Warframe is set to go open world with Plains of Eidolon expansion

On July 9, 2017 by Ash Meehan


During TennoCon 2017, Digital Extremes announced Plains of Eidolon, a brand new expansion for Warframe. The newly announced expansion will see the inclusion of the game’s first open zone.

Following the announcement at TennoCon, a convention for Digital Extreme’s Warframe, information regarding how the new open world zone will work and what else the upcoming expansion will offer players.

If like me, you want to get straight to the point, here are the key features as provided, via Digital Extremes’ press release.

Key features in Plains of Eidolon include:

  • Landscapes (Open Zones)
    Until now, Warframe missions have taken place in relatively closed environments. With the Plains of the Eidolon expansion, players will set foot in a vast natural landscape free to explore on their own terms.
  • Meet the Inhabitants of Cetus
    Never before have Tenno encountered the faceless people whose lives they have saved, until now. Meet the Ostrons, a makeshift group of scavengers whose culture revolves around the grotesque harvesting of biomechanical tissue from long dormant Orokin Towers.
  • Different Kind of Mission
    In addition to discovering and exploring, players will engage in an assortment of missions to find and assemble new Warframes and weapons, items and more. Expect to strap on Archwing for air travel and battle, and experiment with customizing and modding a Warframe like never before.
  • Discover and Explore
    Plains of the Eidolon offers a sense of discovery, variety, and mystery that mixes several different environments and tones to create a deep sense of place. Experience a bristling new world in where the wind rustles across your Syandana and the age and size of giant Orokin structures ominously looms in the background. Earth will be more alive than ever before.

Of course, with the announcement came some gameplay. Digital Extremes’ release a 30-second teaser and 17-minute gameplay demo; both videos highlight the new open zone.

Warframe is a free-to-play cooperative third-person online action game available for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. For more information on Warframe, visit https://www.warframe.com/.
