Warframe Update Today Adds New Warframe, New Game Mode & More

April 23, 2015 Written by Jason Dunning

Available now on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, the Sanctuary update for Warframe gives you access to Chroma, a master of the elements, as well as new weapons, a new Quest, a new game mode, and more.

Here’s the patch highlights:

New Warframe – Chroma

  • Chroma is a master of the elements — a playable Warframe whose powers alter depending on what color energy is used when customizing appearance. Breathe fire, lightning, toxins or freezing air on enemies and buff allies with unique element-specific auras. Able to animate his pelt into a deadly, hovering turret, Chroma’s blend of squad buffs and offensive firepower make him a versatile member of any team.

New Game Mode – Cephalon Capture

  • Cephalon Capture is our latest addition to Warframe’s PvP, featuring a limited selection of Warframes and weapons exclusively balanced for a competitive Capture the Flag style game mode. Join the brand-new Conclave Syndicate led by Teshin, a survivor of the Old War who seeks to advance Tenno through self-discipline.

New Quest – The New Strange

  • Hunt a curious new threat across the Solar System, guided by Cephalon Simaris and his new Sanctuary. Learn more about the unique interaction between Cephalons while trying to unravel the mystery behind the Arcane Codices. This Quest serves as not just an introduction to Synthesis Scanning, Sanctuary’s unique target hunting Scanners, but also rewards Chroma’s blueprints upon completion.

Sanctuary

  • Overseen by Cephalon Simaris, the Sanctuary is place where Tenno can work together for a common goal. Track down rare targets in missions and add them to the Sanctuary’s database using the Synthesis Scanner, unlocking new lore. Earn standing with Simaris and practice future Mastery tests or pit battle strategies against enemies in the Codex.

Full patch notes are available on the Warframe forums, with the team looking into fixing a problem where the “patcher is currently re-downloading all of the updates (again).”
