Even a space ninja needs something to do in its leisure time.

That’s the reasoning behind Lunaro, the new game mode coming to Digital Extremes’ Warframe later this month, as announced at E3. The rules are simple: Get the Lunaro (ball) past your opponents and into their goal.

However, as the teaser video shows, Tenno will have a few flashy moves at their disposal to accomplish this, focusing “not on violence, but on teamwork and coordination.” The press release says you can disassociate your opponent from the ball with a “crushing hit,” so maybe there’s a little bit of violence.

Coming this week to PC and later to PS4 and Xbox One Warframe players, Lunaro is just one of three major updates planned for Warframe in the next couple of months, including the big one, a new cinematic quest experience titled The War Within. Other upcoming changes include a rework of Warframe’s Star Chart, new companions, and changes and additions to the Archwing space combat system.
