TennoCon, the official annual convention exclusively for Warframe, is on the weekend – and while we're sure to get more news out of the show later today, we already have the first big news now. In a surprising look on a panel, Digital Extremes develops images of the next two Warframes coming to the online title – and while one of those we have seen before, the other is brand new.
The brand new Warframe, which we haven't even seen rumors to this point, is called Grendel – and you can see it in the picture above. Unfortunately, the speakers of Digital Extremes did not reveal much information about the new Warframes, so all we have is assumption.
The name Grendel proposes a monster of some sort, as it is the name of the creature who is against the hero Beowulf in the ancient history. He is described as "a shadow of darkness, excluded from happiness and cursed by God, the destroyer and the devourer of our human kind." Although this is a bit extreme for this particular Warframe, it seems to be quite powerful. [1

As for the second frame that the developer showed up with Grendel, it is the former known frame as a running man – and now has an official name, Gauss. As it seems to rely on speed, the frame will probably work a little like the flexible Volt. The video above (which was shown on a stream earlier this year) showed that Gauss moved at incredible speeds around the battlefield, although the presenter noted at the time that it was "subject to balance".

We have more at TennoCon 2019, and all that reveals about Warframe later in the day. At least, Empyrean expansion will be displayed correctly, and it will hopefully also come with a release date.
