Warframe is noted for its excellent triple-A gameplay usually reserved for high priced games such as Destiny 2, Call of Duty or Titanfall.

The usual shooter elements are present in the game, however additional game mechanics such as R.P.G and stealth elements are present.

Another traditional system in the game is its player upgrade mechanic that uses the familiar experience and level up paradigm.

Story missions can be played alone or with four other players in a co-op P.V.P mode.

Although the game is designed to be free-to-play, the game does use microtransactions for certain items in the game.

However, it should be noted that unlike some similar games in the genre, everything can be acquired completely free through grinding.

Warframe has been around for seven years now and is currently on its sixth expansion pack.

New content such as the mentioned expansions, as well as new weapons and upgrades are regularly added to the game.

    Nice post. I was very close to getting into Warframe, but decided not to because I wanted to play on my PC, but my gaming friends are all on Xbox. I think it’s great that they were able to port it over to the Switch, but I think the next step is to implement cross-play. Hopefully they’ll try to do that this year, but we’ll see!

      Yeah, it was out on PC originally so that’s where the majority of its playerbase was, however Warframe became quite popular on PS4.

      It will be great if they develop a crossplay feature and since it shows no sign of slowing down, this is a possibility in the future.

      Thanks for commenting Jerry.
