Warframe counts 30M registered players on its 4th birthday, basically adds bards

Happy fourth birthday, Warframe! It may not be a traditional MMORPG, but it’s still one of those rare online MMOs that’s actually doing better several years in than it was at launch: Digital Extremes is touting 30 million registered users. Actually almost 31 million! (That’s up about five million just since the end of last year.)

To celebrate the occasion, the studio is rolling out the Octavia’s Anthem update, complete with a new warframe, cosmetic outfit capture tools, new weapons, and the new music-themed questline:

“Octavia’s Anthem has Warframe players journeying through an original, lore-driven quest in search of the musically enchanted Octavia Warframe. Along with Octavia comes the introduction of a simple-to-use musical instrument that enables players to compose original songs and synchronize them to their weapons to rhythmically dominate the enemy. Music isn’t just a tool of destruction in this update — players can create musical arrangements in cooperation with other Tenno and trade songs. For story buffs and lore fans, a newly written web comic, entitled What Remains, explores material well in advance of Octavia’s Anthem.”

Yep, Warframe’s basically getting bards.

Anniversary gifts for players are also on deck, so log in and grab ’em… but not before checking out the infographic below! Apparently there’s a new video coming later today too, so stay tuned!

Its not a traditional MMO, because its not an MMO at all! :)

Tried it for a while. Liked stealth gameplay assassination style. Felt like it wasn’t supported with more than half the missions, and if anybody else happened to join the option was going away faster than you could yell “Leeroy!”

Add to that progress being locked behind a massive grind, and issues with the newer player systems on the updated map locking you into needing stuff you couldn’t get because to get it you needed it… and I stopped playing.

Great idea, decent game, but in need of some tuning for a few things for my preferences.

This game is literately unplayable… After a few min of playing I feel very sick, worse than sitting in the very back of the car reading.

Space mum herself said so!

Also, Bardframe hype! Last year my hype went to Vauban Prime and this year it’s on Octavia. Let the rollerball disco of death begin!
