Warframe celebrates five years and 38 million players

Warframe continues to defy expectations for online gaming playerbase sizes. A year ago, it boasted 30M registered players. As of today, it’s up to 38M. Not too shabby, but then, it took home the staff’s and readers’ awards for Best Not-So-Massively Game of 2017 for a reason. Worth noting is that while Digital Extremes is celebrating the game’s fifth birthday, it’s still technically a soft-launched beta. Weird, right?

Warframe humbly launched its Open Beta program on PC March 21, 2013. Since that date the free game-as-a-service title has earned 38,083,936 million registered online users across PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One – 8 million more than last year at this same time,” DE says today. “And in that time Warframe players have done extraordinary things. They have crafted 52,972,344 Warframes and 234,766,197 weapons. They have assassinated Captain Vor, the game’s first boss, 53,117,969 times, and been part of 41,765,109 Stalker eliminations. And they have accumulated a total of 136,747 years, 49,912,765 days, 1,197,906,351 hours playing Warframe.”

The fifth anniversary site is expected to be live tomorrow; players will be invited to “share their five-year journey with other community members by learning unique Warframe factoids, discussing their favorite moments, watching new videos, buying cool commemorative gear, and maybe even unearthing some free in-game items.” Maybe it’ll even launch! Nah.

In other Warframe news, Noclip – that’s the Patreon-based video production org – has released a trailer for its upcoming documentary on Digital Extremes and its popular MMO. Enjoy!

38 Million registered Losers as told by Space mom

*for those out of the loop Space mom AKA The Lotus AKA DE Rebecca accidently called the player base Losers when she was trying to say Users during a stream*

I love how this game is still not fully launched.

Metrics! I wonder how many times the Jackal has been killed? I feel like I racked up an easy 10,000 times trying to get Rhino Systems.

And worth every one of them. Rhino has spoiled me from playing as any other Warframe. I feel too squishy! I think I was just meant to play beefy tank-frames.

Rhino is a lot of fun, and I also prefer tanky frames. Inaros is also in that group, though I prefer Nidus (though that one is a little fiddly, tank-wise). I recently obtained an Oberon Prime, so that’s next up on my learning list.
