During the Devstream today, the Warframe devs showed off the upcoming “Glass” frame in all her glory and answered a few questions we’ve all had about her since her initial announcement at TennoCon this year. While her aesthetic has been debated over tirelessly by players, we haven’t had much else to discuss.
Now, it has been confirmed that Glass frame will be found through playing the Plains of Eidolon. The Plains of Eidolon (PoE) is an open-world map coming to Warframe in the future. According to the developers, there are “shovels in the ground” for a Plains of Eidolon-related way to acquire the Glass frame. As the PoE is said to be very story heavy, it should come as no surprise that a Warframe would be linked to it in one way or another.
We also know that none of her abilities have been confirmed. In fact, they were recently tested and trashed which means it could be a while before we finally see her in-game. During TennoCon in July, it was said in reference to the theme of glass that Glass frame’s abilities would not necessarily be centered around “smashing or reflection or cutting” but rather focus on “the hot molten glass theme”.
What that means for what kind of abilities we’ll be seeing from her, we can’t say. In terms of physical appearance, we now know that Glass frame’s glass will, indeed, be tint-able. According to Community Manager Rebecca Ford, the glass colour may be determined by your choice of energy colour, so get those fashion frame concepts going.
Overall, we know very little about the upcoming Glass frame but it is likely that we will hear more on her progress very soon. If there’s one thing Digital Extremes is great at, it’s keeping their community in the loop when it comes to game updates.
What do you think of the Glass frame? Will you be playing her when she comes out? And what abilities are you hoping from in the category of “hot molten glass”? Let us know!
