200053f9762.jpg ORBITER 2.0 Your Orbiter needs to be in fighting shape to protect the Origin System.

Ahead of that, however, developer Digital Extremes is giving players the opportunity to prepare for launch in its Rising Tide update, out now on PC. In order to achieve lift-off when Empyrean lands later this year, Tenno will first need to gather - either working with clan members or alone - the resources required to construct their own Dry Dock. Once complete, this "an all-in-one workshop and garage" can be used to begin assembly of Warframe's new Railjack ships - although they'll remain grounded until Empyrean's arrival. In order to construct a Railjack, players will first need to obtain help from "reluctant" AI, Cephalon Cy, who'll assist in scouring the Origin System for lost Railjack technology. Quite how much scouring is required - and whether it's realistically achievable for solo players - remains to be seen. Digital Extremes notes that, following the launch of the Empyrean update, Tenno will be able to fully customise their completed battleship with new weapons, parts, and mods. Read more Warframe will let you start building your spaceship nowNov 22, 2019 - PC GamerUpdate: The update is live now, so start finding those ship parts!  Original story: Warframe, once a game about cyber-ninjas dashing through corridors, will soon let you build your own spaceship. Players can already travel between worlds in their landing craft and fight space battles in their Archwing, but the Railjack battleship will let them get into ship-to-ship scraps alongside a crew. Ship battles won't be available until the Empyrean expansion, but before that you'll have to hunt down parts and prepare a home for it in the upcoming Rising Tides update, coming to PC soon.  You'll need to build a dry dock to house the ship, which you can build alone or with the help of your pals. Once that's constructed, you'll need to start searching for the parts required to build your battleship with assistance from an AI buddy. When Empyrean launches, you'll be able to keep building, customising your ship with weapons, parts and mods.  Along with your new ship, the Liset landing craft is also getting some love. Basically it's going to look prettier. A moonroof is being installed! Very fancy. Expect enhanced lighting and updated machines, too. New weapons, armour and cosmetics will also be added with the update.  You'll have to hit up the marketplace for the new items, but the dry dock and ship will be available to everyone with the time to find the resources. While Digital Extremes says it's possible to do solo, I expect the resource requirement will be pretty high, so it might be time for you lone wolves to consider a clan.  There's no date for the Rising Tide update yet, but it should appear soon.  Today: Devstream 133!Nov 22, 2019 - Community AnnouncementsWho: Rebecca is joined by the usual crew!

Now, players can go toe-to-toe with their own personal nemesis, who'll relentlessly pursue them across the stars unless defeated. The Old Blood is a pretty sizeable update all round, ushering in developer Digital Extremes' second wave of melee combat improvements (including an overhauled Combo System), the new Grendel Warframe, and reworks for two existing ones: Ember and Vauban. It's the Kuva Lich nemesis system, however, that makes for the most intriguing addition. The Kuva Lich is a reworked version of Digital Extremes' previously teased Kingpin system, which was first discussed in a developer livestream all the way back in 2016 and which has evolved substantially since then. Inspired by Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor's Nemesis system, it presents players with a personal (and immortal) big bad that evolves over time. Read more Tennocon 2019 Sets a New All-Time Peak Record for Warframe’s Viewers on TwitchJul 8, 2019 - GitHypAfter Warframe’s second-annual Tennocon event only peaked with 17k live viewers on Twitch in 2017, last year, the team at Digital Extremes and Community Manager, Rebb Ford (aka Space Mom), figured out the secret to gaining viewers on Twitch using “the power of free shit.” Pairing new content reveals with free in-game rewards, 2018’s Tennocon saw 25 times the number of live viewers on Twitch with an impressive peak of 414k concurrent viewers. And this year, DE proved that last year was no fluke and once again set a new all-time peak for Warframe on Twitch with 417k live viewers tuning in to see what’s next for the popular free-to-play game and pickup free in-game content. In addition to a slick new intro cinematic from Dan Trachtenberg (10 Cloverfield Lane, Portal’s No Escape fan film), at this year's event, the devs also revealed two new Warframe suits and more gameplay for their upcoming free Empyrean expansion -- which they described as “Space GTA” with “Star Wars Battle of Endor moments.” But of course, what most tuned in for (as indicated by the spam of “!nekrosprime” text in chat) was the free Nekros Prime in-game Warframe suit that unlocked for viewers who watched for at least 30 consecutive minutes. Pulling in close to a half million viewers is certainly an impressive stat for a loot shooter on Twitch. Despite Warframe still remaining in Steam’s top 10 most played games today with over 100k players at times, the loot-grinding genre isn’t anywhere near as popular on Twitch with games like Warframe, Destiny 2, and Borderlands 2 usually averaging only a few thousands concurrent viewers each day. By maintaining a great relationship with their fans and hosting weekly Devstreams on Twitch, Digital Extremes has been one of the best developers at utilizing the popular streaming site to engage with their current player base and increase awareness of their game for potential new players. Considering that Warframe is also usually cited by gamers as one of the best free-to-play games, it’s no wonder that their team has figured out how to give away even more free content to keep players and viewers coming back for more every year.Warframe’s Fortuna Update Sets New All-Time Peak Player Count Record for the Game on SteamNov 12, 2018 - GitHypReleased back in 2013, Warframe’s player base is still growing with each new update that developer Digital Extremes releases for the free-to-play sci-fi shooter. Just a few months ago, Warframe’s highly anticipated story update, The Sacrifice, pushed the game to a new peak of 129k concurrent players on Steam. Before that, the game’s huge open world ‘Plains of Eidolon’ update spiked the player base to a record of 122k players at the time. Now, one year after PoE, Warframe is still going strong with its latest update ‘Fortuna’ that has once again set a new all-time peak of 132k concurrent players over the weekend on Steam. Warframe's increase in players comes as no surprise after we reported that viewer counts for the game's TennoCon event back in July were up 25x compared to last year on Twitch. Similar to the Plains update which introduced an open world environment for players to fly around and hunt new objectives in, Fortuna brings new ‘K-Drive’ hoverboards to the snowy landscape of Venus and its mysterious underground cybernetic city. Of course, as with every big Warframe update, there’s even more new content that has resulted in the game’s growth in players such as the ability to design and build new weapons and robotic companions, new enemies and bounties to capture, and a new blood-based Warframe by the name of Garuda. Considering the game's age, Warframe’s continued growth has exceeded expectations and is proof that free-to-play games can be embraced by the PC and console gaming communities if done right by the developers.Warframe’s TennoCon 2018 Had 25 Times the Number of Viewers on Twitch Compared to Last Year’s EventJul 9, 2018 - GitHypMost Warframe fans would agree, last year’s ‘Plains of Eidolon’ announcement at TennoCon marked the game’s biggest and best moment since it launched five years ago. But while last summer’s open-world reveal was a pivotal moment for the game, the live stream didn’t draw much attention on Twitch with a peak of only 17k live viewers and 33k concurrent viewers a few days later via popular streamer Lirik's channel. This year’s third annual event, however, had more viewers than ever who didn't want to miss out on the excitement of TennoCon. So many in fact, that Warframe’s 414k concurrent viewers was enough to make it the most watched game Saturday on Twitch -- and the second most watched game this week right behind Fortnite. Compared to last year, TennoCon 2018 brought in 25 times the number of viewers – or an increase of 2335% people watching on Twitch. Saturday’s peak also crushed the game’s previous peak of 88k viewers back in October 2017 when the Plains of Eidolon expansion officially launched. One of the reasons for the stream's success was the developers at Digital Extremes enticing their fans to watch on Twitch by giving away free loot drops. Those who tuned in for thirty consecutive minutes with their Twitch and Warframe accounts linked were rewarded with a Ash Prime in-game Warframe. The increase in viewers also reflects Warframe’s growing popularity on Steam. The free-to-play game's player base also saw a huge spike during PoE’s launch, peaking at 122k players in October. And more recently brought in 129k players last month for the latest ‘Sacrifice’ story update. With a new city, hoverboards, and ship-to-ship combat all coming soon in the 'Fortuna' update, this year's event certainly did not disappoint its new fan base. And with the developers’ continued support and even more players soon on Nintendo Switch, TennoCon is quickly becoming another can’t-miss annual event like BlizzCon and E3. Edit: We originally reported that the viewer count was up 13 times compared to last year, however, viewer counts for TennoCon 2017 were lower than we first thought. The 33k concurrent viewers were actually for a Lirik stream a few days after TennoCon and Digital Extreme's live stream only brought in a total of 17k concurrent viewers.
