Livestream of a major release by a big game

Postby Steve C » Fri Oct 13, 2017 12:08 am

Digital Extremes have regular streams making them pretty open about the development of Warframe. Today they took transparency to a new level and livestreamed the 4 hours before today's major release. I believe this update was 4Gigs. The original game was 3Gigs.

The stream is over now. If you want to watch the behind the scenes of a major release by a AAA developer from the perspective of the guy in charge, here it is:

BTW they never know if it's going to go well or not. As evidenced by:

Warframe can really only do this because it's A - A co-op 4 player game, and B- It's PvE. [C- It's also not primarily story based]

Wouldn't really call Warfame AAA developers. Sure they probably do well for themselves, but it's been build over the past... 4 years. It's more like Destiny, but takes itself less seriously. Also over the course of the four years it's come up with a wealth of stuff to do. Pets, Sentinels, Kuva, Riven Mods, Relic refinement, Primes, Dojos, Major Story patches, new modes, and constant new Warframes make for plenty to learn and do. It's definitely a game that's fun to check up on for a few months a couple times a year.

I don't see how that follows regarding the whole stream thing.
