Independent Canadian developer and publisher Digital Extremes is issuing in spring today with Beasts of the Sanctuary, available today for PlayStation®4 and Xbox One. Highlighted by the multifaceted Khora, the first new Warframe of 2018, and Sanctuary Onslaught, a totally new team-based, survival-style mode, Beasts of the Sanctuary challenges players to find the perfect balance of speed, shooting and style, all for free. Jump into the fray now to participate in the time-limited Plague Star Event, starting today, May 10 and ending Tuesday, May 22nd.
The stylistically armor-clad Khora offers a versatile combination of offensive and defensive capabilities starting with a metallic whip that strikes from a distance and follows up with a metallic Kavat (cat pet) that quickly engulfs enemies in a whirlwind of pain. The new Sanctuary Onslaught mode, where Khora can be found, enables solo players, or a squad of up to four, to quickly dash through timed portals while blasting waves of increasingly powerful enemies. Both Khora and Sanctuary Onslaught together offer fresh new ways for Tenno to harness Warframe’s cooperative chaos, and both are free with the Beasts of the Sanctuary.
Khora’s Abilities include:
- Whipclaw: Send enemies reeling with a deafening whipcrack.
- Ensnare: Bind a hapless target in living metal, entangling others who stray too close. Disperse the trap with a crack of the whip.
- Venari: Summon a ferocious, gleaming Kavat. Use again to cycle between Attack, Protect, and Heal postures.
- Strangledome: Weave a dome of living chain that ensnares and strangles any enemy within, and any foolish enough to approach.
Sanctuary Onslaught challenges players to work together to survive endless waves of Warframe enemies standing in their way of escaping through the next portal. Players must quickly slay enemies en masse while proceeding through uniquely crafted environments to random portals — and then do it all again, all against the clock!
