By the time you read this, Fortuna may well be out and available to play on PC, but I simply had to share. Over the last couple of days, amongst all the other teases , videos, and excitement that Digital Extremes has otherwise been drumming up, Steve Sinclair still managed to drop a huge new nugget of info on us.
But it’s not quite what you think.
In reference to the new conservation “Track & Tranq” mode, in which players will be able to track endangered creatures on the Orb Vallis, and tranquilise them (for conservation purposes), not only will players perform this task for reputation, but they will also be able to trade in their “animal tags” (assuming these are awarded by saving the little critters) for… these.
If you don’t think they’re adorable, you’re wrong.
Using the name “Floofs” (which better not be an internal name, by the way), Steve went on to share another image showing that there will be quite a few to collect.
This is a really good thing for Warframe – adding something silly and cute to farm for, that really has no impact on the game apart from the cute factor. For many, these may be a pointless waste of time, and they may never feel the need to go hunting for them (beyond the need for the reputation grind, of course), but for others – like myself – we’ll need to hunt down… Every. Last. One.
Steve’s tweets for reference:
Here's conservation 1.0 lineup! Biz will trade animal tags for these. But hey, if cuteness, finding poop and rescuing animals isn't your thing, we also have a wacky Corpus unit called (internally) "Laser Face" for you to battle. pic.twitter.com/weGEcBgMED— Steve Sinclair (@sj_sinclair) November 7, 2018
So far, amongst our community at least (lovingly referred to as the “Cephalon Collective”), these Floofs are very well received.
Here are just a few examples of comments we’ve seen on our Facebook Group, Discord, and Twitter.
Fortuna can’t come soon enough.
