Warframe just reached a milestone nine years in the making: the release of its 50th playable Warframe, Styanax.
Styanax is a spear-wielding gladiator that mixes classic mythology with galactic sci-fi action. The newest Warframe will be completely free to all players for a limited time at release.
Today’s live Devstream also revealed more about the “Veilbreaker” update, which will accompany Styanax’s launch and directly follow up the events of last year’s Warframe milestone “The New War.”
Revealed in a first-of-its-kind Warframe animated short on Devstream 163, Styanax can be instantly added to all player Arsenals for a limited time completely free when Veilbreaker launches for all platforms in September.
Inspired by the ancient Greek warrior Astyanax, Styanax is a mighty and herculean Warframe with formidable abilities and immense power for Warframe players to master on the Origin System. The new animated short delivers nonstop thrills as the first-ever extension of the Warframe entertainment universe and follows Styanax as he helps restore order to the Origin System after a group of Corpus settlers follow through with a nefarious agenda led by a harrowing cult leader, The Philanthropist: https://youtu.be/4gi_9Ypouuc
Master the Might of the 50th Warframe, Styanax, and His Herculean Abilities
- Axios Javelin – Call upon the Axios Javelin. Any enemy Styanax strikes with his javelin is pushed back. When the javelin propels an enemy into a wall, the area suffers a burst of damage.
- Tharros Strike – Summon Tharros, the shield of Styanax. Swing Tharros to repel enemies and reduce their shields and armor. Styanax regenerates health for every enemy struck.
- Rally Point – Draw enemy attention to Styanax. His resolve uplifts nearby allies, regenerating their energy and shields. Shield regeneration increases with the number of enemies near Styanax.
- Final Stand – Exude might and valor. Rise into the air and throw a barrage of Axios Javelins. The javelins deal damage to nearby enemies wherever they land. Direct hits to enemies deal even greater damage.
Alongside the release of Styanax, Warframe’s Veilbreaker update is set to deliver unprecedented action as fan-favorite Grineer Kahl-175 returns as a playable character in a new Quest following the events of the critically-acclaimed update The New War. After a curious signal is picked up by Daughter of the Entrati family, the Tenno are contacted to investigate a Murex ship near Deimos and find its source. As Kahl, players will utilize new powerful abilities and tech gained along the way to fight their way through a Sentient onslaught and returning Archon boss enemies aboard the Murex while circumventing their intriguing technology to locate and safely release his brothers from imprisonment.
In addition to a new single-player Quest, Warframe’s Veilbreaker update is set to add a slew of new playable weekly missions with Kahl-175 at the center of the action, offering expansive cooperative action combat and allowing players to increase Kahl’s overall rank as missions are completed and earn new customizations along the way. With Warframe’s new Veilbreaker update, players now have even more opportunities to be the savior of the Origin System.
