“The New War” will be a sort of immediate follow-up on the events of “The Sacrifice” the previous mainline cinematic quest. It will put you in the shoes of multiple characters from the game’s various factions to experience their side of the war. Players will take on new variants of the “sentient” enemy type. They can access a new warframe as well as a variety of new weapons and cosmetics. There will also be an all-new playable space.
Warframe is a free-to-play game and as such will be giving “The New War” for free to all players. Next-generation console owners should also be excited to jump in as it is currently enhanced for next-generation consoles. Are you excited about this update?
