Developer Digital Extremes has launched Nightwave, Warframe’s new series of pirate-radio-themed, Battle-Pass-style limited-time events – available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Switch, and PC.
Nightwave, which replaces Warframe’s previous Alerts system, takes the form of different story-driven Series, each playing out over the course of several weeks. Series are tied together by broadcasts from pirate radio station Nightwave, presented by Nora Night (“the eyes and ears of the Origin System”), and the first of these, The Wolf of Saturn, is out now.
By completing daily and weekly challenges – referred to as Acts – throughout a series, players can increase their standing with Nora and raise up the Reward Tiers. Each series will feature 30 tiers, and each tier unlocks limited-time rewards, including power items, exclusive cosmetics, or currency called Wolf Cred. It is, in other words, similar to the Battle Pass systems popularised by the likes of Fortnite and Rocket League, albeit free.
