LONDON, ONTARIO – February 23, 2021 – One of the most popular and unique Warframes ever created, the musical maestro Octavia dances to center stage today with her highly anticipated Warframe® Prime Access debut across all platforms: PC, PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, Xbox One, and Nintendo™ Switch. Thousands of players who have wielded Octavia’s dance-fueled attack style and created music for her distinct Mandachord can now access her stunning suite of musically-infused weapons, armor, cosmetics, and instruments of creation and destruction in Prime Access.

From the Mandachord, a musical creation tool giving players the ability to make their own music for battle using percussion, bass, and melody, to the Shawzin Prime, an innovative playable emote resembling a lute-like guitar, to the newly introduced beat-driven Bombast Instruments Pack (available only in Prime Access), Octavia Prime is loaded and ready to drop a beat!

The demand for Octavia Prime Access underscores a large Community movement generating thousands of inspired Mandachord and Shawzin-generated songs that have exploded across YouTube and Warframe’s forums ranging from the Beatles, Queen and Michael Jackson to Warframe’s own theme songs from The War Within and The Second Dream. The prolific player “Baffoon” alone has created more than 3,600 unique Mandachord tunes!

Octavia Prime Access Features

Octavia’s dazzling re-design features new golden hoop earrings, auxiliary cord ponytail, boombox leg packs, and a Shawzin design emblazoned across her torso. Octavia Prime’s enhanced power is boosted with one new Polarity Slot (Vazarin) for greater customization, Max Shields and Max Energy. Warframe’s Octavia Prime Access is available in four different PC packs (The Mallet, Resonator, Amp and Accessories Packs) and consoles (Octavia Prime Access Pack and the Accessories Pack) today. Refresh the Warframe.com Website at 11 am PT/2 pm ET for more details!

Additional Features Include:

  • Bombast Instruments Pack: Included in Prime Access, the new bass-heavy instrument pack for Octavia’s Mandachord drops deep grooves and will have players moving and grooving in no time

  • Shawzin Bonus!: The Aristei Prime Shawzin, a stylish Orokin-era guitar, arrives with a unique note pack to create unique, custom tunes. Join the community and become a Shawzin Hero with Octavia Prime!
