DE DOUBLES DOWN WITH KHORA, NEW GAME MODE

Friday April 20, 2018

With whip in-hand and a deadly purring Kavat by our side, we’re happy to introduce the first Warframe of 2018, Khora, in tandem with Sanctuary Onslaught, a team-based, survival-style game mode, both available today in the new Beasts of the Sanctuary update for all systems.

Khora is a versatile offensive and defensive dynamo with a unique arsenal of attacks. The stylistically armor-clad Khora wields a snake-like metallic whip that strikes from a distance and commands a metallic Kavat (cat pet) that quickly engulfs enemies in a whirlwind of pain. The new Sanctuary Onslaught mode, where Khora can be found, enables solo players, or a squad of up to four, to quickly dash through timed portals while blasting waves of increasingly powerful enemies. Both Khora and Sanctuary Onslaught together offer fresh new ways for Tenno to harness Warframe’s cooperative chaos, and both are free with the Beasts of the Sanctuary.

The 35th Warframe, Khora offers both deadly offensive attacks and team-oriented defensive tactics featuring four distinguished Abilities:

· Whipclaw: Send enemies reeling with a deafening whipcrack.

· Ensnare: Bind a hapless target in living metal, entangling others who stray too close. Disperse the trap with a crack of the whip.

· Venari: Summon a ferocious, gleaming Kavat. Use again to cycle between Attack, Protect, and Heal postures.

· Strangledome: Weave a dome of living chain that ensnares and strangles any enemy within, and any foolish enough to approach.

Check Warframe.com for the full list of Khora’s weapons and reinforcements.

Sanctuary Onslaught is ready for action! This new cooperative and competitive mode challenges players to work together to survive endless waves of Warframe enemies standing in their way of escaping through the next portal. Players must quickly slay enemies en masse while proceeding through uniquely crafted environments to random portals to escape — and then do it all again, all against the clock! Tenno eager to earn Khora can find her blueprints in Sanctuary Onslaught.
