Warframe is one of the best free to play Xbox One games around. Players team up as Warframes, super-powered armored ninjas, and take on co-op missions across the galaxy. With quality third-person shooting and melee combat and plenty of co-op missions to complete, Warframe is a great value for both free and paying players.
Today Warframe received a massive update called 'Echoes of the Sentient.' The 2.6 GB update brings a new playable character, revamped movement and parkour, a new level and boss, tons of items, and much more. If that's not enough to get you playing, we also have 50 codes to give away to our excellent readers. Don't miss our update impressions with video, plus giveaway details!

Quick Echoes of the Sentient impressions
One of the update's most significant changes is the new movement system. Basically, players now have a variety of additional moves at their disposal. A new tutorial (pictured above and in the video) will teach players the following moves:
- Double jump
- Bullet jump
- Aim glide
- Attacking aim glide
- Wall dash (up)
- Wall dash (across)
- Wall latch (timed)
- Bullet jump (air direction)
- Wall dash
Learning the controls for the new moves and tweaked controls for existing moves certainly adds a learning curve. These moves feel good overall, but Digital Extremes really needs to settle on them permanently rather than revising the core gameplay every so often. Nobody wants to have to relearn the basic mechanics multiple times throughout a game's lifespan.
On the plus side, the new Equinox Warframe (pictured in most of this story's screenshots) is quite a looker. And all players get a trio of bonus items to mark the game's latest anniversary: Jade Calibur Noggle Statue, Jade color palette, and Seal of Honoring (a wearable logo). I haven't unlocked Uranus yet, but I look forward to the new Archwing missions and boss found there.
