The devs at Digital Extremes are heading out for the holidays, but not without offering a few ideas on what to expect from the game as we head into the new year. We're going to see a lot more than the "clean-up and lead-up" that defined Warframe's 2021, including new ways to play with the stuff that's been introduced in New War. "I saw a lot of 'wish this gameplay stayed' and we share that feeling as well, so there will be some exciting experiments in bringing those change ups into the game in other ways that aren't purely Quest driven," director Steve Sinclair explains in a message to players. "We dedicated our Update 31: The New War to the Quest alone given its scope, and we dedicate 2022 to what comes next: a year full of doing the right things for Warframe. "2021 was all about clean-up and lead-up to The New War. We did our revisits of Railjack, Arsenals, tied together the Proxima & Ground with Liches & Sisters. But now, we have never felt more energized to work on Warframe, and we owe it to you to make 2022 our best year yet." Read the rest of the story...

Read more.Warframe's New War update was shaped by pandemic traumaDec 8, 2021 - PCGamesNThe last several years have seen space-action MMO Warframe grow in ways that have frequently been astonishing. Since 2017, Canadian developer Digital Extremes has expanded Warframe with huge open-world zones, added ship-to-ship space combat with Railjacks, and even created zombified mechs for players to pilot into battle. The New War expansion promises to tie all of this together in the largest narrative update so far, setting Warframe up for a new era - and it's been heavily shaped by almost two years of pandemic lockdowns and isolation. Rebecca Ford is one of the most recognisable faces of Warframe. Ford is the director of community and live operations at Digital Extremes, and she hosts the studio's regular developer streams, keeping the community updated on what's on the way for Warframe. In-game, however, she's the ever-present voice of the Lotus, the player's mysterious guide. Ford has now worked on Warframe for nine years, and says the New War is the proudest she's ever been of something the studio has made. "I find myself looking at the depth of this quest, emotionally, creatively, collaboratively," Ford tells us. "The team has never been bigger, the team has never been through more hardships, in terms of COVID-19 and working from home, and yet somehow, throughout it all, the New War has come together. And it's taken so much inspiration from the team itself, so for me to look at it in its current state and see what we're doing, I am just so proud." Read the rest of the story...

The New War, which launches December 15, unites not only all of Warframe's disparate factions in the face of an ancient menace, it also leverages all of Warframe's new systems and play modes. In the New War, the Tenno are faced with their greatest threat: the Sentient, an artificial form of life that laid waste to the Origin System - you know, the one with Earth in it - back during the Old War. It was the invasion of the Sentients that prompted the development of warframes to begin with, and this time, the Tenno are going to need all the help they can muster in order to match their threat. In the new expansion, players will join forces and even play as members of the Grineer and Corpus, who've traditionally been the Tenno's enemies in Warframe. Grineer lancer Kahl-175, Corpus technician Veso, and ancient Dax soldier Teshin are all playable over the course of New War's new cinematic questline. Read the rest of the story...

Years of narrative threads are coming together with the arrival of Erra, the Sentient Invasion, and a fated confrontation between us the players and our old ally The Lotus. But that begs the question, what exactly can we expect from The New War? Last week, we were invited to an early look at Warframe’s upcoming update alongside other members of the press and content creators. From this early showcase, we’ve got a good idea of what you can expect come December 15. To help you get an idea of what to expect, we’ve listed all the information we’ve learnt below!

Read more Warframe's just got a new gorgeous cinematic trailerDec 1, 2021 - VG247Heads up all you space Ninjas out there, there’s a new cinematic trailer for the upcoming Warframe Quest The New War that has dropped alongside a December 15 release date. Revealed during a Warframe dev stream, the cinematic shows a confrontation between a Tenno - the race of warframe piloting space ninjas - confronting the sentients. This includes a seemingly ultimate fight against The Lotus, a critical character to the story of Warframe and once assistant to the player through much of the early game. If you want to check it out yourself, you can see the trailer embedded below. The New War update is the culmination of years worth of story developments in Warframe, with the gigantic invasion of sentient forces being hinted towards for some time now. Players will be able to experience the continuation of their character’s story firsthand, as well as see it through the eyes of several other characters including Grineer Kahl-175 and Veso the Corpus Tech. Read more Tennocon 2019 Sets a New All-Time Peak Record for Warframe’s Viewers on TwitchJul 8, 2019 - GitHypAfter Warframe’s second-annual Tennocon event only peaked with 17k live viewers on Twitch in 2017, last year, the team at Digital Extremes and Community Manager, Rebb Ford (aka Space Mom), figured out the secret to gaining viewers on Twitch using “the power of free shit.” Pairing new content reveals with free in-game rewards, 2018’s Tennocon saw 25 times the number of live viewers on Twitch with an impressive peak of 414k concurrent viewers. And this year, DE proved that last year was no fluke and once again set a new all-time peak for Warframe on Twitch with 417k live viewers tuning in to see what’s next for the popular free-to-play game and pickup free in-game content. In addition to a slick new intro cinematic from Dan Trachtenberg (10 Cloverfield Lane, Portal’s No Escape fan film), at this year's event, the devs also revealed two new Warframe suits and more gameplay for their upcoming free Empyrean expansion -- which they described as “Space GTA” with “Star Wars Battle of Endor moments.” But of course, what most tuned in for (as indicated by the spam of “!nekrosprime” text in chat) was the free Nekros Prime in-game Warframe suit that unlocked for viewers who watched for at least 30 consecutive minutes. Pulling in close to a half million viewers is certainly an impressive stat for a loot shooter on Twitch. Despite Warframe still remaining in Steam’s top 10 most played games today with over 100k players at times, the loot-grinding genre isn’t anywhere near as popular on Twitch with games like Warframe, Destiny 2, and Borderlands 2 usually averaging only a few thousands concurrent viewers each day. By maintaining a great relationship with their fans and hosting weekly Devstreams on Twitch, Digital Extremes has been one of the best developers at utilizing the popular streaming site to engage with their current player base and increase awareness of their game for potential new players. Considering that Warframe is also usually cited by gamers as one of the best free-to-play games, it’s no wonder that their team has figured out how to give away even more free content to keep players and viewers coming back for more every year.Warframe’s Fortuna Update Sets New All-Time Peak Player Count Record for the Game on SteamNov 12, 2018 - GitHypReleased back in 2013, Warframe’s player base is still growing with each new update that developer Digital Extremes releases for the free-to-play sci-fi shooter. Just a few months ago, Warframe’s highly anticipated story update, The Sacrifice, pushed the game to a new peak of 129k concurrent players on Steam. Before that, the game’s huge open world ‘Plains of Eidolon’ update spiked the player base to a record of 122k players at the time. Now, one year after PoE, Warframe is still going strong with its latest update ‘Fortuna’ that has once again set a new all-time peak of 132k concurrent players over the weekend on Steam. Warframe's increase in players comes as no surprise after we reported that viewer counts for the game's TennoCon event back in July were up 25x compared to last year on Twitch. Similar to the Plains update which introduced an open world environment for players to fly around and hunt new objectives in, Fortuna brings new ‘K-Drive’ hoverboards to the snowy landscape of Venus and its mysterious underground cybernetic city. Of course, as with every big Warframe update, there’s even more new content that has resulted in the game’s growth in players such as the ability to design and build new weapons and robotic companions, new enemies and bounties to capture, and a new blood-based Warframe by the name of Garuda. Considering the game's age, Warframe’s continued growth has exceeded expectations and is proof that free-to-play games can be embraced by the PC and console gaming communities if done right by the developers.Warframe’s TennoCon 2018 Had 25 Times the Number of Viewers on Twitch Compared to Last Year’s EventJul 9, 2018 - GitHypMost Warframe fans would agree, last year’s ‘Plains of Eidolon’ announcement at TennoCon marked the game’s biggest and best moment since it launched five years ago. But while last summer’s open-world reveal was a pivotal moment for the game, the live stream didn’t draw much attention on Twitch with a peak of only 17k live viewers and 33k concurrent viewers a few days later via popular streamer Lirik's channel. This year’s third annual event, however, had more viewers than ever who didn't want to miss out on the excitement of TennoCon. So many in fact, that Warframe’s 414k concurrent viewers was enough to make it the most watched game Saturday on Twitch -- and the second most watched game this week right behind Fortnite. Compared to last year, TennoCon 2018 brought in 25 times the number of viewers – or an increase of 2335% people watching on Twitch. Saturday’s peak also crushed the game’s previous peak of 88k viewers back in October 2017 when the Plains of Eidolon expansion officially launched. One of the reasons for the stream's success was the developers at Digital Extremes enticing their fans to watch on Twitch by giving away free loot drops. Those who tuned in for thirty consecutive minutes with their Twitch and Warframe accounts linked were rewarded with a Ash Prime in-game Warframe. The increase in viewers also reflects Warframe’s growing popularity on Steam. The free-to-play game's player base also saw a huge spike during PoE’s launch, peaking at 122k players in October. And more recently brought in 129k players last month for the latest ‘Sacrifice’ story update. With a new city, hoverboards, and ship-to-ship combat all coming soon in the 'Fortuna' update, this year's event certainly did not disappoint its new fan base. And with the developers’ continued support and even more players soon on Nintendo Switch, TennoCon is quickly becoming another can’t-miss annual event like BlizzCon and E3. Edit: We originally reported that the viewer count was up 13 times compared to last year, however, viewer counts for TennoCon 2017 were lower than we first thought. The 33k concurrent viewers were actually for a Lirik stream a few days after TennoCon and Digital Extreme's live stream only brought in a total of 17k concurrent viewers.
