The Tenno utilize powerful Warframes as they wage battle against various factions such as the Grineer, Corpus, Orokin, and Infested. Brought back to life thanks to a passionate community, Warframe is turning out to be one of the examples of how listening to your audience can rally turn a game’s fortune around! There, developer Digital Extremes revealed that Panic Button, the team responsible for the exceptional Switch ports of Doom, Rocket League, and Wolfenstein: The New Colossus, will be handling the porting duties.
So far, Warframe is a bonafide success story as far as free-to-play games go: the title has attracted over 30 million players across Steam, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
There’s also hundreds of different weapons and thousands of customisation options, that allow you to mod the equipment however you want.
During its third annual convention this weekend, Digital Extremes announced the next expansion to arrive for Warframe which follows on from last year’s expansion, Plains of Eidolon.
First and foremost, Warframe will be getting two big expansions later this year.
Ride a Hoverboard – Blaze across the wide open Venusian landscape by piloting the Bondi K-Drive. It’s best known as a free-to-play cooperative third-person online action game, but there are various downloadable content packs that you can buy as well.
Unfortunately, as it stands now, there is no set release date for Warframe on the Nintendo Switch. Railjack will see the introduction of a four-player arena mode in space, with Digital Extremes stating that it will feature seamless transitions between space combat and on-foot combat. Every member of the ship’s crew is assigned a combat station. “Eliminate their crew, take out their reactor cores and get out before their ship explodes”. Meanwhile, Switch consumers should soon be able to enjoy the benefits of easy portability and integrated TV play for even more indie titles in the future.
