It didn't take long for Digital Extremes to bring the Old Blood update to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, although Switch owners will have to wait a bit longer. The update brings your future nemesis, the Kuva Lich, the Grendel frame and more.
Now, the update has been out on PC for about two weeks, but the wait should be worth it as Digital Extremes introduced the sort of an enemy you won't be shaking off quickly.
As the story goes, the most worthy among the Grineer soldiers have received the power of Kuva, and once you've dealt with a Kuva-spiked Grineer - it will be reborn as your personal nemesis.
"Your Lich will claim territory in the Origin System, using their influence to build a following of loyal Thralls. Track these lesser beings down and gather intel on the Lich's whereabouts", the dev wrote. Your squadmates can help, but you and you alone are the only one that can kill it, and others can replace it once it's dead as well.
What you see below is the devouring new frame called Grendel, although Digital Extremes' version seems a bit hungrier than Beowulf's one they most likely borrowed the name from.
Warframe's new frame is apparently a noble spirit, but with a rich appetite and each consumed enemy grants him bonus armour. Grendel can keep eating more, but each foe in his belly consumes energy, and he can vomit them as projectiles covered in toxic bile.
Grendel can consume a stored enemy to nourish nearby squad members with radial buffs, while Pulverize lets him curl into a ball and send enemies flying.
Digital Extremes continued with their melee changes and all melee weapons now sport heavy attacks. It's the standard formula - they're slower but hit harder, and you can pull off melee in mid-air and even juggle opponents with some attacks.
