Digital Extremes is celebrating an iconic milestone for Warframe with the release of Styanax – the 50th playable Warframe. Revealed in an animated short, Styanax can be instantly added to all player Arsenals for a limited time completely free when Veilbreaker launches for all platforms in September.
Styanax is a mighty and herculean Warframe, inspired by the ancient Greek warrior Astyanax, with formidable abilities and immense power. The new animated short follows Styanax as he helps restore order to the Origin System after a group of Corpus settlers follow through with a nefarious agenda led by a harrowing cult leader, The Philanthropist.
Styanax – the 50th Warframe
- Axios Javelin – Call upon the Axios Javelin. Any enemy Styanax strikes with his javelin is pushed back. When the javelin propels an enemy into a wall, the area suffers a burst of damage.
- Tharros Strike – Summon Tharros, the shield of Styanax. Swing Tharros to repel enemies and reduce their shields and armor. Styanax regenerates health for every enemy struck.
- Rally Point – Draw enemy attention to Styanax. His resolve uplifts nearby allies, regenerating their energy and shields. Shield regeneration increases with the number of enemies near Styanax.
- Final Stand – Exude might and valor. Rise into the air and throw a barrage of Axios Javelins. The javelins deal damage to nearby enemies wherever they land. Direct hits to enemies deal even greater damage.
Warframe’s Veilbreaker update will also see the return of fan-favorite Grineer Kahl-175 as a playable character in a new Quest following the events of The New War. After a curious signal is picked up by Daughter of the Entrati family, the Tenno are contacted to investigate a Murex ship near Deimos and find its source. As Kahl, players will utilize new powerful abilities and tech to fight through a Sentient onslaught and returning Archon boss enemies aboard the Murex to locate and safely release his brothers from imprisonment.
In addition, the Veilbreaker update is set to add a slew of new playable weekly missions with Kahl-175 at the center of the action. These will offer cooperative action combat and allow players to increase Kahl’s overall rank as missions are completed and earn new customizations along the way.
New Customization Options
Veilbreaker also brings Warframe players new Customizations, Accessories, and Quality-of-Life adjustments including new Warframe Voidshell Skins, exclusive Kahl-175 cosmetics, the release of the Protea Caladrius Collection, and reworks to select systems including Thrown Weapons.

Get ready to dominate the battlefield in this unique alternative look for Protea.
