Warframe Approaching 50 Million Online Users
Once again Tenno, this news is for you.
Digital Extremes is humble, yes, we said humbled. Why is that you ask. Well, their cooperative online game 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 years amazing Dex Excalibur skin, and all its previous anniversary gifts.
Want to know more? Ok, here we go.
The year 2018 was explosive for Warframe as it was a title that 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 our 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, Warframes 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 (stats).
This year, Digital Extremes already has launched two major updates with many more in the works. In late February, Nightwave kicked off the companys first-ever cross-platform content update that refreshed Warframes Alert System with seasonal, story-based content and rewards. Two weeks later the dev team turned around and gave players Operation: Buried Debts, the second massive update to Fortuna that introduced Hildryn, Deck 12, and an all new boss fight.
Warframes dev team is 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.
