Warframe’s TennoCon 2021 fan festival is finally here, promising a full day of presentations and announcements for the long-running booty launcher. Although TennoCon used to be a face-to-face event, Digital Extremes has switched to a fully digital program due to the coronavirus. This year, gamers can expect live developer questions and answers, art and sound presentations, giveaways for game items, and the entire program ends with a major revelation of Warframe’s next big expansion, The New War.
How to watch TennoCon 2021
TennoCon 2021 is streamed throughout Saturday from 12:30 ET to 18:00 ET. Here are some places you can tune in:
Something to keep in mind: If you watch TennoCon 2021 on Twitch, you’ll get special Twitch Drops for in-game items, including a Loki Prime warframe if you watch during TennoLive, the main presentation starting at 5pm ET.
There are also in-game celebrations in Warframe's Earth Relay, one of the player's central areas. The main celebration of the game starts at 5pm ET, so you can also sign in to Warframe and head to Earth Relay.

What to expect from TennoCon 2021
TennoCon is a specific full day event for Warframe fans. Most of the presentations throughout the day will delve into the development of the game. However, if you’re only interested in the big revelations, be sure to tune in at 5pm ET. That's when TennoLive officially starts and is basically the main presentation of the program, where Digital Extremes will present the new expansion and make other major announcements.
In previous years, TennoLive has had some pretty wild ads. During TennoLive, new areas of the open world, spaceship combat and important film missions have been revealed. As of this year, Digital Extremes has already tried the following: the New War expansion. This was first announced in 2019 and was supposed to be the next big chapter in Warframe history, but was delayed a few times. It is now officially ready to be fully revealed, but I don’t know exactly what to expect. It could be another mission or The New War could be much bigger.
