LONDON, ONTARIO, CA – April 9, 2020 – Canadian developer and publisher Digital Extremes will bring new meaning to the word ‘war’ with Warframe® Operation Scarlet Spear, available today on PlayStation®4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch™. In the scramble to counter the Sentients’ first offensive wave of the New War, players can now form plans together in the new Operation Room before launching expanded cooperative land and space battles. Only with the newly implemented Operation Link (formerly ‘Squad Link’), will Tenno have a fighting chance to stave off Sentient incursions in this five-week event, starting today, April 9, and ending Thursday, May 14.

Console players who’ve waited for Operation Scarlet Spear to arrive on their platforms will see their patience rewarded. Numerous improvements to the PC build will be fully implemented to consoles. Those changes include:

  • An all-new five-week Operation (timed event) specific to console players starts today

  • Ground Assault and Murex Raid scoring changes (increases over original scoring) will go live at launch today

  • Rare and Legendary Arcanes will be available in Little Duck’s store in the Flotillas on launch

  • Fixes and improvements galore! See our Forums for special details:

Repelling Sentient Attacks in the Veil Proxima

Operation Scarlet Spear’s new cinematic delves into uncharted narrative territory with the Sentient threat deploying forces across the Origin System. Following the cinematic cliff-hangar from 2019’s Empyrean, the first wave of Sentient scouts have breached the Veil Proxima using Ramsled ships to disrupt Tenno momentum. Honing in on Railjack ships, the invaders send forth boarding parties, including Anu Mantalysts and Anu Interference Drones, to disrupt and disable systems, from Side Turrets to Battle Avionics to Speed Boosting, testing Tenno resilience.

It’s up to the Tenno to rally together and repel these early attacks. Players can now formulate plans in a new 50-person Relay (the new Operation Room) and then embark on four-player missions (“Operations”) utilizing cooperative ground and Railjack attacks (the new Operation Link feature) to achieve combined community goals. Each successful Operation builds progress that adds to the overall community goal, driving back enemy forces before the invasion engulfs the entire Origin System. Check for finer details.
