    In the diminishing world of free-to-play games, Digital Extremes' Warframe is truly one that stands out from the rest. Offering hours of content and many different ways to play the game using an expanding number of "Warframes", or classes. This third-person shooter pits groups of Tenno, the protagonist race in the game, against hordes of many different enemies with a plethora of loot to obtain throughout the game.

    Warframe has never been released, technically. It's been in a beta since the closed beta began in October of 2012, with the open beta launching on March 25, 2013. Digital Extremes also developed Dark Sector, which shares many similarities and plot points with Warframe and some fans even consider Warframe to be a direct sequel to Dark Sector, with some elements from the game being used in Warframe as part of the background story.

    Although Warframe has a fleshed out combat and mission system, as well as a variety of game types and maps, the game has received the brunt of its criticism from its grind-y nature with loot drops and repeating missions, as well as its main story. With the recent changes on mobility and movement mechanics, Digital Extremes decided to overhaul the story to bring it to the same standard they brought the other aspects of Warframe to. The update is titled The Second Dream and "brings a higher fidelity of storytelling to the game in the form of a cinematic-driven quest" which is what many players have felt the game was missing.

    In addition to an expansion of the story in the game, a large number of content has been added to keep things fresh for players. Digital Extremes has done this in the form of a brand new Warframe called Ivara, the huntress and the thief.


    More of the changes coming to Warframe include the following:
    Warframe: The Second Dream is currently available on PC with a release today on PlayStation 4, with the update on Xbox One "coming soon." Warframe is available to download for free through Steam, or the Xbox and PlayStation stores.

    Defiantly worth getting this game. You don't require ps plus to be able to play it online. I got thousand+ hours played on steam. I still play it daily.

    I think the article tags are a bit off.. :roflmao:


    Warframe is a pretty decent F2P game, I played a lot of it when I got my PS4 originally but stopped after awhile once I got some games to play.

      Thank you for letting me know. I had planned to write on Square Enix's sale on the FF series on mobile platforms, but there was no source or confirmation from Square Enix, so I scrapped it. I will change the tags, thanks!

    DWBDAKOTA, I'm sure you've already seen this and have been playing it, but I thought I'd tag you anyway in case you haven't been playing Warframe lately. If anyone else wants to play Warframe with me on PC, send me a message on here or on Steam!

      Really? Just redownloaded it on my new hard drive and I was hoping it was gonna be a solid update. Ivara looks really sweet with the variety of arrows and abilities. I also like the focus on stealth and she looks like she fits my play style more than Loki and other Warframes. I'll check it out for myself, but I hope it's not as bad as you say.

      Well, a story expansion is still nice. I've heard some good things on other sites, so I'll see for myself. Those skins, though! I'm gonna have to grind for some plat to get those skins. :tongue:
