Warframe is a bit of an oddity in the free-to-play market. While most F2P games focus almost exclusively on competitive multiplayer, Warframe is one of the few to go in the opposite direction. It's a cooperative, third person sci-fi hack-n-slash shootfest. What, that mouthful wasn't enough for you?
In case you've played Warframe and feel burned out on it, chances are you'll want to come back and try it some more now that the recent Update 11.0 has hit Steam. More than simple balance tweaks and bug fixes, Update 11 features new environments, two new playable Warframe archetypes, two new bosses, several new and revamped systems affecting things like trade and damage, as well as a slew of other goodies for those willing to grind or pay.
In case the video diary embedded above isn't enough for you, here's the entire list of changes and additions directly from developer Digital Extremes:
TWO NEW WARFRAMES - VALKYR: Forged in the labs of the Zanuka project, Valkyr was subject to cruel experiments leaving her scarred, angry and frighteningly adept at killing. EMBER PRIME: Ember Prime joins the ranks of Excalibur Prime, Mag Prime and Frost Prime as the newest elite Tenno.
TWO NEW BOSSES - Take down Sargas Ruk and Alad V!
NEW TILESET - The Hunt for Alad V Event will reveal The Corpus Gas City. Exciting new gameplay awaits for all who participate!
NEW DAMAGE SYSTEM - A re-vamped damage system breaks physical damage into puncturing, impact and slashing damage, causing differentiation between weapons and varied enemy resistance. Players will need to get to know the enemy to learn the best way to take them down.
NEW WEAPONS - The double-barreled Tigris Shotgun, the half whip, half taser Corpus Lecta and the Cestra minigun are now available in the Arsenal.
NEW PRIME WEAPONS - Glaive Prime and Sicarus Prime join the elite Prime Arsenal!
NEW RESOURCE DRONE - The Titan Extractor will travel the Star Chart and collect resources for you while you're away from the game.
NEW CODEX SYSTEM - Scans of enemies and objects reveal important information.
NEW WARFRAME SKINS - Eight new Immortal Skins for Warframe customization.
NEW TRADING SYSTEM – Introduction of The Trading Post allows players to exchange goods within the game starting with Mods and Keys.
CLAN DOJO UPDATES - New areas including a Trophy Room, Large Garden, Research Labs and Power Room.
As with all F2P games, Warframe is indeed free to play. Why not go ahead and check it out? I mean, if you're not the kind of person who frowns upon F2P third person sci-fi hack-n-slash spaceninja shooters.
