Warframe Gets a New Co-op Survival Mode and a New Warframe
Digital Extremes has released a new update today (May 10th, 2018) for console version of its Free to Play game Warframe. The update is entitles Beasts of the Sanctuary.
Highlighted by the multifaceted Khora, the first new Warframe of 2018, and Sanctuary Onslaught, a totally new team-based, survival-style mode, Beasts of the Sanctuary challenges players to find the perfect balance of speed, shooting and style, all for free. You can also jump into the fray now to participate in the time-limited Plague Star Event, starting Wednesday, May 9 and ending Monday, May 21.
So, what is up with the new warframe. The stylistically armor-clad Khora is said to offer up a versatile combination of offensive and defensive capabilities starting with a metallic whip that strikes from a distance and follows up with a metallic Kavat (cat pet) that quickly engulfs enemies in a whirlwind of pain.
The new Sanctuary Onslaught mode, where Khora can be found, enables solo players, or a squad of up to four, to quickly dash through timed portals while blasting waves of increasingly powerful enemies. Both Khora and Sanctuary Onslaught together offer fresh new ways for Tenno to harness Warframes cooperative chaos, and both are free with the Beasts of the Sanctuary.
Khoras Abilities include:
- Whipclaw: Send enemies reeling with a deafening whipcrack.
- Ensnare: Bind a hapless target in living metal, entangling others who stray too close. Disperse the trap with a crack of the whip.
- Venari: Summon a ferocious, gleaming Kavat. Use again to cycle between Attack, Protect, and Heal postures.
- Strangledome: Weave a dome of living chain that ensnares and strangles any enemy within, and any foolish enough to approach.
Sanctuary Onslaught challenges players to work together to survive endless waves of Warframe enemies standing in their way of escaping through the next portal. Players must quickly slay enemies en masse while proceeding through uniquely crafted environments to random portals -- and then do it all again, all against the clock.
