Warframe is a cooperative science-fiction shooter. It was developed by Digital Extremes, the developers of such games as The Darkness II, Pariah and Dark Sector. It is based on free-to-play business model and offers option microtransactions.
The action takes place in the distant future, somewhere in a remote corner of the galaxy. The story focuses on the race of Tenno, which was driven to the verge of extinction by the Grineer Empire. The fate of the weaker side of the conflict seemed to be sealed, but it all changed after the discovery of the eponymous battle armors. These ancient artifacts, crafted by a long-extinct civilization, grant their users incredible offensive capabilities, and Tenno are the only ones that can make use of them. As a result, the war turned out to be much more even.
Warframe puts an emphasis on co-op mode. The character we control looks like a cybernetic ninja. He can fight with a sword and a gun, as well as perform some amazing stunts. The players join together in teams and go on missions against the AI-controlled Grineers. Modification and development of weapons and armor are an important part of the gameplay, though acquiring the best pieces of equipment often requires performing some really dangerous tasks. What’s curious, the missions are randomly generated which significantly prolongs the fun.
