'Warframe' (ALL) Rolls Out Nightwave 3, TennoCon 2020 Event Packs and Charity Partners

by Rainier on May 12, 2020 @ 5:46 p.m. PDT

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.

It’s time to hone your crime-solving skills, Tenno. Beginning today, Warframe players can dive into the first new episode of Nightwave 3 to track the so-called ‘Glassmaker’, an enigmatic serial killer who leaves a trail of crystallized bodies in his wake.

Available on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, The Glassmaker offers 30 tiers of instant daily, weekly, and elite weekly rewards including must-have exclusives such as Cephalon cosmetics, Operator accessories, Nora Night’s Landing Craft, and more. Also available with Nightwave 3 is Ash’s second Deluxe Collection, including her new signature skins for the Cremata Syadana and Causta Bow.

Canadian developer and publisher Digital Extremes also announced purchases of its new TennoCon Game Packs will support its two charity partners, Autism Ontario London and The Alzheimer Society London and Middlesex.

For the fifth year running, Digital Extremes’ TennoCon, the Warframe-dedicated game conference created for its 50 million-plus player base, will take place from 11 am to 6 pm ET, Saturday, July 11. Due to health restrictions created by the Coronavirus (COVID-19), TennoCon 2020 will be an all-digital event, and will be included in the first Summer Game Fest.

Following last year’s extended panel streams, Digital Extremes had planned to expand digital programming in 2020 so more players from home could experience and celebrate the joy of TennoCon. This year, working from home, DE will broadcast all TennoCon content live via Twitch, Mixer, YouTube, and Facebook Live.

Three new TennoCon packs were designed for players to feel the excitement and connectedness of TennoCon’s all-digital conference in lieu of a physical event. The Digital Pack ($24.99 USD) is an exclusive suite of in-game cosmetics, items and Baro’s Relay; the Merch Pack ($34.99 USD) includes exclusive physical TennoCon gear (beautiful commemorative T-shirt and pin). And the TennoCon Bundle ($54.99 USD) combines both Digital and Merch Packs at a discounted rate. Check Warframe’s website for more details.

Because TennoCon is a charity event, a portion of all proceeds will be given to Digital Extremes’ valued partners, Autism Ontario London and Alzheimer Society London and Middlesex (ASLM), two community-oriented, local Canadian organizations that help citizens in need of special attention and care.

“Autism Ontario London is excited to partner with Digital Extremesand bring a greater understanding of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) to the game industry,” said Kelly Wilson, Autism Ontario London - Chapter Development Coordinator. “In Canada 1 in 66 children and youth is diagnosed with autism, making autism one of the most common developmental disabilities. It is vital that those living with autism – whether personally diagnosed or caring for another –receive the support needed to manage the challenges they face. We are thankful for the partnerships with community-focused organizations like Digital Extremes that help us provide support to autism.”

“We are thrilled that Digital Extremes selected our organization as one of the partner charities for TennoCon 2020,” said Carol Walters, CEO of the Alzheimer Society London and Middlesex (ASLM). “Families living with dementia can feel isolated, overwhelmed and anxious in normal times and these last few months have been anything but normal. The need for dementia support services in our region continues to rise and if the COVID-19 crisis has shown us anything, it is the power of community coming together to help others. We are grateful for this partnership and appreciate Digital Extremes commitment to supporting our work, our clients and our community.”
