Warframe has received a brand new major update today on the PS4 and Xbox One. Internally, this updated version is 23.5.0 and while it is currently live now on the PS4, it has also been confirmed for the Xbox One so expect to see it go live there as well.
The last update for Warframe was for version 1.61 on the PS4. This new patch will update the game to version 1.62 and it is basically a full game download that aims to reduce the size from 48 GB to 25.5 GB. This patch is essentially downloading the whole game in a compressed format.
The patch notes for update version 23.5.0 can be seen in full from here. It is titled as Mask of the Revenant update on consoles and the developers have called it a ‘remaster’ for the game.
NEW WARFRAME: REVENANT
Introducing the 36th Warframe, Revenant! Afflicted by Sentient energy, Revenant rises from the shadows to prey on the weak and unwilling.
PASSIVE: Shield depletion smashes nearby enemies with a knockdown shockwave.
Convert a target into a zealous thrall. Thralls turn on their allies and enthrall through damage. On death, they disintegrate into a damaging pillar of energy. The thrall horde remains under Revenants spell until this ability runs out.
Become enveloped in Sentient energy, which redirects damage and stuns all those who dare attack. Stunned enemies can be Enthralled at no energy cost.
Dash through enemies as a wall of Sentient energy, leeching shields and health from any encountered, enhanced for thralls.
Erupt with a multitude of Eidolon energy beams and sweep a circle of death around Revenant. Incoming damage is redirected to the beams. Hold fire to boost range and damage, while also increasing energy consumption.
Damage type can adapt to select defenses. Thralls killed by this leave overshield pickups.*
*To invoke a more Sentient theme with Revenant, the damage output of the Danse Macabre can adapt to certain enemy defenses as seen by Sentients in the wild!
3 special adaptations exist for the damage types of Danse Macabre:
Striking Armor will adapt Danse Macabre into Corrosive Damage.
Striking Shields will adapt Danse Macabre into Magnetic Damage.
Striking Infested Flesh will adapt Danse Macabre into Gas Damage.
This will be at a base 20% Status Chance, amplified by holding the default “fire weapon” trigger.
Irradiate enemies with a continuous stream of deadly plasma. Charging secondary fire releases a glob of plasma that erupts with homing bomblets on impact.
A uniquely-style alternate helmet for Revenant.
Make Revenant whole with his signature armor.

The signature Kavat Armor of Revenant.
