Free-to-play online games have a huge fan base today. Gamers don\u2019t have to invest any money in them if they choose not too, yet still, they get to have some great experiences. One of these games that has built a huge following over the years is <i>Warframe<\/i>.\r\n\r\nIt was first introduced in 2013, and right out of the gate, it was clear the developers at Digital Extremes had a hit on their hands. The gameplay is surprisingly fluid for a free-to-play online game. Moving about the stage with your selected space ninja feels so good.\r\n\r\nThe combat system is also a shining aspect of the game. You have a bevy of weapons to choose from, whether you\u2019re looking to pick off enemies from a distance or take the fight to them with a melee weapon. Jumping and shooting have never felt so much fun.\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/m.youtube.com\/watch?v=Zbw9p4q82b8\r\n\r\nEven the progression system keeps you constantly engaged. Every mission completed is one step closer to a better costume, upgrade, or weapon. Even though this game has done really well, Digital Extremes isn\u2019t resting on their laurels. They\u2019re continuing to make this game better and better with every update.\r\n\r\n2019 seems to be a pivotal year for <i>Warframe<\/i>. Some major updates were announced at TennoCon 2019, an annual event that\u2019s based entirely off the <i>Warframe<\/i> franchise.\r\n\r\nStarting off, a new cinematic sequence is being added to the game. It\u2019s designed to help introduce players to the backstory of the ever-expanding universe. We\u2019ll get a deeper look at events that set the stage for where the story is at currently.\r\n\r\nA new open-world setting is also coming in an update. It should give players more areas to explore and quests to go on. Also, a new cinematic quest is being added.\u00a0A new threat has come to Earth, which pits the Tenno and Lotus against a much greater threat. What that threat is still remains unknown.\r\n\r\nLast \u2014 but certainly not least \u2014 we got a sneak peek of the new mode called Empyrean. It enables a squad of players to man a ship against other AI and opponent ships. It is a lot like the upcoming space MMO, <i>Starbase<\/i>.\r\n\r\nYou\u2019ll have the chance to upgrade your ship, customizing it with different parts and colors. Teamwork and strategy seem to be central to winning these spacecraft battles.\r\n\r\nIf you haven\u2019t had the chance to check out <i>Warframe<\/i>, now may be the perfect time thanks to these upcoming updates. They seem to be taking the gameplay and story to new heights.
