Warframe coming to PS4

Free-to-play game to launch alongside upcoming Sony console and use major DualShock 4 controller functions.

Digital Extremes has announced that it will be releasing its multiplayer co-op third-person shooter Warframe on the PS4 as a launch title.

Space ninjas will be invading the PS4 at launch.

According to an IGN report, the game will still retain its free-to-play microtransaction model like the original PC version. The PS4 version will use all the features of the DualShock 4 controller, including its touchpad. Further details on this have yet to be confirmed.

The game's creative director, Steve Sinclair, said that working with Sony was "attractive" for the company because developers would still retain control rights to their game. "Sony has been incredibly supportive and available [for indie developers], and [PlayStation 4], in my opinion, is incredible to develop for. It is awesome, and I don’t want to speak disparagingly about any existing or prior platforms, but we showed Warframe for the first time to our entire studio, and everyone had their jaws on the floor, how 1080p, silky smooth, and beautiful it was. So I’m really, really enjoying working on the machine."

For more information on the game, check out GameSpot's previous video feature below.

The game has potential. It is very laggy and buggy after the last big patch though.

It needs to add a lot more to gameplay to keep up. The core shooter/melee combat is solid, but it is too simple beyond that. It needs open world stuff, and much more interesting boss fights if it is going to stand a chance.

ofc he will say that. You want him to go and admit that " We made a game which does nothing to do but run and press same button.But you have to pay to win , not to play with kitchen knives. But hey with real money you can even get a Sword." Cmon people Ps4 is collecting all the PC trashes.

ohhhh, i get it. motion sensing technology is a useless feature UNLESS Sony recycles it from the Wii. it's not an issue of redundance. it's how dumb you people are.

I feel like I'm watching mass effect multiplayer all over again, fun at first but incredibly shallow.

This game started out great, I even bought the Grand Master package to show some support; But after update 7, everything is just going down the worst trail possible; Free to log in, pay to play contents, milking player, Devs lies is just part of the game now.

Why would I buy games and pay for online content on xbox when I can get a ps4 with free games like this one and free online content.

That's a great deal and look at these graphics!!!

I think what's most impressive is that Sony is going to game developers and making them awesome offers. They're saying "hey, make your game for PS4. No strings attached. You don't need a publisher to steal all your profits and intellectual property." I don't think anyone can argue against how cool that is.

ps4 and ps3 are getting the free to play games exclusively because M$ charge for online. that's why ps3 got dust and xbox didn't. the dev said that.

@acelogan1989 As far as I can tell there is only 1 weapon that you can't craft ingame so far. You can make everything else, but it is a long grind for some things.

@gameguy182 No the gaming PC will be the gaming PC of the past present and future.

The PS4 will just be the next playstation for several more years.

You mean a shitload of poor to mediocre titles not worth their bargain prices or even the bandwidth used to download them?

@JudgeSim It's fun. It is just too shallow. I hope the devs have more plans. The core shooter is fun.

@caloc Buy a gaming PC. It can play all the indies and almost every AAA.

@Shango4 Yeah the game looks fantastic on PC. The creative director said it looks all lot better on the PS4.

@Shango4 Says the guy who never played Warframe. You will uninstall game after you see the first mission. Only thing Ps4 will get from these devs are "Ballsucker" fail games and tries to milk console kids for their money.

@wexorian all the games that failed at PC big times comes to console not the real games.Console can get only trash from PC nothing else

@wexorian Are not they? What? A friend of mine loves Warframe. Actually Warframe is a pretty successful title and it is really fun to play.

@willzihang @arqe it's a great game. You don't have to pay for anything really. You can work at the game to get everything you need, it just takes some time and grinding

@deathstream @gameguy182 No I mean the GPU, CPU and RAM speed are going to out perform most modern PC's for a couple of years. As for the quality of the games thats all speculative and subjective. Furthermore you don't even know what other games could come to the PS4. What games would play on the xbox? Halo, Forza, Gears, and a remake of the original Fable? I mean talk about trash. If you are complaining about the cost of bandwidth for a ps4 (which you can't possibly know how much it would cost) then why are you paying for internet in the first place? Its not like anybody cares about your opinion or anything.

@gameguy182 @Shango4 becouse they sucked and fucked BIG time with this game so they need to milk money from console kids who likes katanas. and its more suitable for console forward X X becouse thats what you'll be doing all the time.

@gameguy182 @y3ivan @deathstream .. and you believe 'blah' 'blah' marketing speak... look up 'gullible' in the dictionary super-consumer.

 The GPU is very average- a little more powerful than a 7850; the CPU is pretty weak by PC standards. GDDR5 8g is nice, but remember it's unified memory- and ggr5 doesn't simply just trump ddr3 at everything, it's much more complicated than that.

@gameguy182 @y3ivan @deathstream console will take over PC gaming ? dude you are ... i dont even know proper word for it. they are developing the console like how 5 year ? and not even equel todays mid price computers ... 8 GB RAM OMFG HUUUGE right ? 50$ for 8gb ram ? OMFG HOW PC WILL COUNTER THIS ... my 8 gb pc just lies there for door holder ... and that CPU it is not even Equal to todays midrange gaming CPU i3570-k .... get real son ...

gameguy182

@y3ivan @gameguy182 @deathstream Uh well this time it is. At least according to the specs and a lot of developers that have worked with the console already. Even in this article the creative developer is quoted as saying "It is awesome, and I don’t want to speak disparagingly about any existing or prior platforms, but we showed Warframe for the first time to our entire studio, and everyone had their jaws on the floor, how 1080p, silky smooth, and beautiful it was." So clearly him and his team feel as though it looks and performs better on the PS4. Heres some more articles and opinions if you need anymore proof.

@caloc @julzeverne You can do that with a PC as well. Controllers plug into PC's just as easily, and PC'c plug into TV's too!

@Shango4 @arqe if you call warframe a good or even average game no need to argue with you.
