New Game Mode the First of Three Significant Warframe Updates Coming in June and July Leading to The War Within.
London, On. (June 14, 2016) – Independent developer and publisher Digital Extremes announced today full details on the highly anticipated new Warframe game mode, Lunaro. Following three successful years in open beta, today’s Lunaro announcement stands as a testament to the developer’s commitment to continue bringing new and significant core updates to its growing community of over 22 million Warframe players worldwide on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Lunaro is set to launch on PC later this week with consoles to follow at a later date.
Since Warframe first launched in open beta, Warframe players, better known as Tenno, have mastered a wide variety of Warframe armor, tirelessly battled enemies, and pushed the limits of space and underwater combat. With Lunaro, Tenno may look forward to a reprieve from battle with the introduction of this time honored sport.
This new, fast-paced, competitive team sport challenges players to use skill, mobility, teamwork, and creativity for victory and honor. Accessed in-game through the Conclave, Lunaro invites Tenno to join team Sun or team Moon with up to four players per team. Teams must defend their goal while doing their best to score by shooting the ball (or Lunaro) through the opponents’ goal. Tenno may defend their zone by smashing the Lunaro out of the opponent’s possession or by knocking them down with a crushing hit.
