Digital Extremes Reveals a First Look at "Warframe: Empyrean"

The next expansion for Digital Extreme's sci-fi MMO Warframe was teased today at the PC Gaming Show. Warframe: Empyrean will add some ship to ship PvP content to the game.

According to Warframe publisher Digital Extremes, "Empyrean is Digital Extremes' ambitious cooperative space combat expansion, launching 1-4 players seamlessly from land into space into cooperative, tactical, ship-to-ship combat. For more Empyrean news, watch the trailer now and prepare to watch the biggest TennoCon event ever this summer on Saturday, July 6."

More details on the tease came from PC Gamer themselves:

First announced last year at Tennocon, Empyrean takes a team of three players into orbit around planets to fight against enemy capital ships. It's kind of like FTL in that each player on the ship will have different responsibilities to juggle, like putting out fires or repelling enemy invasions, boarding the enemy ship to sabotage it from the inside, or shooting at squadrons of enemy ships. It looks hectic and ambitious as hell.

This is just a tease, though. The trailer debuting at the PC Gaming Show does hint at some exciting details, like space flight being available in multiple areas instead of just above Venus, but the full reveal will happen at Tennocon on July 6. The physical event is in London, Ontario, Canada, but if you don't feel like making the pilgrimage you can instead watch it on Twitch. Ford also revealed that all Twitch viewers who link their Warframe account with Twitch will also get a free Nekros Prime.

More information will be given at TennoCon on July 6th, 2019.

Warframe is headed to space in a new expansion that adds ship-to-ship combat with you and two friends.
