The hugely popular free-to-play third-person action game from Digital Extremes has been released through the ID@Xbox program on Xbox One.
“Warframe has been a labor of love for our team for over a decade,” said Steve Sinclair, creative director at Digital Extremes. “We believed in this concept when no one else did and it’s so satisfying to see the incredible reception it’s received from the gaming world — and now with the Xbox One launch it will just keep getting better.”
Warframe is a fast-action PvE shooter often described as MMO-Lite. Squads of four players band together to advance their characters and battle the oppression of the genocidal Grineer. Throughout their combat missions, players will continually increase and customize the power and abilities of their Warframe and weapons. Introduced to the game as newly awoken Tenno warriors, players are thrust into a universe at war and armed with ancient exo-skeletal technology only they can operate. These Warframes bring unimaginable power and skill to the Tenno and provide players with unique offensive and defensive powers to explore and master.
With an emphasis on cooperative play and clan-building, Warframe will take full advantage of the social connectivity and community building features the Xbox One offers. Game DVR will allow players to capture their greatest Warframe moments and share them with friends. Second screen functionality through SmartGlass will be utilized with the Warframe Nexus App for Windows Phone, iOS and Android. This companion app provides players with pertinent real-time game information and stats such as Alerts to critical missions and the Codex, which provides key data on all the Warframes, weapons, Mods and more to help players strategize their play.
