'Warframe' The New War Expansion Gets Release Date, Details - Trailer

by Rainier on Nov. 30, 2021 @ 2:54 p.m. PST

WarFrame is a free-to-play fast-action co-op focused shooter set in an evolving sci-fi world.

Set in the far reaches of outer space during a new Dark Age, WarFrame introduces the Tenno, a race on the brink of extinction after being enslaved by the Grineer for centuries. Players enter WarFrame on the cusp of the Grineer's victory over the Tenno until they begin to arm themselves with WarFrames - an ancient exo-skeletal technology only they can operate. Hidden within the Orokin Derelicts of a lost civilization, new WarFrames lie dormant and undiscovered. These artifacts are the Tenno's only hope for survival.

WarFrame is a free-to-play fast-action PvE shooter set in an evolving sci-fi world. Some would call it MMO-Lite as squads of four players band together to advance their characters and battle the oppression of the genocidal Grineer. Throughout their combat missions, players will continually increase the power and abilities of their WarFrame and weapons. Players will raid new areas of space searching for exotic and powerful weapons and WarFrame augmentations to customize their arsenal. With WarFrame's Automatic Mission Generator, the game will offer endless replay as levels are procedurally configured for a unique raid -- every time.

Developer Digital Extremes will launch Warframe’s largest and most ambitious cinematic expansion, The New War, on Wednesday, December 15, 2021.

Rife with non-stop action, smooth combat, and featuring one of the most welcoming communities in online gaming, Warframe is inviting new and returning players to discover its free Cinematic Quest line, combining a personal story of self-discovery with an action-packed space opera that takes players across 16 planets with 3 Open Worlds as they restore balance to the fractured Origin System.

The new cinematic CG trailer created by Blur Studios (Netflix’s Love Death + Robots) reveals the face behind a Warframe while delivering more of Warframe’s signature gut-punching action and shining light on defining moments between the players and the Lotus.

“Just as players have waited so long for this climactic moment in Warframe, we too have eagerly awaited the time where players would be able to experience the emotional depth and action of The New War that we’ve created for them,” said Rebecca Ford, Director of Community and Live Operations. “We can’t wait to experience The New War alongside our players and deliver a continuation in Warframe’s story that we’ll be able to build and expand upon. The future is bright, Tenno.”

The next and biggest chapter in Warframe’s free Cinematic Quest line, The New War will see players controlling new playable characters for the very first time as they work through dramatic twists and turns across 3 Acts. As they experience various Missions in new environments, including Open Worlds besieged by Sentients, players will overcome dangerous new threats and challenges while unearthing answers to long-standing questions about Warframe’s sprawling sci-fi universe. Take control of iconic enemies including Kahl-175 the Grineer, Veso the Corpus Tech, and the Dax: Teshin, as they fight across the Origin System to push back the invading Sentient force.  While the war rages on, so will the fight for the truth behind the conflict - understanding the Lotus’ past to unlock a new future. Additional features launching with The New War include new Customizations, Weapons, and Accessories, along with Warframe’s 48th unique Warframe, Caliban - a Sentient-Warframe hybrid.

“Warframe’s story is everything to us. The New War is the experience players have wanted since the quest title was first revealed at TennoCon 2018,” said Steve Sinclair, Creative Director at Digital Extremes. “This moment is the culmination of years of experimentation in game development and feeding the beast that is Warframe. Our community has given us everything to let us continue the story that is both ours and theirs - Warframe is a shared experience. With the launch of The New War, players will have a definitive Warframe experience at their fingertips, and it sets the stage for Warframe’s continued growth. We’ve only just begun.”

New Warframe players, and those returning to the game to experience its Cinematic Quest, will now find it easier to navigate Warframe’s Quest line with the Tenno Guide, a UI improvement recently introduced to help guide new players complete their next steps in Warframe’s Cinematic Quest. This new feature is auto-enabled on log in, and can be disabled at any time in the menus under Options. Additional quality of life improvements have also been made to significantly reduce grind time in Warframe for players on the Cinematic Quest track.

Players can start preparing for the action of The New War today by jumping into Warframe and participating in its Prime Resurgence event where players can instantly gain access or earn a vast selection of the game's rarest and most powerful Prime Warframes and gear for a limited-time only.
