Biggest Update of the Year Takes Players on a Thrilling Multi-stage Cinematic Journey to Save the Tenno
LONDON, ON – December 12, 2016 – Independent developer and publisher, Digital Extremes, has launched The War Within, its biggest, most comprehensive Warframe update of 2016, on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The War Within contains a highly-anticipated cinematic quest as a continuation of The Second Dream – the free-to-play action game’s most played release to date – and drives players on a chilling journey through new missions, planets, and stunning lore-filled cinematics. In celebration of this monumental update, Digital Extremes launched a massive Warframe Prime Gaming Giveaway as a thank you to its community.
Released free to download on PC earlier this year, The War Within brought record-breaking results. Hitting an all-time high of 68,530 concurrent players, Warframe rocketed into the top three games on Steam during the release weekend. Now it is console players’ turn to have a taste of this epic update.
Since the Tenno have awoken, whispers of the Grineer Queens’ presence have echoed throughout the system. What secrets lay hidden within their shadowy empire? Venture into their fortress to unravel the mysteries of the Tenno’s past and discover their true abilities. But beware, this path is not an easy one. Underpowered and unprepared, players must be willing to test the limits of their strength in new and unsettling ways, not only to save themselves but the fate of their entire kind.
Feature additions include new gameplay, enemies, weapons, customizations, a new mission type, dozens of story secrets, and more:
- LORE-DRIVEN CINEMATIC QUEST: The Queen’s Fortress is a maze of caves littered with advanced Grineer technology, the likes of which Tenno have never seen before. Be careful! The Fortress is heavily guarded with new and dangerous foes. Bypass their heavy defenses and enter the Queens’ Chamber to uncover the secrets of an empire.
- NEW ENEMIES: A new breed of Grineer comes to light. Wearing heavy armor and adorned in red cloth, the Kuva Guardians are among the fighting elite in the Queens’ army. Beware the mischievous jester-like creatures that often accompany them; while small, their attacks are quick and deadly.
- NEW WEAPONS: Dominate your enemies with these powerful new weapons:
- Twin Rogga – Dual pistols capable of assassinating targets from a distance as well as in combat.
- Zarr – Akin to a sci-fi musket, this heavy-hitting weapon that packs enough power to kill multiple enemies or even larger enemies at point-blank range with a single shot.
- Kesheg – A shimmering, ornate melee staff that is extremely dangerous up close.
- NEW CUSTOMIZATIONS: Give your Warframes, landing crafts, and companions a new look with a new syandana, sugatra, armor and skins.
- NEW MISSION TYPE: In the new mission type ‘Assault,’ players engage in a multi-stage stealth and action mission where they breach an enemy base in an asteroid field to prevent an attack.
