They also revealed a new teaser trailer for Protea Prime:

There was no narration in this trailer but it will come in the full trailer before she arrives on May 1st. For players unfamiliar with the lore, you can expect to hear Parvos Granum, instead of Ballas in this trailer. They also showed off Velox and Okina Prime in game and we now know their stats. Velox will have more status chance over its original with the same ammo efficiency passive. With Okina having a more critical stat focus. Also, her idle animation included her reading Noctua, Dante’s signature weapon. So, there may be more lore than meets the eye in her trailer.

Backshot of Jade

She will come with three signature weapons. The Evensong bow, Cantare throwing Kunai, and Harmony scythe. The idea behind her weapons seems to be an inversion of what the Stalker has. They did show the Cantare and Harmony in game, Cantare is a weapon with innate blast damage with a mix of status and critical focus. With Harmony being fully critical focused. She will also come with an alternate helmet, similar to recent warframe releases.


There will be a Yareli deluxe skin coming in this update, and a new ship skin themed after Stalker’s signature ship, “Terror”.
