Warframe’s Fortuna Expansion Is Live

Digital Extremes’s free to play game, Warframe, is back with its second open world expansion. For those, like me, who haven’t played since the launch of the PS4, Digital Extremes has moved from instanced missions to open world zones with a quest hub city.

Players can use the new K-Drive Hoverboard, which can do tricks, to explore a big new zone that includes underground areas, busy spaceport, and a secretive research facility. The Fortuna expansion also introduces new weapons, new enemies, and the blood thirsty Garuda warframe.

Canadian developer and publisher Digital Extremes’ next big Warframe® expansion, Fortuna, is available today on PlayStation 4® and Xbox One. The new open-world landscape is a portal to a fantastic environment chock full of new gameplay, activities and space ninja adventure. Whether Tenno are dashing across the frozen tundra on the Bondi K-Drive Hoverboard to explore caves, mountains, or mushroom forests, conserving rare local animals from extinction, fighting battles against spider-like Raknoids, or facing off with the greedy Corpus faction, Fortuna is available today for free.

PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players will meet the Solaris United Faction to kick off this enormous new expansion. Whether in the underground hub city of Fortuna or on the massive Orb Vallis on the planet surface, players can dive into Solaris United’s stories, learn about the plight of The Business, Eudico, Rude Zuud, the Ventkids, and others, and help them rebel against their brutal oppressors. With the trusty Archwing or the K-Drive Hoverboard players can blast across the wide open Venusian landscape to pull off grabs, spins, rails and explore the massive, alien Landscape.

While surveying the terrain, the Corpus occupiers, led by the profit-obsessed Nef Anyo, bring new weapons, systems, and facilities to bear including a bustling spaceport, a secretive research facility and a massive shrine to Nef Anyo. Tenno should keep an eye out for mechanical, spider-like machines known as Raknoids. These Corpus-designed creatures range in size and lethality, from tiny Mites to the massive, invulnerable Orbs that loom over the region. The new Alert System will keep all players on their toes.

There is so much to do! Follow the path of the bloody, powerful Garuda Warframe — who offers a deadly combination of health-based Abilities to wreak havoc on any enemy –conserve strange, wonderful animals of the Vallis from going extinct, gather resources via mining and fishing, and more. Come visit us on Venus!
