Get ready to bend some water, as the next Warframe upcoming update adds a whole new Warframe, along with more additional content!
Starting July 6, Warframe players will be able to gain access to the game’s newest Warframe, Yareli. Marked as a legend in Fortuna, Yareli comes equipped with a number of aquatic based abilities, ranging from powerful geysers, ice blades, to even the ability to form an aquatic board to travel. She will be introduced as part of the new Sisters of Parvos quest line.
You can read up further on this upcoming Warframe update down below, though we will have a full changelog once the update is live on July 6.
Details on Warframe Upcoming Update
SISTERS OF PARVOS
The Corpus are manufacturing a new line of adversary — a sisterhood of elite hunters who live and die by the orders of Parvos Granum. These ruthless assassins – aided by their ferocious robotic Hounds – are the latest chapter in the Corpus’ aggressive expansion and must be neutralized at all costs. It won’t be easy, Tenno. The Sisters of Parvos possess enhanced strength and abilities and are equipped with the latest in high-tech Corpus weaponry.
Behaving as your personal antagonist, your Sister will hunt you while claiming Sectors of the Origin System for herself. Complete a Mission on “her” turf, and she’ll collect taxes on your Rewards — tithes you can only reclaim by killing or converting your Sister.
To begin, you must have completed both The War Within and Call of the Tempestarii Quests, and you must defeat your active Kuva Lich before taking on a fight with a Sister of Parvos.
THE HUNT BEGINS
Your Sister Candidate will reveal herself aboard any Corpus Ship once you reach Rank 1 in the Granum Void. Eliminate her with a Mercy Kill and your Sister will arise in the Origin System!
Battle your Sister’s mechanized Hound to acquire a new cutting-edge Companion and reveal her fatal sequence of Requiems. The final showdown in the Neptune Proxima will give you the chance to defeat your Sister once and for all. Convert her to gain on-call backup in Missions or an extra Railjack crewmember. Kill her to acquire cutting-edge weaponry and (hopefully) a dazzling Ephemera. It’s your call, Tenno.
THE LATEST IN CORPUS TECH
True to their high-tech status, the Sisters of Parvos have been outfitted with eight of the most advanced Weapons in the Corpus arsenal. Similar to Kuva Liches, the Warframe that spawns a Sister will determine the Bonus Damage Type of her prized Tenet Weapon (for example, a Sister spawned by Ember will have a Weapon with Bonus Heat Damage). Do you have what it takes to acquire them for yourself?
This discreet rocket launcher is equally at home in a board meeting or on a casual outing. Aimed rockets are wire-guided for greater accuracy, but travel more slowly. The patented Granum Attaché System reloads the weapon when holstered.
Itemize and execute with this pair of auto-lock-on, homing-projectile pistols. Shoot from the hip for a more conventional pistol experience. The patented Granum Attaché System reloads the pistols when holstered.
Dominate rivals with this pistol’s lightning fast rail-slugs. Head-shots speed up reload.
Parvosian upgrade of the classic Tetra. Slower fire rate but with a larger magazine. Can now alt fire an entire clip as a large burst radius grenade launcher.
TENET FLUX RIFLE
Sister-modified Flux Rifle with increased fire rate and range. Recharge has been replaced with ammo clips to accommodate greater power needs.
TENET ARCA PLASMOR
Custom variant of a Corpus classic. Staggering blasts now ricochet and have greater range at the cost of a slower fire and reload speed. Surviving enemies are consumed with radiation.
This reengineered Cycron features a refracting energy disc that can split off its main target hitting up to two additional nearby targets.
Parvos Granum’s engineers have made this already ferocious hand-cannon even more deadly with the addition of an alternate fire mode that empties an entire clip in one devastating burst.
MAKE WAVES WITH YARELI
Yareli is legendary in Fortuna for her selfless heroism against the oppressive Corpus regime. Tenno who have completed Vox Solaris will receive an invitation from Roky to unlock the Waverider Quest, a comic-based series of K-Drive challenges in the Orb Vallis that award Yareli’s Main Blueprint! Research the rest of her parts from the new Bash Lab Dojo Room and bring the Ventkids’ beloved hero to life!
This deceptively adorable Warframe summons a rideable creature named Merulina to move fast and free about the battlefield, harnessing the destructive power of the sea to crowd control enemies with oceanic fury.
Form three water globules that seek out enemies and expand on contact, simultaneously damaging and immobilizing their victims.
Summon Merulina, a rideable creature of the waves, and the inspiration for K-Driving. Merulina protects Yareli by absorbing a large portion of incoming damage.
Tear through foes with a trio of orbiting aquatic blades.
Drag enemies into a crushing maelstrom and then blow them away in a watery burst. Each enemy trapped in the vortex increases the burst’s damage.
PASSIVE: Yareli gains 100% increased critical chance for Secondary Weapons when she has been moving for at least 1.5 seconds.
Find Yareli and her full Waverider Collection in the in-game Market, including the Yareli Physalia Helmet, Kompressa Pistol, Merulina Syandana and 3-Day Affinity and Credit Boosters.
TURN UP THE HEAT WITH EMBER PYRAXIS
Prepare to set your Fashion Frame ablaze with white-hot Customizations from the Ember Pyraxis Collection, including the Ember Pyraxis Skin, the Volca Syandana and the Plazm Flamethrower Skin.
NEW SYNDICATE OFFERINGS
Each of the main Syndicates have expanded their offerings to include specialty Armor Sets, inspired by their unique aesthetics and styles. Mix these striking pieces into your Fashion Frame to show where your loyalties lie, or express yourself in-game using a slew of new Emotes.
HARROW CRUCIS HELMET
An alternate Helmet for Harrow, minister of the Void’s veiled verses. Find this Helmet in the in-game Market or as part of future Nightwave Cred Offerings rotations.
OLD BLOOD, NEW TRICKS
The final showdown with your Kuva Liches will now take place in the Proximas via Railjack, similar to the Sisters.
Confront Liches faster in three new ways: a streamlined Murmur system that identifies known Requiems faster; Oull — a Requiem Mod dropped exclusively from Liches that counts as a known Requiem no matter where it’s slotted on your Parazon; and the new Requiem Ultimatum — a Gear item that can be used on any influence node to summon your Lich or Sister for a fight on your terms.
Liches have also been reinforced with three new Kuva Weapons that will give your Arsenal a ferocious edge, should you choose to take them for yourself:
Forged at the behest of the Worm Queen herself, this already powerful shotgun now has the additional ability to fire from all four barrels simultaneously.
An even stronger Zarr cannon to meet the demands of Kuva Liches. With stronger explosive barrages, and long-range flak shots.
Reconfigured for maximum lethality, this powerful Arch-gun still shatters targets with explosive shells, but now reaches its peak fire-rate instantaneously.
Ticker’s Elite Crewmates are available via Command Intrinsic Rank 10, featuring extra Competency Points plus an additional bonus trait based on their existing strengths, be they Piloting, Gunnery or Engineering.
VOID STORM REWARDS 2.0
Although Void Storms remain as dangerous as ever, they now offer up exciting new Rewards: Corrupted Holokeys! Collect these valuable Corpus artifacts, bring them to Ergo Glast at any Relay and trade for new Tenet briefcase Melee Weapons, complete with bonus elemental damage! One of four Tenet Melee Weapons will be available each week in Glast’s rotation, so check back regularly with a fresh stash of Holokeys:
Drive the agenda with this massive impact hammer. Heavy attacks launch devastating energy disks.
Leverage bleeding-edge Granum tech with this massive heavy blade. Slam sends forth a cascading set of three shockwaves, while Heavy Slam unleashes a swath of shockwaves.
The sleek lines of the Granum Attaché case conceal an infinitely sharp two-handed blade. Blocked attacks have a chance to increase the blocking angle. Note: The Granum Attaché system pauses the combo timer when holstered.
On Heavy Slide Attack this Corpus scythe launches a spinning energy disk that ricochets throughout the battlefield. Its lifetime is derived from the size of the Combo Counter. Note: The Granum Attaché system pauses the combo timer when holstered.
MELEE WEAPON REBALANCE
You’ve worked hard for your weapons, Tenno, and we want you to use them! In an effort to make Warframe’s combat experience feel more even-handed, we’re addressing the growing imbalance between Melee and Primary/Secondary Weapons. Certain Melee Mods (as well as Glaive Weapons) will see a reduction in strength, while Arcane Slots plus a new series of Galvanized Mods will be introduced to both Primary and Secondary Weapons. This will encourage players of all Ranks to change up their weaponry based on strategy and tactics, rather than simply equipping what’s most powerful.
For full details on Melee Weapon changes, check out our Dev Workshop here.
Brand-new Galvanized Mods will be earnable via Arbitrations! To learn more about these powerful Mods for Primary/Secondary Weapons check out our Dev Workshop here.
STEEL PATH REWARDS
Walking the Steel Path has never been this rewarding, Tenno. Teshin’s Steel Path Honors are expanding to include exciting new Rewards such as a new Shotgun Mod and the highly-anticipated Veiled Riven Cipher.
The hidden blade of the Tenno is getting an upgrade to allow for easier Mercy Kills on all Eximus Units, Grineer Heavy Gunners and Bombards, Corpus Scrambus and Nullifiers, as well as Infested Ancients.
Increase your Parazon’s power even further with five deadly new mods that grant bonuses for hacks and Mercy Kills. For full details check out our Dev Workshop here.
LEGENDARY RANK 1
With all of the new additions to the Origin System as part of Sisters of Parvos, Tenno will have the chance to push themselves further than ever and earn prestigious Rewards with the all-new Legendary Rank 1. Will you rise to the challenge, Tenno?
Visit Son in the Necralisk on Deimos to outfit your Helminth with an upgrade capable of bestowing all-new Helminth Invigorations. Each week, your Helminth will offer up week-long buffs to three random Warframes. Maybe you’ll get extra crit chance and armor if you play as Atlas, or increased Melee Damage and Ability Efficiency if you load out as Excalibur. The options are endless and reset at the end of each week, so if you’re feeling a little rusty with any of the Warframes in your Arsenal, now’s the perfect time to dust them off for practice!
But that’s not the only thing your favorite stowaway has been chewing on. Visit the Helminth Infirmary in your Orbiter to give your Warframes one of five new Helminth Abilities, created with the help of our trusty Design Council!
Send out a short-lived Void Spark that is drawn toward the nearest Medallion, Ayatan Sculpture, unscanned Kuria or unscanned Fragment.
Grant yourself immunity to Status Effects.
Consume Energy to heal yourself and grant matching Energy to each ally.
Sacrifice Shields to reinforce Armor for a period of time.
Emit a pulse that adds stacks to Status Effects already afflicting enemies, except Bleed or Toxin effects which are duplicated with fresh timers.
Revert your favorite Kubrow or Kavat to their undeveloped juvenile state with the new Regress Genetic Aging option available in your Incubator! There’s no limit to the number of times you can revert your Companion, and their former stats and Customizations will remain intact should you change your mind. We have also removed DNA Stability and Loyalty degradation from the Companion System entirely, so you can spend more time fighting alongside your Pets and less time maintaining them.
