Warframe - Become a Sci-FI Ninja

Battle your way through beautiful alien planets.

Introduction

Warframe is an action-packed third-person shooter with multiplayer elements. It's free to play on PC, console, and the Switch. Warframe was created by Digital Extremes, who have developed the game beyond its shooter origins.

Progression isn't linear, allowing the player to pick and choose how they will spend their time. Engage in open-world exploration, PvP, or search the cosmos for your next cosmetic item or pet. It's up to you.

Concept

Warframe is steeped in lore. The game is set in a futuristic solar system. You play as the Tenno, a faction of alien warriors. During character creation, you must choose a Warframe, which functions like a class system.

Warframes come in all shapes and sizes. If you want to be a gunslinger, choose the agile and deadly Mesa. If you want to be a tank, choose Rhino, a powerful source of defense. If you want to DPS but dislike firearms, then use Volt's electric touch.

"Warframe's unique class system caters to most playstyles."

Graphics and Audio

The graphics are beautiful and immersive. A clean, minimalist UI really lets the world and gameplay shine. All of the focus is kept on the action.

Warframe's audio takes the same approach as its graphics, complimenting the game instead of distracting. The music punctuates intense moments without drowning out the voice acting.

Text prompts and quest details are read out, which can be useful if your attention is tied up in a shootout.

Gameplay

Warframe's gameplay is standard for third-person MMOs. If you're already used to navigating a combat-based virtual world, then you can probably adapt to Warframe with relative ease.

"Warframe is easy to begin, but difficult to master."

One of Warframe's defining features is the impressive dexterity of the characters. The Tenno enter combat with the speed and reflexes of parkour professionals. As a result, fights are intense and exciting.

Conclusion

In a nutshell, Warframe is an impactful sci-fi masterpiece. Progression is player-driven. You choose how to spend your time. The game has impressive amounts of customization, especially when adapting the game to your playstyle.

Want to be a speedy DPS with javelins? Want to use the void to buff your friends? Want to manipulate the battlefield to your own ends?

Whatever you prefer, Warframe's got you covered.

Replay Value

Unfortunately, the game can get repetitive after a while. The problem isn't in the world or enemies - they stay fresh and unique throughout the game. Instead, the issue is in the missions, which typically boil down to "wipe out the enemies on the map". Eventually, you may get tired of this formula.

However, with that said, this game still has a fair amount of replay value. There are over fifty classes to choose from, and hundreds of weapons. A player can start over from scratch, make a new build, and have a brand new experience.

TL/DR

Warframe is a fast-paced action shooter that will send you hurtling off into a sci-fi universe.
