I didn't see a topic on this game yet, and since I've been playing it a TON lately I thought I'd see if anyone else here on Neowin was playing. Or wanted to play, since you can get a beta key for the game pretty easily from lots of places right now.

To make a long story short here's what Warframe is: A 3rd Person Co-op focused multiplayer shooter being made by Digital Extremes (yes, that Digital Extremes aka the guys who made Unreal 1 etc with Epic) using their own in house custom built engine that looks as good if not better than some of the other AAA engines on the market. It's basically a Cyborg Space Ninja themed game. Dudes look like cyborg ninjas and the game takes place in the future where some race has more or less screwed up Humanity and only a weird off shoot of Humanity is left and they try to, oh whatever the story doesn't matter lol

You can use a primary weapon such as an assault rifle or shotgun, and a secondary like a pistol. But you also get a sword (or stave depending on your warframe etc) and can cut enemies in HALF. You can charge melee swings for even more HALFNESS. You also get powers, again depending on your frame. The default frame is basically an all rounder, but does massive melee damage with his basic power. It's pretty sweet stuff regardless. There's a crafting system in game though it's pretty basic right now. Since a few patches ago, random events take place (though they are basically the same missions from the rest, just an alert status mission) that when you complete you get extra credits. It's F2P so there are microtransactions of course. Nothing Pay2Win though. However, the revive system is part of this. You get 4 revives a day, then you have to pay to get more, or just forfeit the mission you were in. Teammates can revive you an unlimited amount of times however, and it doesn't count towards the 4 a day count. There's a lot more I could list, but walls of text are annoying :D

The game is GORGEOUS. Runs smooth as butter maxed out (ymmv though of course), and is a fairly small download for the amazing visuals and what not. I think my initial download/install was around 800 megs. The DE guys patch it frequently (today they had 3 patches!) adding in new content as well as polishing the game and fixing bugs obviously.

In any event, my in game nick there is lordloc, so if you are already playing it, feel free to add me to your contacts list so we can slice and dice and shoot weird aliens and what not together :)

https://warframe.com/ is the main website.

You can get a key from a ton of places right now. www.mmobomb.com has them, www.incgamers.com has them, IGN had them as of a couple of days ago but I don't know if they still do.

I'd post links better (and put some videos in the post) but for some reason my browser isn't loading up the editor properly and whenever I put tags in the browser is just removing them...spooky.

For those that can't get a key, for whatever reason, I do have a few keys I can give out. I think I have 3 or 4 extra keys right now. Don't quote me on that one though, and DON'T PM me for one, I won't answer them. If you can't get a key, and want one, post in this thread.

I haven't played it beyond the training but from what little I played, the performance was great. They managed to make the game look good and perform well at the same time. Their upcoming Star Trek game should run just as well because it uses the same engine. For those that want a beta key, you can get one at MMO Bomb: http://www.mmobomb.c...frame-beta-keys

As of this post, they have about 3.5K keys left.

Yay someone posted! I didn't want to bump the thread, so I had to wait for someone to post. I was getting worried no one was ever going to Anaron :D

Wanna play at some point sir?

Has anyone here even looked at the game? Gone to their website, anything?!! I have 7 or 8 extra beta keys in back up just in case.

http://www.freemmost...-beta-giveaway/

http://mmohuts.com/g...ta-key-giveaway

http://www.mmorpg.co...s.cfm/offer/406 (over 8,000 keys here)

Those guys have keys also still.

Hopefully someone, someplace, somehow on Neowin will check the game out and maybe stuff will happen!

The IncGamers link doesn't require registration so that's good for people that want a beta key immediately. Not that it would kill you to register an account in 5 minutes or less on any of the other websites.

It looks like an interesting game but they need to do more at generating interest for it. The fact that a lot of places haven't run out of keys isn't necessarily a bad thing, but I'm a little surprised. For example, one of the websites you linked has over 8,000 keys.

Anyway, I'm interested in trying it out soon. I'm currently devoting my gaming time to Dota 2 with my friend but I think I can play sometime this week.

EDIT: Here's a beta key...

Yeah, I imagine Digital Extremes will ramp up PR for the game once the game gets more content and polish. Not to mention closer to being fully released into open beta/launch state.

I played a little but I'm just having a hard time getting into betas when I'm still playing so many already released games, so I got rid of it for now.

Do not like the missions that take four people to complete. Good luck getting the people needed in the first place.

Well it IS a coop focused game. And there are plenty of people to play with, I've never had a hard time getting a 4 man mission going. You can also set your region easily in the options menu if it's deserted in your time zone but not zombie time say in Europe or Oceania etc. And with all the people coming in from the various beta key giveaways there's more and more people to play with.

Waaaaait a minute...we completely forgot about this topic?

 

This game has gone from pretty decent to damn good :) 

 

I'm loving the current event they're running: Corpus vs Grineer, and you choose who to side with...if you side with the Corpus you prevent the Grineer from gaining more worlds but lose the Tenno in cryostasis, if you side with the Grineer you prevent the Corpus from acquiring them.

 

It's actually completely unexpected.  And weird fighting with armies you've been putting the smack down on all this time.

 

Lots of new weapons since then too.  I hadn't played in a while but my brother was home for a bit and we were in there...much enjoying it.

Yeah not sure why this hasn't been a more popular thread to be honest. It's a popular game on Steam (and in general) so I'm gonna guess that some Neowinians play it :D

 

With all the updates recently, not to mention the content added - the game is really shaping up to be a winner all the way.

I could have sworn there was another thread on this game before... I'm pretty sure I remember reading one about how Warframe is going to be a PS4 launch title.

They just opened up more battlegrounds in the new war.

 

This is so weird haha.  I hope the Grineer get their asses handed to them.

To me it looks like nothing more than running and shooting. Never really managed to force myself to try it out.

As are most shooters.  It's good with family/friends.  I wouldn't play it much without em.

I hope it's the other way around. I want the Wraith Machete. Way more badass then a glorified stick.

Well, events over.  I finally have my clan base equipped with a research lab, so I'll have new weapons soon.  =)

 

This thread could probably be moved to GH to accommodate the upcoming PS4 players.
