Warframe Wins Three Awards

Wednesday May 16, 2018

Digital Extremes is proud, grateful and thankful to its thriving community for support in helping win three different awards over the past several months.

Starting in December 2017 with the Steam Awards, our community helped us take the “Steam Labor of Love Award.” This award description seems to have been written for Warframe:

“This game has been out for a while. The team is well past the first unveiling of their creative baby, but being the good parents they are, these devs continue to nurture and support their creation. This game, to this day, is still getting new content after all these years,” reads the Steam Awards text for the Labor of Love award.

Warframe was up against four other entrants: Team Fortress 2, Titan Quest Anniversary Edition, Path of Exile, and Crusader Kings II. Check out the award here: https://store.steampowered.com/SteamAwards/2017/

In April 2018, our marketing efforts designed around Warframe’s Plains of Eidolon expansion helped us win the “Best Marketing Campaign of the Year” award from ProMaxBDA, “a global association for the entertainment marketing industry that fosters community, creativity, and inspiration to drive bottom line results.” We competed against the Xbox One X, Xbox Game Pass, Shadow of War Campaign, and Final Fantasy IV campaigns.

Last but not least, Warframe won its first Webby Award! For the first time in its 22 year history, The Webby Awards — presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences (IADAS) — a 2000+ member judging body comprising leading Web experts, business figures, luminaries, visionaries and creative celebrities — created a bonafide video game category. The People’s Vote Award is, you guessed it, voted in by players.

Due to your efforts, Tenno, Warframe beat out significant AAA game contestants Star Wars Battlefront 2, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, and Cuphead: Don’t Deal with the Devil to win the “People’s Voice” Award for Best Action Game. These are some great games to be compared to, and we could not be happier with the results. Have a look here: https://www.webbyawards.com/winners/2018/games/general/action/

As always, a heartfelt thank you goes out to you, our community – You’re the best! Thank you for playing Warframe and supporting us through five years of growth. Our success is due to you!
