Warframe developer Digital Extremes has announced Soulframe, a free-to-play fantasy MMORPG and all-new IP for the Canadian studio, in early development. Unveiled via a cinematic trailer, which evokes the game's themes of “romanticisim and fantasy”, Soulframe will be an action hybrid-MMORPG affair, inspired by the developer's “childhood favourites”.“With Soulframe’s worldbuilding and thematic elements, we are really looking to go back to our childhood favourites and pull inspiration from the elaborate fantasy worlds that we fell in love with growing up,” Creative Director Geoff Crookes explained. "Our team is really interested in this idea of nature and humanity colliding and we’ll be exploring a lot of those themes through our own lens while playing with ideas of restoration and exploration."
No platforms or release window have been revealed for Soulframe as yet, but Digital Extremes promises that its path to release will be a “transparent, collaborative, and an iterative process” involving input from players. You can take a look at the reveal trailer for Soulframe below.
