Indie developer and publisher Digital Extremes have released the highly anticipated Warframe update, “Chains of Harrow“, on PS4 and Xbox One. Originally released on PC on June 28, 2017 the new update brings loads of new content including a new Warframe, quest and much more.
The latest update to hit Warframe brings with it a new a new frame, Harrow, that harnesses the power of the Void to reinforce allies’ defenses and amplify their lethality. Harrow’s first ability, Condemn, chains enemies in place while strengthening Harrows shields. His second ability, Penance, allows him to sacrifice his shields to gain health regen based on the amount of damage he does while also granting increased fire and reload rate. Harrow’s third ability, Thurible, provides bursts of energy to Harrow and all alies within range every time he gets a kill. Finally, his last ability Covenant protects all alies within range from all damage and status effects for a short period of time.
Alongside the new frame, the new update also brings with it a new quest that will appear in the Codex for those who have completed The War Within and unlocked Mot in the Void. The visuals on Earth have also been revamped to include remastered environments, vegetation and lighting. A new Grineer enemy has also been included in the update. Nox is part of the Elite Chem Strike Unit and wields a toxin-filled heavy gun. The gun shoots blobs of toxic goo that attach themselves to targets before exploding.
Lastly, two new weapons have been added to the game. Here is a breakdown of the new weapons:
- Knell (pistol): Ring the death knell. Every headshot from this scoped pistol increases Critical Chance for a short period.
- Scourge (spear): Blast targets with corrosive plasma projectiles, or toss the scepter to inflict nearby enemies with an energy field that amplifies their brain waves to attract bullets.
Warframe is currently in open beta as a free-to-play title on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
