Warframe Producer Details PS4 Free to Play Model and DualShock 4 Features

By   /   2 years ago

Based on the crazy idea of cryosleeping Tennos, mass cloning and cybernet enhancements; the free to play co-operative third person shooter Warframe feels like it deserves attention.

Warframe so far is bound to release as a PlayStation 4 exclusive launch title and will accompany the console on day one for US as well as Europe on November 15 and November 29 respectively.

In line with the approaching release date, we are being fed information regarding what the space ninja game has in store for us.

So for starters, the new DualShock 4 controller for PlayStation 4 will be put to use as whenever you enter a mission you will be briefed through the speaker on the controller.

The light bar on the controller will, for the first time bring the life bar in your hands insofar as when you take damage it will flicker from blue to green and eventually red when your strength is completely drained suggesting that the Warframe has been completely damaged.

Last feature for the DualShock 4 controller, although still under development will map all the special powers of your player onto the controller. This means that you won’t have to hit complex combinations of the button sin order to attain a special power; a simple touch of a button would do the trick.

According to Kudrika, it will take you almost 10 hours of gameplay to attain the maximum potential of items for you Warframe. This includes Warframe, Sentinel, and primary, secondary, or melee weapons. Furthermore, that you won’t be left without anything to do and new weapons and customization mod will continue to be added every now and then.

New weapons will be added every one to two weeks while major updates after six to eight weeks will add new Warframes enemy types, boss battles, art sets, narrative, game modes, and of course a lot more.

About the free to play model he announced that:

Players can collect blueprints and materials in game, take them to the foundry, and build new Warframes, weapons, and beyond. Every single item in game can be crafted this way, so nothing is behind a pay wall. If you’re a player with lots of time on his/her hands to play Warframe, you can collect all of the necessary materials to build up your arsenal. If you’re a weekend warrior and can’t invest as much time into Warframe, you can simply purchase items via microtransactions. This truly makes us a free-to-play title.

So, does that excite you enough?
