Digital Extremes officially announced today that Warframe has received its first major content update for 2017. The content update is called Octavia’s Anthem, and it marks the game’s four-year anniversary. Since the game first had its PC Beta in 2013, Warframe now has 30 million registered users.
The PC update offers players a new lore-driven quest in search of the musically enchanted Octavia Warframe. There’s also the introduction of a new musical instrument that allows players to actually compose original songs and synchronize them to their weapons in order to gain rhythmic dominance over the enemy. Other changes include players being allowed to capture, edit, and share their custom Warframes using the Captura photo capture tool. The update also features new weapons, helmets, glyphs and more. Here’s a full breakdown of the new features for the update (Courtesy of Digital Extremes):
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.
Additionally, the development team has revealed that there will be four anniversary gifts available for the game. On Tuesday, March 28, players will receive a free Dex Nouchali Syandana in their Landing Craft Inbox. Players can earn the Dex Sybaris, Dex Dakra, and Dex Furis in Alerts from Friday, March 24 to Monday, March 27 at 11:00 a.m. PST/2:00 p.m. ET.
The Octavia’s Anthem update for Warframe is now available for the game on Windows PC.
