The PlayStation Twitter account has just revealed an interesting fact about F2P title Warframe on PS4.
this game looks pretty fun
It is very fun. Shame more AAA titles aren't as polished as Warframe.
And if I am mistaken, its still in beta. With this, DCUO, and Final Fantasy 14, I havnt played anything else but DS2 this year. Gotta play Child of Light...but when?
This game sucks.
This game rules.
its not really. very repetitive and lots of micro transactions
Not to mention a BS lvl 30 cap
yeah but you dont have to spend any money on this game at all, everything is obtainable by farming, however, if you want something quickly then yes, the option to spend money on it is there. great game overall though, yes there are few issue with the game, but DE supports the game very well. im addicted it to it.
You forgot to add optional to the micro transactions. You don't have to spend a single penny to get anything and it doesn't take long to get stuff.
Sounds like you haven't played it much. There are very few things you cannot get from just playing the game. Inventory slots is probably the biggest exception. You can get all the characters without spending a dime, and they have implemented a trade system that allows you to sell and trade items with other players for platinum, the game currency used to buy everything, even inventory slots, so you don't even have to pay money for inventory slots anymore if you sell stuff to other players for platinum. DE even throws catalyst and reactor blueprints out there once in awhile for free through alert missions or via login bonuses.
Jeez, so much hate on Warframe. Warframe is probably among one of the best F2P games I've played. Though it can get repetitive, and the lack of a vast assortment of enemy types and maps does make this more repetitive. But the constant upgrading and building your character and weapons keeps me coming back for more. Oh, and of course the constant updates which add new weapons, warframes, missions, etc. to the game is a huge plus. I'd say if you hadn't played it, at least give it a shot if you have any interest in it. P.S. When the full game finally releases (still in beta) they plan to merge both PC and PS4 servers, so that'll be interesting when that happens.
I played it first on PC ( might go back ) I get major lag on the PS4 version but it is fun, and looks amazing.
its fun but lobbies i get into always lag its annoying
Its lame. Its like a pay to win android game with ninjas. Wouldnt waste mytime or money when better ps4 games are comming.
Netflix was the most downloaded app last gen too on all consoles. Pretty interesting that a movie and TV app dominates all consoles in downloads. As for Warfare, pretty strong case for more free to play games. I know they dominate mobile, looks like they are just as popular on consoles. Not sure how I feel about that haha.
I would have thought that was because back then people differentiated between games and app(lications). Seems nowadays if it runs on some kind of electronic device and "does something" that makes it an "app". Well, I guess...
Yeah, they are all labeled as applications these days. Games are just a category. Which does make sense : )
I love Warframe. It's my go-to game when I want something quick and fun.
Warframe is awesome...great co-op play, with tons of weapons that have their own personality. "its not really. very repetitive and lots of micro transactions" Just about every game online feels repetitive, and the microtransactions are completely optional, can unlock everything in the game by playing it. "Not to mention a BS lvl 30 cap" Every frame and weapon in the game caps at L30...the system is designed so you can reset everything and build unique frames and weapons using mods. I've played Volt 3 times to build his shields up to 1100, HP to 960 with a very high damage output and speed build. Warframe is a fantastic game to play online with friends and many others around the world. I recommend it to anyone that loves co-op 3rd person shooters. Also, 1.7 PS4 owners play Warframe...great community, full of players all the time.
Would you mind existing how you got your shields and HP up that high? XXXD I've only just got my Excalibur top lvl 30.
Once you reach L30 the first time...there is an item in the store known as (Forma), it allows you to reset your frame or weapons back to L1. By doing this, it also allows you to change a polarity slot to your liking. When you level up mods, it raises the cost to use them on your frame and weapons, which also brings up (Orokin cells). (Orokin Reactors) double the points you use on warframes. (Orokin Catalyst) double the points you use on weapons. Same rule applies to both warframes and weapons...level mods, use (Orokins) to maximize points on both frames/weapons...this is how you can reach full potential. Also, I find it easier and more effective to level mods of the same kind at the start, then continue to use fusion cores to max them out. One other thing, both formas and orokin units have blueprints that drop in game. Buying them on the store will cost 20 platinum each. You can trade for 'em on the auction house or farm 'em on tier 3 void missions. Think they have at least 30% drop rate...could be wrong, but I do know they have the best chance of dropping from tier 3 missions. There are so many mods in the game, that you'll hardly ever see a frame and weapon of equal skill and power. All frames come with 4 abilities each, you don't have to use 'em all, using a forma allows you to change one of those slots or more to a different polarity slot, making most slots passive. Say, you wanna make a (radial blind) and (radial javelin) build...you have to level him to L30 2 more times to change the other 2 ability slots for passive use. One forma allows you to change one slot at a time. So, figure out your play style, and build him up...this is how you maximize your warframes and weapons to take on higher levels. Tier 3 survival...my longest play time is up to 60 minutes, on Trinity(6 forma build)...freakin awesome! Good luck to ya!
Wow! Thanks for the in depth reply. XXXD Have some bubbles.
This game is actually quite good, it's not very beginner friendly and can give you the wrong impression at first. I know it did with me. I originally played it on PC and didn't like it at all. Then I decided to give it another try on PS4 and learned how everything worked, then once it all clicked I ended up putting over 200 hours into it. It's actually less repetitive than any competitive FPS I've ever played, there's so many unique weapons and frames with their own unique abilities to play with I always felt like I had something new to do. And I did all of this without paying a single cent up until the 60 hour mark. Which is more time than I put into a lot of AAA $60 games. And I didn't even NEED to put money into it then. I just decided that they deserved the support at that point for actually pulling off an actual F2P game without excessive grinding and not feeling like it's P2W like so many others do. Also the community has been great. I run into a lot less assholes than I do on other games. My friend list just about doubled from this game because I met so many great people instead of constant yelling and insults.
I started on PC a long time ago, but I got fairly frustrated because the text is so ridiculously tiny through a home theater system. It's silly that this was a major obstacle, but it's not fun when you can't read anything in a game with RPG elements. They've made several massive changes since I first started playing, and I played it a ton when it came to PS4. I'm at MR14 now on PS4 and trying to get back into the PC version a bit, although I really wish I had the event mods for status weapons (on my PC account; I have just about everything available on PS4).
Warframe can seem repetitive to the new player, but its actually very deep once you start to find out about blueprints, rare mods, secret areas, and the like. It's a grinder's dream. Games that focus on farming aren't for everyone. I love Warframe though. But on a side note, it crashed back to back in me since the new PS4 update. Anyone else?
Congrats Digital Extremes. Liked Dark Sector a lot.
You can get the glaive in Warframe. :D
Yeah, Dark Sector was pretty awesome back in the day.
This game is so fun but I hate waiting for the next update
I can't think of many games I've played that has had more frequent major updates than Warframe. U13 completely overhauled the entire melee system, and the previous update really wasn't that long ago.
I really didnt care for this on PC, any changes specific to PS4 or something? Is it just because its free and people want a game to play? I would have preferred more powers from the dark sector origin game. Even though that game was lack luster, the dismemberment was fun.
A free to play game does not bode well for this industry. I don't want my system cluttered with free to plays and cell phone games or just any plain indie game.
So.....Don't download them?
Cool. Don't play them.
For the people that are talking bad about warframes micro transactions, know this- You can get almost ANYTHING on warframe for absolutely free and on top of that the best things in the game are free. No question. Just like on Need for Speed games and other games that are not F2P, the micro transactions are time savers. You don't buy expansion packs on warframe like you buy car and track expansions or map and weapon expansion. Every update, every new warframe, every new planet and game type is there for you free of charge. You just have to work for it. And not an insane amount either. Just know what you want and what you need to get it. Need nano spores to build that slick new warframe? Look at the solar system and see where it drops. Want that cool laser firing weapon? Get its name, ask in the in game chat rooms where the parts drop or go online and find out. Now go farm it, get it and not spend one red cent. If you want to skip all the leg work, then by all means spend real money but don't harp on the game for that when all you spent was $5 where on Battlefield you payed $60 for the game and then $5 JUST TO UNLOCK THE PISTOLS! In the time it takes you to unlock all the pistols in say COD, you could have several Warframes, weapons, and probably have Forma'd.(think of it as prestige, only you are even STRONGER as you level up again) Anyway, I've been playing Warframe since the PC beta and I love it on PS4 especially when the versions are in sync and I can play on PS4 with my PC friends. The only thing warframe fails at is its tutorial because it explains damn near nothing. Add me on PS4 and I will get you sorted. Careful though, once you understand it you might get hooked.
