Digital Extremes' celebration of everything Warframe, TennoCon, was this weekend, and we've got a rundown of everything that was revealed. So have a seat and listen, Tenno kiddos -- Kinnos? -- because there's a lot to cover.

  • How about a nice video to get you started? Six years after its launch, Warframe has a dramatic new cinematic intro, directed by Dan Trachtenberg (10 Cloverfield Lane, Black Mirror: Playtest, The Boys, Uncharted), who's a fan of the game itself, having "logged in hundreds of hours of play time." It offers a look at the Old War and the battles the original Warframes fought against their Orokin masters long ago and will be added to the game in late 2019 or early 2020.
  • That's the old (sort of), so what about the new? Right now, you can log into Warframe to try out Series 2 of Nightwave. Like the first installment, it consists of daily and weekly challenges that let Tenno experience a new story and unlock limited-time, exclusive rewards. In this chapter, you'll meet up with a mute boy who has the power to heal people; we're sure the bad guys won't come after him.
  • There's also the Wukong Prime Warframe, an enhanced version of the "unruly" original Wukong. You can earn it through gameplay or via a purchase from the shop.
  • That's it for the present -- what about the future of Warframe? Just like at last year's TennoCon, it's the Empyrean expansion (previously known as "Railjack"), but now it's just around the corner rather than a year away. The devs gave a long demo of the expansion, which offers more upgrades for and control over player ships, as well as the ability to board and attack enemy vessels with other players using the Squad Link system. In response to this new threat, Kingpins will emerge, representing a serious threat to even battle-hardened groups of Tenno.
  • Then, to whet your appetite for the next big thing, the team showed off a trailer for the Duviri Paradox. In this, the third open-world expansion for the game, Operators have matured into adults, but there's more to it than that, in what Digital Extremes calls a "reality-bending journey of the surreal."
  • Finally, the next next big thing is The New War, the fourth entry in the game's narrative series.
  • For the closing act, Digital Extremes will send you into space. Like, for real. The "Become a Real #SpaceNinja" sweepstakes will reward one lucky winner with $250,000 USD toward a real trip into space. If you have a Warframe account and are at least 18 years of age, you can sign up for the contest on the Warframe site.

    That's all for our wrap-up of the news from TennoCon 2019. We'll have more news on all the new and upcoming content as it's revealed, and we'll see you at TennoCon 2020!
