'Warframe' (ALL) Sands of Inaros Update Adds New Warframe, Improvements, Game Mode - Trailer

by Rainier on March 4, 2016 @ 10:09 a.m. PST

WarFrame is a free-to-play fast-action co-op focused shooter set in an evolving sci-fi world.

Set in the far reaches of outer space during a new Dark Age, WarFrame introduces the Tenno, a race on the brink of extinction after being enslaved by the Grineer for centuries. Players enter WarFrame on the cusp of the Grineer's victory over the Tenno until they begin to arm themselves with WarFrames - an ancient exo-skeletal technology only they can operate. Hidden within the Orokin Derelicts of a lost civilization, new WarFrames lie dormant and undiscovered. These artifacts are the Tenno's only hope for survival.

WarFrame is a free-to-play fast-action PvE shooter set in an evolving sci-fi world. Some would call it MMO-Lite as squads of four players band together to advance their characters and battle the oppression of the genocidal Grineer. Throughout their combat missions, players will continually increase the power and abilities of their WarFrame and weapons. Players will raid new areas of space searching for exotic and powerful weapons and WarFrame augmentations to customize their arsenal. With WarFrame's Automatic Mission Generator, the game will offer endless replay as levels are procedurally configured for a unique raid -- every time.

Sands of Inaros reaches PC players today with a brand-new mummy-themed Warframe, a new quest, updates to Reactor Sabotage Missions, and more. The update continues Digital Extremes' dedicated effort to redefine the Free-to-Play experience in a AAA way through constant interaction with their players, better known as Tenno, for feedback that results in regular new content additions and sometimes major gameplay overhauls that keep the game fresh and exciting to new and seasoned players.

Launching today on PC (and coming soon to consoles), the update introduces Inaros, a mummy-themed Warframe with classic ancient Egyptian flair. Tenno may prove themselves worthy of Inaros' strength and unlock this unique Warframe Blueprint by completing the all-new Sands of Inaros Quest.

NEW INAROS WARFRAME: Consume the life of your enemies and embrace a richness of health with Lotus' newest warrior, Inaros.  Use your abilities to siphon the health from those who would defy you, or force their submission by summoning the might of Phobos' sandstorms. Inaros' Abilities are as follows:

  • DESICCATION -- Blast enemies with a wave of cursed sand that blinds them and steals their health.
  • DEVOUR -- Hold power to trap target in quicksand and draw them in for devouring; this steals health and ultimately creates a friendly Sand Shadow.
  • SANDSTORM -- Become a whirling spiral of sand that sends enemies flying and devours those trapped in quicksand.
  • SCARAB SWARM -- Charge to transform health into hardened scarab armor. Discharge to blast enemies with a scarab swarm; survivors have their health drained and bestowed on allies.

REACTOR SABOTAGE 2.0: Ship Sabotage missions have received a total overhaul, complete with diverse mission objectives and new Sabotage-unique tiles. Reactor Sabotage 2.0 includes:

  • Interactive Mission objectives that change depending on squad playstyles. These objectives create unique environmental hazards and varying extraction goals depending on squad choice. Squads may choose to push through the attack, defend an important piece of the reactor, or take a more stealthy approach to complete the objective.
  • Six new Grineer tiles.
  • Six new Corpus tiles.

OROKIN MOON -- NEW GAME MODES: The Orokin Moon tileset has been expanded to include new game modes. These additions include:

  • Defense, Spy and Capture Missions.
  • 20 new environmental tiles.
  • Overall improvements to older tileset rooms, including graphical and lighting adjustments.


  • LESION -- An instrument of unrelenting harm.
  • MUTALIST CERNOS -- Overcome with Infestation, this bow's arrows now spread poisonous contagion to any surface they hit.
  • DUAL TOXOCYST -- Brain-strikes excite this bioweapon, causing it to rapidly release toxic munitions.


  • XIPHOS -- Featuring Sentry Gun air-support, this stylish new Landing Craft is an asset in any battle.
  • ABRASYS SYANDANA -- This textured cape evokes stone scarred but not destroyed by the sea's tireless onslaught.
  • CELESTIA SYANDANA -- This Conclave Exclusive cape allows Tenno to wear their bragging rights, by displaying Daily Conclave Challenge progress with a beam of light for each completed challenge.

CHAT CHANGES: The Sands of Inaros update also brings a complete overhaul for Warframe's UI, including new features and more intuitive settings for private conversations and player searching.

  • WARFRAME EMOJI -- It's never been easier to express yourself in Warframe. Share your feelings without words, using your favorite emoji as well as some fantastic Warframe exclusive emoji.
