Last Wednesday I streamed Warframe on our Livestream show Bomblive, only to realize Warframe was on the cusp of yet another game changing update. An update that brought the power to rip souls from enemies and summon an undead army to fight for you. Why couldn't I have just waited?!

Update 10: Shadows of the Dead brings new environments, weapons, mods, and UI improvements to the MMO. The most significant additions in Update 10 have to deal with the new Necromancy Warframe Nekros and two new modes.

Nekros possesses a mix of utility spells and unconventional damage abilities. Like previously mentioned, Nekros can use his ability Soul Punch to literally punch the souls out of his enemies. The impact is so forceful that any enemies directly behind the unlucky grunt are damaged by the flying soul. Nekros can also fear surrounding enemies, disintegrate enemy corpses for a chance at more loot, and resurrect those he's previously killed in battle as his own undead police force for a short period of time. Not a bad party trick.

Survival mode gives players a chance to fight against increasingly difficult waves of enemies. Unlike other Survival modes, players will also need to watch their oxygen levels, yes even Warframes must breathe. During the five minute challenge, players will gradually lose oxygen until they suffocate. In order to prevent their untimely demise, players must replaced their depleted O2 by killing enemies.

The Conclaves mark the addition of the first non clan-based PvP mode, with players challenging one another in 1v1 and 2v2 conflicts across the galaxy. Each arena posses a Conclave rating which prevents high level players from entering in low level arenas. This ensures players are matched against those of similar item levels. Watch the tutorial below for more details:

Update 10 is live on the Warframe servers now. You can read the full patch notes by visiting the official site here.

Getting gears in this game does not take week unlike what some people said. Planets drop specific resource for whatever you are crafting. You pretty much have to be stupid if it takes you a week to craft a weapon.

well since I'm not a butt kisser I'll say the truth.. don't listen to people who say this game is not p2w

1. This game is boring .. same missions repeat with lack or reason for doing the missions
2. Colors like Black,Grey,..etc can only be obtained by purchasing them with real money... ( Other games these colors are free and they should be free here)
3.F2P player progression is limited .. in higher levels if you don't have fully upgraded weapons or Warframe you will not be able to play..
4.Digital Extremes favoring "Founders" they will not get banned no matter what they do or say in chat or in game...
5. Server connections are sluggish causing the game to lag and becomes unplayable.
6. No endgame content (after beating all planets and warframes are fully upgraded) - lack reason to keep playing



I Recommend better games for you: World of Tanks , World of Warplanes , Star Trek Online ... etc

The true F2P games ... :)

Only the game currency using real money - extremely pricey.

I would be hard pressed to call the UI changes 'improvements', yes, it's a little flashier, but maybe a little more confusing. Not to mention they keep trying to use these textures for buttons that just look bad. =\
