Warframe has evolved quite a bit since we reviewed it back near the PlayStation 4's launch. Over a year in, and the free-to-play title has expanded significantly, building upon its already solid, if unspectacular, foundation.
And right now, you can download the title's latest update, which adds yet more new content to the co-op shoot-and-slice-'em-up. The biggest addition to the sci-fi adventure is the introduction of hub-like relays, where you can meet up with other players, sort out your gear, and chat between missions. Sounds good, eh? In time, these areas will even support new merchants and even special quest givers. The downside is that these relays won't be open to everyone at first, but once stress tests are completed, you should be able to pay them a visit.
The update also brings a new widespread and dangerous operation in which players will have to take on the Vey Hek's space fleet. This new battle will require users to make use of Archwings -- devices added in the game's last big update that allow Tenno to zip through space -- to infiltrate the fleet.
A new trader named Baro Ki'Teer will be jumping into the fray, too, and like Destiny's Xur, he'll only appear now and again. Once every two weeks, you'll be able to find him in relays, and trade with him using special currency that's only obtained through selling off your prime gear. Phew.
There's even a new game mode, in which you'll have to protect a vehicle from enemy forces, and on top of all that, the update also adds in a wealth of new weapons, Archwings, and Archwing armaments. It's certainly an impressive amount of content, but are you still playing Warframe? Perhaps this update will convince you to jump back in? Wall run into the comments section below.
Hah! I downloaded this again today and i was like woooow. So much to update! Still have no idea what im at tbh.
This game is what Destiny "should" have been! It makes it work and the random maps make the replay endless!
I still play this once in a while, solid F2P that evolved a lot since it launched in 2013, if you love action games, you owe it to yourself to try it out and at least beat Vek!
It needs graphics up date, too ps3 for me.
Haven't played since the previous large update as the new ship based UI is wince inducing. May try out this new update later as I still have Warframe installed
@MadchesterManc the ship based ui made me stop playing the game otherwise I would still play it
I was playing Warframe with a friend for a long time, and enjoyed it immensely. After a while though, I had done everything I could and it became a bit of a grind of the same missions to get my equipment a little better, or try out a new warframe. One of which, was ridiculously difficult to get to the specific level being bugged at the time.
With it being updated, I may give it another play, though I was sucked in so much last time, I'm not sure it's the best idea!
@Bad-MuthaAdebisi when was the last time you tried it? It improved a lot in the last year and it looks pretty decent now!
@KillTheG1mp I tried it at launch and then again about six months after so probably nearly 12 months ago. Maybe I'll give it another go.
@Bad-MuthaAdebisi You should definitely check it out then!
I've dipped and dabbled... But can't seem to stay hooked . It's not bad for a free game though. Perhaps I'll dip once again because of this update
