Free-to-play shooter Warframe now available on Xbox One

Posted on September 2, 2014 AT 05:20am

Digital Extreme’s free-to-play shooter Warframe is now available to download on Xbox One via the ID@Xbox program.

Warframe is a fast-action PvE shooter often described as MMO-Lite,” the game’s description reads. “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.”

Warframe supports Game DVR and features second screen functionality via SmartGlass with the Warframe Nexus App for Windows Phone, iOS, and Android. The app displays real-time game information and stats such as Alerts to critical missions and the Codex, which offers key data on all the game’s weapons, Mods, and more.

Players can purchase an in-game currency for real money called Platinum, which can be used to purchase new Warframes, weapons, and consumables. Various Platinum packages are available, and as usual the more you spend the better deal you get.

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 also available on PC and PlayStation 4.
