Warframe is a free-to-play cooperative third-person shooter video game developed by Digital Extremes for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. In Warframe, players control members of the Tenno, a race of ancient warriors who have awoken from centuries of cryosleep to find themselves at war with different factions.
In Warframe, players control the members of the Tenno, a race of ancient warriors who have awoken from centuries of cryosleep to find themselves at war with the Grineer, a matriarchal race of militarized and deteriorated human clones built upon metal, blood, and war; the Corpus, a mega-corporation with advanced robotics and laser technology built upon profit; the Infested, disfigured victims of the Technocyte infection, a reference to Dark Sector; and later the Sentients, an alien force of mechanical beings returning from the Tau system after being driven back centuries ago. To fight back, the Tenno use remotely controlled biomechanical suits to channel their unique abilities — the eponymous Warframes. Later missions reveal that the Warframes are actually biomechanical shells which are connected to the consciousness of the actual Tenno, human children who were given unpredictable powers by the Void. Those powers led to them being demonized and they were exiled into stasis pods on the Moon. The Tenno and their Warframes were used by the Orokin Empire in a desperate fight against the Sentients and stopped their invasion. However, for unknown reasons, the former turned on the latter and caused the Empire to collapse. The Empire shattered with the remnants becoming the Grineer and the Corpus while the Tenno were placed in stasis until centuries later.

Players control a member of the Tenno, ancient warriors who have awoken from centuries of cryosleep to find themselves in a war with the Grineer, a race of militarized humans, and the Corpus. The Tenno use advanced armor with unique properties, called Warframes in the war against the Grineer and Corpus.
In Warframe, up to 4 players work together to complete missions such as eliminating enemies or retrieving data from terminals. Players can carry a primary weapon (such as a rifle or shotgun), a secondary weapon (usually a pistol), and a melee weapon. Players are given XP (experience points) for killing enemies and completing missions, which allows them to level up their weapons and armor. Each Warframe has 4 different abilities that can be unlocked through the progression system. When equipment is leveled up, it will unlock mod slots, which can improve or add various stats of weapons and armor, as well as general stat bonuses.
The camera is positioned over the shoulder for third-person shooting, and the player can also jump, sprint, slide, and roll, as well as combine techniques to quickly move throughout the level and avoid enemy fire. Money, ammo, and weapon and armor mods can be found in set locations, such as lockers, as well as dropped by enemies. New weapons and warframes can be purchased in the market, using either credits earned in game, or platinum purchased via microtransaction.
Maps are generated from prebuilt rooms connected together, a method known as Procedural Level creation.
Alert missions are only available for a limited window of time (20-50 minutes), and are fairly difficult, but have special rewards. Most of the time they have multiple objectives, and a higher drop rate for blueprints compared to normal missions. The mission with a question mark as second reward will reward a specific artifact or blueprint.
Capture missions involve the player moving to find a VIP target within an enemy ship while fighting enemies. Once the VIP is located, he can be incapacitated and then dematerialized and captured for interrogation. After the capture is finished, the players must fight their way back to their ship to escape.
Raid missions require the player to acquire a variable number of objects and return with them to extraction.
Rescue missions task the player to find and release a hostage from a jail cell.
Sabotage missions task the player with reaching and destroying the ship’s generator. This sometimes causes instability in the ship activating a timer. If the players haven’t reached extraction before the timer hits zero, you will fail the mission.
Defense missions require players to protect a cryopod from waves of attacking enemies. The cryopod slowly regenerates health. They also have mobile defense in which you have to hack a terminal and defend it for two minutes find and hack the next terminal then defend a cryopod until time expires
Extermination missions involve players moving throughout the level and wiping out enemies. The number of remaining enemies is displayed on the HUD, and the mini-map indicates whether an area has been cleared of enemies or not.
