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
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
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.
