Warframe: Fortuna graphics performance: How to get the best settings

Warframe's new Fortuna expansion is finally here, providing the perfect excuse for players old and new to dust off their Tenno armour and head out into the never-before-seen frozen wastes of Venus' Orb Vallis region. It's the second open world map that's been added to the game since last year's Plains of Eidolon update, but given the number of performance issues people encountered the first…

Warframe players speak out against crunch

Free-to-play acrobatic shooter Warframe just dropped its second expansion, bringing a whole lot of new stuff to the game. It was doubtlessly a lot of work for developers Digital Extremes – but, say some of its players, hopefully not too much. In a positive step, they’ve encouraged the team to avoid overwork and crunch, even if that means the game gets slower updates.

Feature: Everything you need to know

Warframe guide: essential tips for beginners

Warframe is almost impressively obtuse; to the outside observer rather impenetrable. The free-to-play loot shooter has over five years of additions since its launch, layering system upon system upon system. All of which have an impressive amount of depth to them, but it is also almost aggressively uninterested in making sure newer players understand any of it. There’s Warframes to mod, guns and swords and…

Feature: Variety is the spice of life

Warframe frames and mods: obtaining new frames, how to acquire the Revenant frame, equipping mods

Each of the frames in Warframe aren’t terribly complex to understand. They all move in basically the same way and have four unique abilities. There are 36 different frame types, which are basically character classes that you can swap between them at any point; assuming you’ve unlocked them first, but they can also be tweaked further with mods. This is of course not counting the various…

Warframe’s frozen open-world expansion Fortuna is out now

Warframe's second open-world expansion, Fortuna, is out, free and available to download, taking Digital Extremes's third-person free-to-play ninja shooter to the icy terraformed surface of Venus. Fortuna adds a slew of new features including stunt-capable hoverboards, a wildlife preservation mini-game, customisable kit-guns, buildable robot buddies and more. It's easily the biggest expansion for the game yet, its new map dwarfing the previous open-world offering Plains Of…

In their latest development livestream, they gave us our first peek at a few changes due in or near their upcoming expansion, Fortuna, tentatively due for release this autumn. Hoverboard races rewarding stunt combos are on the way, along with a new faction organising these…

Feature: Hoarding cash

Warframe materials: where to farm materials, how to farm credits via the Index mission

With all the more complex systems that Warframe has to offer, it's easy to forget to that you need credits to splash out on all the good stuff. Suddenly you may find yourself glassy eyed, wondering just how this could have happened and where to get more cash. Sadly in real life, we can't help with cash flow problems, but in this guide we can…

Warframe Plains of Eidolon: bounties, fishing, mining, and hunting for Eidolons

As one of the biggest and most ambitious updates since its inception, Warframe's Plains of Eidolon update introduced an open-world area in a free-to-play game that's otherwise entirely populated by procedurally generated levels. In this guide, you'll find information on what was included, such as bounties, fishing, mining, and even hunting things called Eidolons.

Warframe damage types: how they work, what enemy types are weak against

Starting out in Warframe, you don’t need to fret too much about different damage types, as you can just shoot guys until they’re dead. But as time goes by, you'll begin to face more and more difficult enemies. You’re going to have to learn how to slay them with maximum efficiency. In this guide, we will walk you through the damage types in Warframe, how…

But just what are Primes? In this guide to Warframe Prime Relics, we will show you how to get the best gear, as well as the conditions for crafting them and even a list…

Warframe’s minigame arcade debuts with Frame Fighter plus some old Easter eggs

Free-to-play space ninja sim Warframe has always had an 'anything goes' attitude to new content. While we wait for the Fortuna and Railjack expansions (adding a new open world planet and capital-class space combat respectively), idle Tenno now have a new option for whiling away the hours. Frame Fighter is a goofy little fighting game assembled from the main game's characters and animations. It's is…

Feature: Shoot up some sci-fi capitalism

Space combat marries Warframe’s disparate parts into a single whole

Warframe isn’t the best game I’ve ever played, but it sure is one of the best supported. What began as a relatively simplistic third-person shooter with acrobatics and corridor shooting now includes dozens of classes, an arsenal of hundreds of weapons, jetpack battles, and fights with 60-foot ghost bugs. The updates keep getting bigger, too. Warframe once mainly took place in corridors, and then they…

Warframe to add hoverboards, seamless spaceship battles

Warframe, the cooperative shoot-and-loot space ninja game, is about to get more of all of the above. Developer Digital Extremes announced an all-new open-world zone - purportedly five times bigger than the Plains of Eidolon - at the third annual TennoCon. But the most exciting announcement came at the end of the Warframe-centric convention. Code named "Railjack," the free expansion will let 1-4 players pile…

Warframe announcement expected in TennoCon livestream

Update: Digital Extremes have confirmed that everyone can get Ash Prime (that handsome fella above) for free. Just link your Twitch account to your Warframe account - details here. Weird to think that Warframe - that little space-ninja shooter that started out as a struggling developer's last chance - has an official convention now, but it does. TennoCon 2018 kicks off tomorrow, and they'll be wrapping up…

The 100 best-selling games on Steam in 2018 so far

We've just passed the half-way point of 2018, so Ian Gatekeeper and all his fabulously wealthy chums over at Valve have revealed which hundred games have sold best on Steam over the past six months. It's a list dominated by pre-2018 names, to be frank, a great many of which you'll be expected, but there are a few surprises in there. 2018 releases Jurassic World…

Warframe’s next story chapter – The Sacrifice – is out

Free-to-play space ninja sim Warframe has slowly evolved into the weird space opera that it always wanted to be. In-between the procedurally generated missions and resource farming, there are some genuinely dramatic scenes, some likeable characters and even a few bold, game-changing twists. Today marks the release of The Sacrifice, a new chapter in the story that developers Digital Extremes has been teasing for the…

Warframe’s new trailer bids us prepare for The Sacrifice

While it's primarily known for its space-ninja action, hideously compelling grind and a vast number of suits of space-armour to collect, Warframe's fans speak of its central story arc with hushed reverence, which features a rich Dune-like universe and one of my favourite plot-twists in any game. The story has been dangling on a cliffhanger for a while, but this month it's all wrapping up. Within,…

Warframe adds Sanctuary Onslaught mode and shiny new toys

Warframe has implemented a new free update in Beasts of the Sanctuary; a one-two punch of changes for the free-to-play cooperative shooter. First up is Sanctuary Onslaught, a survival mode that pits players, either solo or in squads of up to four, against increasingly difficult waves of opponents in order to pass from portal to portal and recover the missing Khora Blueprints. The other addition…

Noclip take on Warframe’s unlikely success story

If you were to look at Warframe now, it's hard to even imagine that Digital Extremes' free-to-play mega-hit ever had humbler origins. Even harder to believe that its very existence was a desperate last-ditch plan to keep the lights on at a struggling studio that had been turned away by every major publisher. In the latest in their oft-excellent series of candid interview-heavy documentaries, YouTube…

Warframe celebrates its 5th anniversary with ninja loot

I've been watching the evolution of free-to-play space-ninja shooter Warframe on and off for thirteen years now. Back at E3, 2005, it first saw the light of day as Dark Sector, a high-concept sci-fi action RPG years before its time. Rejected by publishers, Digital Extremes settled on reworking it into a Gears of War clone while they kept the dream alive. When the concept later resurfaced as…
