Warframe Free-to-play Beta: The Armor You Want
The Digital Extremes studio have taken a leap of faith from their comfort zone of previous games such as the Unreal series, Bioshock and The Darkness II, and landed deep into the Free-to-Play world with this exciting new third-person co-op action junkie game.
The story is that you are an ancient race called the Tenno, who are masters of the blade and gun, and that you have been floating in the ancient ruins longer then Mick Jagger’s been alive (That’s pretty long).
A race known as the Grineer are terrorizing the solar system and spreading quicker than an all girl crowd at a Justin Bieber concert. A call echos out to you and behold, you awaken from your deep slumber.
Rescued from your slumber, the Lotus will guide you and help you survive.
The Grineer are looking for you, you must be prepared. Learn to survive or die trying.
The Warframes are a type of “exo-armor” which uses unique combat technology to create the ultimate weaponry. Each Warframe holds different mystical powers and you have to earn them to use them.
Judging by the trailer, which you can see if you click here, you get a choice to play four different characters which look like they have different shark heads. Once you get over the factor that your character looks like a hammerhead shark. By the looks of it this will be a fast-paced game that will keep you on your toes and once you get upgraded, will have you doing things at an epic level.
The game does look like a lot of fun and reminds me of the Cyborg Ninja from Metal Gear Solid combines with the Mass Effect world. My only concern is if it’s purely an online only game as it might suffer against big competitors such as Planetside 2.
If you want to get your way in on the Closed Beta, IGN are giving away free codes right now, and you can get one for free if you click here.
Give it a go and see for yourself. If that hasn’t got you going, all I can say is mother ‘effing Space Ninjas!
