Our resident Waframe expert Adrian Haas is back at it with a look at the latest Prime frame Chroma. Though it's not one that he has spent much time with, Chroma's abilities are more functional than essential and without a re-work, Chroma Prime is pretty to look at but not much more.

The 36th Warframe to join the ranks of pilot-able frames that Tenno can take out into battle is about to grow this week on PC with the arrival of Revenant. A rather brooding, glowing hunk of space ninja metal that has been "afflicted by Sentient energy", and apparently "rises from the Plains to prey on the weak and unwilling". Trailer and ability breakdown after the jump!
ENTHRALL Convert a target into a zealous thrall. Thralls turn on their allies and enthrall through damage. On death, they disintegrate into a damaging pillar of energy. The thrall horde remains under Revenant's spell until this Ability runs out.
MESMER SKIN Become enveloped in Sentient energy, which redirects damage and stuns all those who dare attack. Stunned enemies can be Enthralled at no energy cost.
REAVE Dash through enemies as a wall of Sentient energy, leeching shields and health from any encountered, enhanced for thralls.
DANSE MACABRE Erupt with a multitude of Eidolon energy beams and sweep a circle of death around Revenant. Incoming damage is redirected to the beams. Hold fire to boost range and damage, while also increasing energy consumption. Thralls killed by this leave overshield pickups.
The abilities and play style look and sound interesting with the ability to enthrall enemies plus dash through them with a wall of Sentient energy to regain shields and health. The arrival of The Revenant also comes alongside a new weapon Phantasma that can "Irradiate enemies with a continuous stream of deadly plasma". The Revenant update is listed as "coming soon" for those that Warframe on PS4 or Xbox One.

Still in development and under a working title, ahead of this weekend's annual Warframe convention TennoCo developer Digital Extremes was unsure if it was ready to debut the ambitious new co-op mode - Codename: Railjack. Thank the Tenno gods they pulled it off because it looks incredible. Go from land to ship, launch into orbit, and then fight across the stars and board an enemy freighter - seamlessly.
Basically, you need to check this out.
As with all things Warframe it will be a free update that plays into the new open world expansion coming later this year set on Venus called Fortuna. Being able to not only pilot your ship but also man turrets and exit for some space-dog-fighting, it brings a dream that many of us have had had at one stage or another into an already feature-packed and epic sci-fi action-RPG. Also, Warframe first came out in 2013 - so that this is even possible on the current game engine is remarkable. This is the sort of footage you'd expect to see alongside a Warframe 2 announcement.
Warframe is currently free-to-play on PC, Xbox One, PS4, and coming soon to Nintendo Switch.

In that by changing all menu navigation, including frame customisation and foundry stuff, to rely almost entirely on a Virtual Mouse - well, seasoned players found themselves wrestling with a much slower system. And getting frustrated. One such, player, Our very own Adrian Haas - who has put together a piece on the changes, and well, why they don't work. Yet.
And that's yet because the developmes have already hot-fixed and re-added a few key things - like shortcut buttons. You know, the essentials.
In some areas of the game the new control scheme has become slow and painful to use. And it's especially unintuitive when it comes to modding weapons and frames. In the previous iteration of this interface you would simply click on a mod, then click the slot where you wanted it placed. Now you have to drag the cursor with the left stick to your mod, then hold A and simultaneously drag it to it's desired slot for placement. Talk about awkward. It feels like the idea came from that one person, who obviously doesn’t exist, that pauses a heated game of StarCraft to plug in an Xbox One controller so he can select units and micromanage ability use with an analogue stick and a couple of buttons.

On PC, with consoles to follow at a later date. Warframe players will be well aware that the The Second Dream and The War Within quest-lines found in Warframe offered up some of the most richly detailed stories found in the universe. Also, they know that thanks to Chains of Harrow, and the Apostasy Prologue, things were left a little up in the air.
With the fate of a key character still hanging in the balance. Launching this month, the following teaser does well to set the scene while paying tribute some of the most dedicated players.
Also, be sure to head to the official site for to enter promo code "OLDFRIEND" to get a free Orokin Tea Set Decoration for your Orbiter and a 3-Day Affinity Booster.

Zephyr Prime is the latest Prime warframe to be released and as with most Prime variants boasts enhanced stats; higher armor, a larger energy pool and (slightly) faster sprint speed. Plus, some additional mod possibilities. The Prime release follows a recent rework of Zephyr's abilities too.
Like the impressive visual spectacle that is Tornado.

At AusGamers we only recently got into Warframe, and we're glad we did. As fans of shooters, third-person combat, action-RPGs, and all-things sci-fi it's the perfect go-to game. And as a follow-up to the Earth-based open world expansion Plains of Eidolon that was released in 2017, the team is hard at work on a new open-world expansion set on Venus.
And just like the Plains of Eidolon environment the look and feel of the terrain will be completely new. With this new rendition of Venus set to showcase a stylish terraformed version of the planet. Early concept art looks, well, amazing.
Apparently that third image is an actual screenshot that has been painted over. Very cool.
In addition to this the stream covered a wide-range of topics from new capture tools, a sneak peak at Hydroid Prime, Octavia Deluxe (swoon), plus a bunch of topics near and dear to the community. Head here for a breakdown of the latest Warframe Devstream - or watch it right here!

Warframe has been around for a few years now, and the fast-paced third person online action title has only grown from strength to strength during that time. So much so that as a free-to-play game it offers an almost embarrassment of gameplay riches. Especially for anyone who's after deep and rewarding action-RPG set in an expansive and detailed sci-fi world.
And so we bring you 10 reasons that you should be playing. Where Tenno in the headline represents the race of ancient warriors and who you are in Warframe. Also, Tenno is a play on the number 10. Which is one less than 11. Reasons to play Warframe that is.
