Warframe confirmed for PS4, will remain free-to-play

Warframe, the free-to-play co-op shooter from Digital Extremes, is coming to PS4 with the same microtransaction-based model, Creative Director Steve Sinclair tells IGN. Warframe is currently out on Steam for PC. It's a third-person sci-fi shooter that pits groups of players against invading enemies, with distinctive ninja overtones.

"We hope we can make [free-to-play] attractive for the console audience," Sinclair says. "Instead of dropping 60 bucks on a six-hour game, [a person] might drop a few bucks here and there on our game, which gives some of our players 500 hours of entertainment."

Digital Extremes is the Canadian studio behind the Unreal series, The Darkness 2 and the recent movie-inspired Star Trek.
