One really cannot complain with just how much content has been added to Warframe in the many years the game has been active – after all, Warframe is a free-to-play title, and a very exciting, action-packed one at that. The New War is a major expansion that builds upon the Warframe universe with regards to story, weapons, customisation options, and of course the iconic Warframes themselves.
Warframe is simply one big space orchestra, with a plethora of quests to tackle in slick, third-person shooting and combat. You will be jetting out to sprawling open world environments, tackling all manner of threats, and deploying a number of abilities unique to each Warframe – of which there are now 48. Think Destiny in terms of just how much sci-fi is present within this sprawling adventure.
“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.”
“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.”
With The New War comes a new opportunity to put those combat skills to the test, as a number of new quests and foes will become available to the player. Before heading into The New War’s content, and if you wish to brush up on your skills or upgrade your weapons before jumping in to the main quests of The New War, you must complete some pre-quests as part of the Prime Resurgence event, which has been in-game for some time now. For any new player, getting to grips with the many systems of Warframe’s in-depth weaponry and customisation is highly recommended.
Warframe – The New War is available to journey through on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, Switch and PC later today. For all things Xbox, head on over to the Xbox Store to download Warframe for yourself, free of charge.
