In Warframe you will master the Warframe armor as the enigmatic Tenno, a race of ancient warriors wielding blade and gun, who are awakened from centuries of cryo-sleep by a mysterious guide, the Lotus, to restore order throughout the Solar System. Tenno will experiment with Warframe’s blisteringly fast Parkour movement system, giving them the ability to Wall-Dash up walls, Bullet Jump across vast terrain and Dive-Kick into a teeming crowd of Grineer, among other moves. Eager Tenno will lose countless hours acquiring a variety of Warframes (36 and counting) to best suit their play style, as well as new weapons and gear, crafting specialized weapons and customizing their Warframe, weapons, ships and looks to make the ultimate Fashion Frame statement!
