Digital Extremes has announced that Warframe's new update called Chains of Harrow will be available today on PC and soon will be released on PS4 and Xbox One. They also proudly boasted over 30 million registered users across all platforms.
The update in question will add new content including a new quest and a new character that will base his skills on the shields, with the possibility of enhancing allies temporarily. You may think of the Harrow as a support character.
Finally, a graphical update of all Earth maps will be implemented, with a very effective restyling, especially with regards to vegetation and lighting.
Play as HARROW: Harness the power of the Void to bolster allies’ defenses and amplify their lethality with Lotus’ newest Warrior, Harrow, using the four deadly abilities listed below:
Condemn – Cast a wave of energy that chains them where they stand. Each enemy held reinforces Harrow’s shields.
Penance – Sacrifice shields to boost reload, and fire rate while converting damage inflicted on enemies into health for Harrow and nearby allies.
Thurible – Channel Harrow’s energy into the Thurible to generate a buff. The more energy channeled, the longer the buff will last. Once finished, kill enemies to bestow nearby allies with bursts of energy. Headshots produce extra energy.
Covenant – Protect nearby allies with an energy force that absorbs all damage and converts it to a Critical Chance bonus for all those under the Covenant. Headshots are amplified even further.
CHAINS OF HARROW Quest: A disturbing transmission from Red Veil’s spiritual medium leads to an abandoned Steel Meridian vessel adrift on the outskirts of Earth. Inside, strange whispers echo throughout the lifeless vessel. What force unleashed this evil and how can it be stopped? (The Chains of Harrow Quest will appear in the Codex for those who have completed The War Within and unlocked Mot in the Void.)
Earth Remastered: Experience Earth like never before with the beautifully remastered Earth environments. Clash with Grineer amidst luscious vegetation and envelope your Warframe in the naturalistic lighting and a remastered soundscape. Visit any of the Earth Terrain Missions to experience this stunning overhaul.
New GRINEER CHEM STRIKE - NOX Enemy: This noxious new enemy is part of the Elite Chem Strike Unit. Nox wields a toxin-filled heavy gun that shoots blobs of toxic goo that attach themselves to targets before exploding. Take out these gruesome enemies by shooting their glass helmets and exposing their deteriorating skin. Beware of their final moments, as they explode into a lethal cloud.
