The constantly expanding online free-to-play shooter Warframe is heading over to Nintendo Switch, developer Digital Extremes announced at TennoCon 2018. Having found critical acclaim on the PC in the last few years, and more recently, on PS4 and Xbox One, Warframe is expanding further so now gamers on Nintendo can enjoy it as well. The free title features fluid movement, excellent shooting, diverse crafting depth, and since 2017, large open areas, with another one slated to release later this year.
The Switch port is being worked on by the Panic Button studio, known for releasing Rocket League, Doom and Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus on Nintendo’s home console. Warframe will take a graphical hit to run smoothly on the Switch, as in its gameplay structure, high framerates are much needed over extensive texture detail. The game will be free-to-play as it is everywhere else, although microtransactions will be included. Playing Warframe some time ago, I never encountered issues with progression, which is never hindered if you don’t pay any money for in game currency. The release date isn’t known just yet, but expect it to show up on Nintendo’s eShop sometime this year.
