Warframe | Lore in a Minute!

October 18, 2019

Long ago, humanity discovered The Void, an
extra dimensional realm. Studying the Void advanced science quickly. The Orokin Empire terraformed the Origin System, but after centuries of expansion, resources became scarce. So the Orokin sent self-replicating machines
to terraform the Tau System. The first colonists boarded the ship Zariman
10-0, headed to the new system but the void-jump failed. Presumed lost, the ship returned years later. Unfortunately, only the children survived,
plagued by explosive new powers. Thankfully, Orokin scientist Margulis created Somatic Pods to grant them control and pleasant dreams Meanwhile, the self-replicating machines returned
as The Sentients, seeking revenge on their creators. The Orokin were outmatched, so they weaponized
the children, now called the Tenno. Forced into Transference, the Tenno projected
into surrogate biomechanical armor called Warframes, drove back the Sentients and ended
the Old War. But the history of the Tenno has faded, the
Collapse of the Orokin Empire is an ancient mystery. Centuries later, new factions fight for Orokin
technology. The Grineer, descended from Orokin clones augment their deteriorating bodies to conquer the colonies. The Corpus, profit-mad scavengers hunt for
better technology. And the Infested mutate their enemies with
invasive Technocytes. You are one of the Tenno. Awakening in a pod, you’re surrounded by Grineer
soldiers hoping to dissect you. Good thing you’re gun-toting, sword-swinging
biomechanical death machine. Have fun!

    You really can't describe the lore of warframe in a single video. This was a good effort, however, so yeah.

    Didn't play second dream.. should not have watched. Ahhhhhh!

    Uh… Wow broke the golden rule of warframe (No spoilers) and did barely any research….

    Love how the story to this game is interesting as hell yet the game itself sucks.

    BioMechanical Death machine. yeah, Pretty much.

  • Reply Demogorgon White August 4, 2018 at 8:43 am

    Wow… that was so… on point. That is exactly all about lore that new player should know. Everything else are just details.

  • Reply Calvin Ye August 4, 2018 at 10:04 am

    Tennos are the ones who destroyed the Orokin Empire after the Sentient War.

  • Reply ARWINGx1 August 4, 2018 at 10:18 am

    1:07 honestly, I imagined that since we/the players have killed so many Grineers & Corpuses by now, their morale should've been low quite a while ago.

    nice animation, reasonably amusing, but you need to do a bit more digging to fully grasp the lore, its a lot deeper ands darker than this video leads you to believe, and you just made the first and last mistake you make when interacting with the WF community, you do NOT spoil the second dream UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES!!! (unless you provide more warning than the US missile defence grid)

  • Reply SgtKOnyx August 5, 2018 at 3:06 am

    Not only is a "spoiler alert" needed, you seem to have missed some information from The War Within. Also, some information in The Sacrifice kind of changes some of the perspectives.

    Score: 2/10
    -6 for late game quest spoilers
    -2 for possibly inaccurate, or at least incomplete information.

  • Reply Sinister Toaster August 5, 2018 at 7:56 pm

    Everyone's talking about how talking about Operators and the Second Dream is a huge spoiler, and they'd be right. About 2-3 years ago. We've come so far since then that DE actively talks about Operators whenever they want, and it's a widely known lore point. It's not that bad you guys, chill.

    Guys, nobody cares about the Tenno being children other than players who have been playing before the quest came out. It was only a big surprise because before story based quests everything was kind of a mystery. Really not a big deal for newer players, stop acting like Warframe is some long running franchise with deep lore and the Tenno being children is some huge plot twist.

  • Reply PewDiePie’s Chair August 7, 2018 at 3:46 am

    Is the only reason you made this video because you just noticed Warframe a month ago like all other media and youtubers?

    Makes sense seeing this came out a week ago….

    Great video tho!

  • Reply Audio Visual August 7, 2018 at 4:06 am

    People forgetting that the children part have been shown off as far back as the Lunaro trailer in 2016. Even a Sacrifice trailer had one sitting through almost the entire video.

    Ain’t a big surprise anymore.
