Warframe teases The Sacrifice trailer and June update – including the next frame

Warframe has been busy preparing its next major story update. It’s called The Sacrifice, it’s coming in June, and it’s even getting an honest to goodness teaser trailer and splash page ahead of E3 and TennoCon.

“As dreams fade and wars quiet, the time has come to embrace the greatest Warframe test of all. Following the Cinematic Quests The Second Dream and The War Within comes The Sacrifice, the next story-based update in the free-to-play hit, Warframe. Are you ready, Tenno?”

The press release is vague, but according to the game’s most recent stream (and its full text summary), you can rest assured that there will be no more major updates until The Sacrifice is live. Players also got a sneak peek at the game’s next frame, which has been nicknamed “Vlad” by the team. He can afflict enemies and turn them into his personal engine of affliction, sleep enemies in an area, and turn himself into a mist form that leeches health and shields from enemies he passes through. There’s also talk about individually moddable Exalted weapons and things like new Dojo decorations.

MOP reader Sophiskiai notes there are spoilers for the storyline in here, so watch at your peril!

Also of note, the splash page and the trailer’s YT page give the promo code “OLDFRIEND” (valid till July 20th) for a 3 day xp booster and free Orokin Tea Set decoration. Because nothing says WARFRAME! like having a fancy tea party :)

That trailer is really weird – most of it seems to be showing off the Operator fashionframe of a bunch of hardcore players each with thousands of hours playtime, there’s a few clips of past quests around the edges and after the last fashionframe profile, then about 5 seconds of actual trailer at the very end?

Vlad looks really cool though, particularly after how disappointed I was with Khora!

The music video at the end of the devstream is the winner of the 3rd “Tenno Tunes” contest, which had its results announced last week – I’m particularly fond of the 5th place winner, Heavy Malyari’s synthwave track “Into the Void”:

But am dead impressed by the 1st place winner, RustyFIN’s music video in the style of an G.I. Joe style Saturday morning cartoon theme tune from the 80s (contains spoilers for the “Apostasy” mini-quest)

I can’t keep up with all the warframes! I have maybe 10, and only about half are maxed out. Last night I got my Inaros up to 20. That one is going to be my 2nd or 3rd favorite (Limbo first; then possibly Octavia second).

Octavia is my favourite for many activities…CC is pretty unmatched if done properly. Really though…I think I just like writing new musical beats for her abilities. ;)

(btw, Inaros is a beast…love that Frame, too!)

Haven’t had time to watch the stream yet. Is there any connection with The Red Veil? Those guys certainly yammer on a lot about Sacrificing things. (Although the concept of sacrifice itself is pretty common in the game.)

They’ve been very hush-hush about what the quest is going to involve, but have hinted that some of the stuff from Harrow’s quest is going to be very important going forward and a lot of that was connected with the Red Veil.

It’s in the Dev Stream, not the trailer. The link to the summary has some gif excerpts from the stream showing the new frame: https://www.warframe.com/news/devstream-112-overview
