The Darkness 2 dev's F2P shooter Warframe a PS4 launch title

Extreme.

The Darkness 2 developer Digital Extremes has announced its free-to-play third-person co-op shooter Warframe will be a PlayStation 4 launch title.

The game launched on PC earlier this year. Digital Extremes, which also made Dark Sector, said the PS4 version will take advantage of the Sony console's social connectivity and community-building features, as well as some of the more snazzy features of the DualShock 4, including the touch-pad.

There's also an Android and iOS app called Warframe Nexus, which lets you perform in-game tasks and view real-time game information.

Digital Extremes creative director Steve Sinclair said: "The fact that we're developing Warframe for the launch of the PS4 this fall is unbelievably awesome.

"The irony is not lost on me that our original sci-fi concept for this game was the first ever seen footage for the PS3 generation that never came to fruition until now. Exciting times are ahead with this next gen transition."
