Rife with non-stop action, smooth combat, and featuring one of the most welcoming communities in online gaming, Warframe is inviting new and returning players to discover its free Cinematic Quest line, combining a personal story of self-discovery with an action-packed space opera that takes players across 16 planets with 3 Open Worlds as they restore balance to the fractured Origin System. A new cinematic CG trailer created by Blur Studios (Netflix’s Love Death + Robots) reveals the face behind a Warframe while delivering more of Warframe’s signature gut-punching action and shining light on defining moments between the players and the Lotus.
The next and biggest chapter in Warframe’s free Cinematic Questline, The New War will see players controlling new playable characters for the very first time as they work through dramatic twists and turns across 3 Acts. As they experience various Missions in new environments, including Open Worlds besieged by Sentients, players will overcome dangerous new threats and challenges while unearthing answers to long-standing questions about Warframe’s sprawling sci-fi universe. Take control of iconic enemies including Kahl-175 the Grineer, Veso the Corpus Tech, and the Dax: Teshin, as they fight across the Origin System to push back the invading Sentient force.
