Soulframe, trailer announces the spin-off of Warframe, a free-to-play MMO action RPG


Digital Extremes has announced with a surprise trailer in computer graphics Soulframe, a free-to-play MMO action RPG, spin-off of Warframe. The video was published on the occasion of TennoCon 2022 and presents what will be the atmosphere of the game, while revealing some of its themes. In particular that of the relationship between the characters and nature, which seems to be central.

Virtually nothing is known about the game, apart from that it is still in the early stages of development. So let's not expect it for 2022, and probably not for 2023 either.

In May 2022, Digital Extremes had spotted the registration of the "Soulframe" trademark. Now that project has materialized and we know what it is. Let's see some images from the trailer:

+2 Geoff Crookes, the creative director, said of the game: "With the world and the thematic elements of Soulframe we are trying to get back to what we liked when we were little and take inspiration from the complex fantasy worlds we fell in love with growing up. Our team is really interested in the idea of ​​making nature and humanity collide and we are studying many of these themes, filtering them with our sensitivity, while we play with the ideas of restoration and exploration. "

What will it ever mean? We'll see when we know more about Soulframe. Making a few guesses, it is likely that like Warframe, Soulframe will also arrive on consoles and PC. If you are interested, there is also an official website where you can go to ... pray to heaven. There is nothing else for now.

Soulframe is open-world, with Elden Ring under ‘conversation’

In probably the biggest announcement at Tennocon 2022, Warframe developer Digital Extremes revealed its next game Soulframe – a Studio Ghibli-inspired MMO fantasy game. Now, further details about Soulframe reveal that it’ll be an open-world game at launch – and From Software’s Elden Ring is “a subject of some conversation.”

One of the major announcements at Tennocon was that long-time Warframe director Steve Sinclair was stepping down in favour of Rebecca Ford. PCGamesN spoke with Warframe’s new creative director about the open-world The Duviri Paradox expansion, but Sinclair isn’t leaving Digital Extremes – instead, he’s heading up its new game Soulframe.

In an interview with the Washington Post, Sinclair confirms that Soulframe’s hub world will be open, unlike early Warframe. “I’m chasing that ‘short session but high immersion’ thing where you sign in and you come out of your yurt and you are where you last signed off,” the director confirms. “The world feels like it’s been going on without you.”

Despite the game’s title, Dark Souls “certainly isn’t an inspiration for the initial ideas or what we wanted to do” with Soulframe, Sinclair adds. However, From Software’s more recent Elden Ring “has absolutely been a subject of some conversation,” such as regarding the camera or “how excellent their combat pacing is.” As Sinclair admits, Elden Ring “was absolutely fantastic.”

You can get a taste of the combat in the initial trailer above, but Soulframe is still a long way off. While the team wants to be open, especially with the leadership change on Warframe, Sinclair agrees “it’s way too early to announce Soulframe, actually!”

However, it’s possible that fan testers may be able to play Soulframe within a year, alongside early development streams. “Watch us make the game and get your hands on the rough bits and tell us how you feel,” Sinclair confirms, similar to how Digital Extremes shows off Warframe.

As for Warframe, it’s set to get another expansion before the launch of The Duviri Paradox called Veilbreaker, which is all about Kahl.
