Playable Demo Debuts at Electronic Entertainment Expo June 11-13th
June 5, 2013 – London, Ontario – Digital Extremes announced today that Warframe®, the fastest growing Free-to-Play game, is coming to the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system this fall. The sci-fi third-person action game that challenges players to release their inner ninja will debut with a playable demo at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), June 11-13th.
“The fact that we’re developing Warframe for the launch of the PS4 this fall is unbelievably awesome,” said Steve Sinclair, creative director at Digital Extremes. “The irony is not lost on me that our original sci-fi concept for this game was the first ever seen footage for the PS3 generation that never came to fruition until now. Exciting times are ahead with this next gen transition.”
As a co-op focused game that thrives on community and clan-building, Warframe will take full advantage of the social connectivity and community building features coming to the PlayStation®4 system. Some of the features involve the new enhanced DUAL SHOCK 4 controller that offers integrated audio, touch-pad controls and gameplay streaming capabilities. Additionally, 2nd screen functionality will come in the form of an Android and iOS App calledWarframe Nexus. This companion app will allow players to perform in-game tasks and provide pertinent real-time game info while away from the PS4®system such as alerts to critical missions, crafting and building inventory, and scheduling gaming sessions with friends just to name a few. Many of these features will be demonstrated during E3.
Players are introduced to Warframe as newly awoken Tenno warriors, thrust into a universe at war and armed with ancient exo-skeletal technology only they can operate. These Warframes bring unimaginable power and skill to the Tenno and provide players with unique offensive and defensive powers to explore and master. Players go solo or band together in squads of 4 to complete co-op based raids to locate ancient artifacts that will help customize and upgrade their Warframe and weapons.
More information on Warframe for the PlayStation®4 system will be revealed in the coming months. In the meantime, visit www.warframe.com to stay up to date on the latest news.
With video game sales in a slump – down by 11% from a year prior according to some reports – as well as the lackluster debut of the new Nintendo Wii U titles, with only Super Mario really selling well, are gamers ready for the next generation of consoles?
Well, the new PS4 might be here sooner rather than later as the Gamespot Magazine, Game Informer, says the PS4 is “gaining steam.”
In their latest issue, which was sent out to households this week, Game Informer says we might be getting an announcement for the PS4 before E3 2013.
Citing multiple sources, VG247 says that developers have been receiving PlayStation 4 dev kits, with the final version expected some time next summer. Furthermore, U.S. developers have met with Sony, which is briefing them about the system, codenamedOrbis. The machine is said to have, among other features, a Blu-Ray drive and a new user interface that lets you use the system’s menu (like the PSN store) without having to quit out of your game. The system is expected to be announced right before E3, which is in mid-June.
Among some of the more prolific PS4 rumors is that the new system will be made available for Christmas 2013, will feature 4-D and 3D graphics, will not be backwards compatible with thePS3, and will attempt to eliminate the second-hand video game market of trading in games, going some sort of digital route similar to PC.
