Some new Warframe content is coming to all platforms this February and sometime in or after March, including two new Frames, a Valentine’s Day event, and permanent cosmetics, developer Digital Extremes revealed.
Starting things off in February is Nightwave: Intermission 3. It goes live on February 1 and brings about new acts, reintroduces some past rewards, duplicates protection, and more. Digital Extremes didn’t go into much detail about Intermission 3 during the livestream.
The series of Warframe content continues with the Star Days event, which goes live from February 11-24. The event is centered around debt collector Ticker, whose store will get a variety of themed items such as glyphs, floofs, and other cosmetics. On top of this event, Digital Extremes will enable wings as a permanent cosmetic for all Frames. They are customizable, from wing style to feather color, and ephemeral, meaning they will become transparent to ensure they don’t obstruct viewing angles when players aim down sights.
A new Lunar Renewal event also kicks off in mid-February, with various Year of the Ox content. An exact start date has not been announced, but players can expect various cosmetics to unlock and quests to embark on. Meanwhile, players can unlock Octavia Prime starting on February 23 who comes with her signature weapons and a playable shawzin with harp sounds.
Coming sometime in or after March is Update 30, which Digital Extremes is calling Call of the Tempestarii. The update introduces Savagoth (previously known as Wraithe), a new necromancer Frame that can conjure apparitions and ephemeral area-of-effect attacks, as well as a quest based around Savagoth and some possible changes to Zephyr. There’s also a new ready-to-go melee weapon called the ghoul saw that kind of looks like a giant Lancer from Gears of War (minus the gun component), but Digital Extreme has not nailed down a date for when it will drop. The team’s also investigating how players can somehow ride the weapon.
In other Warframe news, Digital Extremes was picked up by Tencent when the Chinese mega-conglomerate acquired the developer’s parent company, Leyou, in December 2020. The Warframe developer said it will remain “creatively independent” despite the acquisition, saying players should “expect no changes to Warframe or how our studio operates” going forward.
