Developer Digital Extremes have announced a new expansion for Warframe. Plains of Eidolon, unveiled at Tennocon 2017, is set to be a massive expansion for the hit MMORPG. Players can now fight, journey and fly through the open Landscapes – Warframe‘s first Open Zone – of Planet Earth in their own time, in their own way.

The new trailer for Plains of Eidolon has also been released, which you can see below. Plains of Eidolon was revealed for the first time during TennoCon 2017, the second annual sold-out Warframe convention in Canada. A new story is also set to be told in the new city of Cetus, according to the developers.

The city is expected to add a new sense of grandeur to the game. Throughout the expansion, the world is set to be “more alive than ever,” according to Digital Extremes. This is in contrast to before, where players were in a more closed off environment.

In Plains of the Eidolon, players will see a natural landscape with the freedom to explore it their way.

With the first introduction of Landscapes in WarframePlains of Eidolon enables players to discover a bustling town full of NPCs. These NPCs have their own stories to tell, motives, quirks, and quests to offer. In this massive new landscape, players are challenged to get new a Warframe and weapons. Plains of the Eidolon offers a sense of discovery, variety, and mystery that mixes several different environments and tones to create a deep sense of place.

Steve Sinclair, creative director behind the game, spoke about the expansion, saying:

“For veteran players, we’re always trying to give them a living, evolving game. Landscapes is a great example of how we do that. If you bounced off Warframe a while ago, this is a very different feel for the game that warrants a second look. We can’t wait to see how people react to this!”

Digital Extremes have also said that adding landscapes is something they’ve been working on a while.

The developers have also said that this is a huge leap for the game. One of the new features in the game is set to be a “new kind” of mission. In addition to discovering and exploring, players will engage in an assortment of missions to find and assemble new Warframes and weapons, items and more. Expect to strap on Archwing for air travel and battle, and experiment with customizing and modding like never before.

Those who attended Tennocon 2017 also received the first ever comic book based on the game, among a number of other bonuses for attending. The comic was written by Matt Hawkins and Ryan Cady and published by Top Cow Comics. The convention also included guest panels and developer workshops. This was the second year running for Tennocon. Just like last year, this years convention sold out within weeks.

Additionally, a portion of the event’s ticket sales go to this year’s charitable partner, Covenant House Toronto. Covenant House Toronto provides unparalleled community services ranging from education and mental health and substance abuse counseling, to healthcare, employment assistance, job and life skill training, and aftercare work for at-risk and homeless youth.

Plains of Eidolon is currently available for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. You can check out the trailer for the expansion below. You can find out more about the expansion here.
