Warframe recently launched alongside the PlayStation 4 as one of its free-to-play games. As a new audience discovers Warframe on a next-gen console, the PC version receives a new update.
Update 11 for Warframe introduces a bevy of new elements including two new Warframes and two new bosses. The two new Warframes introduced are the Valkyr and the Ember Prime. PC players can tackle new bosses, Sargas Ruk and Alad V. With the inclusion of Alad V, a new tileset opens up for players to explore. The new tileset opens up with The Hunt for Alad V Event and gives access to The Corpus Gas City.
Also added in Update 11 is the new damage system, new weapons, new prime weapons, a new resource drone, a new codex system, new Warframe skins, a new trading system and updates to the Clan Dojo. The enhanced damage system diversifies the types of physical damage a player can inflict by splitting it up into puncturing, impact and slashing damage. It also causes differentiation between weapons and accounts for enemy resistance forcing players to learn and adapt to various enemy types. Update 11 gives players access to the double-barreled Tigris Shotgun, the half whip, half taser Corpus Lecta and the Cestra minigun. Primes also get access to the Glaive Prime and Sicarus Prime.
The Titan Extractor is a resource drone that collects resources for players. With the new codex system, scans of enemies and objects reveal important information. Eight new Immortal Warframe skins are available. The trading post allows players to trade items with the first trading items being Mods and Keys. The Clan Dojo now includes a Trophy Room, Large Garden, Research Labs and Power Room.
Warframe PC users can enjoy all this new content with the newly released Update 11.
Warframe was a delightful surprise among the PlayStation 4 launch line-up. The game is a lot of fun and should tide over PS4 users until more games release next year. Hopefully the console release will enjoy the same new content and support that the PC version has received as the developer figures out how best to update the game on the console side. This update adds a wealth of new content to the PC version and it is exciting to see where this cool free-to-play title will go in the future.
