Honestly I’m not that excited about the Venus thing. Just doesn’t do it for me. Plains was cool at first, but ultimately a let-down. It ended up being a way for them to jam space kids down our throats more by making that the sole source of arcanes.
And the fact that they’re adding entirely new materials for Venus just annoys me, because it’s going to be another disgusting grindfest. Farm fish, gemstones, and wild animals on plains. Venus you farm for basically the same stuff, but its colder outside.
The only thing I can say I wanna do there is make my own gun. Custom guns are gonna be nice, even if they’re as limited as Zaws are. I wanna make something goofy. Sadly, that also means doing the idiotic and inevitable grind for standing.
As for the kingpin system, I don’t know where they’re taking that. It was kinda odd the first time it was pitched, but it felt like a ramped up version of the existing assassin system with Stalkerbro, G3, and RoboDog. They said there were a lot of changes to it, though, so it could be interesting.
I expect DE to be riding the high from Sacrifice dropping, though. If the time between the last 3 cinematic quests is anything to go by, we might get a teaser this year for something they might release some time around next tennocon. But I honestly kinda doubt that.
Wouldn’t expect a cinematic quest (which we would absolutely have to introduce the Tau system) for at least another year. Given their track record, that’s not a bad bet, either.
I sound like such a pessimist, but this is what happens every year. I don’t expect any more than Venus, the new frame to be revealed, and maybe a surprise short quest or two.
