Digital Extremes, the developer behind the popular online game Warframe, recently unveiled exciting new details about their upcoming Cinematic Quest titled “Whispers in the Walls.” This highly anticipated update promises to deliver a wealth of fresh content and gameplay enhancements to the already expansive Warframe universe.
During their 175th monthly Devstream, Digital Extremes gave players a sneak peek into what they can expect when “Whispers in the Walls” is released in December. The update is set to be a game-changer, offering both new and long-time players a captivating narrative experience.
Answering Age-Old Mysteries in the Warframe Lore
One of the most intriguing aspects of this update is its promise to provide answers to decade-old mysteries within the Warframe lore. For a game built around its immersive storytelling, this is sure to be a significant moment for the community. Creative Director Rebecca Ford expressed that “Storytelling is the heart and soul of Warframe.” The development team has a history of taking creative risks to expand the game’s universe, and “Whispers in the Walls” appears to be no exception.
The update introduces a range of new features and content, including:
- New Enemy Faction: Players will encounter a new enemy faction known as the Murmur. These foes are characterized by their grotesque amalgamations of limbs and brutalist geometry, adding an extra layer of challenge to the game’s combat dynamics.
- Grimoire Weapon Class: Warframe enthusiasts will have the opportunity to wield the Grimoire, a never-before-seen secondary weapon type. This eldritch tome allows players to unleash devastating attacks, sending enemies’ limbs flying in all directions.
- Player Hub – The Sanctum: “Whispers in the Walls” introduces a new player hub called The Sanctum. Here, players can interact with new characters like Loid, who has been trapped in cryosleep for untold ages. The hub also features highly detailed visuals and serves as a central location for various activities.
- New Environments: Players will explore new environmental tilesets within the Entrati Labs, providing a fresh backdrop for missions. Additionally, they will venture beyond the walls of their previous world, encountering surreal and enigmatic landscapes filled with mysteries waiting to be uncovered.
- Secret Syndicate: As players explore the new zones, they may stumble upon a secret Syndicate, adding an element of discovery and intrigue to their gameplay experience.
- Tennokai Power: Upon completing the “Whispers in the Walls” questline, players will gain access to Tennokai, a feature that allows for Melee Heavy Attack moments without consuming the Combo Counter. This rewards players with more dynamic combat options while maintaining their Combo count.
