Five years in, here are some impressive Warframe stats.
Warframe turns five years old on March 21. To celebrate, developer Digital Extremes is rolling out a whole bunch of anniversary celebrations and events, which IGN is kicking off in style with a look at some of its monumental numbers.
Since its initial open beta launch in 2013, Warframe has reached over 38 million registered players (38,083,936, to be exact), roughly seven million of which came in the last year alone – no doubt thanks in part to the massive Plains of Eidolon update. Digital Extremes sent us a few fancy images to illustrate a fewer of Warframe’s finer stats, starting with its register users by year:
On top of that, those players have racked up a whopping 1.2 billion total hours played – more precisely 1,197,906,351 hours, which is roughly the equivalent of 136,747 years.
Here are few more interesting stats:
- 52,972,344 warframes have been crafted in game.
- 234,766,197 weapons have been crafted along side them.
- Captain Vor (Warframe’s ill-fated first boss) has been killed 53,117,969 times.
- The Stalker that terrorizes players mid-mission has been killed 41,765,109 times.
The infographic above looks at how many different types of weapons have been added to Warframe over the last five years, sorted by primary, secondary, and melee.
Warframe Creative Director Steve Sinclair said “we had no expectations it would endure even half as long,” and that the game began with only one level and a 750MB install size. Sinclair also said that the community support has allowed them to “grow and experiment” with Warframe, and that “there is still so much left to do.”
And finally, there’s a the community side of things:
Warframe’s TennoGen program periodically adds community-made items to the game. The graphic above breaks it down by type of item added, starting with the seven items from the very first TennoGen, all the way up to the 175 that have been added total.
Tomorrow, March 14, a fifth-year anniversary site will launch here with more details about everything to come. The third annual TennoCon has also been scheduled for July 7, which you can learn more about here.
