Warframe Tennocon 2022

Warframe fans rejoice as developer Digital Extremes announces the seventh annual Tennocon event, taking place digitally in the Summer of 2022.

Fans of the action role-playing franchise have already been kept busy this year with huge updates to the mainline Warframe game, an anniversary event celebrating nine years of Warframe.

The New World follow-up Angels of the Zariman released today (May 5, 2022). However, Digital Extremes aren’t done yet, with loads more to come before the end of 2022, and Tennocon is just the pinnacle of Warframe’s massive 2022.

What’s going on at Tennocon 2022?

Art and Cosplay Contests

Popular art and cosplay contests return to Tennocon this year, but since the event is digital again, entries are open for remote application now. Enter your fan-art or custom cosplay entries now using this online form.

If you’re still working on something, you’ve got time, but make sure to get your entry in before June 16, 2022, at 8:59pm PDT/11:59pm EDT (4:49am BST on June 17, 2022).

Dojo Showcase

Another of Tennocon’s most popular events is the Dojo Showcase. Player Clans have been submitting their custom Dojos throughout the year, with the very best designs picked to feature in the Star Chart each month.

If your Clan’s Dojo has been featured in the Star Chart this year, one of your team can expect to receive an in-game alert that you are eligible to submit your design for a digital tour during Tennocon 2022.

The Spring Featured Dojo Contest is still underway, and winners will also be eligible to apply to be featured during Tennocon, meaning there’s still a chance for your Clan to get involved! Entries for the Spring contest close on May 20, 2022. Find out more on the Warframe forum.

News and exclusive reveals

Digital Extremes has also revealed that we can expect some exclusive Warframe news during the event. While we don’t know what this is as yet, we can hope for some exciting content updates coming up at the end of 2022 and into the new year.

With 2023 the ten year anniversary of Warframe, we could also perhaps expect to hear some news about what events, updates and giveaways will take place in celebration of the occasion.

To give you an idea, The New War, 2022’s massive Warframe expansion, was revealed during last year’s Tennocon.

Again, with this year’s convention leading up to the game’s tenth anniversary, we’re keeping our fingers crossed for something even bigger.
