UPDATE 10/5/18: Following its launch on PC last month, Warframe's Beasts of the Sanctuary content update is now available to download on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
Beasts of the Sanctuary introduces the new Sanctuary Onslaught mode and the Warframe Khora, both of which are outlined in more detail below.
Alongside the new update, console players can participate in the returning Operation: Plague Star limited-time event, which runs from today, May 10th, to Tuesday May 22nd.
Warframe developer Digital Extremes has announced that this year's TennoCon - the company's annual Warframe-themed convention - will take place on July 7th, at the London Convention Center in London, Ontario.
Warframe's latest free update, Shrine of Eidolon, launches on PC this week, developer Digital Extremes has announced.
Shrine of Eidolon further expands on Warframe's recently added open-world Plains of Eidolon map, adding two new boss encounters and a high-flying new method of transportation.
Warframe's new boss-stylee creatures are known as Eidolons - mysterious titans that wander the Plains "and loom over the people of Cetus". These, according to the game's lore, are fragments of the mighty Sentient, "a deformed creature, sent from some dark fold of distant space, crushing towers and citadels across Earth...".
Warframe's latest update, which introduces Ghoul hunting, dynamic weather and customisable on-ship living quarters, has made its way to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
PC players received the update late last year, but console players can now enjoy the likes of Ghoul Purge Bounties, too. These bring a new level of challenge (and suitable rewards) to the Plains of Eidolon - Warframe's reasonably new open-world map - and task brave Tenno with ridding the landscape of tough Grineer Ghouls.
These formidable new adversaries roam in packs and specialise in close combat. They can be encountered via a Ghoul Alert, in graveyards and through Incursions or Bounties.
UPDATE 8/11/17: Developer Digital Extremes has announced that Warframe's major new Plains of Eidolon update will finally come to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on November 14th. The free expansion launched on PC last month, October 12th, and marks Warframe's first foray into open-world action. More details on Plains of Eidolon can be found below.
ORIGINAL STORY 5/10/17: Warframe, the free-to-play shooter that's actually very good will receive another major new update on PC next week, this time in the form of the long-awaited Plains of Eidolon.
Plains of Eidolon has been in the works for a good old while now, and is a pretty big deal for the Warframe universe. It introduces the game's first fully-explorable, open-world-style landscape, marking a major departure from its usual claustrophobic, corridor-based action.
Here's the thing: it is cool to slide along on your bum while firing a rifle. It is also cool to transition from bum-slide into accelerating leap, to draw a bow and arrow in mid air and to plunk a pointy laser-shaft right in the cranium of an unsuspecting spaceman. It's also cool to hit a spaceman with a space-staff, to set your space-dog or space-robot on him, to tear him apart with superpowers. All of these things are cool, and they constitute 90 per cent of the things you do in Warframe. Is it fair, therefore, to conclude that Warframe is cool?
Warframe welcomes the Chains of Harrow update on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One today.
This brings a new horror film-style quest, a new chain-wielding character/Warframe, a new-look/remastered Earth environment, new weapons, new enemies and the ability to dual-wield thrown melee weapons with secondary weapons.
The Chains of Harrow quest sends you to investigate a spaceship adrift near Earth, and in true horror film fashion, it houses a lot more than your bargained for. The quest will appear when you've finished The War Within and unlocked Mot in the Void.
UPDATE 2ND DECEMBER: The War Within expansion will be released for PS4 and Xbox One this month, developer Digital Extremes announced last night. No specific date, sadly.
ORIGINAL STORY 13TH NOVEMBER: Warframe has just welcomed a huge update on PC called The War Within, adding a whole new chapter of content - and all the new enemies, weapons and armour that come with it - as well as an array of game improvements. It's a whopper.
"This chapter tells a story of your patience, our gratitude, and of course some wonderful evolution for the game," wrote developer Digital Extremes in an open letter. "We're introducing an awe inspiring and dangerous environment: the Kuva Fortress. We're pushing our engine technology to bring you graphic improvements. We're bringing you a story about your past.
Free-to-play co-op sci-fi shooter Warframe is now available to download on Xbox One.
Warframe developer Digital Extremes appears to be in the throws of acquisition.
With the rising price of next-gen games a hot topic of conversation, the case for free-to-play moving onto consoles should be easier to make. Games like Warframe, however, probably won't help.
It's a four-player co-op third-person shooter, pitting human players in Guyver-esque supersuits known as Warframes against a variety of evil alien cyborg types. If that scenario causes your eyes to glaze over with weary familiarity then rest assured, the game that follows is even more generic and characterless than you think.
Following a brief tutorial which teaches you such insultingly obvious basics such as how to move and shoot, you're dumped into a densely packed front-end that explains little else. The game is structured around the planets of the Solar System and some fictional additions, with each providing a progressive mission tree to work through.
The Darkness 2 developer Digital Extremes has announced its free-to-play third-person co-op shooter Warframe will be a PlayStation 4 launch title.
The game launched on PC earlier this year. Digital Extremes, which also made Dark Sector, said the PS4 version will take advantage of the Sony console's social connectivity and community-building features, as well as some of the more snazzy features of the DualShock 4, including the touch-pad.
There's also an Android and iOS app called Warframe Nexus, which lets you perform in-game tasks and view real-time game information.
