Play to unlock 45th Warframe, Lavos.
Digital Extremes’ free-to-play shooter Warframe continues its ceaseless expansion with the arrival of latest update Operation: Orphix Venom on PlayStation 5, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Switch, following its launch on PC toward the end of last year.
Operation: Orphix Venom is described as a “first-of-its-kind survival event” designed for between one and four players, and sees Tenno leaving their Warframes and slipping into something a little roomier – in this case, a giant, stomping Necramech – to once again battle it out against the race of AI beings known as the Sentient.
Players will be loaned a Necramech for the event and, by doing repeated runs of Operation: Orphx Venom, can earn valuable upgrades known was Arcanes, alongside new alchemist Warframe Lavos – the 45th to be added to the game – who’s detailed more thoroughly in the video below. Three difficulty tiers are available, affecting the awards granted at the end of the mission.
It’s worth noting that players will first need to complete two previously released quests in order to access the operation: The War Within and Heart of Deimos. Additionally, this is a time-limited event (it’s already been and gone on PC) and will run until 8pm UK time on 22nd February, meaning you probably shouldn’t hang about if you want to make the most of it.
Those that play during the first three weeks will earn double Affinity and Digital Extremes says anyone that gift their Lavos to a friend will receive a free Lavos Orbiter decoration for their efforts.
