Warframe developer Digital Extremes presented their TennoCon 2022 livestream on their Twitch channel today. Today’s primary focus is detailing newer content in the works for the players who play it consistently, and a ton of new content has been showcased today. Let’s break down the most critical information, starting with The Duviri Paradox.
The Duviri Paradox will be released this winter and comes with a new open-world locale known as Duviri. Players can control The Drifter, a returning character from last year’s The New War quest, and gain access to a Kaithe, a new horse-like mount available to players in the quest.
In the opening mission of the Duviri Paradox, players must take control of The Drifter and escape your execution, then escape Duviri. The expansion also has rogue-like elements, where in a daily session you can choose one of three decrees that grant you different buffs during your time in Duviri.
Second, the game’s 36th Prime Warframe, known as Khora Prime, will also be added. Khora Prime will also be released with two new Prime weapons, the Hystrix Prime and Dual Keres Prime. Adding Khora Prime to the game also means a new Prime Access bundle will be released (and Garuda Prime Access will be removed from the store). The Khora Prime Access Bundle includes:
- Khora Prime (Playable Warframe)
- Venari Prime (loyal companion of Khora Prime)
- Hystrix Prime, a secondary weapon that allows you to change the type of damage at will
- Dual Keres Prime, a dual-wield melee weapon
- Platinum (in-game currency)
- an affinity booster
- a Resource Booster
- and two cosmetics for Khora Prime
- a Khora Prime alternate helmet
- a Khora Prime Syandana.
A new cosmetic set for Titania (and then Titania Prime) was also revealed, the Deluxe v2 or Dornann Set. This comes with a skin that can be equipped on Titania (and Titania Prime), along with cosmetics for her Razorwing weapons, the Dex Pixia and Diwata. This new cosmetic set is now available through the cosmetics store.
Going forward, the Warframe Art Panel also revealed a future Warframe designed in collaboration with Joe Madureira (better known as Joe Mad), who is known for his work on comics like Uncanny X-Men and his own Battle Chasers comic. This Warframe has a werewolf-like motif and will not The next war frame. However, it will definitely come to the game.
Crossplay is also another hot-button topic for Warframe, and players will be able to see it happen as community tests open soon. That said, when these crossplay stress tests are done, cross-save is expected to follow, and finally, mobile versions could follow.
Moving on, Nightwave, the game’s battle pass-like system, will update Nora’s Mix Vol.2. Players can unlock a number of new cosmetics for their Operator, which you can see above. Nightwave is a program that allows you to complete challenges to unlock levels, which will give you valuable items such as Umbra Formas, Orokin Catalysts, Orokin Reactors, powerful Mods and more.
Next up is a teaser trailer for Veilbreaker, a new expansion for Warframe, which will be released before The Duviri Paradox. This expansion allows you to play as Kahl again, and he is a Grineer Lancer who was initially playable in the quest The New War. Veilbreaker has an entire teaser trailer that you can check out below.
Adding to the Veilbreaker trailer, Styanax, the game’s 50th unique Warframe, was teased here, and Digital Extremes will release a short film about him closer to Veilbreaker’s release date.
To close out TennoCon 2022, Digital Extremes announced that the team would also be working on a brand new game called Soulframe. It’s less of a sequel and more of a sister project to Warframe. It will still have Warframe’s focus on cooperative player vs environment combat and procedurally generated environments, but it will be “the mirror universe version of Warframe”.
Soulframe development is overseen by former Warframe director Steve Sinclair. As he progresses through the new game, the long-time face of the development team, Rebb Ford, takes charge of the sci-fi epic as the new creative director. She’s had that role for a while. Soulframe received a five minute reveal trailer, which you can watch below.
Warframe is now available for download on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam, the Epic Games Store and its own download client.
