Warframe’s War Within update adds new mission, sealife

Warframe [official site], the free-to-play co-op third-person shooter-o-stabber where you play as some sort of robotic sealife, has launched another big update. ‘The War Within‘ has added a new cinematic quest, new enemies, new weapons, a new type of mission, new tilesets, and other odds and ends.
