Warframe, a game which was first released in 2013, did not launch with an expensive cinematic intro. Six years later it’s got one, courtesy of director Dan Trachtenberg. If the name doesn’t ring a bell, he’s the man currently trying to get the Uncharted movie out of production hell.

Here it is, running for over six minutes:

I’m fascinated by this. We’re well and truly in the age of games never dying/coming back from the dead, from Fortnite to Rainbow Six Siege, but a game getting its fancy cinematic intro six years after release is something else entirely.

It’s not live in the game yet; players will see it turning up either later this year or early in 2020.

DISCUSSION

warframe is the ultimate scrappy little guy that everyoen coutned out, and instead it got better and better as the developers showed absurdist levels of pluck and kept going. It was weirdly helped by two thematically similar huge games coming out(loosely, space opera with magic, insane hand to hand combat and lotsa lazers and funny looking power armored heroes.) it seems like every screw up of destiny and anthem just made warframe look that much better by comparison.
