Warframe’s next Cinematic Update from Digital ExtremesJade Shadows, will lift the darkness from a fan favorite character in a new single-player Quest on June 18 for free across all current platforms. Today’s Devstream also dove deeper into the 57th Warframe Jade’s abilities, showcased footage of the new Ascension mission type and Clan Operation: Belly of the Beast, broke down TennoCon 2024’s full schedule and roster of special voice guests, revealed the date for Soulframe’s first-ever dedicated Devstream, among other ardent announcements.

“This marks our last Devstream until TennoCon, so we tried to pack it with as many goodies as we could to chew on until then," said Megan Everett, Community Director. "The team has really been looking forward to finally tell the Stalker’s story. We’ve also never made a Warframe like Jade before, we’re all stoked! So stay hungry Tenno, we are cooking some real tasty treats for everyone with Jade Shadows and beyond. Sometimes it's a detour from the main story, sometimes it's all connected, we intend to keep everyone on their toes for the rest of the year."

Highlights from the stream include:

Shine a light onto the dark mysteries around one of Warframe’s most cryptic characters, the Stalker, in the latest narrative Quest, Jade Shadows. After Quest completion and newfound knowledge is gained, embody the 57th Warframe, Jade, the song of devastation. Acting in a support-type role, Jade channels her “angelic choir” inspirations to sing buffing solos for extra damage or shield regen, inflicting enemy slowdown, or pools of healing light. Cast her ultimate ability to take to the skies and remind the enemy of what true divine intervention is.

The Warframe team debuted footage of the new vertical mission type, Ascension. Escape the bottom layer of an enemy base by hijacking an enormous elevator while fighting off waves of opponents and stealing power cells to keep the lift rising. Acting as an epilogue to the Quest’s story with a focus on the Ascension mission, the new Clan Operation: Belly of the Beast sends players back into the enemy base’s depths. Gather together clan-mates to accomplish objectives and thwart the Corpus faction’s latest experiments, unlocking new stylish energy aura Ephemeras once the community goals are met.

Ahead of TennoCon 2024, the third entry in the Heirloom line of cosmetics was teased for Warframe Ember and set to launch on July 20; alongside details for marketplace pricing changes, with the fourth Heirloom skin to be revealed at the show itself. Jade Shadows also brings a deluxe skin for Warframe Yareli as well as various quality of life improvements around Necramech acquisition, enemy power scaling, UI fashion recommendations, among others.

TennoCon 2024’s full two-day schedule was also fully detailed. Day One promises a 1999-themed TennoVIP celebration with guest DJ iHearCanvas, karaoke, and more.
