Warframe’s Third Open World, Heart of Deimos, to Be Released on August 25
Warframe’s third open world, Heart of Deimos, will be added to the game on all platforms on August 25, 2020, and brings with it a brand new way to customize your Warframe in the Helminth Chrysalis System, Necromechs, and much more.Revealed at TennoCon 2020, Deimos’ open world features a hauntingly-beautiful landscape that has been overrun by Infested enemies, the dark Entrati, and more “sights unseen in ever-changing underground cave networks.”
Players will also be able to “harness the power of the Void” with the community-designed Xaku, which also happens to be the second-ever Warframe to be “designed by the Tenno.”
Watch the 30-minute demo for Heart of Deimos.

Heart of Deimos will add more than just new Warframes, as players will be able to utilize new Necromechs that can be used in every open-world zone. These Necromechs are slower than a Warframe, but have a ton of firepower and defense.
One of the bigger additions is the Hemlinth Chrysalis System, which allows players to feed the Helminth resources to unlock a new suite of abilities. The Helminth can also consume a whole Warframe to extract an ability to infuse into another.
The Heart of Deimos will also bring with it a new player experience that offers a better tutorial and introduction into the world of Warframe.As reported by Polygon, Deimos, which is the second moon of Mars, is smaller but more dense than Orb Vallis and Plains of Eidolon’s open zones. There is also no standard day night cycle, yet “two giant worms are battling back and forth for dominance. One worm, a striking orange fellow, signifies that waves of Infested will attack. But each day, the blue worm will triumph, and the planet will become a more peaceful place for a time.”
Warframe, which made our list of the Top 10 Free-to-Play Games on Steam, will be released on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, although no release date has been given.
