Independent developer and publisher Digital Extremes is proud to announce the first major Warframe® update of 2017, Octavia’s Anthem, marks the game’s four-year anniversary. Once an experimental PC Beta in 2013’s volatile market, the free-to-play, cooperative online action game, Warframe, is now a critical success that provides players with consistent, significant updates on three platforms, and is powered by one of the most robust, dedicated communities in the industry including more than 30 million registered users. With more than 29 million Warframes crafted, 3 billion missions successfully completed, 14 trillion Crewmen killed, and 17 quadrillion XP earned, the past four years have kept players busy!
In light of its four-year birthday, Digital Extremes is marking this milestone with the release of its inventive new PC update that expands musical boundaries like none before it. Octavia’s Anthem has Warframe players journeying through an original, lore-driven quest in search of the musically enchanted Octavia Warframe. Along with Octavia comes the introduction of a simple-to-use musical instrument that enables players to compose original songs and synchronize them to their weapons to rhythmically dominate the enemy. Music isn’t just a tool of destruction in this update — players can create musical arrangements in cooperation with other Tenno and trade songs. For story buffs and lore fans, a newly written web comic, entitled What Remains, explores material well in advance of Octavia’s Anthem. Check the web comic’s first teaser cells here: warframe.com/octavias-anthem.
Additionally, players can capture, edit and share their customized Warframes using the robust Captura photo capture tool. The result is stunning Warframe images to use as wallpaper, screenshots and art. New Weapons, Helmets, Glyphs, and more are also included in this update, available today on PC for free.
Key features in the Octavia’s Anthem update include:
- NEW WARFRAME: Force your foes to face the music with Lotus’ newest warrior, Octavia. Octavia’s abilities are powered by the Mandachord, a formidable tool used to mix Melody, Bass, and Percussion into a harmony of destruction. Create cooperatively devised songs with friends in dojos, or download other Tenno-created songs and re-experience Octavia from a different perspective.
- NEW CAPTURA FEATURE: Don your best Fashion Frame, then capture and edit the ultimate image with a variety of filters, graphics and editing tools.
- NEW QUEST: The Octavia’s Anthem Quest will have you drawn into the Relay by the vast consciousness Cephalon Suda, whose strange, disoriented behavior warrants investigation. Find out what happened to Cephalon Suda before it’s too late and the knowledge she has collected is destroyed. Beware, Tenno, as darkness lingers.
- NEW WEAPONS: Wield two new weapons designed to work in synch with the Octavia Warframe.
