Warframe Makes It Next-Gen Debut On PlayStation 4
Peter Donnell / 3 years ago
Digital Extremes announced today that Warframe, the fastest growing Free-to-Play action game this year on PC, is now available on Day 1 for the PS4, beginning with Midnight launch events on November 15th throughout North America. With a simple download via the PlayStation Store, all PS4 system owners can play the highly stylized sci-fi third-person action co-op game for free. Best of all, Warframe does not require a PlayStation Plus membership.
Warframe was announced for the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system earlier this year and has quickly become one of the top Day 1 launch titles to watch; primarily due to the rapid success of the title on PC when it went Open Beta in March. In addition to enjoying a Triple-A gaming experience for free, PS4 system owners can expect to see frequent free content and feature updates that will continue to broaden the scope and depth of the game over time. To help influence future content and features, players are encouraged to join the dedicated, passionate community found in the official Warframe forums at Warframe.com.
“Warframe offers an incredibly rich gaming experience for the low, low price of Free,” said Steve Sinclair, creative director at Digital Extremes. “It’s a win-win situation for everyone. The Free-to-Play model allows independent developers like us the opportunity to take risks on new ideas that otherwise would never see the light of day in a traditional retail scenario; and the low price-point barrier for gamers gives them the opportunity to experience the game, provide us feedback and then choose to support the game and its continued development.”
Players are introduced to Warframe as Tenno warriors, who have discovered an ancient exo-skeletal technology only they can operate. These Warframes bring unimaginable power and skill to the Tenno and provide unique offensive and defensive powers to explore and master. Players go solo or band together in squads of 4 to complete co-op based raids to locate ancient artifacts that will help customize and upgrade their Warframe and weapons and win the war against the genocidal Grineer, Corpus and Infested enemies.
A special cinematic trailer was released earlier this week on the Warframe YouTube channel to commemorate the launch. Warframe can be downloaded for free through the SEN web store or via the PlayStation Store.
Thank you Warframe for providing us with this information.
