Digital Extremes announced today that Warframe, the fastest growing Free-to-Play game, is coming to the PS4 this Fall when the Sony’s next-gen system launches at retail. The sci-fi third-person action game that challenges players to release their inner ninja will debut with a playable demo at the E3 expo and we’ll be on hand to test out Warframe running on the PS4 in all of its cyber-sword slicing glory.
“The fact that we’re developing Warframe for the launch of the PS4 this fall is unbelievably awesome,” said Steve Sinclair, creative director at Digital Extremes. “The irony is not lost on me that our original sci-fi concept for this game was the first ever seen footage for the PS3 generation that never came to fruition until now. Exciting times are ahead with this next gen transition.”
As a co-op focused game that thrives on community and clan-building, Warframe will take full advantage of the social connectivity and community building features coming to the PS4. Some of the features involve the new enhanced Dual Shock 4 controller that offers integrated audio, touch-pad controls and gameplay streaming capabilities. Additionally, 2nd screen functionality will come in the form of an Android and iOS App called Warframe Nexus. This companion app will allow players to perform in-game tasks and provide pertinent real-time game info while away from the PS4 system such as alerts to critical missions, crafting and building inventory, and scheduling gaming sessions with friends just to name a few. Many of these features will be demonstrated during E3.
