Warframe is Coming to Nintendo Switch

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

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.
