Warframe‘s developer Digital Extremes announced a new 30+ hour story-based Cinematic Quest within the critically acclaimed action game. The quest will prepare players for the game’s next and largest expansion ever, The New War, in December.
To prepare players for the action and threats of The New War, the game is introducing its first-ever unvaulting program, Prime Resurgence, starting November 16. Prime Resurgence gives players an opportunity to instantly unlock or earn a selection of the rarest and most powerful Prime Warframes. Players will have that opportunity on a rotating basis, through the expansion’s release in December. An extension of Warframe‘s Prime Vault program, Prime Resurgence, will reward players with unprecedented access to 18 Prime Warframes and gear previously retired from Warframe’s reward tables and will bring a wealth of long-awaited content to players on all platforms.
“There has never been a better time to play Warframe,” said Digital Extremes COO Sheldon Carter. “Prime Resurgence will bring powerful Prime Warframes to players that participate, and will create an exciting experience for newcomers and Warframe collectors while preparing everyone for the launch of The New War.”
A new trailer (below) highlights Warframe’s story so far and features a first look at the game’s upcoming cinematic CG short teasing an old friend, now turned enemy.
The full The New War cinematic trailer will premiere during Devstream #158 on November 30 at 10 AM ET/ 3 PM GMT. The livestream, on the official Warframe Twitch channel, will also feature more unveils, giveaways, and exclusive Twitch drops.
Unlock Powerful Warframes, Starting November 16
Beginning November 16, each week Warframe players will have an opportunity to instantly unlock or earn two Prime Warframes, along with their Prime Weapons and Accessories from a new event shop located in Maroo’s Bazaar. Former Dax, Varzia, the shop’s new vendor, will help players enact the Prime Resurgence, recovering Prime Warframes who lay dormant in Orokin technology using curious new resources: Aya and Regal Aya.
The New War is Warframe’s biggest Cinematic Quest expansion in its eight-year development history and will offer players more ways to engage with its sprawling sci-fi universe. The expansion adds new playable characters, environments, threats, and challenges, plus the 48th unique Warframe. All this, while answering longstanding questions about its bold and intimate story.
Arriving in December, The New War will also introduce new Customizations, Weapons, and Accessories, giving players limitless power to look and play the way they want. Furthering its commitment to players, Digital Extremes will bring Cross-Save and Cross-Play features and Warframe for Mobile to players in 2022. New, existing, and returning players can jump in now and start preparing to unite opposing forces as the Tenno and heroic villains save the Origin System from the invading Sentient threat.
