“Warframe creator Digital Extremes proclaims Soulframe, a brand new free-to-play motion MMO”
Did I get sufficient buzz phrases in that headline?
One massive challenge with writing for Destructoid whereas additionally working a full-time job is that it’s very tough to maintain up with these games-as-a-service titles I like whereas additionally doing all of the critiques, previews, and basic articles which can be of curiosity to me. It’s too straightforward for these video games to fall to the wayside, which is strictly what occurred to Warframe a few 12 months in the past. Regardless of the numerous hours I put into it on Swap, I simply couldn’t catch up and sustain with every part Digital Extremes was placing out. Hopefully, I’ll be higher at managing my time when Soulframe launches.
Simply the most important announcement at Saturday’s TennoCon, Digital Extremes whipped an impressively stunning and cryptic trailer for its Soulframe reveal. Introduced as a free-to-play motion hybrid-MMORPG that takes place in a fantasy setting, this would be the subsequent authentic recreation from Digital Extremes and arguably its largest endeavor since starting work on Warframe. Along with the trailer linked above (which is unfortunately age-restricted), Digital Extremes additionally launched the recreation’s web site with a number of items of idea artwork.
“With Soulframe’s worldbuilding and thematic parts, we’re actually wanting to return to our childhood favorites and pull inspiration from the flowery fantasy worlds that we fell in love with rising up,” Soulframe Inventive Director Geoff Crookes mentioned in a press launch. “Our staff is admittedly on this thought of nature and humanity colliding and we’ll be exploring lots of these themes by our personal lens whereas enjoying with concepts of restoration and exploration.”
Whereas some massive names inside Digital Extremes are shifting over to the Soulframe staff, the developer was fast to substantiate that it’ll preserve supporting, increasing, and updating its flagship title Warframe.
Rather more for Warframe
Talking of Warframe, Digital Extremes shared some new particulars on the extremely anticipated Duviri Paradox growth. Set the discharge on all platforms this winter, The Duviri Paradox begins a brand new chapter of the Warframe storyline with an expansive world and a looping day cycle.
Past The Duviri Paradox, Digital Extremes additionally took time at TennoCon 2022 to disclose Styanax because the fiftieth Warframe, announce the Veilbreaker replace will likely be coming quickly to all platforms, and ensure that Rebecca Ford, the Dwell Operations & Neighborhood Director at Digital Extremes, has taken over as Inventive Director for Warframe as Steve Sinclair strikes over to Soulframe.
Past the Soulframe reveal, my favourite announcement yesterday was the affirmation that neighborhood testing will begin quickly for cross-play. Again when it first launched, I examined the waters of the PlayStation 5 model of Warframe and was utterly blown away by how attractive the sport appeared. After placing a number of hours into that, it was robust to return to the just-okay-looking Swap model. The one drawback is I put a lot time into the sport on Swap, I can’t convey myself to begin from scratch on PS5. That’s an enormous cause why I dropped off it in favor of its opponents. So, the earlier cross-play and cross-progression get right here for Warframe, the higher.
