It’s update time Tenno, and you know what that means — more features and content coming to your favourite space ninja game! We know you’ve been patiently waiting and today the wait is over! Update 13.7 will be deploying from DE headquarters in sunny Canada today and here’s a rundown of what the team has been doing.
A lot has changed in Warframe in just a few short months, and we know it can be hard to keep track of all the changes. So just in case you haven’t been around since Update 13, here’s a quick recap as to some of the major changes you may have missed plus what’s coming today in 13.7!
Tenno have been pitting their resources against fellow Tenno in a bid to control new uncharted areas of space filled with bonus experience and boosted resources. By working together as a Clan or in an Alliance players can construct a Solar Rail to gain access to these Dark Sectors. The Clan who controls the Sector can reap certain benefits, so pick a side and prepare to defend your Solar Rail from any Tenno who would sabotage your control.
Honorable combat at blade’s point has never been so rewarding, and it’s all thanks to our dramatic Melee 2.0 update. Each weapon now has its own upgradeable stance that unlocks a variety of combos to be used when setting aside your firearm in favour of close-combat. Every melee weapon in the game from swords to whips, axes to twin daggers each has their own unique fighting stance, and in most cases more than one!
One of the biggest changes since Update 13 was the introduction of our water-based Warframe, Hydroid! Sporting a stylish pirate hat Hydroid is a unique blend of offensive crowd control — able to call down a ranged liquid bombardment, summon a swarm of tentacles to wreak havoc upon the enemy, and turn into a crashing wave of water that can knock down foes.
He also can turn into a puddle and drown enemies inside of himself, which is a strange but satisfying way to deal with your enemies.
And that’s just what you may have missed! If you’ve been enjoying the ride so far then Update 13.7 should not only give you a few new fun tools to work with, but a new challenge to test your skills against.
Loki Prime Access and Prime Accessories
Fans of being an invisible killing machine should rejoice as our new Prime Access now features Loki Prime, Wyrm Prime and Bo Prime all available in a single bundle; and in case the gold trim wasn’t stylish enough a Prime Accessories pack features the Daman Prime Sugatra and Summus Prime Sentinel Accessories alongside a 90-day Credit and Affinity Booster.
Both packs are also bundled with Platinum, and are a great deal if you’re looking to store up for any future purchases down the line.
In addition to our new content we’ve added two new Trophies relating to Dark Sectors, one for completing 5 missions for a clan in a contested Dark Sector and another for earning 100,000 credits in Battle Pay. If you have yet to experience fighting over the Solar Rails and are looking for that 100% completion now’s a great time to pick a side and join the fight!
Captain Vor and Tier 4 Void Keys
A new Prime also means a new Orokin Void Tier and within it are new challenges for players to face. T4 Keys can be earned in Medium (lv 10-20) and Hard (lv 20+) Interception missions on Round 3 or later; which means as long as you’re playing Interception there’s an excellent chance you’ll be able to unlock our most difficult Void keys yet!
Each Void mission also has the chance to spawn a new yet familiar enemy. Corrupted by Void energies Captain Vor lurks, twisted but infused with incredible power. Already a formidable enemy Vor can spawn in any T4 mission at random, adding an element of surprise each time you play.
New Weapons and Armor Packs
Our final addition to 13.7 includes new armour customization and weapons for Tenno to mix up their arsenal with. Both The Edo Armor Pack and Yamako Syandana will bring some nice cosmetic options to PS4, while the Serro, Nami Solo and Pyrana each contribute their own unique kind of death-dealing to the enemies of the Lotus.
If you’re looking to mix up the colour on your Warframe be sure to check out the Defaults Colour palette as well. It’s a collection of default colours used across every frame we’ve made so far, which makes it a pretty interesting pack to choose from.
Between a brand new Prime, new challenges in the Void and new weapons to master there’s never been a better time to be a space ninja. Oh, and be sure to watch out for some Special Alerts from the Lotus in the near future. Word has it Alad V is up to something suspicious, so keep your eyes peeled in game (or on your Warframe Nexus app) for any emergency transmissions.
Good luck PS4 Tenno, and happy Void hunting!
