12 Games Like Warframe

Games Like WarframeOur list of games like Warframe features a diverse range of free and paid titles that offer hundreds of action packed gameplay hours of co-operative and customisable gameplay.

Taking control of your own ancient warrior as they awake from cyrosleep players in Warframe must use their powerful and advanced exo-armour to combat a large variety of deadly science fiction foes. With these enemies and your underlying missions offering high challenges you’ll need to rely on a team of up to four players to eliminate enemies, defend locations, survive as long as possible, capture points, retrieve data and other Warframe mission objectives.

In addition to other players you’ll be able to rely on your powerful mechanical battle suit known as a Warframe. This suit comes with unique abilities, stats and mods to customise your play style to something that feels satisfying to you. This is further enhanced with weapons that offer an equal amount of depth as you alter your primary, secondary and melee weapon to meet your needs. Reaching the ideal loadout is far from easy though with the core Warframe gameplay loop revolving around players chasing equipment gains through various upgrade and reward mechanisms.

This list of alternatives to Warframe focuses on shooters and other action games that have a co-operative element and also allow plenty of customisation as you fight your way through increasing power levels to tackle higher tier challenges.
