The Duviri Paradox is one of the most mind-bending expansions Waframe has ever received. It puts players into the shoes of a human trapped in a simulation known as Duviri. This world is an endless cycle of punishment, with the human being killed and reborn repeatedly. That is until a paradox that could be linked to the Tenno appears. Unlike many MMO expansions, Duviri aims at newcomers and hardcore Wafframe fans alike. It can be approached as the first thing you do in the game or left until you’ve explored the rest of the Warframe universe, playing the content through in order.

Developer Digital Extremes has struck a balance with The Duiviri Paradox by providing a new roguelite game mode that feels quintessentially Warframe. Players explore Duviri as a human, enhancing their abilities by competing objectives, before diving into The Undercroft. This is where Warframe players get to use their Warframes and play around with the more traditional gameplay they expect from the title. This walkthrough covers everything you need to know about the new expansion. From how the moment-to-moment to gameplay works to the aspects you’ll only start to play with when you’ve finished the main story and are hungry for more.

If you’re a new player, you can start The Duviri Paradox as soon as you load the latest version of Warframe. You’ll be presented with two ways to start the game, The Warframe Path or The Paradox Path. Choose The Paradox Path to start The Duviri Paradox because you can return to the Warframe content later. If you’re an experience Warframe player with an hour or so at least under your belt, you’ll find a new Quest in your CodexStart this Quest and then go to the navigation screen. You can select The Duviri Paradox from the banner in the top right-hand corner.

What is The Undercroft?

The Undercroft is a dungeon that exists within Duviri. When you enter it, you’ll have to complete a set of objectives that usually involve killing enemies. For example, you may need to establish and protect mining devices, kill a specific number of enemies, or gather a particular resource. This is also the only place you’ll get to use a Warframe in Duviri, and it’s where most of the Decrees you gather on the surface will come into play. You’ll need to create builds that benefit both the human character you play as and your Warframe when beating up Dax in The Undercroft.
