Have you ever dreamed of zipping up a space ninja suit, pulling out a machine gun, then running up some walls while shooting robots? This is the promise of Warframe, a third-person free-running shooter developed by Digital Extremes.

With Warframe, they’ve added some MMO-style looting, crafting and social mechanics to the mix to create a sense of community and progression. The game is currently listed as being in open beta, a status it’s been in for almost a year.
