New Player Experience From a New Player’s Perspective

Warframe7 - New Player Experience From a New Player's Perspective

Hello, I'm making this as I've seen many people mention how bad the new player experience is. So as a new player, I thought it would be helpful to give my perspective to understand what issues there are in it. For a bit of background, I've tried about 6 times since 2013 to play Warframe but this time I stuck around and I've really been enjoying the game. I've got a 60 hours in the last 2 weeks and the only thing that changed for me was having a friend with a bunch of Warframe knowledge help me understand things.

It's a lot harder to get into a game when you know nothing that's going on. When your basic knowledge of a game is "Space ninjas go brr" it's not very interesting to continue. Having my friend explain things and what's going on helped a lot. My main problem with the new player experience is how little context it gives you. I have no idea what's going on in the world as it seems the newer quests were built around you already knowing game lore but the game pushes new players toward new content instead of the beginner game content. There are also some mechanics that I wouldn't understand without my friend around. Questions I've had during my 60 hours include things like: Who are and what is their role? What is an Aura mod? When does this quest occur in the game universe? Where did this character enter in the story? Why am I unlocking more quests seemingly at random? How do I get more blueprints? Most of these things I had to learn from my friend as the game either mentioned nothing or very little.


I can see where the quest system and junctions try to help pace new players and keep them pinned to one quest line at a time, but I do not for the life of me know who Lotus is because the game is dividing me between so many tasks. I've gone from Plains of Eidolon, Fortuna, Deimos, individual quests, planets, all this, and the player is just divided among so many different things it's easy to forget. This is the first thing I think should be fixed. Take the entire Quest tab in the Codex and rework it to show questlines, milestones, unlocked items, new mechanics introduce, etc., sort of like the Tech tree in Civilization 6. The best way I could explain this is a garbage MS Paint image, so here you go.

I did my best. Also I only knew the chronology of the main quests because I found it on the wiki, not because of the game itself.

Anyway, that's my opinion, sorry for the long wall of text. I think when the quest system is more intuitive to new players and they have a better understanding of what's going on in the game's world, they'll have a better time.
