Press release:
LONDON, ON – March 13, 2018 – Independent Canadian developer and publisher Digital Extremes is kicking off the fifth year of evolution and growth for its free-to-play, cooperative online action game Warframe® starting today. To commence Warframe’s fifth birthday, Digital Extremes will launch a microsite (to go live Wednesday, March 14) to celebrate all things Warframe. Eager Tenno can 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. Come celebrate with us!

Regularly appearing in the top 10 most actively played games on Steam, 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. In that half decade, Warframe has won numerous game-of-the-year awards, including last year’s 2017 Steam Labor of Love Award, hosted a real-world, in-game “Nuptia” wedding, held two TennoCon conferences, launched its first open-world expansion (Plains of Eidolon), and significantly updated more than 22 times.

warframes five year milestone

“Warframe” has come a very long way since its 2013 launch. So I think it’s safe to say that Digital Extremes hard work, dedication and determination really made wonders for the game. So DE sure deserves all the success that they’ve gotten with “Warframe”, because they truly deserve it.

And in that time Warframe players have done extraordinary things. They have crafted 52,972,344 Warframes and 234,766,197 weapons. The 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.

“Can it really be five years? When we started Warframe it was a 750MB install with one level,” said Steve Sinclair, Warframe Creative Director. “We had no expectations it would endure even half as long. But you, our Tenno, showed up and guided us and gave us hell! With your support we’ve continued to grow and experiment and with your blessing we’ll continue to do just that. There is still so much left to do… together. On behalf of the team here at Digital Extremes, thank you Tenno. See you at Tennocon!”
