It seems that more and more, having some kind of mobile presence is the future for the biggest games out there, with even giants like Elden Ring potentially getting the Genshin Impact treatment. Right now, though, Digital Extremes has announced that Warframe is coming to iOS, and it's not actually very far off its release - you'll be able to play the long-running live service title on iOS devices February 20, now just a couple of days away. As detailed by Digital Extremes in a blog post, this port offers "more than 10 years of Warframe content," in a "faithful mobile format you need to experience to believe." Important to note is that if you're a longtime Warframe player, and you want to make the jump to mobile, you won't need to start over - Warframe has cross platform save, meaning if you like to play it on say PC and PlayStation, you can switch between the two platforms while retaining your progress. This cross platform save feature is staying with the mobile port too, so you'll be able to play the game pretty much anywhere now (unless you were already playing it on Switch, which kind of let you do that anyway).

In a game renowned for fast-paced action and cutting-edge style (pun entirely intended), the samurai archetype fits like a glove - especially because the game's poster child, Excalibur, is indeed a sword user. However, it looks like a Japanese-inspired Warframe isn't in the works at the moment, but a few others are. Read the rest of the story...

And this year, DE proved that last year was no fluke and once again set a new all-time peak for Warframe on Twitch with 417k live viewers tuning in to see what’s next for the popular free-to-play game and pickup free in-game content. In addition to a slick new intro cinematic from Dan Trachtenberg (10 Cloverfield Lane, Portal’s No Escape fan film), at this year's event, the devs also revealed two new Warframe suits and more gameplay for their upcoming free Empyrean expansion -- which they described as “Space GTA” with “Star Wars Battle of Endor moments.” But of course, what most tuned in for (as indicated by the spam of “!nekrosprime” text in chat) was the free Nekros Prime in-game Warframe suit that unlocked for viewers who watched for at least 30 consecutive minutes. Pulling in close to a half million viewers is certainly an impressive stat for a loot shooter on Twitch. Despite Warframe still remaining in Steam’s top 10 most played games today with over 100k players at times, the loot-grinding genre isn’t anywhere near as popular on Twitch with games like Warframe, Destiny 2, and Borderlands 2 usually averaging only a few thousands concurrent viewers each day. By maintaining a great relationship with their fans and hosting weekly Devstreams on Twitch, Digital Extremes has been one of the best developers at utilizing the popular streaming site to engage with their current player base and increase awareness of their game for potential new players. Considering that Warframe is also usually cited by gamers as one of the best free-to-play games, it’s no wonder that their team has figured out how to give away even more free content to keep players and viewers coming back for more every year.Warframe’s Fortuna Update Sets New All-Time Peak Player Count Record for the Game on SteamNov 12, 2018 - GitHypReleased back in 2013, Warframe’s player base is still growing with each new update that developer Digital Extremes releases for the free-to-play sci-fi shooter. Just a few months ago, Warframe’s highly anticipated story update, The Sacrifice, pushed the game to a new peak of 129k concurrent players on Steam. Before that, the game’s huge open world ‘Plains of Eidolon’ update spiked the player base to a record of 122k players at the time. Now, one year after PoE, Warframe is still going strong with its latest update ‘Fortuna’ that has once again set a new all-time peak of 132k concurrent players over the weekend on Steam. Warframe's increase in players comes as no surprise after we reported that viewer counts for the game's TennoCon event back in July were up 25x compared to last year on Twitch. Similar to the Plains update which introduced an open world environment for players to fly around and hunt new objectives in, Fortuna brings new ‘K-Drive’ hoverboards to the snowy landscape of Venus and its mysterious underground cybernetic city. Of course, as with every big Warframe update, there’s even more new content that has resulted in the game’s growth in players such as the ability to design and build new weapons and robotic companions, new enemies and bounties to capture, and a new blood-based Warframe by the name of Garuda. Considering the game's age, Warframe’s continued growth has exceeded expectations and is proof that free-to-play games can be embraced by the PC and console gaming communities if done right by the developers.Warframe’s TennoCon 2018 Had 25 Times the Number of Viewers on Twitch Compared to Last Year’s EventJul 9, 2018 - GitHypMost Warframe fans would agree, last year’s ‘Plains of Eidolon’ announcement at TennoCon marked the game’s biggest and best moment since it launched five years ago. But while last summer’s open-world reveal was a pivotal moment for the game, the live stream didn’t draw much attention on Twitch with a peak of only 17k live viewers and 33k concurrent viewers a few days later via popular streamer Lirik's channel. This year’s third annual event, however, had more viewers than ever who didn't want to miss out on the excitement of TennoCon. So many in fact, that Warframe’s 414k concurrent viewers was enough to make it the most watched game Saturday on Twitch -- and the second most watched game this week right behind Fortnite. Compared to last year, TennoCon 2018 brought in 25 times the number of viewers – or an increase of 2335% people watching on Twitch. Saturday’s peak also crushed the game’s previous peak of 88k viewers back in October 2017 when the Plains of Eidolon expansion officially launched. One of the reasons for the stream's success was the developers at Digital Extremes enticing their fans to watch on Twitch by giving away free loot drops. Those who tuned in for thirty consecutive minutes with their Twitch and Warframe accounts linked were rewarded with a Ash Prime in-game Warframe. The increase in viewers also reflects Warframe’s growing popularity on Steam. The free-to-play game's player base also saw a huge spike during PoE’s launch, peaking at 122k players in October. And more recently brought in 129k players last month for the latest ‘Sacrifice’ story update. With a new city, hoverboards, and ship-to-ship combat all coming soon in the 'Fortuna' update, this year's event certainly did not disappoint its new fan base. And with the developers’ continued support and even more players soon on Nintendo Switch, TennoCon is quickly becoming another can’t-miss annual event like BlizzCon and E3. Edit: We originally reported that the viewer count was up 13 times compared to last year, however, viewer counts for TennoCon 2017 were lower than we first thought. The 33k concurrent viewers were actually for a Lirik stream a few days after TennoCon and Digital Extreme's live stream only brought in a total of 17k concurrent viewers.
