Digital Extremes Announce Warframe
Our good friends at Digital Extremes announce a brand new game, Warframe. The game will incorporate two of the most talked about trends in game development these days... free-to-play and co-op. The nicest news of all is that it is coming this winter and it is a PC title.
You can sign up now to reserve your alias and get in on the beta testing when it begins in the fall. Just for participating you'll also get an exclusive weapon to use in-game.
The press release offers up plenty of interesting details. Below, James Schmalz, CEO of Digital Extremes talks about the play model they chose for Warframe.
We've heard for years now that PC gaming is dead. It isn't dead; it just went underground for a few years and is now re-emerging with this massively growing free-to-play market that has matured to the point where the quality of games we're seeing rivals many AAA retail games. In many ways, we're going back to our PC action-based roots. Free-to-play is like shareware 2.0! Once again, we're connected directly to our end-user. They decide whether or not to pay for their experience and we listen to their feedback and continually improve the experience to make it worth paying for. Game development as it should be.
