Today marks the revolution of a revolutionary game. Okay, so that might be a bit extreme, but the popular free-to-play Sci-Fi shooter Warframe has received a very major update today for PC: the Plains of Eidolon.
This update introduces a new concept to Warframe; the player will now be able to explore an open world area of the previously and very linear game. As the title implies, this place is called The Plains of Eidolon. Here, you will be able to explore a nine-kilometer area full of caves, camps, and missions. What better way to explore this new land than with new weapons? A new mission type will lead players to create new weaponry. Don't feel like combat? Just want to enjoy the sights? Then you'll love the newly added fishing and mining activities.
Though all of those activities will be available during the daytime. Come nightfall, the Eidolon emerges. The Eidolon is a massive beast in search of something, and you (and some friends) will have to find out what.
You can download Warframe and the Plains of Eidolon expansion via Steam's Marketplace now. This update is due to appear on console versions of the game in the future. Can't wait? Check out this 22-minute developer gameplay video.
