Warframe Announced for Nintendo Switch

Warframe Announced for Nintendo Switch

Now, it looks as if the system is set to receive yet another free-to-play third-person shooter, as Digital Extremes has officially announced that Warframe is coming to the Switch. As a co-operative shooter, you're tasked with teaming up with other players and taking on computer-controlled enemies to improve your armour - the eponymous Warframe. It is bringing Digital Extremes' Warframe to the console.

After they announced a brand new expansion and co-op experience for Warframe, Digital Extremes also revealed that the game will receive a Nintendo Switch port.

The Nintendo Switch version of the game doesn't have a confirmed release date, but it's been available since 2013 on PlayStation 4 and PC and since 2014 on Xbox One. In fact, the game has more than 38-million registered players, according to the Digital Extremes news release. The game features hundreds of weapons and thousands of customization options to keep things fresh and unique-looking. Similar to the gathering bazaars of Cetus in Plains of Eidolon, Fortuna is an underground hub city that serves as a factory to clean coolant rivers and doubles as a trading hub for the region. Not only has the game managed to draw in increasing amounts of user attention both in gameplay and on streaming service Twitch, it also spawned the anuual TennoCon convention starting in 2016. Call up this handy customizable hoverboard and quickly glide, jump, and trick across a variety of terrain. And it's all free to play, to boot! Every member of the ship's crew is assigned a combat station.

This little third-person open-world adventure game can now boast a total of around 38 million registered players. "Eliminate their crew, take out their reactor cores and get out before their ship explodes". Whether it's cross-network play in titles like Rocket League and Paladins, or voice chat in Fortnite (and hopefully more games to come).
