Digital Extremes saved one last gift to sneak under the tree of Warframe fans this festive season as the independent developer announced a new free update for the PC version of the game, The Glast Gambit.

The Glast Gambit update is available to download for free on the PC version beginning today and includes a vast array of exciting new content including new quests, new weapons, and a brand new Warframe.

  • NEW WARFRAME: Plague your enemies with the Infested powers of Lotus’ newest warrior, Nidus. Spread the Infestation by spawning maggots that seek nearby enemies, manifest plagued tendrils that will immobilize foes, and redistribute the damage you take to infected victims.
  • NEW QUEST: Nef Anyo has stolen the children of the Mycona Colony, and the Tenno must challenge Nef in The Index and beat him at his own game.
  • NEW WEAPONS: Handle new Weapons and Customizations with care as they have been corrupted by the Infestation:
  • HEMA – Wield this symbiotic burst-rifle designed to leech health to forge its ammo, and then restore health with each headshot.
  • HIRUDO – Rip into the enemy with fists of razor sharp cartilage. Steals health with each critical hit.
  • RIVEN MODS: Expand your strength by wielding new Riven Mods for Secondary Weapons — but know that you must prove yourself before their powers are revealed.
  • THORAC SYANDANA: Drape yourself with the new sinuous spine of Infested anatomy.
