Digital Extremes has discharged a replacement update for Warframe. According to the press release, The Old Blood introduces the Kuva Lich and a brand-new Nemesis-like game system.
It also debuts the 42nd Warframe, the insatiable Grendel. Moreover, this patch ties in a meaty upgrade to Melee Combat, with hundreds of buffed/re-balanced weapons, mid-air melee attacks (juggles), improved combos, and more.
It also reworks two classic Warframes, Ember and Vauban, for modern audiences. Plus, you get to meet the 42nd Warframe, the insatiable Grendel. We got more details for you here along with the trailer, as you can download the update right now and get in on the game.
Going into more detail, the much-anticipated debut of the Kuva Lich challenges veteran players with a new Nemesis-like game system.
On the other hand, Tenno will experience substantial upgrades to the melee combat system with “Melee Changes: Phase 2”. The overhaul streamlines and deepens Warframe’s lightning-fast melee combat.
At the same time, it bolsters hundreds of weapons with substantial buffs and re-balanced stats to empower more brutal, devastating close quarter combat.
These upgrades also feature a Combo System that makes initiating, chaining and ending combos seamless and intuitive. They also add new Heavy Attacks to lift, juggle and pummel enemies in the air.
“As players encounter and re-encounter their evolving nemesis, the Kuva Lich amasses resources, territory, and allies that will alter their next encounter, whether planetside or – when Empyrean launches – aboard a deep space warship.”
In addition to the Kuva Lich, The Old Blood update also introduces Grendel as the 42nd Warframe.
Kuva Liches are special, high-level enemies they hunt players. You can kill them, however, they’re going to solely come stronger and with new talents supported but it had been that you simply iced them last time.
Hence the whole “Lich” thing. Although the developer has said you can permanently end them with the Paragon (more on that further down) to steal their weapon.
