On September 20 Steve Sinclair, Digital Extremes' creative director, tweeted out that its third-person shooter MMO Warframe had just gotten faster, decreasing latency by one millisecond to be precise. That was thanks to the work of Panic Button, an outside studio that in the last few years has focused on porting other companies' games (Rocket League, Wolfenstein II) to the Nintendo Switch. Panic Button has spent the last nine months helping Digital Extremes do the same for Warframe, making small improvements along the way that ended up benefiting the game on PS4, Xbox One, and PC as well as Switch.


Fortuna was released yesterday on PC, and is expected to arrive on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in the near future. It's too early to know whether Fortunat rights some of the wrongs made by last year's expansion, Plains of Eidolon, when it first released, including it felt too isolated from the rest of the game. What immediately stands out after a few hours with Fortuna is how much more interesting and exciting the presentation around it feels.


This year, game players have learned many uncomfortable truths about video game crunch. If what happened on the Warframe subreddit in the runup to the increasingly MMO-ish co-op shooter’s latest expansion is any indication, we’re starting to see players push developers to take better care of themselves, even if that means slower game releases.


Warframe will get two expansions over the next two years, developer Digital Extremes said this weekend. The first, called Fortuna, includes a new cyberpunk-themed open-world area on Venus and will arrive before the end of the year. The second, planned for 2019, is an entirely new mode, currently called “Codename: Railjack”, that will let teams of players crew warships in space in the vein of Sea of Thieves.


You can have a damn good time on the PS4 without spending a dime thanks to a number of free-to-play games populating the PSN store. Some of these free offerings rival what you'd expect out of a full-fledged $US60 ($80) game, if not surpass them. Here are our picks for the most worthwhile F2P PS4 games.


The shooter MMO Warframe recently added fishing to the assortment of activities you can spend your life grinding through. The fish are big and beautifully weird and can be turned in for various rewards. They also like to warp space and time and render themselves immune or sometimes swim through solid rock.


Before there was Destiny there was Warframe. The two games share a lot of the same elements - a lot of loot, ornate costumes, and sci-fi stories that make no sense - but Warframe has something Destiny doesn't: Amazing pets.


In the distant future of Warframe, you are a space ninja who has woken from a long slumber to find the solar system in disarray. Armed with a variety of exciting powers, you must fight an army of decaying clones, tech-minded science jerks, mutant freaks and other awesome enemies. The entire game is free to play, but it's so good that I spent over a hundred bucks on it and don't regret a cent.
