Independent developer and publisher Digital Extremes have released a new update for the PS4 and Xbox One versions their free-to-play third person action game, Warframe. Released last month on PC, this update introduces a a new Warframe, a new quest, new weapons, new skins and more.
Octavia's Anthem has Warframe players journeying through an original quest in search of the musically enchanted Octavia Warframe. Along with Octavia comes the introduction of a simple-to-use musical instrument, the Mandachord, which enables players to compose original songs and synchronize them to their weapons to rhythmically dominate the enemy. Music isn't just a tool of destruction in this update, however, as players can create musical arrangements in cooperation with other Tenno and trade songs. Its flexibility and ease-of-use has inspired throngs of PC influencers and YouTubers to create their own tunes and re-create pop tune favorites en masse.
Key features in the Octavia's Anthem update include:
- New Warframe: Force your foes to face the music with Lotus' newest warrior, Octavia. Octavia's abilities are powered by the Mandachord, a formidable tool used to mix Melody, Bass, and Percussion into a harmony of destruction. Create cooperatively devised songs with friends in dojos, or download other Tenno-created songs and re-experience Octavia from a different perspective.
- New Captura Feature: Don your best Fashion Frame, then capture and edit the ultimate image with a variety of filters, graphics and editing tools.
- New Quest: The Octavia's Anthem Quest will have you drawn into the Relay by the vast consciousness Cephalon Suda, whose strange, disoriented behavior warrants investigation.
