Launched for PCs exclusively only a couple of months ago on the 21st of March 2013, Warframe will see a PlayStation 4 version soon. Along with aiming at rapid burgeoning by the game’s introduction to PS4, Digital Extremes will be keeping the same free-to-play microtransaction model which is quite hip these days.
The ninja based game’s creative director Steve Sinclair has confirmed the news to IGN while laughingly referring to it as “a big, messy space ninja game” – but don’t take the wrong impression, they have really put themselves into the development of Warframe, certainly resulting in a Dual Shock 4 worthy game-play. For more on this watch the video by IGN.
Not having to join Sony’s platform unlike with Xbox where publishers usually have to, means that Digital Extremes will be completely in charge of the game and its future. Add that to the seemingly boundless possibilities that Warframe lovers would get owing to Dual Shock 4 and the free-to-play feature; you’ve certainly got a winner! In Sinclair’s words, the F2P gives them a chance at prosperity again.
The current gameplay allows a maximum of four players to tag along in a third person shooter mode. It gives you armored ninjas battling through levels while making purchases for improved weapons and warframes – the armor of our players.
The version is bound to launch alongside the PS4 launch date meaning that we will have to wait a bit longer to confirm the actual features to be added to the game.
