WARFRAME’S LARGEST STORY-BASED CINEMATIC EXPANSION, THE NEW WAR, ARRIVES DECEMBER 15 ON ALL PLATFORMS
Warframe Players Will ‘Discover Their Power Within’ Through an Action-Packed Cinematic Story of Space Exploration and Self-Discovery in an Attempt to Restore Balance to the Fractured Origin System in this Next Chapter of the Award-Winning Sci-Fi Action Game

LONDON, Ontario - November 30, 2021 - Warframe developer Digital Extremes will launch the award-winning action game’s largest and most ambitious cinematic expansion, The New War, for all platforms on Wednesday, December 15. The announcement was revealed in Warframe’s final Devstream of the year dedicated to The New War where Digital Extremes premiered the action-packed CG Discover Your Power Within story trailer, hosted giveaways and Twitch Drops, and confirmed critical details about how to play The New War when it arrives on December 15.

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. A 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: <4744>https://youtu.be/Tua7aK6Y7NY.

“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.

  • Melmoth

    Melmoth In many ways it gave me a Last of Us vibe. Well written, strong voice actors and presentation, but the gameplay didn't hit the spot for me. I can still understand why so many people like those games (47 minutes ago)

  • Melmoth

    Melmoth the vista by running it in 21:9 aspect ration (even though i have a 16:9 tv), which gives more picture information on both sides and worked well for the horizontal design of the level design. (51 minutes ago)

  • Melmoth

    Melmoth Having the close over-the-shoulder camera works great for the seamless-camera style presentation they went for, but it's problematic for spacial awareness in larger fights. It did help a bit to widen. (52 minutes ago)

  • Melmoth

    Melmoth The mostly two-dimensional level design and not-as-sharp combat combined with a lot of polished animated auto-platforming and transitions made it good, just not a great gaming experience for me. (55 minutes ago)

  • Melmoth

    Melmoth to play it. There's no doubt an enormous amount of work put into all the small details and craftmansship in all assets of the game. Very polished presentation. But coming straight off Sekiro, the game (57 minutes ago)

  • Melmoth

    Melmoth @Sdarts: I had a very similar experience. I got it for PC on release. I already had the game on PS4 for a few years, but still shrinkwrapped. So i thought the high quality PC release was a good way.. (59 minutes ago)

  • Sdarts

    Sdarts Anyway, just my stupid opinion and it's not meant to be an attack or hurt anyone, I just had a 8/10 experience. That is all. Though the game does have serious flaws. (19 Hours ago)
