LONDON, ONTARIO, CA – June 9, 2020 – Like Chains of Harrow and The Jovian Concord before it, Canadian developer and publisher Digital Extremes has dug deep into its seven-year Warframe® content trove to re-imagine the Corpus faction’s levels in The Deadlock Protocol. Coming to PC this week, The Deadlock Protocol introduces the Corpus Faction’s dramatic origin story through richly re-crafted environments that integrate iconic new visuals and gameplay elements to reinforce the money-worshipping cult’s rise to power.

Boss Fight Enhanced, Parkour Perfect
The first playable tileset in Warframe, nearly every aspect of the Corpus’ early environment has been upgraded, starting with gameplay. Fresh challenges lie in wait with the renewed Jackal boss, a fight sequence now extended across multiple levels that dares players to rethink tactics against this aggressively revamped boss. The new Granum Crowns bring a spendable currency that opens up a wild variety of gameplay options, including being transported to a surprising new Corpus nether-realm. And now nearly every wall, corridor, and room support intense parkour mobility.
Corpus Origins Revealed
The Deadlock Protocol weaves larger-scale story implications into the modern Warframe narrative. Players must investigate the Corpus Faction’s desperate ploy to break their board’s political in-fighting. Through combat and discovery, Tenno will learn a small Corpus sub-faction has begun a devious plan to resurrect the faction’s founder, a revival posing an alarming new threat to the Origin System’s balance. Determined to strengthen their armada and bolster a growing space fleet against the Sentients and the Tenno, the Corpus’ plans for unbridled power must be put to an end. Do you have what it takes to confront the new Corpus threat, Tenno?
Introducing Protea, the 43rd Warframe
Led by the powerful Ability to stop enemies in their tracks by rewinding time, Protea’s array of offensive and defensive grenades, drones, and turrets brings a battle tactician’s edge to the fight. Players can investigate her origin story as the former Corpus head bodyguard in her own unique Quest, and uncover a quiver of technologically advanced weapons from the new Corpus Armor Set and Primary Rifle to the Gunblade Melee, new Kitguns throughout the update.
