Developed by Digital Extremes, Warframe is a cooperative free-to-play third person shooter that puts players in teams of four highly sophisticated Tenno commandos to take on a host of enemies throughout the solar system. Players can engage foes in melee and ranged combat through a variety of weapons.
The game is as mentioned earlier a free-to-play title which can give players a similar gameplay experience to something such as the Destiny franchise from developers Bungie. With that said, players don’t have to rely on friends to jump on and play through the campaign as you can enjoy the game alone or with other online gamers.
