Warframe is a popular free-to-play online video game. Developed and published by Digital Extremes, the game is set in a futuristic fantasy world. It allows players to control members of the Tenno, who are a race of ancient warriors who have awoken from a century-long cryosleep.

Now, they find themselves at war in the planetary system with various factions, including the Sentients, Corpus, the Infested and  the Grineer. During the battles, the Tenno utilize powerful bio-mechanical suits, called Warframes. These suits allow them to channel their unique abilities and skills.

The game consists of various quests and missions for players to complete. Even though the game’s missions use procedurally-generated levels, the newer updates have included massive open world areas. It also introduced some story-specific missions with fixed level design.

Players should remember that even though the game is free-to-play, it is supported by microtransactions. This mean that they can purchase in-game items using real money. However, it also offers the option to earn the items through grinding.

Warframe features elements of role-playing, melee games, parkour and shooting. These elements allow players to advance their Tenno with new and improved gear. Additionally, the game includes both player-versus-player and player-versus-environment gaming modes.

New players will start out with a silent pseudo-protagonist, which is a Warframe. The character has supernatural agility and special abilities. Additionally, he or she has a selection of basic weapons and a space ship called the Orbiter.

The objective at this point is to explore the Star chart. As players progress in the game, they take control of the Operator. It is the true Tenno protagonist in physical form and is no longer silent. The Operator features additional abilities, including Transference and Necramech.

In the Orbiter, players will find a console. On it, they can select any of the available missions to them. It is important to note that the main missions require players to complete specific missions in the Solar System. Only when it is completed can players have access to other planets or locations.
