Online Free-To-Play Shooter Warframe Makes The Jump To Xbox One Today


Following its stint on PC and PlayStation 4, Digital Extremes’ co-op shooter Warframe is now available to download for Xbox One.

Billed as an accessible, console-oriented MMO, Warframe will put players in the role of an ancient warrior replete with mechanised armour and is the first free-to-play title launched through Microsoft’s [email protected] program.

Speaking about the launch, Digital Extremes’ creative director Steve Sinclair touched upon the game’s journey to the Xbox One:

“Warframe has been a labor of love for our team for over a decade. 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.”

With an emphasis on co-operative gameplay, the MMO-styled shooter divides players into groups of four. From there, users are tasked with waging war against the malevolent Grineer — an ancient race that has returned to wreak havoc on the entire solar system.

At 6.88GB in size, the studio’s title will also feature micro-transactions much like its PC and PS4 iterations. And while Digital Extremes has assured fans that the in-game purchases have been finely balanced to maintain fairness, users will be able to unlock weaponry and specialised armour faster than normal by purchasing the game’s bespoke currency.

In its transition to Microsoft’s platform, Warframe has also taken full advantage the SmartGlass app, meaning players can track their online progression through real-time updates and notifications on the go.
