Warframe, the free-to-play title which is available on Nintendo Switch, gets a beefy expansion at the end of the month and players get to enjoy it at the same time regardless of their platform of choice. The news cropped up via Tenno Con 2020 which is Warframe’s annual fan convention. The update brings a ton of extra content like the ability to transfer abilities between Warframes, pilotable mechs, a load of new locations to visit and a lot more. There’s a 30-minute video showing some gameplay from the expansion and you can view it below. Or, if you don’t have the time, check out some of the PR goodness below which does a good job of encapsulating just exactly what you can expect from the expansion:
Explore The Open World Expansion, Heart of Deimos
Heart of Deimos follows Digital Extremes’ two previous open worlds, Plains of Eidolon and Fortuna, with a new design twist, connecting an open world on its surface to a procedurally generated tileset underground.
On the moon surface, players will find themselves thrust into the sticky, pulsing, and terrifying hivemind landscape of the Infested faction, where nearly everything feels alive and connected. Giant towering wyrms, silhouetted against the darkened red sky, battle for control over night and day, while on the ground bulbous pods burst open with Entrati NPCs consumed and transformed by the Infested hive mind or a cadre of belligerent Infested creatures, ready to attack.
Underground, a series of procedurally generated networked tunnels and vertical spaces lead players to further explore the secret origins of the Infested and the twisted Entrati experiments. One remnant from the Entrati’s past works are giant, powerful ‘combat mechs’. These giant war machines might have served multiple purposes in the past but will play a key to players’ survival against a relentless enemy on their home planet. Players will fight against and in them!
