Warframe is Coming to Nintendo Switch

Panic Button picks up another Switch port as Warframe teases futures expansions and updates.

News by Mike Williams, .

Today at TennoCon, the annual Warframe convention, developer Digital Extremes announced that Warframe will be coming to Nintendo Switch. Panic Button, the developer behind the Switch ports of Doom, Wolfenstein: The New Colossus, and Rocket League, will be handling the process for Warframe.

"With more than 38 million registered players worldwide, the cooperative, free-to-play hit Warframe is a third-person online action game set in an evolving sci-fi world soon to be available on Nintendo Switch. Warframe gives players the chance to master the Warframe armor as the enigmatic Tenno, a race of ancient warriors wielding blade and gun, who are awakened from centuries of cryo-sleep by the mysterious guide, Lotus, to restore order throughout the Solar System," said Digital Extremes in a synopsis of the long-running free-to-play title.

Digital Extremes did not give a concrete release date for Warframe on Switch.

The developer did use TennoCon to announce Fortuna, a new expansion that takes the series to Venus. The previous expansion, Plains of Eidolon, offered an open-world map and Fortuna will continue that idea forward. Obs Vallis is the new map's name, featuring new factions, new enemies, and the all-new Bondi K-Drive, a customizable hoverboard players can unlock.

Digital Extremes also showed off a future update called Codename: Railjack. The update will allow up to 4 players to board an Archwing starship, head into space, and do a bit of piracy. There will be PVE combat against other ships and players can board those ships to destroy them from the inside. Railjack is planned as a seamless experience, letting players transition from the open-world map to space without any loading screens.

Fortuna is coming later in 2018, while Railjack does not currently have a release date.
