Digital Extremes Announces The New War Update Will Release Later This Year

If you caught TennoCon over the weekend, then you're likely already aware of Digital Extreme's latest Warframe announcement. If you missed it, you might not know that during an interactive preview, they revealed that the game's next content expansion, The New War, will drop later this year. While they didn't provide an exact date, Digital Extremes did add that players can expect it (as well as all future updates) to release across all platforms simultaneously. That means no more waiting for players (and no more having to write the same post three times for different platforms for us). Good news all around.

During the stream, Digital Extremes showed off a 30 minute gameplay demo of the upcoming content, highlighting characters like Corpus Engineer Veso, Grineer Soldier Kahl-175, and Dax Warrior Teshin. All three of these will be playable in a quest for the first time. While the team showed off a sizeable chunk of content, they also did their best to avoid any spoilers. But, you know how these things are, so if you'd rather go completely spoiler free, it might be best to avoid watching it. You can watch the sizzle trailer instead. We included both here, so just go with what works for you.

As mentioned above, the next big expansion and all later content will now drop across all platforms at once. As it turns out, this is kind of necessary because one of the things players can expect from the next update is Cross-save and Cross-play functions -- bringing the entire Warframe player base together.

Yeah.....Warframe is the only game that I spitefully want to fail for being as empty as it is

Yawn* Wake me up when they do something impressive. It's great that this game keeps trying to keep coming out with "free" content. But when the game is boring and has no incentives really kills the game.

Will the new stories and slow game make this game anymore interesting? No, unless you're a fan. After that though you will be back to same old boring grind to nothingness.

Give me something that is as challenging like Dark Souls. Give some weight to weapons and physics to tennos. Give more incentives and replay value to the game something that shows progress. And give the game a hook like rank pvp or something.

Until till then, I'm not at all impressed or interested. And the game is still the same old dead end game.
