On the heels of Warframe®'s recent Plains
of Eidolon Remaster comes the powerful new The Jovian Concord update, a full
graphic overhaul of the Tenno-favorite Jupiter tileset (AKA 'Gas City'), now
with reworked environments and gameplay. Reimagined with Warframe's modern
parkour movement in mind, The Jovian Concord enables Tenno to wield the powerful
40th Warframe 'Wisp' to experience a variety of new enemies including the deadly
new flying Eidolon boss. Canadian developer and publisher Digital Extremes' The
Jovian Concord will arrive on PC next week for free.
Beneath gaseous bronze clouds lies the opportunity to explore something
surprisingly new. The Jovian Concord reimagines the original Warframe
environment with a vast level of physical terrain, every inch offering a fresh
look and feel. Using nimble parkour skills, Tenno can explore internal heights
and face new hazards or gauge their chances outside by leaping through the air
along floating stations, distant platforms, crossbars, antennas, and more.
Longtime villain Alad V's twisted experiments with Sentient technology have
yielded hideous cyborg-like results -- Amalgam variants and Jetpack Agents --
whose laboratories hide a deeper sinister plot. Through new Sabotage, Rescue and
Spy missions, and even a new gameplay mode, "Disruption", Tenno will piece
together frightening tidbits of lore that could lay the groundwork for a looming
war -- all before confronting Gas City's deadliest threat, the ever-present
menace the Ropalolyst.
The Jovian Concord brings with it the second new Warframe of 2019, the ethereal
Wisp. Players will float across the battlefield with her light-based Abilities
to provide support to allies while wielding her unique Passive, turning her
invisible in air. Her Abilities include:
- RESERVOIRS: Choose and summon a Reservoir
filled with Motes that attach to and aid Wisp and her allies. Haste Mote
grants increased movement and attack speed. Vitality Mote increases maximum
health and heals over time. Shock Mote stuns nearby enemies.
- WIL-O-WISP: Cast forward a spectral image
of Wisp to confuse and distract enemies. Reactivate to travel to its
position. Hold to have the image travel faster and teleport to its position
- BREACH SURGE: Open a dimensional breach to
overwhelm nearby enemies and cause them to release aggressive Surge sparks
- SOL GATE: Open a portal to the sun to
irradiate enemies with a devastating beam of pure solar plasma.

Arata Mizunashi, a video game programmer, receives a
notification from an email sent to him by Shina Ninomiya, a colleague of his who
went missing nearly one year ago. Together, they worked to create World’s
Odyssey (W.O.D.), an immersive virtual landscape powered by breathtaking,
state-of-the-art technology. That is, until Shina's sudden disappearance put a
swift halt to production. Arata discovers the startling revelation that Shina
Ninomiya was stuck inside of “W.O.D.” the whole time. When Arata delves
hurriedly back into the lines of code haunting his forsaken project, he realizes
that his game is now ravaged by an infestation of bugs, and that Shina is its
only active player.
Arata soon learns that a nefarious force prevents him from extracting Shina out
of the game. Her only way out? She must complete the game to unlock the perfect
ending—an outcome with a success rate of 1%. On their journey, they encounter a
slew of NPC characters that blur perceptions of humanity and A.I.-technology,
setting into a motion a thrilling narrative that calls into question the
differences between the virtual world and ours.

Fassbender, Foxx, Dinklage Up For "Wild Bunch."
Please. Just. Don't. Feel
free to make more remakes of pretty good westerns such as The Magnificent
and True Grit
. There are plenty out there where you can justify
another take on the concept. But The Wild Bunch
is Sam Peckinpah's
masterpiece, and I don't see how you can do it justice. The only thing that
would upset me more is if someone decided to start remaking Sergio Leone movies.
I may need to round up a posse and go after these outlaws.
