Warframe. It looks very promising....


Before go further, you should know that this isn't game review or anything. I found this game and I'm trying to figure out what kind of game it is so I can make decision for to play or not to play.
And I'm interesting to know about why so many people like the game.



Impressive game trailer and...

I just found out about Warframe and watched trailer:


and I was like 'wow'.

More surprising thing is this trailer was from 2013.


So I googled about it and found wiki article.
Warframe is a free-to-play cooperative third-person shooter video game developed by Digital Extremes for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
quote from Wikipedia Warframe

Huh? Game trailer was really impressive graphics and story. And it was 'free-to-play' game?


I didn't get what 'third-person shooter' means, at the time. But I am not fan of first-person shooter game so this game probably wasn't for me.
So I just decide to know more about the game.



Interesting story behind the game.

So I read a few things more from that wiki article.
Warframe received mixed reviews by critics, holding the score of 68/100 on Metacritic, based on nine reviews.
but
The game is among one of the most-played games available on Steam.
and
More than 26 million players have played the game upon launch.
quote from Wikipedia Warframe - Reception section.

That's quite interesting so I did check the 26 million players part's original source.

What I like is this:
I will quote some part from The story of Warframe: how a game no publisher wanted found 26 million players @ July 15, 2016 by Tom Marks
Despite its large player base, Warframe's success remains low-key. A lot of people haven't even heard of the game nearly four years later, and Digital Extremes recognizes that.
....
For one, Digital Extremes doesn't do much large-scale marketing for the game
26 millions players are playing. But it still not many people even knew about the game. Because they didn't spend money for marketing.

For example, they held a panel at this year's PAX East but didn't actually have a booth on the floor like many of the game's competitors. "If we had a big booth, would that make it seem like we're more real?" Carter asked. "But that flies in the face of what Steve was talking about before, which is we're not going to spend money there, we're going to put everything we can into the game."

And I love very last part. 'they were going to put everything they can into the game'.
No wonder, game received very and very positive from user reviews.

Above was screenshot of Warframe on Steam.
Overall: Very Positive - 91% of the 135,616 user reviews for this game are positive.
Recent: Very Positive - 88% of the 4,299 user reviews in the last 30 days are positive.



Not a fan of first-person shooter game. But maybe....

It looks good and user reviews also very positive.
Now I'd like to see what it's like playing in the game. So I googled it and found this.



I already told you that I am not a fan of shooter game and something I felt this game wasn't for me.

But after watching that--this is game's new open world game expansion, I might interest. Because adventure and exploring is my favourite game genre.



Oops. I just realised that I haven't check the game website--Warframe.
It's free. So you can easily try out yourself--available in PC-Windows, PS4 and Xbox.
If you decide to try it out, you can read quick start guide from Warframe website.
