Warframe open beta weekend starts

Several months ago, developer Digital Extremes announced their first entry in the growing free-to-play PC game market with Warframe. The developer has now opened up the game for anyone to play it for the first time with its first open beta weekend.

The beta will last from now until Tuesday, February 19th and gamers can simply sign up for a free account and download the beta build. The game itself is a bit different than the many free-to-play shooter games out there in that its not a FPS title but a third person game that has a big co-op element. Up to four players take on a number of uniquely generated missions with a mix of combat combined with other objectives.

The "Warframes" themselves are basically characters inside power armor but players can move more swiftly, and with a variety of combat moves. While this is a free-to-play game you can also purchase new warframes, weapons and items from the game's market with real money.

So far, Digital Extremes has yet to say when the game will officially launch. The developer is also working on the upcoming Star Trek action game, based on the current movie franchise, that will be released in late April a few weeks before Star Trek: Into Darkness hits theaters.

I highly recommend you guys play this game. It's insanely fun (though it is a bit of a grind at this point since not much content is in, and some of the blueprints etc have to be farmed right now) and looks stunning. The devs from Digital Extremes listen to us the players who are playing their game and implement changes based on our feedback. In fact they just added wall walking/jumping and a few new acrobatic moves.

Highly, highly recommended game. My nick in game is lordloc if you want to add me and play some coop goodness
