WARFRAME had Steam trading card support added on June 26, 2013. There are 8 cards in the series. As Warframe is a free to play game, card drops are earned by spending for the game's content. You'll receive 1 card drop for every $9 you spend on either Platinum or Prime Access Packs.
There are two separate types of trading cards, Regular and Foil. Regular Cards are the most common drop of the pair and can randomly drop from any of the 8 existing variants of Warframe cards, Where as Foil Trading cards being the rarer of the latter.
Said cards can become crafted when all 8 are collected, enabling the account owner to level up their Warframe Steam Badge to a maximum of 5 for regular cards (As seen here), and a maximum of 1 for Foil cards. With each badge craft a random Emotion or Profile background is awarded.
During December 10, 2013 to January 3, 2014, Steam held their Holiday Sale 2013 where spending every $10 would grant the user a trading card to craft into the Steam Holiday Sale 2013 Badge, Warframe was included within these cards and crafting a regular variant of this badge would earn the user a free in-game item from a select number of games along with the usual crafting rewards (Emoticon, Background), the Phased Skins was a possible reward from this. Crafting a foil variant would give the user five random in-game items as opposed to one.
Holiday Sale CardsEdit
Emoticons may be used to display icons within Steam chat, these are the possible rewards for the Warframe Profile Badges.
Each profile background may be used to decorate the users page, these are the possible rewards for the Warframe Profile Badges excluding the Holiday Reward Background which could only be rewarded from crafting the Holiday Sale 2013 badge.
Each base card has its own unique artwork when they are zoomed into if they are either owned or the user has levelled up their steam badge to completion, this artwork is identical to the cropped images found within cards and will not differ if it is the foil or regular variant.
Despite card acquisition being given on a single card basis, Warframe Steam Cards may also come within Booster packs, available only to the Booster Pack Creator, or Steam support given. It costs 750 Gems for which a Warframe Booster Pack may be made, containing 3 random cards.
- Interestingly, within the WARFRAME holiday card artwork, Excalibur is wielding a singular Ankyros when they only come in a duo exclusively.
- The Ankyros are also using the Phased Ankyros skin included within the Holiday Crafting Programme.
