Developer Digital Extremes has recently released an update of their free-to-play cooperative shooter game, Warframe. The patch, dubbed Update 14: The Mad Cephalon, is a big update packed with new quests, weapons, companions, and a brand new Warframe profile.
The update will feature a brand new user interface. The Quest will guide new players to the game, providing essential information on gameplay, modes, guns, and menus. Players can now board their own personal spaceship, The Liset, where they can access major systems, menus and other components.
One interesting new feature is that players can now raise their own Kubrow, by collecting the egg and incubating it in the Genetic Foundry. Each Kubrow will have its own personality and set of skills. You can make them more effective in combat by taking care of them like a pet and equipping them with link mods.
The coolest?part of this patch is definitely the addition of the new Warframe profile, Mirage. She is the master of illusion, using her environment to manipulate the enemies around her. Watch her flashy moves in this cool video:
The patch will include a new PvP game mode that will replace the existing Solar Rails conflict game mode. You can choose which Clan or Alliance you want to side with and play the role of an attacker or defender on the mission, with up to four human players per side.
In addition, brand new weapons such as the Akzani and Silva and Aegis will be made available.
Here is the rest of the update log:
NEW USER EXPERIENCE ? A meaningful Quest walks new players through Warframe, providing essential information on gameplay, lore, game modes and menus.

Quest, major systems, menus, and components can be accessed through devices aboard the ship!
KUBROWS ? A new Quest unlocks a Genetic Foundry used for breeding biological specimens on your ship! Breed a Kubrow by collecting a Kubrow egg and incubating it in the Genetic Foundry.

NEW WARFRAME ? A master of illusion, Mirage confounds the enemy in a spectacle of style and power. Mirage ‘s powers include:
Hall of Mirrors – Mirage creates an entourage of doppelgangers to distract and confuse the enemy.
Sleight of Hand – A natural prankster, Mirage booby-traps nearby objects.
Eclipse – Standing in light, Mirage becomes the main attraction, dealing heavy damage — while the shadows make Mirage difficult to track and even harder to hurt.
