    Warframe coming to Nintendo Switch

    Canadian developer and publisher Digital Extremes has revealed that Warframe is in development for Nintendo Switch thanks to a partnership with Panic Button. The news comes from this year's TennoCon - the third annual convention for the game.Warframe is a third-person, free-to-play online action game set in an evolving sci-fi world, giving players the chance to master the Warframe armour as the enigmatic Tenno, a race of ancient warriors who are awakened from centuries of cryo-sleep by the mysterious guide, Lotus. The game features more than 35 unique Warframes, hundreds of weapons, and thousands of customisation options, as well as upgrades, a flexible mod system, and the ability to join clans, nurture pets, and explore massive new open worlds.
    The game was originally released on PC back in 2013, arriving on PS4 and Xbox One shortly after, and has seen regular updates and tweaks since then to keep things fresh. Being the ambitious title that it is, it comes as little surprise that Digital Extremes wanted to get Panic Button on board with the Switch version - Panic Button's recent ports of DOOM, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus and Rocket League have all impressed so we're feeling hopeful for another success story here.

    Of course, Panic Button recently teasedthat a major Switch port would be announced this month, and it seems like we now have our answer as to what that game is. No release window has been confirmed for the title just yet, but here are a few screenshots of the game to tide you over.

    This is pretty cool. I tried this game out, and I liked it but I didn’t put much time into it. The Switch has me playing games I usually wouldn’t play on regular consoles, though, so I’ll give it a go. My buddy was a kickstarter founder or whatever and his name is actually in the credits. I’ve also been tirelessly trying to convince him to buy a Swtch, so maybe this will be what does it. It’s not quite as big of a game as I was hoping Panic Button was working on, but I am sure this won’t be their last project.

    Awesome. Warframe is one of the best F2P games out there. It's top notch. Hopefully they keep the F2P model. I'll never forget when Angry Birds came to the Wii U, and instead of being free, like on Android, it was $50.

    Fortnite is still F2P on Switch IIRC, so no reason they can't do the same here.

    Don't know what it is, but I might try it out.

    It's becoming more of a trend now on the Switch, so I think it will be F2P.

    Yeah, but the other console versions of Angry Birds cost money as well, right? I mean, don’t get me wrong, $50 is ridiculous for that crap. Still, I don’t think we will see that happen with this game on the Switch. I believe it’ll stay free just like Fortnite. I think it does have micro-transactions, though.

    Yeah, it does have microtransactions. But my oldest son has played it a lot, and says you can get the full experience without ever needing to spend money. You might need to do a little more grinding, or not worry about extra stuff. From what he says, it has a great single player experience as well as multiplayer. I've been meaning to download it on my PC, but I've never gotten around to it.

    What a surprise that it has microtransactions. The new era never ends.

    It's a free game and it's possible to play it without ever spending money. It just takes a little grinding. In addition I've heard only good things about Warframe. If it were a paid game is I'd say you have a point but in this case is I'd say the business model is fair

    I agree. I don't have any problem at all with a free game having optional microtransactions. The devs did a stellar job working on this game, and they have to make a living somehow. I agree that if it were a paid game, it would be a different story. But I don't have any problem with free games doing it.
