Warframe is a game that’s grown from humble beginnings into a major success for Digital Extremes, and at TennoCon, the third annual Warframe convention, the developer announced that they’re bringing it to Nintendo Switch.
The game, currently available for PS4, Xbox One and PC, is being ported across by Panic Button, who’ve shown their technical nous with ports of Doom, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus and Rocket League.
Warframe is an online co-op action game, where you become of the the Tenno, a race of warriors that battle with both blade and gun. Waking from cryo-sleep, you’re tasked with trying to restore order to the solar system, using your Warframe armour and hundreds of weapons with thousands of customisations to try and do so. You’ll be teaming up with other players to do so, joining clans and exploring open worlds as you do so.
Being free to play and on multiple platforms, you might expect Digital Extremes to wade into the current bickering over cross-network multiplayer, but the company have avoided this so far. Their support pages state that “Warframe accounts cannot be transferred between platforms or people,” and there’s been no indication that this would change any time soon.
