Space ninjas unite! The latest update for Warframe, Echoes of the Sentient, includes new warframes, stages, improved parkour and more.

The detailed Dev walkthrough shows off only a portion of the Warframe’s new features.

New Updates include:

NEW WARFRAME — Equinox
Split between day and night, Equinox manifests aggressive and defensive forms at will.

Equinox’s powers include:
Power 1 – Metamorphosis: Switch forms between Day and night.
– Day-Form: Grants bonus damage and speed.
– Night-Form: Grants bonus shields and armor.

Power 2 – Rest and Rage
– (Day) Rage: Enemies in a small targeted area become vulnerable to damage.
– (Night) Rest: Enemies in a small targeted area are put to sleep.

Power 3 – Pacify and Provoke
– (Day) Provoke: Increases the Power Strength of nearby allies.
– (Night) Pacify: Reduces damage dealt by nearby enemies.

Power 4 – Mend and Maim
– (Day) Maim: Nearby enemies are bled and then subjected to a wave of slashing force.
– (Night) Mend: Allies are healed with each nearby enemy killed.

PLAYER MOVEMENT OVERHAUL — Players will experience a complete overhaul to movement in the game.

Changes include:
– Double Jump: Players can now use a second jump while in mid-air. Players will be able to jump again immediately after touching any surface or enemy.
– Bullet Jump: Pressing the ‘Jump’ button after sliding will send the player into a mid-air dash, temporarily improving movement speed. Players can use a Bullet Jump as a double jump in any direction.
– Wall Latch: Pressing the ‘Right Mouse Button’ button against a wall will allow players to latch onto flat surfaces for a limited duration. Players may fire their equipped Primary or Secondary weapon while using Wall Latch.
– Wall Dash: Pressing the ‘Jump’ button while against any surface will allow players to hop along the surface in any direction. This can be used to scale vertical surfaces, and can be chained indefinitely.
– Aim Gliding: Using the ‘Aim’ button while in mid-air will slow the player’s fall speed, enabling a slow glide that players can fire their weapon in any direction from.
– Ziplines: Pressing X while near a zipline will allow players to jump directly onto the zipline. Players can now run or dash along ziplines, and X to jump on a zipline can be done after a double jump.
