Warframe, Digital Extremes' free-to-play third-person shooter included in the PlayStation 4's launch lineup, is offering players a head start on collecting gear and goods with special pre-order incentives, according to a post on the PlayStation Blog.
Digital Extremes associate producer Pat Kudirka wrote that the pre-order packs are being offered as a way to help players get into Warframe more quickly. Players who pre-order Warframe before Nov. 12 will get early access to the Ultimate Fan Pack. This bundle includes a PlayStation-branded Braton Rifle weapon skin, 50 Platinum and 20,000 credits, Warframe's in-game currencies. These currencies can be used in Warframe's market to purchase items and upgrades.
It's worth noting that both the full version of Warframe and its pre-order are free, so pre-orders will simply ensure the game automatically downloads to players' PS4 on launch day. Players can currently pre-order through the PlayStation Store on the PlayStation 3 or through the SEN website.
Kudirka added that Digital Extremes has added much new content since Warframe being shown at E3 2013, including new planets to explore, multiplayer modes and weapons. Post-launch content for the title will be regular and released in a manner similar to the way updates rolled out for Warframe's PC beta.
Kudirka noted that the team still [has] "a few surprises lined up" as we get closer to PS4 launch day on Nov. 15, including more details on the story and world lore of Warframe.
