The clouds of Venus rise up and expose The Orb Vallis and the settlement of Fortuna, populated by Solarians, a society hardened by centuries of tough work and a terrible life conditions. They are survivors, because only the ones who can adapt survive here.
As you can see, the Solarians have had to modify their own bodies, improving them with Corpus technology or reinventing their own nature. These are the sacrifices the Solarians must do to be able to follow the wild rhythm of this settlement and keep their families alive.
Well Tenno, all the information you will find here is based on all we know to this day about Fortuna. Everything, absolutely everything is information without official confirmation. So, until we can land with our ships in the settlement and see with our own eyes the reality of Fortuna and the Solarians, we can only tell you the news the developers announce.
Remember that you can fast travel across the Fortuna settlement. You can access to this option through the menu.
Eudico: Bounties and Solarian Standing
Our main contact in the Fortuna settlement will be Eudico. Eudico is the leader of Solaris United group. A Solarian rebel faction who defend them and represent the interests of their people in front of the Tenno. When you speak with her you can access to the bounties she offers and see the rewards you obtain when you finish the different stages successfully.
Eudico also gives you access to the information about your situation with the Solarians. Here you can see the amount of Solarian Standing you have, and when you have enough, increase your rank. Something essential to have access to the best gear this faction can offer.
When you accumulate enough Solarian standing points, you can use them as currency to buy the goods offered by the merchants of Fortuna.
The Vallis: Locations
In the Orb Vallis you can find caves, rivers and lakes. Enter in weird forests with giant fungus and go to places where huge towers and Corpus statues rise. Getting lost will be quite easy in the Orb Vallis, so watch your steps, Tenno.
Resources: Mining, Fishing, Special Resources and Other Resources
As for the Special Resources and Other Resources we will have to wait until we can set our foot in the Orb Vallis to check it, but we are sure that we will find new and interesting resources with infinite possibilities.
Equipment: Garuda Warframe, Weapons, Kitguns, Mods, MOAs and Sentinels
Missions: Bounties and Railjack
Moreover, along with Fortuna and the Orb Vallis is expected the appearance of a new cooperative mission which reminds a bit of the Raids. In this mission you will have to lead and space strike with a new assault ship against huge Corpus ships in orbit.
Orb Vallis Movement: K-Drives and Archwings
To be honest, those who move on foot you will have the chance to see details you won’t see other way, as well as uncover hidden areas and places where you can mine, fish and obtain all kinds of resources.
Enemies: Corpus and Orb Mothers
In the Orb Vallis keep in mind that we are inside Corpus territory, and we will find many new units, vehicles and many other threats. For many Tenno this will be a challenge, however, others will call it entertainment.
Moreover you can also see and face some dangerous enemies, the Orb Mothers. These Juggernauts, huge mechanical beasts similar to four legged insects with a thick hull, move through the Vallis devastating everything on their path. If what the Developers said is true, there will be 4 different Orb Mothers which appear in different areas of the map.
One difference respect to Eidolons is that the Orb Mothers do not depend on the Day/Night Cycle, being able to find them patrolling anytime.
Quest: Vox Solaris
That’s all we can find out about this new open area in Warframe. Remember that until the day you can enter Fortuna all of this may change. And talking about WHEN, When do you think we can enter in the mysterious and dangerous surface of Venus? Will be this summer when we can enter Fortuna? Autum maybe? Either way it will be soon, What do you think, Tenno?
Be careful out there.
