Warframe celebrates its fifth birthday with a commemorative website, and a new player milestone.
Digital Extremes has announced the launch a new microsite – going live on March 14 – to mark the fifth anniversary of free-to-play co-op action game, Warframe.
Fans will be able to look back on the evolution of the game with other community members, learn new Warframe facts, and discuss their favourite moments. New videos will also be published, and commemorative gear and free in-game items will also be available.
Warframe entered open beta on PC on March 21, 2013. Since then the game has been ported to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and has amassed a mighty 38,083,936 players. The game is still proving popular, with eight million of those players joining the game in the last 12 months.
Digital Extremes have released a range of infographics detailing the numbers behind Warframe’s success. They certainly make me feel a little sympathy for poor old Captain Vor, who has been assassinated over 51 million times. What a career.
Steve Sinclair, creative director for Warframe, said in a press statement:
“Can it really be five years? When we started Warframe it was a 750MB install with one level. We had no expectations it would endure even half as long. But you, our Tenno, showed up and guided us and gave us hell! With your support we’ve continued to grow and experiment and with your blessing we’ll continue to do just that. There is still so much left to do… together. On behalf of the team here at Digital Extremes, thank you Tenno. See you at Tennocon!”
The third annual TennoCon will be held in July, where Digital Extremes will reveal more about the game’s future roadmap. For those not in attendance, you can follow the action via Twitch from 3pm PST/ 6pm EST on July 7, 2018.
