Regularly appearing in the top 10 most actively played games on Steam, Warframe humbly launched its Open Beta program on PC March 21, 2013.

In that half decade, Warframe has won numerous game-of-the-year awards, including last year’s 2017 Steam Labor of Love Award, hosted a real-world, in-game “Nuptia” wedding, held two TennoCon conferences, launched its first open-world expansion (Plains of Eidolon), and significantly updated more than 22 times.
And in that time Warframe players have done extraordinary things. They have crafted 52,972,344 Warframes and 234,766,197 weapons. The have assassinated Captain Vor, the game’s first boss, 53,117,969 times, and been part of 41,765,109 Stalker eliminations.

Steve Sinclair, Warframe Creative Director, said:
“Can it really be five years? When we started Warframe it was a 750MB install with one level. We had no expectations it would endure even half as long. But you, our Tenno, showed up and guided us and gave us hell! With your support we’ve continued to grow and experiment and with your blessing we’ll continue to do just that. There is still so much left to do… together. On behalf of the team here at Digital Extremes, thank you Tenno. See you at Tennocon!”
