Press X to Ninja: Warframe on PS4


Steve Sinclair's Avatar Posted by on Jun 05, 2013 // Project Lead, Digital Extremes

Do you like Ninjas? What if they were in space? What if you could slash enemies, blast them with guns and obliterate them with crazy exo-armor powers? Would you like to level-up, build a Space Dojo with your friends and hang out, dueling each other and trading wall-running stories? Good news! Warframe is your ticket to all of that and its coming to PlayStation 4, for free, at launch! Not only that… we’ll be showing the world Warframe on PS4 next week at E3 (gulping Tums as we speak)!

Warframe on PS4

Our team has been polishing the demo and cramming in as much as we can to ‘wow’ everyone who gets there hands on it at E3! On Friday we showed the rest of our development studio Warframe on PS4 for the first time and the reaction was unanimous – 1080p Warframe is smooth and beautiful! Like kids with new toys, playing with the PS4’s toolbox of goodies has our minds spinning with design ideas for Warframe…

Warframe on PS4

I love the DualShock 4. The triggers feel awesome and the touch pad is a sweet addition. Right now, we’re using the touch pad to activate your crazy Warframe powers on the run with a flick of your thumb or finger. Want to lunge and smash with your Rhino Warframe? Swipe your thumb up on the touch pad and you’ll charge like a battering ram into a group of helpless enemies.

Warframe on PS4

One of the cool things about Warframe is the Alerts system – throughout the day, missions of opportunity come up and players can squad-up for stellar rewards. To get these notifications when you’re away from the system, we have created an iOS and Android Companion App called the Warframe Nexus. Players can customize their alert settings to show them only the missions and rewards they’re interested in, and while it’s very useful, it’s only the beginning for the Nexus.

Well, I’m off to play the latest build and get my Ninja on (the start screen on our demo literally says “Press X to Ninja”). I hope you check out our new trailer and stay tuned for more details throughout the summer on Warframe!

Sooo Coool!

I’m really loving how the PS4 is going to launch ready to go with games. You don’t even have to go out and buy any if you don’t want to because you can just go home and download all the F2P titles. So much great support for the system.

But of course…. I’ll still get the other launch games. =p


+ TiagoPT on June 5th, 2013 at 5:16 pm said:

Lookin’ good.


+ DarkOne_PR on June 5th, 2013 at 5:21 pm said:

IS it true that the ps4 will have some sort of DRM? Pls dont pull a microsoft sony!


+ i_will_wow_u on June 5th, 2013 at 5:22 pm said:

This is already really good on pc but I can see it running much more smoothly on ps4, can’t wait.


+ Nooterman on June 5th, 2013 at 5:22 pm said:

Solid trailer. I’ll definitely be downloading this and giving it try when it comes out for PS4.


+ lele1620 on June 5th, 2013 at 5:25 pm said:

so will this be a cross platform playable game with steam like portal 2 is
which would be good if so this would put a dent into Microsoft
and will there be DLC content from the original and new


+ Shadow_Kamui on June 5th, 2013 at 5:26 pm said:

This game looks nice I will definitely tried out when I get my ps4.

How many classes you have on the game?
The video show 4 if I am not mistake.


+ GeoDarky on June 5th, 2013 at 5:27 pm said:

awesome can’t wait to sink deep on this, Thanks Sony & DE for bringing Warframe to PS4


+ sn00zer92003 on June 5th, 2013 at 5:28 pm said:

Any comment on fps/resolution?


+ BLKPoison on June 5th, 2013 at 5:30 pm said:

Looks good


+ wilfareus on June 5th, 2013 at 5:30 pm said:

really hope Sony bundles (within the PS4 HDD) all these F2P games.
save some gamers the hassle of downloading them and they may be more inclined to try X)

but this is sweet X)


+ desquicie on June 5th, 2013 at 5:31 pm said:

Looks pretty cool. I think it’s an amazing time to be a playstation user. PS4 promise to be awesome and the PS3 is getting amazing tittles and i like the ps+ service. I will get the PS4 as soon as i can. Can´t wait for the E3 conference.


+ dyiing4life on June 5th, 2013 at 5:36 pm said:

It’s good to hear that the game will run on 1080p on the console. No point in putting PC titles on next gen if they will still have so many limits. Hopefully we can also get 60+fps?


+ Gadirok on June 5th, 2013 at 5:38 pm said:


I still will check this and PS2 when it comes out. Thanks for supporting next-gen consoles!


+ lele1620 on June 5th, 2013 at 5:38 pm said:

with all these amazing games hoping the PS4 comes with the Seagate Momentus hybrid HDD they go up to 1 terabyte with all these good games were gonna need the extra space


+ Istyle318 on June 5th, 2013 at 5:41 pm said:

This game makes me happy my time was approved to be off from work this week


+ Elvick_ on June 5th, 2013 at 5:42 pm said:

So it’s primarily co-op right? If I got that right, then I can’t wait to try this out. I love co-op focused games.


+ YungShep on June 5th, 2013 at 5:46 pm said:

day 1 with my ps4 will be truly remarkable…playing a portion of the game while it downloads in the background instantly eliminates further anticipation! like everyone else, i’ve heard really good things about the pc version post launch..

for everyone else, some compare it to mass effect & ninja gaiden if they had a baby..the name would of been WARFRAME. at least that’s what im told, lol. i cant run it on my pc, so ps4 it is :)


+ Mobius2525 on June 5th, 2013 at 5:54 pm said:

Can’t wait.


+ RenderMonk on June 5th, 2013 at 6:11 pm said:

Really impressive stuff guys. That looks like crazy fun times. Also glad to see it’s free!! Thank you for all your hard work to bring us NEW IP. I’ll take new IP over series iterations any day of the week. Can’t wait to see this at E3. Looks great!


+ snakeeyes211 on June 5th, 2013 at 6:24 pm said:

Wow awesome game
I am PS4


+ Xcaligamer1 on June 5th, 2013 at 6:40 pm said:

nice, this is what I had hoped for. I mean having a F2P game available day 1. I’m still getting launch titles but this will surely hel sales. people wont have to worry about just having to buy one or two retail games. They also get full scale experience for free


+ LURKING_WOLF on June 5th, 2013 at 6:46 pm said:

ps4 getting pc games is amazing xbox one got nothing on ps4 keep it up! ^_^


+ Anddo on June 5th, 2013 at 6:46 pm said:

+ CommandingTiger on June 5th, 2013 at 7:10 pm said:

Amazing graphics, great that it’s free.
Story and characters however, is unapealling to me right now.
Much rather see some humans, so I’ll wait to see more info and trailers.


+ SolidSnakeOld on June 5th, 2013 at 7:31 pm said:

Steve i enjoyed Dark Sector, when are you making a new one? Or a new game? I know the ps4 is easier to develop for this time around than the ps3 was. I hope to see more games from Digital Extremes!!!!!!!!!!


+ Zindakuyl on June 5th, 2013 at 7:31 pm said:

I would love this!


+ LURKING_WOLF on June 5th, 2013 at 7:46 pm said:

+ ToxaCIassico on June 5th, 2013 at 7:46 pm said:

Will the ps4 version have tessellation enabled and higher res textures than it’s pc counterpart? I would love if you gave us the specifics. Game looks great.


+ Berae on June 5th, 2013 at 7:56 pm said:

+ D-Squad3 on June 5th, 2013 at 8:06 pm said:

+ XxDG3K_ALL_DAYxX on June 5th, 2013 at 8:14 pm said:

Sony was not playing when they said this is a console for gamers! :) Can’t wait to see what else is coming to PS4!!! Good job guys!!!!!!!!!!!!


+ ltn2150 on June 5th, 2013 at 8:17 pm said:

+ Kid_Grim on June 5th, 2013 at 8:37 pm said:

+ ps_n_blog_ac on June 5th, 2013 at 8:39 pm said:

+ freshprincepbg on June 5th, 2013 at 8:51 pm said:

+ PrinceofXIII on June 5th, 2013 at 8:52 pm said:

+ FeddeCampo on June 5th, 2013 at 9:07 pm said:

Great looking!, will be awesome :)


+ Bloodios on June 5th, 2013 at 9:41 pm said:

This and PlanetSide 2 are both free and available at launch. Seriously folks, I know just have to get that PS4.


+ aznexcav on June 5th, 2013 at 10:07 pm said:

Wow……… Now I’m even more excited for the ps4


+ jimm on June 5th, 2013 at 10:16 pm said:

Dark Sector was fun and had awesome elements. Does this tap into the same universe as Dark Sector? Tenno’s suit looks almost the same.


+ jimm on June 5th, 2013 at 10:22 pm said:

Actually I think I answered my own question, Hayden Tenno was the original protagonist in Dark Sector. Thank you Digital Extremes for bringing back this series / storyline!


+ NYPUNK88 on June 5th, 2013 at 10:41 pm said:

Whoa! Nice visuals. Can’t wait to try this out! :)


+ zztoluca on June 5th, 2013 at 10:53 pm said:

Love it on PC. Glad to see it coming to PS4 as well with the same F2P model.
I hope or characters will be able to cloud sync or something. I would hate to not have my Excalibur character on the PS4 version.


+ Elvick_ on June 5th, 2013 at 11:00 pm said:

@39: wat… the first PS4 game shown was a New IP and exclusive… Knack.

And, no it’s not exclusive. It’s out on PC now, not sure if it’s still in beta or not… but it looks pretty dope.
