Set in the far reaches of outer space during a new Dark Age, WarFrame introduces the Tenno, a race on the brink of extinction after being enslaved by the Grineer for centuries. Players enter WarFrame on the cusp of the Grineer's victory over the Tenno until they begin to arm themselves with WarFrameS - an ancient exo-skeletal technology only they can operate. Hidden within the Orokin Derelicts of a lost civilization, new WarFrameS lie dormant and undiscovered. These artifacts are the Tenno's only hope for survival.
WarFrame is a fast-action PvE shooter set in an evolving sci-fi world. Some would call it MMO-Lite as squads of four players band together to advance their characters and battle the oppression of the genocidal Grineer. Throughout their combat missions, players will continually increase the power and abilities of their WarFrame and weapons. Players will raid new areas of space searching for exotic and powerful weapons and WarFrame augmentations to customize their arsenal. With WarFrame's Automatic Mission Generator, the game will offer endless replay as levels are procedurally configured for a unique raid -- every time.
Players will be added to the Closed Beta incrementally over the next several weeks to help improve the game and infrastructure in preparation for the official launch of the Open Beta this winter. Additionally, the official Warframe website has gone live, where gamers can learn more about the game and register for the Closed Beta by entering their email address and reserving an in-game alias.
According to Steve Sinclair, the game's Creative Director, the start of Closed Beta for Warframe is a significant milestone for the independent developer. "Obviously we get excited to release all of our games, but Warframe is different. The concept for Warframe has been at the back of our minds for years. We've invested a lot more than just time and work into Warframe and it's going to be so awesome to see a final product made independent of a traditional publisher... and even more awesome to see people playing a game that's come to mean so much to us," said Sinclair.
