The Warframe Switch edition isn't the only major news to emerge from Digital Extremes this week. What's more, as players are launched into space, they'll be able to take part in new ship-to-ship battles.

KitGuru Says: The Switch is getting some great ports as of late, and this will please several Warframe fans that would love to play the game on the go. Panic Button, the studio responsible for porting games to Switch like Doom and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, has partnered with Digital Extremes to bring the hit cooperative, sci-fi action game over to the Switch. Waking from cryo-sleep, you're tasked with trying to restore order to the solar system, using your Warframe armour and hundreds of weapons with thousands of customisations to try and do so. Similar to the gathering bazaars of Cetus in Plains of Eidolon, Fortuna is an underground hub city that serves as a factory to clean coolant rivers and doubles as a trading hub for the region.

The news was announced at TennoCon 2018, the third annual Warframe convention. A new teaser trailer shows off the setting, along with some of the enemies players will face. Call up this handy customizable hoverboard and quickly glide, jump, and trick across a variety of terrain.

There is a huge collection of Warframes and Weapons and all of which (Except one Prime Warframe) can be unlocked without the player having to spend any real money allowing a true free-to-play experience. Players are given the option to engage in PvP (player versus player) matches and PvE (player versus environment) matches.

The popular free-to-play title was previously released on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, and has notched up an impressive 38 million players worldwide since its open beta back in 2013. Codename: Railjack is looking to be a little smaller of an expansion than Fortuna, but no less exciting.

The initial announcement of the game was made at this years TennoLive 20189 - free-to-play titles still have a questionable reputation among some players who believe such games often lack imagination and content. Take out their core reactors, eliminate their crew, and emerge victoriously.
