Warframe continues to show the industry what free-to-play games can be given enough time and effort, with developer Digital Extremes dishing out a ton of new details on upcoming content at TennoCon 2018. And yes, for those who don't know, TennoCon is an official, annual Warframe convention. Mental.
Anyway, players can look forward to a massive expansion later this year in the form of Fotuna, which is set to add a brand new open world area to the release. You can fill your eyes via the gameplay demo that we've embedded above. Looks lovely.
The studio has even more ambitious plans in place following the launch of Fortuna. At some point after the expansion's release, a new game mode titled Railjack will see you and a crew of up to four other players manage your own spaceship and wreak havoc in the skies. There are dogfights and you're able to board enemy vessels. You can get a look at all that in the video below.
Sounds promising, doesn't it? Are you a fan of Warframe? How often do you play? Run across some walls in the comments section below.
I play Warframe most days, over 1300 hours and counting. Can't wait until Fortuna drops. Railjack won't launch for a long time yet, something to look forward to next year though.
I wish I could just restart my profile cos last time I went on so much had changed and I didn't know what to do.
Warframe is coming to the switch and i cant wait
@adf86 Can you not delete your save data on your PS4?
@ShogunRok I wanted to do the same but the game save is on warframe servers, pretty sure only option is to make a new PSN account and then a new warframe account.
Warframe is weird with its incredibly frustrating with its intertwining menu systems. I wouldnt say this is f2p done right, borderline acceptable compared to loot boxes imo but not f2p done right.
@teknium_ Oh yeah that is why i quit the game now i remember.
I really should give this a go. Sounds like they could do with making certain aspects a little bit more user friendly but hey, it is free!
Just watched a 2018 beginner's guide and it looks like I might have to fire this back up after 4 years off.
@ShogunRok I think I tried that but I believe it's one of those games where it's all tied to your profile. It was a long while ago since I last tried it.
Really enjoyed it for the short time I played for a little while after launch.
I've considered going back to it several times - it really has changed a great deal though.
@adf86 I'm in the same boat. I played a ton but took a long break and now I'm totally lost.
Anyone looking to pick it back up after time off or just play in general I'll be happy to help you find your feet. Just leave a reply here and we can sort something out.
Edit: I've made a forum thread for anyone who would like to start or pick it back up here...
Haven't played it since last year but I like the new stuff (hoverboard and battleship) DE's adding.
I have quite a few prime frames, no way am I getting rid of my data. But I also haven't played in quite some time. I have a couple friends still playing, I suppose I could jump on their coat tails to get back up to speed.
For me, it was the endless grind and the RNG of the RNG that frustrated me to stop playing. I just stopped having fun running missions 50+ times trying for one rare prime part.
@themcnoisy They've changed quite a bit since the beginning if you haven't played in a long time.
I played it for 15-20 hours last year, it's pretty good but I have too many other games to play. Mainly i'd say it's good for young uns with not a lot of money and lots of friends and free time.
@starhops Thanks Star, I played it earlier this year and its just not for me. This game is for peeps with time to burn. The main systems are like marmite, for some it would be a hive of rewards - for some its an intimidating life leech. @shigurui has played for over 54 days in game time. Which I think is crazy, That would take me approximately 3 years to catch at the rate I game, only playing warframe!
@Splat @adf86 Yep I am in the same boat as well. Lucky for me I have a Switch so I might just wait and give it a go when it comes to that so I can start fresh.
It’s insane how good this game is, and it’s free. Amazing. So psyched for this!
It's a game I come back to every year or so.. It's truly a hidden gem in the PS4 library. Easily one of the top 10. My only issue is it's sooooo hard to get back into it. It's mmo levels of complexity sometimes.
I played it a lot when the PS4 first came out and there was nothing else to play. I don’t know that I’ll go back to it.
@adf86 - AGREED!!!
Every time I re-install it and try to give it a go I literally have no idea what I am doing anymore!! Would give anything to restart or at least replay some tutorials!!
@Shigurui - I may take you up on that!!
Started Warframe a few months back, cause I heard it's a f2p that is actually worth your time, and doesn't hide progress behind a paywall.
It's really good, but hell it's confusing. Until this day I don't get the syndicate system.
Man, I wished this would have been available when I was 15, no money, but all the time in the world.
I tried it when PS4 launched, but didn't think it was anything special and deleted it after playing a few times.
Started it a few weeks ago and wasn’t impressed. I just can’t get into MMO shooters. Give me a fantasy MMO and I’m all in.
This is probably a shout into the void, but designers please stop putting white text with no dropshadow or outline in games. UI is bad enough, but subtitles are the worst. The background always shows in-between bits of words making it harder to read. Even Mario Odyssey does it! Ack!
same for me as quite a few of the other respondents. i did play it quite a bit in 2014, and early 2016, but i tried it again earlier this year because there were a few big updates since the last time i had played and i was totally lost by how much it had changed.
