Can I run Warframe on my computer?

By Cliff Henjum July 16, 2019

One of the most consistently popular games on Steam over the years has been the free-to-play cooperative third person action game, Warframe. Originally released way back on March 25, 2013, Digital Extremes has continued to provide numerous updates to the free-to-play Destiny clone. Although it was originally launched as a PC exclusive, it has since been ported over to PS4, Xbox One, and even the Nintendo Switch. It wasn’t always large player counts and fun times though - Warframe’s initial launch was as rocky as they come. However, after a series of major updates, Digital Extremes righted the ship and created an addictive game with loads of content.

Part of the reason it’s so addictive is the beautifully intertwined melee and gun combat with a TON of upgrade options through weapons, abilities, and Warframes. Because it is a free-to-play game, there is definitely a grind associated with some aspects of the game that can otherwise be sped up with real money. Warframe is definitely playable without spending a single dime and offers another advantage over its competitors, like Destiny 2 and The Division 2, with its extremely low system requirements. Even older computers and laptops can help you and the Tenno in their ongoing war efforts.

Players can look to run Warframe on their PC if they have at least a GeForce 8600 GT or Radeon HD 3600 in their GPU slot. The GeForce 8600 GT is a 12 year-old card and will only run 47% of today’s games, but lucky for you, Warframe is one of those gems. These specs are significantly lower than the system requirements for Destiny 2 New Light (the upcoming free-to-play update for Destiny 2), so players with older computers will still gravitate towards Warframe. The required CPU test is also super easy to pass - only a Core 2 Duo E6400 or Athlon 64 4000+ is needed. Warframe only lists one set of specs so we are missing the hardware required to max it out. Your computer only needs 2 GB of RAM as well.
