Laying Early Framework for Empyrean, The Old Blood Update Also Unveils Major Upgrades to Melee Combat, Reworked Warframes Ember and Vauban, and Much More.

LONDON, ON – 1st November 2019 – Issuing in its biggest update to date for 2019, Canadian developer and publisher Digital Extremes gives Warframe® players the powerful The Old Blood update, available for free today on PC.

The Old Blood commands players’ attention by introducing their immortal foe the Kuva Lich, a brand-new Nemesis-like game system to Warframe, and debuts the 42nd Warframe, the insatiable Grendel.

This substantial update also ties in a meaty upgrade to Melee Combat, with hundreds of buffed/re-balanced weapons, mid-air melee attacks (juggles), improved combos, and more. It also reworks two classic Warframes, Ember and Vauban, for modern audiences.

FACE YOUR IMMORTAL NEMESIS: THE KUVA LICH

The much-anticipated debut of the Kuva Lich challenges veteran players with a new Nemesis-like game system. As players encounter and re-encounter their evolving nemesis, the Kuva Lich amasses resources, territory, and allies that will alter their next encounter, whether planetside or, when Empyrean launches, aboard a deep space warship.

Use the new Parazon, the hidden blade of the Tenno, to confront and kill the Kuva Lich in its most powerful form, if you dare.

TRAMPLE YOUR PREY WITH THE 42ND WARFRAME

A nightmarish predator to his foes but a compassionate liberator to his allies, Grendel, the 42nd Warframe, is armed with stomach-churning Abilities that consume and regurgitate his enemies.

These Abilities empower his party and deal massive damage, and also can send Grendel barreling over the opposition. Grendel can be constructed from parts acquired free in-game or purchased in the Marketplace.

Visit The Old Blood news post for more information about Grendel, including a full description of his Abilities.

EXPERIENCE MASSIVE CHANGE IN MELEE CHANGES: PHASE 2

Starting today, Tenno will experience substantial upgrades to the melee combat system with “Melee Changes: Phase 2.” This overhaul streamlines and deepens Warframe’s lightning fast melee combat.

At the same time, it bolsters hundreds of weapons with substantial buffs and re-balanced stats to empower more brutal, devastating close quarter combat.

These upgrades also feature a reworked Combo System that makes initiating, chaining and ending combos seamless and intuitive and new Heavy Attacks to lift, juggle and pummel enemies in air. For more details, visit the Developer Workshop forum post on Warframe.com.

EMBER AND VAUBAN REVISED

The Old Blood Update also delivers the reworks for Warframes Ember and Vauban, with adjusted stats and re-imagined core Abilities to make some of the oldest Warframes feel fresh and better suited for modern day Warframe gameplay. For complete details, go to Warframe.com.

Download Warframe The Old Blood update on PC today. Look for the console versions in the near future.
