Free-to-play games still have a questionable reputation amongst some players, but Warframe is one game that everyone praises for its fairness and its vast amount of content. And now it’s coming to Switch.

The port will be carried out by Panic Button, who have already weaved seemingly impossible magic by getting Doom, Wolfenstein II, and Rocket League working on Nintendo’s diminutive console.

Their version of Warframe was announced at TennoCon, the game’s third annual convention, and follows other free-to-play titles such as Paladins and Fortnite onto Switch.

Warframe is a third person sci-fi shooter, where the warframes are alien armour that currently come in 35 different varieties.

There’s also hundreds of different weapons and thousands of customisation options, that allow you to mod the equipment however you want.

What’s really endeared Warframe to fans though is how reserved it is about microtransactions, with no need to spend any money on anything unless you want to.

There’s no release date yet for the Switch version, but you can always get a head start by downloading the game for free now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
