Along with community testing happening later this year, this is a major step in fulfilling our promise to bring Cross Play to Warframe. This is the first of many steps we are taking to unify systems that are per-database timers (Relics, Vendors, etc) - more to come on that at a later date! Starting Friday July 29, Baro will visit the Earth Strata Relay and carry the same inventory regardless of what platform you’re playing on. This is especially great news for console players, as Baro’s console inventory will no longer be several weeks behind his PC manifest. As part of this change, please note that Baro’s inventory will remain the same for his next three visits, until the end of August. To thank you for your patience, we’re excited to announce that Baro will be selling several brand new items, including an all-new Baro-themed Armor Set and Syandana, several The New War-themed Noggle Statues, and more! These items will be available each time Baro visits from now until the end of August, so you’ll have plenty of time to earn the Ducats needed to purchase everything. This is in addition to nearly 100 other items that will be available during his next three visits. Double Resource Event Rerun Baro’s synced inventory won’t be the only reason to jump into the Origin System on Friday. As previously announced, we’re rerunning a portion of TennoCon 2022’s Double Resource Event due to server issues some of you encountered during that weekend. This means you now have an extra opportunity to earn double the Resources on any activity you participate in throughout the Origin System. It’s the perfect time to stock up and build that new Warframe or Weapon you’ve been eyeing! The Double Resource Rerun will begin at 9 a.m. ET on Friday July 29 and will last 24 hours until July 30 at 9 a.m. ETTennoCon 2022 RecapJul 16, 2022 - Community AnnouncementsThe Duviri Paradox: Winter 2022 Coming to all platforms this Winter, The Duviri Paradox will throw you into a color-shifting landscape, unlike anything you’ve seen before. Play as an outlaw known as the Drifter as you fight for a way to break free from Duviri’s endless daily cycle of death and rebirth. Complete the cinematic Quest, meet characters new and old, claim powerful upgrades and ultimately wrest control of Duviri from the clutches of the tyrant Dominus Thrax. As you explore the color-changing mood driven landscapes of Duviri under Dominus Thrax’s control, you’ll fight Dax Guards, complete requests, solve puzzles and be rewarded with Decrees, upgrades that boost your Drifters capabilities for the duration of that day’s cycle. With the help of Teshin and with enough Decrees, the assistance of fellow Tenno and your loyal flying Kaithe mount, you may be able to challenge the fearsome Orowyrm itself. The Duviri Paradox will take place before the events of The New War, allowing more players the ability to experience all that it has to offer. Look forward to more information about The Duviri Paradox in the coming months! // Players in-game got a first glimpse of The Duviri Paradox during the roughly 20-minute demo by joining us in the Duviri Amphitheater, a limited-time Relay Event that allowed Tenno to visit a slice of Duviri and explore some of the landscape along with a theatrical overview of story-driven moments. Veilbreaker: Coming Soon Kahl is back! In Warframe’s next thrilling Quest update, you’ll take control of the heroic Grineer soldier Kahl-175. Having survived Erra’s devastation of Cetus and lifted his Narmer Veil, Kahl decides to fight for his freedom and the freedom of his Grineer brothers. Archons also return with deadly surprises to catch you unaware. Unite with your fellow Tenno to take them down, and lift the Veil once and for all! Veilbreaker is coming soon to all platforms. Cross Play, Cross Save and Mobile Warframe is continuing its path towards Cross Play, Cross Save, and mobile development as the team has spent the last year exploring Cross Play capabilities and performing internal testing. With these steps forward comes our expansion into Community Testing and we are excited to announce that these tests will be happening this year. In preparation for Cross Play and mobile releases, we will be synchronizing various systems starting with the Void Trader, Baro Ki’teer. Inventories will become aligned for all platforms when Baro makes his scheduled visit starting July 29, 2022. We are still deeply committed to the implementation of Cross Play and Cross Save and we are striving to let everyone across every platform play seamlessly from wherever and whenever they choose. Soulframe To close out the show, the team had one final announcement: Soulframe. Debuting with an over five-minute cinematic trailer, Soulframe is an e...Digital Extremes announces Soulframe and indie publishing during TennoCon 2022Jul 16, 2022 - VG247Digital Extremes has announced during TennoCon 2022 that it's started development on a whole new game. Titled Soulframe, the team led by former Warframe senior staff Jeff Ross and Steve Sinclair, is a fantasy title — drifting away from the sci-fi setting Warframe has established over the past seven years. In their place, Rebecca Ford is taking over as lead creative director on Warframe. In an interview with us shortly before TennoCon, she took us through the change, as well as how she’s been secretly leading the team over the past six months. “It's a lot. It's overwhelming, it's exciting. It's fundamentally something I didn't know I wanted to do. But now that I've been doing it for six months, I feel that I can take good care of Warframe. We've been in this really weird situation right now where no one knows, even though it's been happening for six months. The team at Digital Extremes wanted me to know that I wanted to do it. They didn't want to throw me to the wolf-frame, so to speak, and not give me a chance to say ‘whoa, this is not what I expected. That's not for me.'” Read more Warframe is getting into the time loop business with The Duviri ParadoxJul 16, 2022 - PC GamerThis year's TennoCon, the annual event built around Warframe, was about more than just the future of the game. The announcement of a new game, Soulframe, and Digital Extremes moving into publishing point to realms beyond. But even amid all this big news, Warframe remained the focus. As well as the long awaited unveiling of The Duviri Paradox—first teased back in 2019— there was also the surprise announcement of a new update due before the expansion, Veilbreaker.

Duviri Paradox trailer teases long-awaited expansionJun 9, 2022 - PCGamesNDigital Extremes appeared on the stage at Summer Game Fest to talk about the latest update for Warframe, The Duviri Paradox, which will be demonstrated in full at Tenno Live during the upcoming Tennocon 2022 on July 16. The Duviri Paradox, which was initially revealed at Tennocon 2019, is an open-world expansion for the RPG game that has been long anticipated by the game's community. The reveal trailer is very teasery and doesn't give away too much, with a black-and-white flashback to a shaggy-haired, bearded warrior fighting an enemy on horseback, before they take the horse for themself and ride it across the land. A giant space worm is shown weaving through the sky, and there is a flash across several characters before the shot settles on two swords embedded into the ground. Fans of Warframe have been awaiting more news on this expansion, which has been delayed for a while due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the team's transition to working from home, so they will doubtless be glad to know that more details are on the way soon.

Read the Complete TennoGen FAQ here 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.
