Warframe to be PS4 Exclusive and Ship on Launch Day

Digital Extremes announced today that Warframe will be exclusive to the PlayStation4. For three months starting at launch on November 15 in North America and November 29 in Europe, PS4 system owners will get first crack at being a space ninja. Announced at PAX Prime in Seattle, Warframe is playable for all attendees at the Sony Booth #1222.

"With how the industry is evolving, this really is the Player Generation," said Steve Sinclair, creative director at Digital Extremes. "Games are reaching players hands in so many different ways now and Sony gets it, which is why we are bringing Warframe exclusively to the PS4 first. There's no reason not to download Warframe on day 1 if you're an action game lover – it's free!"

As a co-op focused game that thrives on community and clan-building, Warframe will take full advantage of the social connectivity and community building features coming to the PS4 . Some of the features involve the new enhanced DUAL SHOCK 4 controller that offers integrated audio, touch-pad controls and gameplay streaming capabilities. Additionally, second screen functionality will come in the form of an Android and iOS App called Warframe Nexus. This companion app will allow players to perform in-game tasks and provide pertinent real-time game info while away from the PS4 system such as alerts to critical missions, crafting and building inventory, and scheduling gaming sessions with friends just to name a few.

Players are introduced to Warframe as newly awoken Tenno warriors, thrust into a universe at war and armed with ancient exo-skeletal technology only they can operate. These Warframes bring unimaginable power and skill to the Tenno and provide players with unique offensive and defensive powers to explore and master. Players go solo or band together in squads of 4 to complete co-op based raids to locate ancient artifacts that will help customize and upgrade their Warframe and weapons.
