Update 11: Valkyr Unleashed is now available for Warframe on PS4
While I really enjoyed my time with the f2p PS4 launch title Warframe when I reviewed it a couple of weeks ago, one of my complaints was that since its release a major update came out for the PC version putting the PS4 version a step behind. The developer Digital Extremes stated that they wanted to keep both versions on par with each other update wise, but with past experiences (i.e. Awesomenauts, Dungeon Defenders) I was a little worried that they would run into problems doing so.
But it seems PS4 players didn’t have to wait that long at all since Update 11, titled Valkyr Unleashed, is now available for players to enjoy. The update brings new content to experience, new gameplay mechanics, updates to the damage model, and more. You can check out the full list of additions below:
Update 11: VALKYR UNLEASHED, available December 12th on PlayStation®4, is loaded with new environments, Warframes, weapons, and more – including the introduction of the new Berserker Warframe – Valkyr. We have listened to the Warframe community at large and implemented tons of their feedback into this update. IT’S HUGE! Below are the highlights of what’s new in this update.
