The Digital Extremes development team has teased players for months now with one of the more iconic upcoming Warframes, Gauss — and he’s almost here! Like your favorite lightning-fast comic book characters, the 41st Warframe is a speed demon fueled by powers and abilities based on kinetic motion.
Experimenting with new Warframes like Gauss introduces players to a different perspective. Instead of, say, using that trusty tank (Rhino) or dead-quick gunslinger (Mesa), trying a new Warframe means approaching the game with a different perspective – and Gauss may scratch that speedy superhero itch!
Gauss can blaze across huge open expanses in seconds, speed across bodies of water, smash enemies like bowling pins, and wield Abilities like heat, cold, and even electricity to ravage his enemies. Xbox One players can get their hands on the fleet-footed new Warframe in just a few short weeks. We think you’ll love him.
Gauss headlines an eclectic, varied update for Warframe that go beyond his speedy abilities. We’re expanding the endless Disruption mode, offering players in chat a really fast, easy way to exchange Warframe looks and mods with Look Link and Mod Link, and giving the gift of music with the bizarre yet enticing Shawzin emote turned musical mini-game.
Last Spring’s update, The Jovian Concord, featured Alad V, a villain who has expanded his sale of black market technology across the Origin System, and with it, the popular Disruption mode has expanded.
Disruption mode’s growth includes new planets, mission types, and factions with added toughness to raise the stakes higher for veteran players. This expanded mode sets up Tenno against Alad V’s small army of Amalgams, hitting players with as many waves as players can handle.
More Disruption nodes will appear in unexpected places such as the Corpus Outpost, Grineer Galleon, Grineer Settlement, Grineer Kuva Fortress, and Orokin Moon. Planets and locations include:
- Grineer Settlement – Mars, Olympus
- Corpus Outpost – Neptune, Laomedeia
- Grineer Galleon – Sedna, Kelpie (Grineer)
- Grineer Galleon – Uranus, Ur (Infested)
- Grineer Kuva Fortress – Kuva Fortress, Tamu
- Lua – Lua, Apollo (Corpus)
New mission types comprise Sorties, Syndicate Alerts, and Void Fissures, while new factions include Grineer, Infested and Corpus. Gather a team, strategize, and conquer!
Fashion, Music, New Skins and More
Have you ever seen a friend’s Warframe that’s so stylistic and cool you wished you could just own it? We’re happy to announce that the new, intuitive and easy-to-use Look Link and Mod Link chat features will soon be available for Xbox One players.
It’s as quick and simple as selecting your Warframe design or Mod loadout and posting it to share in chat, or importing a shared design and loadout from a fellow Tenno with a simple click. This clip from our Devstream illustrates how both Look Link and Mod Link work:.
We’re betting you’ve always wanted to play a sci-fi guitar in Warframe. Our dev team was playing around thinking the same exact thing! So, they transformed a simple emote into a mini music game. By purchasing the musically enticing Shawzin Emote you can impress friends as the Origin System’s most renowned bard. The Shawzin is a guitar-like instrument (available in the Marketplace) that offers Tenno the chance to woo fellow players or pluck alongside them.
A few of the smaller — but no less attractive — inclusions are:
- With the Infested Dojo Decoration Set, Tenno can decorate their clan Dojo with an aesthetic inspired by the Infection faction. Gross, yet captivating!
- The Harrow Deluxe Collection (available for purchase in the Marketplace) features a new Deluxe Skin, a matching Armor Set and Weapon Deluxe Skin for Spearguns.
- Expand your arsenal of Riven Mods. Players can now increase their collection of Riven Mods from 90 to 120.
Gauss is only a matter of weeks away for Xbox One players. Check your gear, get back into the swing of things, and prepare yourself with the swift action of Gauss! Hone your skills for the high stakes of the expanded Disruption mode and prepare to experience the Fashion Frame and Mod-sharing bonanza of the Look Link and Mod Link features.
