What you need to know

  • Warframe is a free-to-play game on Xbox One and other platforms.
  • The title just got the long-awaited Empyrean update today.
  • Empyrean adds a new four-player co-op ship experience.
  • You can download Warframe for free through the Microsoft Store.

Today, developer Digital Extremes released the Empyrean update for Warframe on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Empyrean brings with it a new four-player co-op battleship experience.

On the brink of a looming war, both new and veteran Tenno will find themselves playing closely together using high-level cooperation and communication skills. Whether it's blasting hordes of opponent Fighters and Crewships, or shooting like a bullet from the Archwing Cannon into enemy vessels to commandeer or destroy them, players will wield new upgradeable offensive firepower. To truly succeed, Railjack squads will need both offense and defense. The working Railjack vessel takes damage, requires resources to keep ammo flowing, and will need players' coordinated attention, from dousing fires and welding hull holes to combating enemy boarding parties.

You can build a Dry Dock and Railjack by using resources obtained for free in the game, or simply buy it from the Warframe Marketplace. The latter is much easier. If you're wondering what's going on with this update on Nintendo Switch, you'll be happy to know that it's planned for 2020.
