After three years of asking, the answer to the question, “What is a Warframe?” has arrived. The free-to-play shooter’s most recent update — titled The Second Dream — has arrived, bringing with it the game’s first ever cinematic quest, a new Warframe, Sortie Mission, the Conclave expansion, a new tileset, and new weapons and other gear.
The new cinematic quest for which the update is named is available to all players who have completed the Natah Quest. Players will find themselves pitted against the Stalker, hired by the Sentient Hunow to destroy them using a secret related to the origin of the Tenno.
Once you’ve completed The Second Dream quest you can enter the new Tileset; the Orokin Moon.
A new Warframe also arrives in the new update. Ivara — the archer Warframe seen in the video below — is rather stealthy, using abilities that allow her to render her enemies harmless from a distance or by getting up in their face without them ever realizing.
As mentioned above, there are a variety of new additions — as well as several changes — that have arrived with the latest Warframe update. A rather lengthy list of all of these additions and changes is available on the Warframe blog.
