If you are new to Warframe, you will be able to travel to the Plains of Eidolon after playing for only a few short hours. This brand new area located on Earth, the game’s starting planet, is Digital Extremes’ most ambitious project yet. It transforms Warframe from a corridor-set dungeon crawler into an open-world MMO in the mould of Destiny. Well, it does for veteran players, at least. For newbies enticed by this exciting new update it offers little more than confusion.

I am not a Warframe player, but after speaking to Digital Extremes earlier this year about Plains of Eidolon I was excited to try it out. The developers promised that this would be an update for new players as much as it was for long-time ones. But barely 20 minutes into my time with Plains of Eidolon it became clear that I simply was not meant to be there.
