This weekend, Digital Extremes released a shiny new update to its free-to-play, third-person action game, Warframe. The update includes a new character class, updated builds for the randomized map generator, new Prime Weapons, and a host of bug fixes.
Additionally, DE revealed that the current player count for Warframe has reached the 3 million mark. From what I have played of the game personally (around 25 hours), I can tell you it’s a totally enjoyable co-op action experience, and since it is free to play, there is no excuse not to try it.
Digital Extremes has done a great job so far improving upon the game since its initial beta release back in February, and the company show no signs of stopping anytime soon.
Warframe is currently available for the PC through Steam and is coming soon to the PlayStation 4.
