Get ready, ninjas, because the latest update for Warframe is now ready to roll. Gear up for some “Stolen Dreams,” complete with new missions, weapons and more.
Dital Extremes has launched its latest content boost for free-to-play third-person shooter, Warframe, dubbed “Stolen Dreams” and, according to Associate Producer Pat Kudirka in a recent PlayStation Blog post, it offers a little bit of everything that makes the game so much fun to play.
“We try to fill every update with as many unique weapons and events as we can,” Kudrika said. “When it comes to space ninja-ing, there are few things more satisfying than leaping into action and unleashing a hailstorm of bullets from a shiny new gun, or cutting through enemies with a newly polished blade.”
For those unfamiliar with the game, Warframe is basically a Japanese space opera, telling ancient stories of war and domination but, you know, taking place on other planets and starring assassin robots that utilize all manner of firearm and melee weaponry. It’s currently available on the PC and PlayStation 4 free of charge and, according to the latest buzz, should be heading to the Xbox One in the not-too-distant future.
For those of you who don’t mind spoilers, here’s a look at the first mission from the Stolen Dreams update.
So now that you’ve seen some of the new content in action, let’s break down what you’ll actually get with the Stolen Dreams update. For starters, the new campaign missions will have you chasing after a thief known as Maroo, who has stashed his loot throughout the solar system. Your job is to break into various facilities and reclaim the goods.
Spy missions in the game have received a major overhaul, letting you tackle challenges using your wits rather than slashing through endless crowds of enemies. When it’s time to fall back on firepower, however, you can rely on a new set of pistols called the Akjagara or the new polearm, Tonbo.
This fresh combat is boosted by a new tactical alert system and “Crossfire” missions, making it easier than ever to keep track of objectives while battling it out in the midst of a Corpus/Grineer war. That’ll all be accompanied by the traditional amount of bug fixes, minor tweaks and some new customization options to help make your ninja one of a kind.
As far as free-to-play games go, Warframe is knocking it out of the park, offering loads of regular content updates and in-game purchases that don’t cripple those unable to spend as much as their fellow players. Joined by other successful gratis games like Loadout, War Thunder, Blacklight and the like, it looks like the “free-to-play” nightmare scenario many feared would ruin this latest console generation is actually turning out quite nicely.
