What is The New War?

The name “The New War” refers to both the upcoming expansion and the name for the current story arc. This war starts as the Lotus, the leader of the Tenno faction, disappears after an Orokin called Ballas, a scientist from the old Orokin Era, shows up mysteriously alive and invites her to go with him.

After The Lotus apparently deserts with this malicious Orokin, you find, fight, and fatally wound him on the quest “The Sacrifice”, only to discover that the Lotus reverted to her old Sentient form, Natah, and she escapes with Ballas.

Warframe: The New War releases on December 15 on Steam PC, Epic Games Store, PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®5, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. To keep up with the latest updates, be sure to follow Warframe on Twitch, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
