Digital Extremes have released a major update for their highly successful free-to-play third person action game, Warframe. Released last month on PC, Octavia’s Anthem is finally available for PS4 and Xbox One players to enjoy. The new update brings a new Warframe, new weapons, a new quest and much more.

Here is a breakdown of the new update and a more detailed look at the new Warframe Octavia:

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.

OCTAVIA’S ABILITIES:

Passive: Briefly replenish energy for Octavia and nearby allies when abilities are activated.
Mallet (Percussion)
• Rhythmically beats damage into nearby enemies and draws their fire. Damage inflicted on the Mallet increases its lethality.
Resonator (Bass)
• Launches rollerball that charms foes to follow it. When it vanishes, charmed enemies stagger. Combines with the Mallet to create a roving ball of musical devastation.
Metronome (Melody)
• Grants buffs to those who consistently perform actions in time to Octavia’s music. Timed jumps offer the Vivace speed buff. Crouching on the beat grants cloaking with the Nocturne buff. Firing rhythmically bestows Opera a multishot buff. Timed melee swings gives the Forte damage buff.
• *Please note: In missions with multiple Octavias present, the UI will indicate buffs for every active Octavia, but you’ll only benefit from the strongest of those buffs.
Amp
• Draws power from the decibel level of sound in the area and uses it to amplify a damage buff for Octavia and her allies. It also doubles the damage and range of nearby Mallets.

• 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.

• TENNOGEN ADDITIONS: More than a dozen new skins, Syandana, helmets have been added. They include:

o Sari Syandana
o Frost Emperor Skin
o Ember Graxx Skin
o Saryn Graxx Skin
o Frost Hailstorm Skin
o Nekros Lazarus Helmet
o Mag Induction Helmet
o Spitefire Syandana
o Liset Hellkite
o Atlas Telamon Helmet
o Mag Torodial Helmet
o Setka Syandana
o Ash Carabid Helmet
o Excalibur Ogrant Helmet
o Banshee Echo Helmet

Warframe is currently available as a free-to-play title across PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
