Original Story Follows:
Warframe's first developer stream of 2021 wrapped up over the weekend, with Digital Extremes outlining some of their plans for the year ahead.
The game's upcoming Update 30 will be known as 'Call of Tempestarii', and will introduce a new lore-filled quest and, of course, a fresh Warframe for players to earn.
Warframe's Call of the Tempestarii Update Revealed
The update is slated to launch in March and will introduce new elements to the game's Railjack systems that allow players to dogfight amongst huge ships.
A new Corpus Railjack, Void Storms and more will be tied into the mech combat introduced in Operation: Oprhix Venom.
Players can also expect Octavia Prime as the first Prime Access Warframe of the year, alongside Quality of Life improvements aimed at the Dojo.
Expect a new Zephyr Deluxe bundle, too, with new landing craft and animations.
As with any Warframe update, the big addition is just as much the new 'Frame as much as it is the content, and the new Sevagoth doesn't disappoint.

The new Warframe offers a trio of powers, as well as the unique ability to transform into a "Reaper" form when its "Wraith" meter is full.
As of today (February 1st), fans will find Nightwave: Intermission 3 content in-game, with seasonal events Star Days and Lunar New Year following in February.
It's clear from this wealth of updates that Warframe isn't going anywhere – and that's a good thing.
As we noted in our review of the impressive PS5 version, the game has never been better.
"If you’ve never played Warframe and are looking for an opportunity to jump in, then the PS5 version provides an excellent opportunity to do just that," we said.
"It’s beautiful, complex, and offers a free-to-play business model that offers content in spades without prompting you for your bank details on a regular basis."
