What is Warframe?

Warframe is an online action game published in 2013 where players become space ninjas tasked with battling foes, completing quests, and gathering resources to build epic armor and weapons.

Did I mention there are also unique powers for each suit of armor, called Warframes, and the game is free to play with free expansions added regularly?

Or that the game can be played solo, in groups, with friends or strangers, and supplies a multitude of modes and special events for players to experience?

Warframe is truly an ambitious game that you must try out.
