Warframe is a free-to-play action role-playing third-person shooter multiplayer online game developed and published by Digital Extremes. Warframe was released for PC in 2013, it was later ported onto the PlayStation 4 in 2013, the Xbox One in 2014, the Nintendo Switch in 2018, the PlayStation 5 in 2020 and the Xbox Series X/S in 2021.
Needless to say, this game has spread itself across all gaming devices. So why wouldn’t mobile devices be next?
The playstyle of Warframe involve players controlling members of the Tenno. A race of ancient warriors who have awoken from centuries of slumber in Earth’s distant future. The Tenno have powerful weapons and abilities to help them on their new planetary war. The game includes shooting, melee games, parkour, and role-playing to allow players to advance their Tenno with improved gear.
The player starts with a silent pseudo-protagonist in the form of an anthropomorphous biomechanical combat unit called ‘Warframe’. The player possesses supernatural agility and special abilities, a selection of basic weapons (primary, secondary and melee) and a space ship called ‘Orbiter’.
It’s also worth noting that developers, Digital Extremes, have ported this game on multiple platforms now. So their mobile port will likely function and look quite similarly to the original game, depending on the user’s phone.
Initially, the growth of Warframe was slow, hindered by moderate critical reviews and low player counts. Since its release, the game has experienced positive growth. The game is one of Digital Extremes’ most successful titles, seeing nearly 50 million players in 2019.
Warframe mobile release
As for release date, we’ve heard nothing. There’s not even been a window of time to expect the release. But if their previous releases on various platforms is anything to go by, maybe we can expect to see the release in 2022.
