Warframe is celebrating its 6th anniversary with its annual tradition of giving away free stuff, including a new skin for the Liset lander.
We cover a lot of games here on TheGamer, but one game that doesn’t get nearly as much coverage as it deserves is Warframe. For years now, Warframe has quietly been gaining momentum, gathering up players, and slowly but surely branching out into every console under the sun.
Last year, Warframe came to the Nintendo Switch in a move that was so technically amazing that we’re still not quite sure how it was done. Warframe is not a light game by any means--some of the latest open-world updates can tax a mid-range PC--but it runs so smoothly on the portable system that it boggles the mind.
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg for Warframe’s global expansion. Just this March, Warframe’s total player base grew to nearly 50 million players--the highest it’s ever been--thanks to massive expansions that add open-world combat and massive, raid-style boss encounters.
Developer Digital Extremes isn’t slowing down. They plan to add more space combat later this year with the Railjack expansion, remaster Jupiter’s Gas City map, as well as adding ever more Warframes and weapons for players to gobble up and master.
It’s almost Warframe’s 6th anniversary, and in keeping with tradition, the game will hold a 2-week long celebration where every player gets showered in goodies.
First, there’s the free weapons: the Dex Furis dual pistols, the Dex Dakra dual swords, and the Dex Sybaris rifles will be available to anyone who can complete the relatively simple in-game challenges. New players will definitely want to pick these up as they’re powerful items you can’t get at any other time. Veteran players too will want these items even if they have them from previous years as they come with free weapon slots, which normally have to be paid for using real cash.
The Excalibur Dex skin returns from last year to pimp our everyone’s favorite ‘Frame, as well as the Dex Nouchali Syandana so you can all have a cool cape.
This year sees two new additions: the Dex Liset skin for your lander and the Excalibur Dex Noggle, which is basically like an in-game bobblehead decoration. You get both of these just for logging in, with no challenge required.
The celebration starts on March 27th and ends April 10th, so be sure to log in during that time to collect your rewards. And if you’re on the fence on Warframe (or are maybe looking of jumping ship from Anthem), now is the perfect time to start.
