Expansion Smashes Records; Elevates Warframe to Second Highest Played F2P Game Currently on Steam
Independent Canadian game developer and publisher Digital Extremes announced today that Warframe Plains of Eidolon, the game’s most ambitious and sweeping update of 2017, has broken performance records and reached all-time highs following its Thursday, October 12 launch on PC.
With the Plains of Eidolon expansion, Warframe hit an all-time peak of 121,377 concurrent players on Steam, nearly double its previous record of 69,526 CCU peak in March 2017 with Octavia’s Anthem, making it the second highest peak CCU for a free-to-play game currently on Steam. Warframe Plains of Eidolon rocketed to the top five of SteamCharts, racking up 40,145,054 hours played (as of this writing) by enthusiastic Tenno.
Since its launch in 2013 on PC, Warframe has amassed more than 30 million registered users across all three systems over four-plus years. Plains of Eidolon offers players a massive new landscape to explore, a 10-story high boss to combat, new weapons, items and armor to upgrade and customize, a unique Warframe to play, all while introducing a significant, original chapter in the game’s ever-expanding lore. Plains of Eidolon‘s expansion went live PC and Steam on Thursday, October 12, and will arrive on PlayStation®4 and Xbox One later this year, and is free to play.
