Calling all Wikia Tenno, especially parents!
I have made something of a compilation of the submissions below.
Warframe is a co-operative, free-to-play, sci-fi shooter game developed by Digital Extremes (DE) set in a distant future where the solar system is torn between a hyper-militarist clone empire, profit-driven technological merchants, and infested mutants/zombies. The player takes the role of a "Tenno", a member of a fourth faction with a blurry past and roots in ninja themes, and is guided by an entity called "the Lotus" through missions including timed survival, prisoner rescue, sabotage, and many more. The players is always pitted against enemies in superior numbers. To this end, players have at their disposal a varied arsenal of weapons both archaic and fantastic, and, most notably, a special suit of armor called the Warframe, each of which has a particular set of abilities. Despite being primarily a shooter game, the gameplay has a definite focus on the agility of the Warframes, featuring some parkour elements, and the way each Warframes’ abilities allow for creativity in combat.
This game may be played either alone or with up to three other players, but occasionally players will face off against each other in 1v1 or 2v2 battle. As the game is still in “beta,” it is under constant development and improvement. With an ESRB Rating or Teen (T), it contains moderate gore (which can be diminished in the in-game options), mild blood, weapon-related violence, requires a constant Internet connection, and online interactions which can contain inappropriate language.
What do you all think?
Wikia has added a new page to wikia sites: MediaWiki:ParentFilter
I would like to have it populated and what we need for that right away is a blurb about the game to give non-video-gamer parents a way to gauge the game without having to read the whole wiki or play the game themselves. Wee need notes about general game feel, gore/blood factor, language, violence, and so on. I know the game is still changing and that should be mentioned, too. That in mind it may be hard to write about the future of warframe since it does not seem to follow a single thought. But if you could give about 10-15 lines of "What Is Warframe: A Parents Guide" as a comment here, then the community can vote/discuss them as replies to the comment. I and the other admins will also sift through them and pick out some we like to highlight.
I really like the idea of the parent filter page as it gives us a chance to speak up about video games and how ours differs from others so that parents don't just see the ESRB rating and assume that the T rating means its too much. Let us give them the short yet informative download of the game. thanks all!
Fight with honor, Tenno!
