Free-to-play games are shaping up to play a huge role in the launch of the PlayStation 4 later this year, which is a smart strategy as it gives early console adopters instant access to games they don’t have to pay for after throwing piles of cash at their shiny new piece of tech.
Zombie Studios is working on a PS4 version of its free-to-play FPS hit Blacklight: Retribution. Sony Online Entertainment earlier today announced that both DC Universe Online and PlanetSide 2 will be making the next-gen leap. Now news has surfaced that another title, Warframe, is joining the free-to-play party. And it will be a day-one launch title.
Digital Extremes is hard at work on a PS4 version of its ninjas-in-space third-person co-op action game originally launched on PC earlier this year. Warframe on PS4 promises to run buttery smooth at 1080p, and will even utilize the DualShock 4′s new touch pad for activating exo-armor powers with quick finger flicks. For example swiping up with the thumb to charge forward into a battering ram attack. Players will also be able to use the Warframe Nexus companion app to monitor game alerts from their iOS/Android devices.
