Canadian developer and publisher Digital Extremes recently announced that Warframe will be getting a re-invented version of its earliest environments called the Corpus Faction’s levels in The Deadlock Protocol.
The new content will be coming to PC first this week and will be introduced to other platforms later on. The Deadlock Protocol introduces the Corpus Faction’s dramatic origin story via richly re-crafted environments that integrate iconic new visuals and gameplay elements.
In this new version of the Corpus Faction aside from the re-imagined environment, the gameplay has been improved as well. There will be new challenges with the renewed Jackal boss with the fight sequence extended across multiple levels, and more. The new Granum Crowns introducs a new currency that will open up a wild variety of gameplay options like getting transported to a surprising new Corpus nether-realm. Almost all walls, corridors, and room support intense parkour mobility.
Corpus Origins Revealed
The Deadlock Protocol weaves larger-scale story implications into the modern Warframe narrative. Players must investigate the Corpus Faction’s desperate ploy to break their board’s political in-fighting. Through combat and discovery, Tenno will learn a small Corpus sub-faction has begun a devious plan to resurrect the faction’s founder, a revival posing an alarming new threat to the Origin System’s balance. Determined to strengthen their armada and bolster a growing space fleet against the Sentients and the Tenno, the Corpus’ plans for unbridled power must be put to an end. Do you have what it takes to confront the new Corpus threat, Tenno?
Protea has been introduced in this new content as well. She has the ability to stop enemies in their tracks by rewinding time. She also has an array of offensive and defensive grenades, drones, and turrets. Players can check on her origin story as the former Corpus head bodyguard in her own unique Quest. They can also check out the new technologically advanced weapons from the new Corpus Armor Set and Primary Rifle to the Gunblade Melee, new Kitguns throughout the update.
The Deadlock Protocol will first land on PC then by updates on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
