Free-to-play science fiction shooter Warframe's long-awaited cinematic story development The New War will launch for PlayStation, Xbox, Switch, and PC on 15th December. Portrayed by engineer Digital Extremes as Warframe's "biggest narrative expansion...so far", The New War - which was at first teased right back in 2018 - recounts the tale of a gigantic Sentient intrusion throughout three acts, taking players across 16 planets and three open worlds, including already unseen environments. It's an experience that unfolds according to the viewpoint of numerous playable characters - including a Grineer Lancer called Kahl-175, Corpus engineer Veso, and Conclave Master Teshin - and vows to join a "personal story of self-discovery with an action-packed space opera". Digital Extremes has previously called The New War, the "most ambitious thing we've done", and players can at long last experience that desire for themselves on 15th December. To do as such, nonetheless, they'll need to have finished a decent lump of Warframe's current story missions, explicitly Natah, The Second Dream, The War Within, Chains of Harrow, Apostasy Prologue, The Sacrifice, Chimera Prologue, Erra, The Maker, Rising Tide, and Heart of Deimos. Moreover, players should have fabricated an Archwing, assembled or bought a Railjack and Necramech, and opened an Operator. Thusly, new (or to be sure passed) players expecting to partake in The New War on dispatch day will need to begin managing that agenda now - and Digital Extremes offers a couple of assistive pointers on its site. Close by The New War, Warframe's fifteenth December update will present Caliban - another Sentient-Warframe hybrid that brings the game's total Warframe count up to 48 - in addition to new customisations, weapons, and accessories.
