"As most players know by now, we’re bringing The New War back to TennoCon! It’s going to be a special moment for all of us, as it’s been a while since we first discussed this expansion with players. We truly hope Tenno will enjoy a day dedicated to them and the memorable experiences we’ve shared together in Warframe."
Digital Extremes released a trailer today to tease the gameplay reveal of The New War, and while the details themselves are scant, the trailer does provide a small glimpse into what could be the setting as well as overall tone of the upcoming expansion.
You can tune into Warframe's upcoming expansion reveal on Twitch this Saturday. This expansion has been one the team at DE has been building up to for years, and the team is doing what they can to support the reveal by including an in-game preview event according to Rebecca Ford, Live Operations and Community Director at Digital Extremes says in the same release.
"We’ve spent a lot of time talking about The New War on Devstreams and at past TennoCons. We’ve shown cinematics, added in-game messages and lead ups, and now the wait is over… we are so excited to finally provide some answers and give everyone a small piece of what’s to come with The New War. We’re thankful for the patience of our players and we look forward to seeing their reactions to some of our big reveals in the chat. Their support creates this event, it gives players all over the world the opportunity to celebrate together each and every year. And this year, we have a special in-game preview event that players will appreciate."
