Build a Crew, Battle and Board Massive Enemy Ships, Explore New Aerial Tactics With Zephyr Rework/Deluxe and Prepare for Call of the Tempestarii, Coming Soon to All Platforms
LONDON, ONTARIO – March 19, 2021 – Empowered by player feedback to fulfil Warframe®’s ultimate space fantasy, Digital Extremes has delivered an ambitious re-imagining of space-battle gameplay with the streamlined Corpus Proxima & The New Railjack today on PC. Seamlessly intertwining large-scale space combat with fast, frenetic ninja action, Corpus Proxima & The New Railjack ramps Warframe’s space fantasy to new levels of intensity, while setting the stage for Call of the Tempestarii, which debuts the reaper-like Warframe Sevagoth and a ghostly Railjack story quest this spring on all platforms.
Tenno can earn everything for free in Corpus Proxima & The New Railjack or they can jump into the action and save time by purchasing Railjack in-game through three bundle tiers, including the Railjack, Crew Slots, Nautilus Sentinel and Nautilus Sentinel Accessories. See Warframe.com for more details and pricing.
The player-friendly Dev Workshop Video summarizes how and why changes were made to Railjack and shows how improvements will benefit new and veteran players alike. Make sure to watch the bold new Zephyr Rework in the gameplay video below, and prepare to command the sky with her enhanced Abilities and sleek new Deluxe skin in this update today.
Build, Board and Battle
Re-worked to embody the core Warframe experience, every aspect of Corpus Proxima & The New Railjack’s redesign is renovated and simplified for less grind and less reliance on matchmaking. Now, all players can enjoy building their personal Railjacks, boarding Corpus Capital ships to sabotage from within, or annihilating them with an arsenal of new ordnance.
“Integrating some of our players’ favorite gameplay, like Necramechs, and adding new core Warframe modes, into this new update transforms Corpus Proxima & The New Railjack into something more unified and essential,” said Sheldon Carter, COO. “This update is so incredibly diverse!”
Corpus Proxima & The New Railjack embraces epic spaceship battles more than ever, with integrated new gameplay modes interwoven with core, familiar gameplay. Tenno can still rely on their favorite Archwing Slingshot to board and pilot enemy ships, and collect, fight and explore in their battleship. But Railjack missions now unite classic Warframe gameplay with Railjack battles, core reward loops, and even hardcore mech gameplay.
New Modes, Expanded Gameplay
By introducing the heavy guns of Necramech gameplay into Corpus Proxima & The New Railjack, players will experience a new sense of variety, surprise, and powerful artillery to crush Corpus forces into oblivion.
With the expansion of Orphix mode (introduced in the Orphix Venom Event late last year) into space battles, players can now board enemy ships and take down sentient invaders using Operators and their devastatingly powerful Necramechs. By weaving in familiar gameplay elements in a new way, players can now hunt and collect valuable Arcanes to boost their Warframes instead of earning currency, and crack relics to unlock Warframes and for the first time, Warframe Primes, such as Ash Prime!
And blending even more variety into Corpus Proxima & The New Railjack, the all new mission “Volatile” invites players to take on the ultimate challenge — to sabotage the biggest enemy threat, the Corpus Capital ship! Help Cephalon Cy from the inside to create a Reactor failure while fighting off enemy engineers bent on your destruction. This is just the beginning of a slew of new content with more to come!
New Intrinsics and Avionics
The re-worked, improved Command Intrinsics give battle-ready Tenno more control, more gametime, and less waiting around. Command your own NPC crew by recruiting, leveling up, customizing and commanding AI.
Similarly, the newly reworked Avionics System shifts power from the ship to the individual player using the Harness System, so players use their individual skills and powers, as well as squad-wide buffs, to customize their Railjack crews for more control and deadlier firefights.
“The shift from ship-side to player-side Command Intrinsics makes a world of difference,” said lead producer Dave Kudirka. “We’re very psyched for players to try out our new NPCs!”
More Fun, Less Grind
The more streamlined experience also means players don’t need a Dojo or Drydock to own a Railjack, and Relays will play a more intuitive part in recruiting crews for missions across a variety of planets.
“We thought a lot about how to make Railjack better and more fun,” explained Carter. “Player feedback was very direct. You told us straight up, ‘give us more control and streamline the experience’ and this update is built with that input in every aspect.”
Building up the Railjack and recruiting a crew is not only key to defeating the Corpus now, it’s crucial to recruiting the new Warframe Sevagoth, countering Void Storms, and experiencing the ghostly Railjack story quest in the Call of the Tempestarii.
