War. What – some of the greatest scholars of our time have asked – is it good for? “Absolutely nothing” is the traditionally arrived upon conclusion after miles of mind-boggling chalkboard math, but the gaming industry begs to differ. “Naming things,” it posits, resulting in an immediate surge of shocked whispers and “harumphs” all around the lecture hall. “Modern Warfare, Medal of Honor: Warfighter, Warface, Gears of War, God of War, World of Warcraft, World of Warplanes. And that’s just the beginning.” Which is technically correct, because now there’s also Warframe, an F2P “fast-action PvE shooter set in an evolving sci-fi world” from Digital Extremes – they of BioShock 2′s multiplayer, The Darkness 2, and, er, something called Warpath. So then, what exactly is a Warframe, anyway?
