Developer Digital Extremes, the creators of Warframeannounced a new MMO: soul frame. As Warframe, soul frame will be a free open world game. This brand new IP was revealed during TennoCon 2022 this weekend with a flashy cinematic trailer.
soul frame is described as being in early development. Given that, it’s not too surprising that the reveal didn’t come with a confirmed release date. At this time, Digital Extremes has refrained from giving an idea of when soul frame will be launched, so it could still take years. Don’t be surprised if soul frame isn’t playable until late 2023 or even 2024. MMORPGs take a long time to develop, and this shouldn’t be an exception.
So what do we know of soul frame? Like many other MMOs, soul frame is a fantastic game: expect mystical and magical powers. In addition, it will be a bit of a deviation from Warframe. More specifically, the battles of soul frame should be more rooted and slower compared to Warframeis a quick action.
The Big Surprise of TennoCon 2022
With its name and emphasis on slower action, you’d be forgiven for thinking soul frame is a Soulslike game. However, creative director Steve Sinclai has publicly stated that the dark souls series “is not an inspiration” for soul frame. That’s not to say that certain elements won’t be borrowed, but deep down it’s something different. There’s a market for a Soulslike MMO, but it’s always nice to see Digital Extremes doing their own thing.
TennoCon is the annual convention for Warframe and digital extremes. Its primary objective is to Warframe community to meet and have fun. Although this year’s event remained digital-only and focused on big announcements. Those who purchased the digital pack received a wide variety of items to use in Warframeincluding the TennoCon 2022 Operator Suit Pack.
