The year may be 2015, but players will feel like they are launching back to 1980 with the new Wyrmius mini game. Players can use Wyrm’s signature laser rifle to blast through increasingly challenging enemies in this Sentinel-based space shooter. To play, gamers can visit their Arsenal and Equip Wyrm, visit ‘Appearance’ and select the ‘W’ loadout at the top of the screen….But not just anyone will find the elusive Wyrm. It isn’t quite as easy as it sounds!

For those unaware of what Warframe is. The game is set in the far reaches of outer space during a new Dark Age, Warframe introduces the Tenno, a race on the brink of extinction after being enslaved by the Grineer for centuries. Players enter Warframe on the cusp of the Grineer’s victory over the Tenno until they begin to arm themselves with Warframe – an ancient exo-skeletal technology only they can operate. Warframe is available now for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. For more information and to play for free visit the Warframe website.
