Free-To-Play Warframe Will Be Ready For PlayStation 4 Launch

It's not necessarily my type of thing, but another confirmed game for the PlayStation 4 is certainly good news.

IGN has confirmed that Warframe, the "space ninja co-op game," will launch alongside Sony's new hardware this year. Yep, sounds like a launch title, and it'll have a free-to-play, microtransaction-based model similar to that of the existing PC version. That's to be expected, of course.

From Digital Extremes, the studio that brought you the original Unreal and The Darkness II, Warframe has been described as something that would appeal to Phantasy Star Online fans of old. Creative director Steve Sinclair said it's basically like "Mass Effect meets Ninja Gaiden," which sounds like a really intriguing concept. As for this new partnership with Sony, Sinclair said it was attractive because Digital Extremes would retain control of the game. This is contrary to what Microsoft would've wanted.

"Sony has been incredibly supportive and available and [PlayStation 4], in my opinion, is incredible to develop for. It is awesome, and I don’t want to speak disparagingly about any existing or prior platforms, but we showed Warframe for the first time to our entire studio, and everyone had their jaws on the floor, how 1080p, silky smooth and beautiful it was. So, I’m really, really enjoying working on the machine.

Their attitude, their support and their willingness to work with us to get on the console is an incredible opportunity for a studio like ours."

The Dual Shock 4 will have "special functionality," too, so get ready for a bit of a twist on the standard control you may have encountered with the PC version. And here's a peek at the game if you're not familiar:

I predict a disaster with this thing.

Anybody else see that DOA5 is making a F2P model?

From what I've heard of people who have been playing the beta, it's a really fun game. It's more about working together than competing against each other.

This game is out on the PC and it isn't a disaster. It is a very cool fun and unique co op game.

With all the updates and patches the PC version got the PS4 version will launch in really great shape.

The game is a third person shooter, but you can wall run, knee slide, dive roll, dive shoot and more with each warframe. Then different warframes have different abilities some of which are similar to Mass effects classes, but a lot of them are just unique and cool.

Plus every frame gets a sword and you can play without shooting if you want to be a samurai.

Free Realms, DC Universe Online, DUST 514, Planetside 2, and now this.

The Playstation brand is on a roll with the free to play model isn't it?

There is one thing you can't have to much of on a gaming console........GAMES! F2P or not the more options the better. With all the MMO announcements for the PS4 Sony is sure riding the positive momentum.

This game is a blast on the PC. I think it might actually be better on the PS4 only because the game is one of those games that would feel better with a controller.
