In December 2015, Digital Extremes released Warframe‘s first cinematic story quest, “The Second Dream”. This quest features prominent characters from the game and introduces a new faction, the dreaded Sentients. Also, and most importantly, The Second Dream serves as an “Awakening” to the Tenno’s true nature, as more than a mere Warframe, “more than human, but once a child, like any other”. Completion of this quest grants access to a new game mechanic named Focus and allows the player to enter the battlefield as themselves, temporarily, through Transference. During Transference, the Warframe is temporarily deactivated (Provided the player isn’t using Excalibur Umbra), and a spectral form of the Tenno themselves enters the battlefield, channeling one of five Focus Abilities, depending on which of the five Focus Schools the player chose during the quest’s events.
