It’s free to play and it’s now available to download from the Epic Games Store starting today right through to December 24th!
Taken from Engadget … Digital Extremes’ free-to-play online shooter Warframe is available right now on the Epic Games Store, complete with a bundle that adds weapons from the Unreal franchise to the carnage. Warframe has been available on Steam and consoles for years, but the Unreal Tournament Weapon Bundle will only be available via the Epic Games Store for a limited time. It’ll eventually come to consoles, but it doesn’t look like Steam is going to get this one.
Current and new players can get the bundle for free by downloading Warframe from the Epic Games Store, where it’ll be available today through December 24th at 11:59pm ET.
Warframe has been an odd omission from the Epic Games Store, considering the significant history between Digital Extremes and Epic. They’re co-creators of the Unreal franchise, while Epic CEO Tim Sweeney and Digital Extremes CEO James Schmalz have been working together since the shareware days of the early 1990s. Epic Megagames, the name of Sweeney’s company about $15 billion ago, published Schmalz’s Solar Winds and Epic Pinball in 1993. By 1998, Epic and Digital Extremes had launched the original Unreal.
