Hildryn will make her Warframe debut next week.
While we don’t have a final date for Hildryn’s arrival per se, the latest developer stream from Warframe developer Digital Extremes, which also included a number of features in development as well as an update regarding the melee changes, confirmed that it was expected next week to implement.
ICYMI, Hildryn is a shield-based framework. Her abilities do not consume energy but instead draw from her shield pool and instead of the regular primary / secondary / melee signature weapon she will come with her own Archwing weapon.
Your first ability is the energy starter Balefire, followed by Shield Pillage, which you can use to steal shields and armor from your enemies. The third ability, Haven, also drains shields from enemies and replenishes your and your teammates. Oh, and she can be a helicopter too. You can see them in action in the video below, about half an hour later (thanks, PCGN):
Steven gave us an overview of Warframe’s “massive” roadmap for 2019, which includes plans for an overhaul of the game’s daily alert and challenge missions. Digital Extremes kicked off this new system a few days ago with the launch of The Wolf of Saturn Six, the first in a series of Nightwave radio events “based on fresh, instant story gameplay.”
