Warframe to Celebrate Their 5 Year Anniversary
That is right folks, Warframe, the online PvE and PvP free to play game, is celebrating a whopping 5 years old this week. What is surprising is that the crew at Digital Extremes, in London, Ontario, did not expect the game to last as long as it has. When the game launched it was only a 750MB install, had only one level, and there were only 13 Warframes for players to choose from. How things have changed, as there are currently 34 Warframes and a BOATLOAD (caps added for emphasis by us here at XBA) of content.
Since it’s launch there have been quite a few stats collected, and a few stats noteworthy and included here in this news article are as follows:
- Players have crafted 52,972,344 Warframes and 234,766,197 weapons.
- Players have assassinated Captain Vor, the game’s first boss, 53,117,969 times,
- Players have been part of 41,765,109 Stalker eliminations
- Finally, players have accumulated a total of 136,747 years, 49,912,765 days, 1,197,906,351 hours playing Warframe.
What is interesting about this is that Steve Sinclair, Warframe Creative Director, said that even though they didn’t expect the game to last ever half the time it has, "There is still so much left to do... together", and they will continue to experiment and develop more gameplay opportunities.
