星际战甲 (lit. "Galactic Armor"), commonly referred as Warframe China, is an alternative build of WARFRAME developed by Digital Extremes and published by ChangYou on PC and Perfect World on the PS4, targeted specifically for Chinese players. While the game is virtually identical to the global counterpart, most voice-over quotes are dubbed in Mandarin Chinese and patches offer slightly different content that are usually one month behind global console builds but allow earlier access to Chinese themed items.

Warframe China PS4 has been discontinued on July 24, 2017,[1][2] while the PC version remained in service.

AccessEdit

While residency inside Mainland China is not required to play Warframe China, players must be able to provide Chinese ID credentials (excluding Hong Kong SAR, Macau SAR and Taiwan) in order to register for a ChangYou account to gain access to the game. A Mainland Chinese cell phone number was also a requirement for two-factor authentication to participate in Closed Beta prior to September 25, 2015 Open Beta launch.

InstallationEdit

On PC, Warframe China and its global counterpart share the same AppData folder, hence they cannot be installed alongside each other on the same Windows partition using conventional means. Attempting to install both versions of Warframe on the same computer will render both games unplayable, even when the "Verify" feature in the launcher is used.

One workaround is to backup the files in the AppData folder and restore the files belonging to the version of Warframe that the player wants to play next, or to install one of the Warframe versions on a separate Windows user account.

Comparison with Global BuildEdit

Updates in Warframe China are approximately one month behind global console builds and three months behind PC. Story and mechanics are identical to Warframe global, with the only exceptions being item release dates, economy and languages.

Timed ExclusivesEdit

Timed exclusives are Chinese themed items that are first made available to Warframe China prior to their release in the Warframe global build. Their early availability in Warframe China are for promotional purpose only, and are subjected to be released in the Warframe global build at a later date[3].

Items that are exclusive to Warframe China as of most recent update includes:

Platinum CostEdit

WFCMarket

Platinum64 Platinum in China are sold 1:1 using Renminbi[6]. Warframe China tends to value in-game items differently compared to the global build, where items of the same type would sometimes differentiate greatly in value. Omitting various discounts and bonuses, a Wukong Warframe would cost Warframe China players around Platinum64140[7] (Platinum64199 - Platinum6450 - Platinum648 for Profile Icons), while a typical Warframe such as Mirage costs Platinum6480, which is valued at around 22.05 USD and 12.60 USD respectively. In contrast, Mirage in the global build would cost players Platinum64275, which is valued at around 18 USD.

BoostersEdit

WFCBoosters

Boosters in Warframe China do not have duration, but number of missions that the booster will take effect. For instance, a player who purchased 10 charges of Credit Booster will be able boost their Credits64 Credits earnings in the next 10 missions. Purchase options are limited to 10 or 100 charges.

ColorsEdit

WFCColors

Color Picker Extensions are not sold as a set in Warframe China, but colors are instead sold per single color. When coloring their gear, players can choose from four color palettes: Free, Basic, Standard Paid, and Saturated, where each color in the palette set costs Platinum640, Platinum641, Platinum642, Platinum643 respectively.

Enemy LanguagesEdit

Unlike the global build where Grineer and Corpus have their own spoken languages, all enemies quotes in missions, cut-scenes and Landing Craft radio in Warframe China are dubbed in Mandarin Chinese.
