Warframe Volt and Loki Prime – Void Relic locations

Warframe's prime vault unlocks occasionally and there's plenty of opportunities to grab the necessary gear needed to make the two Frames. This requires grinding, mainly repeating certain missions to acquire Void Relics that you'll then need to open up in other missions, and even then there's no guarantee that you'll get the blueprints needed. We'll go over the farming locations for the Void Relics, as…

Warframe Fortuna – How to access the new world, unlocking hoverboards

Despite having around five years worth of stuff, Digital Extremes is certainly not done adding even more to Warframe. Fortuna introduces the game's second open world hub, as well as various new features and tweaks to the game such as a brand new hoverboard - the K-Drive, to Kick Flip into the stratosphere. Accessing this new hub world is going to take a little bit…

Warframe remasters the Plains Of Eidolon today

Spring is in the air in Warframe, and so are a bunch of bouncing Grineer tanks. A major overhaul update has revitalised the Plains Of Eidolon, the free-to-play shooter's original open-world zone. Digital Extremes have returned to Earth to polish up the environment, bringing it more in line with the scenic Venusian landscapes of Fortuna. That means more greenery, some new boss fights, more animals…

Warframe celebrates six years with a full set of giveaway gear

Time flies when you're having fun, and six years have just whizzed past playing space-ninja loot n' shooter Warframe. I can't think of many other games that have changed as drastically since launch, either. What was once a scrappy last-ditch attempt to keep the lights on at Digital Extremes is now a sprawling free-to-play monster with its own annual convention. To celebrate this endurance, for…

Warframe deploys its melee overhaul and new frame Hildryn

Not to be outdone by Dante and co, space-ninja loot n' shooter Warframe has finally rolled out the first part of its long-awaited melee overhaul. Digital Extremes have banished the dedicated melee stance, replaced by having full access to all your combos through your melee quick-button. You can even combo into and out of ranged attacks, punctuating a series of swings with a shotgun blast,…

Warframe ditches Alerts to hunt The Wolf Of Saturn Six

The big melee revamp for space-ninja loot n' shooter Warframe might be late, but Digital Extremes just rolled out an overhaul of one of its older, clunkier core parts. Alerts - time-limited side missions, rewarding players with money, crafting blueprints and the occasional bit of rare crafting gear - are out. In their place comes Nightwave, seasons of new story-driven missions delivered by pirate radio host…

Feature: Fifty shades darker

A Panel Shaped Screen: which run of The Darkness should you read?

The Darkness II is a game about being a mafia hitman, shooting everyone, and feeding the hearts of your enemies to the black abomination coiled inside your chest. But it’s also a game about fighting your darkest self, doubting your own mind, and finding salvation in love. When John reviewed it, he said: “I was genuinely expecting a brash, stupid shooter, noise and bluster and…

Warframe’s Profit-Taker heist update busts out the big guns today

Warframe's space-travel update might not be here until the new year, but Digital Extremes are ending 2018 with a bang and a very large boss to fight. Fleshing out the frozen Venusian landscape introduced in the Fortuna expansion, today's update - The Profit-Taker - finally lets players take on the giant robot spider seen in Fortuna's introductory missions. There's also a new Warframe (reluctant warrior-monk…

Warframe players refuse to let Fortuna instance number 69 end

A group of hardcore number fans have kept Warframe's Fortuna 69 instance alive for over a month now, and developers Digital Extremes are lending a hand. Instance 69 of the Fortuna hub area has become a bit of a party zone with dedicated digitheads loitering round the clock to prevent the free-to-play action-RPG's server instance from automatically shutting down. Digital Extremes even guided players through…

Feature: Fortuna favours the bold

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.

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…

Hoverboard races, future punk, revamped melee and the shape of Warframe to come

From threadbare arena shooter to sprawling space opera, Digital Extremes have grand ambitions for their free-to-play space ninja shooter Warframe. 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…

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…

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…

Feature: 20 years later...

A retrospective of Unreal, from the people who made it

Unreal turned 20 years old this month. The extraterrestrial first-person shooter spawned (and showcased) a game engine whose descendants still motor on today. To commemorate all those screaming prisoners and innocent alien creatures killed at the hands of jumpy players, I got in touch with a handful of the original team and asked them to share their memories of making the first Skaarj conflict. This…
