Digital Extremes has released the Warframe update 1.015 for both last-gen and next-gen platforms! This patch is for the Echoes of War title update, which is the first mainline update of the year! Read on for the full Warframe Echoes of War patch notes, which the devs call the 31.1.0 title update.
Warframe Update 1.015 Patch Notes | Warframe 31.1.0 Patch Notes | Warframe Echoes of War Patch Notes:
Update 31.1.0 includes PC Hotfixes 31.0.2 – 31.0.11 and new Echoes of War content! The update is ~2.3 GB on PS4 and ~5.28 GB on PS5 (size variations are to be expected based on the ways in which the different systems operate).
The year is 2022, and Digital Extremes is back with the first Mainline of the year.
Less than 2 months ago The New War Quest was launched on all platforms. Our ambitions to have Replay on launch didn’t make it in time, but we made it our top priority to have it ready for our first Update of 2022. There’s still no accurate words to describe our appreciation for all the support and reactions to The New War, and we hope you enjoy replaying it as many times as you wish!
There’s lots more in the Warframe oven for 2022 – thank you for coming along the ride!
In addition, you may notice nods to the Public Test Cluster in some sections. Thank you to everybody that participated in our weekend test! We’ve made some changes in response that you’ll find throughout the patch notes.*
*The following changes/fixes from the PC update will be coming in a future update since they were code and missed our Cert deadline:

THE NEW WAR IS NOW REPLAYABLE!
Experience The New War Quest once more, Tenno! Access The New War Quest in the Codex to Replay. Please note with this implementation the Replay is a full time commitment and you will be locked into the Quest as you were in the first run, so plan accordingly.
SPOILER POLICY This quest has significant Spoilers for Warframe and its future. While The New War has been out since December 15th, there are still Tenno out there who have yet to experience it for the first time. Please let all Tenno experience it at their own pace, and be kind. Use liberal spoiler tags if you wish to talk about it, and do not ruin the experience for someone else. Content Creators should clearly label spoiler content and use spoiler-free thumbnails.
The Quest can be discussed in our temporary Sub Forum: https://forums.warframe.com/forum/1782-the-new-war/
Please note on Replay (heavy spoilers):
During the “end choice” moment, you’ll be able to select the other choices for strictly experience purposes. The choice you made in your original playthrough will override it each time once complete.

As the pool of Adversary weapons grows and your checklist fills out, the natural chance of finding a Progenitor (Larvling or Candidate) with the exact weapon you desire shrinks. This Adversary Weapon Generation Quality of Life change is meant to reduce randomness over time of what weapon a Progenitor Candidate (Sister) or Larvling (Kuva Lich) can spawn with.
How it works: By skipping a Progenitor (choosing not to Mercy them) the spawned weapon is then put into a ‘reject’ pile for that round of Adversary generation, meaning that it will not appear again and ultimately reducing the weapon pool each time you ‘reject’.
The list of rejected weapons is cleared once you accept an Adversary and the process would start again from a clean slate for both Sister or Kuva Lich the next time you go looking for an Adversary. This list clearing applies to both Sister and Kuva Lich, meaning once the chosen Adversary is Converted or Vanquished, the list clears for both factions. SEASONAL EVENTS
