Empyrean, the next-level co-op update for the ever-popular shooter Warframe, has arrived on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. This new content is based around co-op, bringing the Railjack battleship to the front lines of space combat. Comprising of crews of up to four players, the battleship will require communication and co-operation in order to keep the weapons online and to repair damage in real time, even repel boarding parties. Not unlike a spacefaring version of Sea of Thieves.
New and returning Tenno will cooperate to beat the enemy ships, and you’ll need to protect the Railjack vessel, welding holes in the hull and putting out fires to stop enemy boarding, so it’s more than just a dogfight.
The Railjack can be customised, and the experience is designed for squads, with more solo capabilities coming in 2020. There’s even a Free Flight Mode to test out the Railjack, which has technology like cloaking fields to utilise. By the way, you can buy cheap Warframe Platinum from 5mmo.com, where you can enjoy a 3% discount by using the code “5MMO”.
There are new game systems with this update as well, including Intrinsics for an RPG-like progression system, building your own skills by using points. Then there are Avionics, upgradeable powers for your vessels, as well as components and armaments to consider as well.
Building the Dry Dock and Railjack requires resources available in-game and the marketplace, and Nintendo Switch users can expect to enjoy all of this next year (PC players have already tried the update).
Warframe is a free-to-play game, available for download across PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. It’s developed by Digital Extreme and is easily one of the best free-to-play game offerings with consistent game updates and fresh content.
