Digital Extremes has released a massive update for its free-to-play title, Warframe, in order to celebrate over 4 million Tenno strong with new Warframes, new environments, new weapons, new game modes and more – including the introduction of The Conclaves. In addition, Digital Extremes revealed that Warframe marks six months of open beta.
Here are the key features of Warframe Shadows of the Dead update:
TWO NEW WARFRAMES
Nekros – the first Necromancer joins the Tenno. Nekros uses his dark powers to manipulate his enemies, both living and dead.
Mag Prime – Mag Prime joins the ranks of Excalibur Prime and Frost Prime as the newest elite Tenno.
NEW MISSION TYPE
Survival Weekend, one of our recent events, had players testing a new game mode in which Tenno were deployed onto ships in the sector to raid oxygen caches and distract enemies. Great community feedback following the weekend has led us to add Survival as a new mode within Warframe!
Duels are no longer restricted to clans! An ancient Tenno tradition has reemerged, THE CONCLAVES have started appearing throughout the Solar Map. Here the Tenno meet in secret to challenge each another in honorable combat. 1v1 and 2v2 Conclaves have been added through the Solar Map.
