Warframe, a third-person sci-fi multiplayer game, was launched via Windows PC in beta form in March 2013, before hitting PS4 as a launch title in November 2013. It's described by Digital Extremes as "high-tech machine-gun ninjas set in a far-future, over-hyphenated, Manga-Dune mash-up".

Players control ancient warriors who are members of a group called the Tenno. They have woken from centuries of cryosleep to take part in a massive war with three other groups: the Grineer (a race of humanoid clones), the Corpus (a corporation specialising in robot and laser technology) and the Infested (disfigured victims of a deadly virus).

The Tenno make use of a special form of exo-armour (a Warframe) to help them take on their enemies.

The Xbox One version, which was first announced at E3 2014 back in June, will be available to Gold subscribers only.
