Warframe's massive open-world Fortuna expansion is poised to get even larger on Xbox One and PS4 tomorrow, January 29th, courtesy of the new Profit-Taker update.
The Profit-Taker update initially launched on PC back in December, and is designed to enrich the original Fortuna experience with new missions, expanded lore, and a major new boss fight in the form of the titular Profit-Taker.
This formidable adversary (also known as the Orb Mother) is the giant robot spider seen patrolling the surface of Venus during developer Digital Extremes' early showings of the Fortuna expansion. Defeating the creature requires the co-operative might of multiple players, and powerful new Archgun variants that can be wielded while on-foot.
Additionally, the Profit-Taker update introduces a new Warframe known as Baruuk, the pacifist monk. Baruuk's blueprints can be purchased (using Vox Solaris standing) from Little Duck, the Solaris United operative located in Fortuna.
Baruuk is able to call on four abilities in battle: Elude can be used to dodge incoming projectiles when not attacking, while Lull is described as a "calming wave" able to send enemies to sleep. Subdue summons orbiting daggers to seek out and destroy enemy guns, and Baruuk can "deliver powerful radial strikes with his fists and feet" by invoking Serene Storm.
Elsewhere, Profit-Taker adds new Amps and Arcanes (also accessed through Little Duck), alongside new weapons and customisation options. It's even possible to acquire three new Echo-Lures which can be utilised above-ground to continue your conservation efforts and save three new species: Sawgaw, Horrasque, and Stover.
All this will be available for free when Warframe's Profit-Taker update arrives on Xbox One and PS4 tomorrow, January 29th. Further details can be found on the Warframe website.
