Warframe gets a next-gen console reveal, director tells PC players just to dial-up their settings

Today saw a 'next gen' reveal for Warframe on PS5, the free-to-play smash that's been ever-evolving since its 2013 launch. As you can see it looks very shiny, boasts improved load times, and by now is basically the game that Anthem wants to be when it grows up.

Warframe is one of those games that has carved out a unique path, and it says everything that Sony is trumpeting the arrival of a seven year-old F2P game on its new system. But there's something undeniably amusing about a flashy reveal where the upshot is, basically, it's the PC version with maxed-out sliders.
