Soulframe, a New Game in the Warframe Universe

Digital Extremes, developers of multiplayer action RPG Warframe, have announced a new game: Soulframe, an MMO that has you going melee, in stark contrast to Warframe’s high-speed shooter gameplay.

The game is still very early in development, but we have been shown a cinematic trailer to get an idea of the vibe we can expect from Soulframe:

The Few Details We Have

In a Washington Post interview, Steve Sinclair (until recently Warframe’s director, now moved to the Soulframe team) previews some of what players can expect from the new title:

  • Procedurally-generated areas where the ground shifts throughout the day, uncovering new things to explore.
  • Large, open-world hub, focus on exploration.
  • World inspired by things like Princess Mononoke and the NeverEnding Story.
  • Focus on melee combat.
  • The world is ‘a little angry about what’s been done to it’, alluding to nature itself having an active role in the story (like shifting the soil around).

Digital Extremes hopes to get the game in players’ hands within a year for testing and informing further development.
