Digital Extremes announced today that its cooperative online hit Warframe has reached nearly 50 million registered online users on its sixth anniversary, making 2018 its biggest year of growth to date. To celebrate the occasion, it is giving birthday gifts to all Tenno for free this Wednesday, March 27, including a brand new exclusive Liset (landing craft) Skin, last year’s amazing Dex Excalibur skin, and all its previous anniversary gifts.
According to the press release, in 2018 Digital Extremes’ flagship title saw unprecedented growth as players dug into 111 hotfixes and 26 updates, played Warframe for the first time on Nintendo Switch, and tuned into TennoLive and its Devstreams in record numbers. As a result, Warframe grew from 38 million registered online users in March 2018 to nearly 50 million in March 2019, its largest yearly registered user growth yet.
In addition to record breaking signups, Warframe also reached new peaks for daily active users (DAU) and monthly active users (MAU) in 2018. TennoLive 2018, Warframe’s annual keynote at its fan convention TennoCon, grew from 16,000 views in 2017 to 413,000 in 2018, a 2,481.25% increase, making Warframe the 14th highest concurrently viewed game on Twitch in 2018.
This year, Digital Extremes already has launched two major updates with many more in the works. In late February, Nightwave kicked off the company’s first-ever cross-platform content update that refreshed Warframe’s Alert System with seasonal, story-based content and rewards. Two weeks later the dev team turned around and gave Tenno Operation: Buried Debts, the second massive update to Fortuna that introduced Hildryn, Deck 12, and an all new boss fight.
Warframe’s dev team is currently deep in development with the Plains of Eidolon Remaster and Gas City Remaster updates — two gameplay and graphical overhauls that renew both areas — and exciting, game-changing updates like The New War and Railjack.
