Warframe version 1.96 for PS4 (Update 30) is now available for players. According to the official Warframe update 1.96 patch notes, the latest added new features and resolves various issues related to crashing, network connection, and more. Additionally, Warframe 1.96 also includes performance and stability improvements.
Previously, a big update was released which added Operation: Scarlet Spear event and a long list of quality of life improvements. Apart from this, the last update also included various tweaks and improvements.
Unfortunately, since the last update, many players were experiencing a number of issues when trying to play. Today’s Warframe 1.96 is expected to fix all these issues.
NEW QUEST: CALL OF THE TEMPESTARII
Our first Warframe Railjack quest is here! ‘Call of the Tempestarii’ is a Solo quest that brings you into the Proxima regions with a bang. Journey into Corpus territory and answer the Call of the Tempestarii. Keen Tenno will perhaps get a hint to what comes next once the Quest is completed…
Void Storms gather in Corpus lanes…could a mysterious vessel somehow be the case? Board your Railjack and investigate the call.
The prerequisites to access the Call of the Tempestarii Quest are:
Own a Railjack
Deadlock Protocol Quest complete
We strongly encourage turning your Audio options (especially Music) to the max for the best Quest experience! If you are hard of hearing, subtitles will guide you.
If you purchase Sevagoth with Platinum, you will receive a Riven Mod as a Quest Reward in addition to the Sevagoth Blueprint and some other secret goodies. Please note upon Quest completion, Simaris will have Sevagoth’s Blueprint for those who wish to build duplicates for Helminth, etc.
NEW RAILJACK GAMEMODE: VOID STORMS
A storm’s a brewin’, Tenno. But where there’s risk, there’s Ghostly reward! Void Storms have been detected rolling through the Proxima. Supercharged with Void energy, boarding parties and Point of Interest enemies caught in these conditions are subject to Void Fissures – perfect for Void Relic opening! As the storm brews outside, brace yourself for Void Sinks on board your Railjack. These Void Sinks can deal damage to your Warframe if touched – shoot them to destroy!
Bring your Railjack Crew or your squad to open Relics, earn Intrinsics, and grofit with rewards! On top of your earned Relic reward, Void Storms offer their own goodies upon completion. May the Void be ever in your favor!
Void Storm missions can be selected in both the Railjack Star Chart and the Void Fissure tab of the World State Window.
Railjack Proximas and their corresponding Relics:
Earth Proxima: Lith Relics: Play here to open Lith Relics and earn their Rewards!

How do Void Storm rewards work?
Void Storm missions are directly similar to Void Fissure missions, where you’re tasked with completing the objective while also collecting enough Reactant.
All on-foot enemies are subject to becoming Corrupted from Void Fissures. Boarding parties, Point of Interest enemies, Crewship enemies, etc once Corrupted can all drop Reactant needed to open your Relic. Reactant is a shared pickup for Void Storms! Since Railjack requires Tenno to coordinate across multiple environments simultaneously, we felt that having shared Reactant pickups would help squads open Relics in a co-op friendly way.
NEW WARFRAME: SEVAGOTH
The storm-swept, Void-wandering Warframe has returned to harvest living souls. Send forth his Shadow to reap the life of the unwary.
On death, become Sevagoth’s Shadow and fight to resurrect him by collecting the souls needed to rebuild his tombstone.
Sevagoth’s Shadow flies outward ravaging enemies in his path. Survivors are damaged by Death’s Harvest over time. The souls of the dead fill the Death Well.
Plant a death seed in nearby targets to drain their lifeforce. Reap what has been sown to detonate afflicted enemies, dealing a percentage of their health as radial damage. The souls of the dead fill the Death Well.
Summon a radial pulse wave that ensnares and slows enemies, siphoning their lifeforce for the Death Well. Allies within the wave steal health with each attack.
When the Death Well fills, Sevagoth’s Shadow form is ready to be released. Tear the enemy asunder with a collection of melee-focused abilities.
Ghostly hands pull enemies into a flailing mass.
Dash through enemies and rip out their souls to heal Shadow.
Inflict nearby enemies with a harrowing condition.
Sevagoth and his Shadow become one.
Purchase in the ingame Market or earn Sevagoth Blueprint from the Call of Tempestarii Quest and his Components from Void Storm drop tables.
Sevagoth’s wrist-mounted sidearm fires a chilling slow-moving slab, guaranteed to slow enemies for easier marksmanship. Charge the shot to fire a punishing high-velocity, high critical chance slab that punches through barriers. Deals additional headshot damage in Sevagoth’s hands.
Purchase in the ingame Market or earn Epitaph Blueprint and Components from Void Storm drop tables.
SEVAGOTH LUCIFUGE HELMET
A macabre alternate helmet for Sevagoth, the Warframe who harbors the Shadow.

Railjack Changes & Fixes:
Increased Affinity reward for each Orphix to scale between 1,000 to max of 2,000 at level 60.
Railjack Earth Proximas Iota Temple, Ogal Cluster, Korm’s Belt, and Bendar Cluster now have a guaranteed Point of Interest.
Point of Interests are needed for Void Storm gameplay to ensure Void Fissures spawn to collect Reactant.
Sigils can now be equipped on Crew mates via their Appearance screen.
Added more unique Railjack Crew descriptions.
Fixed endless Affinity gain from Crew Repairs by sitting in a mission and allowing the Railjack to take damage while your Crew cleans up. Affinity granting Repairs from Crew mates now has a cap of 20 per mission.
Fixed Corpus Railjack Fighters endlessly spawning, resulting in exploitive farming.
Fixed the new Railjack Armaments (Glazio, Laith, Talyn & Vort) at any Tier only returning 25 Endo when Scrapped.
Upon login, players who sold the Glazio, Laith, Talyn, or Vort Armaments will receive the respective Endo difference per Tier up to a maximum of 40,000 Endo returned (roughly equal to 200 Armaments Scrapped). Our reasoning for the cap correlates to the Corpus Fighter spawn exploit that was used to endlessly acquire items, including Armaments.
Fixed Host migration while streaming into a Railjack mission resulting in an infinite load tunnel
Fixed Necramech’s not counting as being inside the Capital Ship airlock, which is needed to continue the mission.
Fixed various functionality issues related to being outside the Railjack as the Operator.
Fixed enemies not spawning and Capital Ship Turrets not firing during the weak point destruction phase of the Volatile mission.
Fixed objective marker for Point of Interests occasionally remaining active after completing it.
Fixed missing Railjack loading tunnel and incorrect skybox for Clients who load in faster than the Host.
Fixed On-call Crew members not attacking or repositioning when in Melee range of an enemy.
Fixed Railjack Crew assigned to the Pilot position not staying near the Corpus Capital Ship after approaching it and having to destroy the scan points.
Fixed becoming stuck in the Railjack load tunnel when attempting to start a Sanctuary Onslaught mission while in the Railjack Star Chart.
Fixed Clients experiencing the screenshake and sound effect of Void Hole when cast by the Host.
Fixed Necramechs not despawning in the Railjack when returning to the Dry Dock.
Fixed description for Railjack Drift Maneuver on controller being incorrect.
Instead of reading “press & hold LS to drift” it now properly reads “Tap LB while boosting to drift”.
Fixed momentary black screen occurring when viewing your Companion loadout while in the Arsenal in the Dry Dock.
Fixed issue where the names of Elite Corpus fighters in Veil Proxima were appearing as TARO instead of ORM.
Fixed getting pushed out of the Corpus Crewship and into Archwing when standing under a moving elevator within the Crewship.
Fixed Clients not seeing the visual dash FX of Corpus Elite Fighters.
Fixed Aurax Polaris & Aurax Culveri Moas counting for “Demolyst Killed” in the End of Mission player stats screen from Corpus Railjack missions.

Fixed a harmless script error that could occur when aborting from specific types of Railjack encounter.
New Codex Fan Art
In anticipation of the Call of the Tempestarii Update, we commissioned 5 of our official Warframe Creator Fan Artists to create pieces that are now live in the Fan Art section of the Codex! Use any Display in your Orbiter to decorate with this stunning artwork.
Improved networking performance for all platforms.
Made optimizations towards the Grattler FX that were affecting GPU time.
We’ve also scaled down the Grattler projectile size to further improve performance.
Made a micro-optimization when opening the Invite panel.
Made micro-optimizations to some core engine code.
Added Somachord Fragments for a special tune (avoiding spoilers here) from Call of the Tempestarii.
Find these Fragments in the Call of the Tempestarii Quest! If you miss them during your first run you can replay the Quest from the Codex!
The Clan Dojo Room Limit of 128 is now visible for Dojo Architects. This limit always existed but was never exposed to the player, which could cause confusion when building/destroying rooms.
When viewing the Dojo Transporter menu, the room you’re currently in will appear faded out with an arrow next to it to indicate that ‘YOU ARE HERE!’.
Khora’s Whipclaw line of sight checks are now a little more generous.
No longer will small rocks or detailed floor geometry block Whipclaw’s explosion! Enemies that hide behind cover will not be hit by Whipclaw if you hit the front of the object that enemies are hunkering down behind. However, if you strategically hit beside them, you will vanquish your foes.
Brood Mothers maggots now spawn less and less frequently the longer they’re alive to mitigate exploitive gameplay.
Removing unreleased Corpus Captura Scenes from nonexistent crates (as shown in the public drop tables).
Acolytes will no longer spawn underwater in Submersible Steel Path missions due to the water killing them instantly. They haven’t learned to swim yet.
Fixed Eximus enemies no longer having drops due to the recent move of Oberon & Ash Blueprints to Railjack.
For now, Eximus drop tables will reflect their normal variants. We’re experimenting with some other potential drop avenues and making improvements to Eximus overall on the heels of this change.
Fixed scenario where you could force the Acolytes to spawn in a Cambion Drift Steel Path mission at level 30 instead of the intended Steel Path level 100+.
Fixed scenario where dying while in Voidrig’s Guard Mode could prevent player movement.
Fixed enemies unable to target Titania when Reave (via Helminth Subsume) is cast while Razorwing is active.
Fixed Melee Guidance not being affected by Aura Strength Mods. This was causing Ash’s Blade Storm clones (also likely Mirage & Equinox clones) to give you temporary Melee Combo Duration buffs from their auras.
Fixed Deimos Captura Scenes found in hidden areas under Deimos not being Sellable or Tradable.
Fixed incorrect wording for the Deimos Heart Captura Scene description.
Fixed Halikar Wraith not having the correct Riven Disposition.
Fixed inability to Chat Link the Halikar Wraith.
Fixed Necramech and Archgun Affinity gained not displaying for the Host player if Necramech was dead at the time of mission completion.
Fixed ally Specters getting stuck in perpetual weapon swap animations.
Fixed World State Window always displaying that there are 5 Steel Path Incursions, despite completing some/all.
Fixed Zephyr getting stuck in her Divebomb animation when going through a Sanctuary Onslaught portal.
Fixed Mission Progress screen showing incorrect amount of Standing earned after completing a Bounty phase.
Fixed the Nautilus Wings Sentinel Attachment not respecting chosen Energy color.
Fixed typing while Extracting from a mission causes text to appear both in the Chat and the End Of Mission rewards search bar.
Fixed incorrect ingame Market icon for the Baza Prime Stock.
Fixed missing breed type for Vasca Kavat Imprints.
Fixed text in the Leverian dioramas being very difficult to read when using a light UI Theme (ie. Nidus, Orokin, Tenno).

Fixed audio issues with the Morgha Alt Fire.
Fixed audio issues with the Halikar Wraith.
