Digital Extremes has revealed more of the new features included in the next content expansion for Warframe.
The New War is the upcoming cinematic quest line for the free-to-play online action game Warframe.
Act 1 gives players the chance to assume the roles of iconic enemies – Kahl-175, Veso, and Teshin – each with new play styles. The quest line will take place across three acts, the last two of which remain closely guarded secrets.
A new trailer – which debuted on Digital Extremes’ Devstream #158 – teases the adventures in store.
Here’s some more information, straight from Digital Extremes.
New Warframe – Caliban
Erra’s twisted masterpiece, a true hybrid of Warframe and Sentient. Raised from the wreckage of the Old War to carve a swathe through the New. Caliban is Warframe’s 48th unique playable Warframe and will be added to the game on all platforms on December 15 when The New War launches. A Sentient-Warframe hybrid, Caliban has a passive Ability to resist damage types as he continues to take hits (for himself and his squadmates). Caliban was first revealed during TennoCon 2021’s Art of Warframe digital panel.
- Passive Ability: Adaptive Armor – Allies within Affinity range gain increased resistance to the types of damage they are currently taking.
- Razor Gyre – Become a spinning vortex of death. Hold Fire to accelerate the maelstrom, increasing damage, then target an enemy to dash toward them. Hitting enemies inflicted with Sentient Wrath creates a destructive blast.
- Sentient Wrath – Smash the ground sending out a wave of destruction. Those not killed by the initial blast are helplessly lifted into the air where they continue to suffer damage for a short time.
- Lethal Progeny – Call on Caliban’s Sentient aspect to produce up to three Conculyst comrades to fight by his side, and repair shields when not in combat.
- Fusion Strike – Converge three streams of raw energy upon a single point, causing a massive reactive blast. The fallout from the blast will strip the armor from all enemies that touch it.
Harrow Prime Access
Harrow Prime Access will launch on December 15 alongside The New War and for a limited-time, players can instantly unlock or earn Harrow Prime and his signature Weapons and Accessories. Always prepared to sacrifice, this monastic Warframe uses the Void to bolster allies’ defenses and amplify their lethality.
- Scourge Prime – Smite the unrighteous with Harrow Prime’s signature speargun
- Knell Prime – Ring a funeral toll upon enemy skulls with Harrow Prime’s signature pistol
- Prime Accessories
- Nave Prime Syandana: Invest Harrow Prime with this golden Syandana of holy office
- Templar Prime Suit: The dress uniform worn with pride by Harrow’s faithful legions
Warframe The New War begins on Wednesday, December 15. Warframe is available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store.
