The Duviri Paradox is Warframe’s crazy new open-world expansion

Digital Extremes has released the reality-bending first trailer for Warframe's third open-world expansion, The Duviri Paradox.

Warframe Duviri Paradox

There’s a lot of crazy stuff coming to Warframe over the coming months, from new frames to an expansion where you get to control a Railjack battleship, but nothing beats the insane first trailer for Warframe’s third open-world expansion – whose title is now known as The Duviri Paradox.

The next big open-world DLC addition for Warframe has been teased for some time, mostly with concept art of a masked man in a long blue cape on a disintegrating throne. The expansion was also previously known as Planes of Duviri, but otherwise developer Digital Extremes had not released any information on it. Now at last, at TennoCon 2019, the developer has given Warframe fans the first look at The Duviri Paradox expansion – and we’re just as confused as we were before.

The first teaser trailer for Duviri Paradox – which is almost entirely in black and white, other than a few splashes of colour- and shows a man exploring a twisted and broken landscape full of weird creatures and twisted buildings. The man is wearing the same mask seen in the concept art, and is supposed to be one of the player-controlled Warframe Operators – except now grown up to be an adult.

The masked man is also being hunted by a figure on a metal horse, and he only gets the better of the hunter thanks to a dream – which shows him the location of a nearby gun. The man, now riding the horse, heads towards the structure seen earlier. We’re presuming this is our first look at the Planes of Duviri itself, and it looks to be quite a mind-messing experience.

The Duviri Paradox is Warframe’s third open-world expansion, following The Plains of Eidolon and Fortuna. Digital Extremes describes the expansion as a “reality-bending journey of the surreal”, which sounds promising – and that it features an “ominous new environment where Operators have grown up to become mature adults.” Intriguing.

There’s currently no release date for The Duviri Paradox expansion. We’ve got more coming from TennoCon soon, including details of the actual next expansion for Warframe – Empyrean, which introduces space vessels to the game. Now’s a great time to be a Warframe fan, for sure.
