Warframe's remastered update, The Deadlock Protocol, now available on Switch

The time has come

Canadian developer and publisher Digital Extremes has reimagined Warframe®’s earliest levels in The Deadlock Protocol, available now on PlayStation®4, Xbox One, and Nintendo™ Switch. Like Chains of Harrow and The Jovian Concord before it, The Deadlock Protocol delivers iconic new visuals, sound and gameplay elements -- from parkour-friendly vertical remodeling to revved up boss fights to backstories behind the Corpus’s rise to power -- while also adding 2020’s newest Warframe, Protea.

Introducing Protea, the 43rd Warframe

Led by the powerful Ability to stop enemies in their tracks by rewinding time (using an Ability called the Temporal Anchor), Protea’s array of offensive and defensive grenades, drones, and turrets brings a battle tactician’s edge to the fight. Players can investigate her origin story as the former Corpus head bodyguard in her own unique Quest, and uncover a quiver of technologically advanced weapons from the new Corpus Armor Set and Primary Rifle to the Gunblade Melee, to new Kitguns and more.

Corpus Origins Revealed

The Deadlock Protocol weaves larger-scale story implications into the modern Warframe narrative. Players must investigate the Corpus Faction’s desperate ploy to break their board’s political in-fighting. Through combat and discovery, Tenno will learn a small Corpus sub-faction has begun a devious plan to resurrect the faction’s founder, a revival posing an alarming new threat to the Origin System’s balance. Determined to strengthen their armada and bolster a growing space fleet against the Sentients and the Tenno, the Corpus’ plans for unbridled power must be put to an end. Do you have what it takes to confront the new Corpus threat, Tenno?

Boss Fight Enhanced, Parkour Perfect

Nearly every aspect of the Corpus’ early environment has been upgraded, starting with gameplay. Fresh challenges begin with the renewed Jackal boss, a fight sequence now extended across multiple levels that dares players to rethink tactics. The new Granum Crowns bring a spendable currency that open up a wild variety of gameplay options, including being transported to a surprising new Corpus netherrealm. And now, nearly every wall, corridor, and room supports parkour mobility. For more detailed information, visit Warframe.com.

So, what are you waiting for? Download The Deadlock Protocol for free today on PC, PlayStation®4, Xbox One and Nintendo™ Switch.

Warframe "Deadlock Protocol" Profile - Protea

The newest Warframe to join the bunch

Prepared for any battle, the versatile Protea offers a wealth of advanced gadgets to overcome the odds. Time is your ally as you weave in and out of life-threatening engagements with your Temporal Anchor Ability.

GRENADE FAN

Activate to throw a cluster of shrapnel grenades, damaging and staggering nearby enemies. Hold to emit sticky shield grenades that latch onto allies and restore a large amount of shields.

BLAZE ARTILLERY

Place a temporary rapid-fire turret that automatically targets enemies. Each successful hit increases its damage, causing projectiles to pierce enemies and hit multiple foes with a single shot.

DISPENSARY

Deploy a cycling supply cache that can generate health, ammo and energy pickups periodically.

TEMPORAL ANCHOR

Activate to drop an anchor point that records Protea’s state. Any damage dealt to Protea during the Ability will be emitted back to your foes upon deactivation. Deactivating Temporal Anchor will rewind Protea back to the activation point restoring all ammo, energy, shields and health. If Protea is downed while Temporal Anchor is active, Protea will automatically rewind to safety!

The Deadlock Protocol update sheds new light on the origins of the Corpus, introduces the time-bending Warframe, Protea and includes a remastered Corpus fleet full of innovative threats and escalating security measures.

Digital Extremes shares a first look at Warframe's Corpus re-imagining, talks about the process

A complete overhaul of the area

When Warframe's Deadlock Protocol update hits, it's going to include a complete revamp of one of the game's oldest areas. The Corpus tileset is being rebuilt from the ground up, both visually and mechanically. Players can expect a fresh coat of paint, new backstory thrown into the area, and a reworked layout.

Digital Extremes’ Rebecca Ford spoke with IGN about the massive overhaul for the area.

“It was literally our first environment in Warframe. The main goal is to bring the quality and design up to 2020 Warframe standards. We also have a very significant goal of tying more lore and story into environments. We’re introducing a pretty big Corpus backstory and a new Protea Warframe quest in this update.”

Warframe's upcoming Hard Mode detailed

Ready for a real challenge?

Warframe has a wealth of content for players to enjoy, and there's always more on the way. Some of those players would like to be able to tackle that content at a harder difficulty, and Digital Extremes is more than happy to oblige.

The team has confirmed that a Hard Mode is on the way, and could end up seeing release with the Deadlock Protocol content, which should launch this month. Here's all the info on what Hard Mode has to offer.

- There will be two new difficulties. One hard, and once that’s completed ultra-hard will unlock.
- Hard Mode: Enemies base level +50
- Ultra Hard Mode: Enemies base level +100
- Rewards are being worked on as are resources
- XP is boosted naturally by the enemies levels
- Potentially mastery implementation
- Maybe some ship decorations for completing specific regions on hard mode
- New Mission selector menu, applied to every tile in the game

Digital Extremes announces Tennocon 2020 event packs and official charity partners

Enjoy Warframe for a good cause!

Canadian developer and publisher Digital Extremes announced today 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 it is now included in the very first Summer Game Fest program.

Following last year’s extended panel streams, Digital Extremes already 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 Extremes and 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.”

Since its debut in 2016, TennoCon’s digital streams, like Warframe itself, remain free. Players who would like to donate during the event itself can do so via Warframe’s Tiltify page, which will go live during TennoCon, Tiltify.com/.

HEALING DEFENDABLE OBJECTS

If you’re unfamiliar, these changes allow for Healing Abilities to be of more use in different strategies throughout various Mission types.

NINTENDO SWITCH UPDATE SIZE

The total download size for this update is ~800 MB, bringing Warframe’s total size to 20.3 GB, right under the base memory allowance. For Tenno who have not equipped their Nintendo Switch with an SD card, this means that having the necessary space may soon be necessary to accept future updates. We know this is not ideal, but we thank you for your understanding.
