Digital Extremes to port Warframe to Nintendo Switch

Digital Extremes Partners with Panic Button to Bring Warframe to Switch - Warframe

Digital Extremes Partners with Panic Button to Bring Warframe to Switch - Warframe

Digital Extremes and Panic Button have been quiet regarding the details of the port, but we can at least expect it to resemble the console variants to a fair degree.

The initial announcement of the game was made at this years TennoLive 20189 - free-to-play titles still have a questionable reputation among some players who believe such games often lack imagination and content.

Doom and Wolfstein port developer Panic Button has partnered with Warframe's developer, Digital Extremes, to make this transition happen.

2K Games confirmed the move in an official statement issued earlier, which followed weeks of speculation after the platform was omitted from press releases announcing the development of WWE 2K19.


Warframe now has more than 38 million registered players worldwide, and if you're not familiar with the title, here's a bit more detail.

The Warframe Switch edition isn't the only major news to emerge from Digital Extremes this week.

Warframe is a third person sci-fi shooter, where the warframes are alien armour that now come in 35 different varieties. The game will be released for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC on October 9th. Warframe is also known for it flexible mod system, the ability to join clans, and massive open worlds.

Not too long ago, the Nintendo Switch's library grew to include the likes of Epic Games' wildly popular multiplayer sandbox survival title, Fortnite, which led to owners of the Big N's hybrid mobile console giving the game's player base a big boost. Reviewer Chris Watters wrote: "Some problematic menus pale in comparison to Warframe's real problem: a pervasive tendency toward repetition".
