With 26 million registered players Warframe has seen a slow but very successful rise to the ranks that it is at today. After 2016’s “War Within” update that was Digital Extreme’s biggest update so far it may have been hard for them top that and continue to be successful. 2017 However has got a very promising start for Warframe newbies and fans alike. Digital Extreme have announced that their latest update entitled “The Glast Gambit” not very easy to say after a few beers but it shows that Digitial Extremes are serious about holding onto Warframe’s fan base.
Key highlights of The Glast Gambit update feature:
• NEW WARFRAME: Plague your enemies with the Infested powers of Lotus’ newest warrior, Nidus. Spread the Infestation by spawning maggots that seek nearby enemies, manifest plagued tendrils to immobilize foes, and redistribute the damage you take to infected victims.
• NEW COSMETICS: New community-made Customizations from the TennoGen program have arrived on PlayStation®4 and Xbox One! Console players can now get their hands on the Volt Amp Skin, Volt Arrester Helmet, Mag Orbit Skin, Chroma Tarrasque Helmet and the Excalibur Sentient Slayer Skin from the Market to stylize their Warframe.
• NEW QUEST: Nef Anyo has stolen the children of the Mycona Colony, and the Tenno must challenge Nef in The Index and beat him at his own game.
• NEW WEAPONS: Handle new Weapons and Customizations with care as they have been corrupted by the Infestation. HEMA – Wield this symbiotic burst-rifle designed to leech health to forge its ammo, and then restore health with each headshot. HIRUDO – Rip into the enemy with fists of razor sharp cartilage. Steals health with each critical hit. RIVEN MODS: Expand your strength by wielding a new Riven Mod for Secondary Weapons — but know that you must prove yourself before their powers are revealed. THORAC SYANDANA: Drape yourself with the new sinuous spine of Infested anatomy.
Do you know whats the best thing about this is? It’s still free, thats right no money needed so there’s nothing really really stopping you is there?
The Glast Gambit is available now on the Xbox Store.
Sword Coast Legends, a Dungeons & Dragons-based RPG, will make its Xbox One debut later this year. Check out the E3 2015 trailer below:
The party-based RPG is set in the Forgotten Realms universe from Wizards of the Coast and boasts the most “true-to-form” interpretation of tabletop gaming featuring a massive campaign, multiplayer co-op and an orchestral soundtrack composed by Inon Zur.
We’ve had a clear goal since day one to evoke the classic D&D experience between four players and a Dungeon Master, and to bring back memories of the great D&D games of the past,
said Dan Tudge, President of n-Space and Director for Sword Coast Legends.
After we announced and demonstrated Sword Coast Legends to overwhelmingly positive response at GDC, the press, partners, and fans all requested more. They wanted Mac, so we’re doing it. They wanted Linux, so we’re doing it. They clamored for console… so we circled back and figured out how to do it without compromising our vision for PC gamers. This addition to our existing PC, Mac and Linux versions ensures gamers will be able to have that classic D&D experience whenever, wherever and however they want.
