Joining as 41st Warframe, Gauss is a speedster with kinetic motion-based powers and abilities. With this new armor, players can cover huge areas in seconds, run through water or punch enemies with enough power to send them flying.

Gauss possess a unique gauge unlike any other for being a lightning-fast character aside from having cold, electricity and heat abilities. Each of his movement helps charge his Speed Gauge with electrical current as well as Shields.

One of his hyper-sprint moves called Mach Rush can be used to directly hit foes hard or can create powerful shockwave by hitting something solid. Generating armor plating for protection or electrocuting opponents are also his specialty.

So far as players will keep Gauss running, Gauss wields more power to deal extensive damage to any adversaries. You can take time to build him up with available materials and grind a bit or just purchase him from in-game marketplace.

Although an expansion in nature, they want to consider Empyrean as a content pack that will introduce players to new territory of existing in-game world, spaceship and many new upgrades to improve overall experience like past releases.

Warframe will be taking a giant leap forward with cinematic quests with more open world areas. Players will be able to explore throughout Origin System on their Railjack spacecrafts to seek missions and earn exciting reward items.

You are allowed to use Archwing flight system to fly from ship to ship, which is a much cooler way of traversing. We saw three players head into battle from Dry Dock space garage riding a custom Railjack battleship, in live demo.

Their team reaches enemy ship using light speed travel and hit it with EMP blasts before approaching Corpus soldiers on board. Next up, those three moved to another mission to a capital ship and face-off Kuva Lich boss character.

DE team showed off their new Squad Link system where members of a team can spread across a larger are and working on different parts of an objective. This connects cooperative gameplay to a new level and makes teamwork really fun.

Aside from engaging into action-packed space combat, seizing space ships or interact with NPCs, you can actually recruit them to do your bidding and more when Empyrean finally arrives and developers are working hard to deliver all that.

Despite being six years late, this video is definitely a worthy introduction for a game that has grown a 50 million strong player base. It nicely encapsulates what everyone is getting into and specially will appeal to many newcomers.

Trachtenberg masterfully connects past history of the game into where we are at present in a wonderful cinematic spectacle and what kick-ass action sequence it ended up being clearly reflects his influence of Hong Kong action movies.

Third-person shooter Warframe pits players in role of ancient warriors Tenno against a race of clones named the Grineer, powered by robotics and laser tech. There are more than 35 armor suits, loads of weapons with wide array of customizing options.

A huge open-world is up for you to explore as you upgrade your armor or weapons and even join different clans. Until it finally arrives on Switch platform, we cannot tell how much of that are being brought to Nintendo handheld console.

After having successfully ported Doom and Rocket League for Switch, Panic Button studio is back to bring this experience at your grasp. Their director of development, Adam Creighton already stated last month that they are working on a major port.

Considering their reputation and experience of bringing AAA titles from other platforms to Switch, we can bet that they are going to nail this one as well. Plus, they are familiar with Switch hardware from a very early period.

Warframe was launched back in 2013 for PC and PlayStation 4, then a year later in 2014, it debuted on Xbox One. Last time we checked, it had a whooping 38 million players registered worldwide and that is no small achievement.

Debuting on Switch will definitely increase that number higher for sure and open up doorway to many other possibilities for its community. Although this trailer mentions of the port coming very soon, there is no specific release date revealed yet.
