Warframe is one of the best free to play games available on Xbox One, Steam, and PlayStation 4. Players collect and upgrade a variety of Warframes (armor) for their own space ninjas as they struggle to maintain a balance between three galactic factions. With quality third-person shooting and melee combat and plenty of co-op missions to complete, Warframe is a great value for both free and paying players.

This weekend, the Infested Nightmares event is going on in Warframe. From now until August 17th, players can earn double Affinity (equipment experience) and get special deals and high-reward alerts. If that's not enough to get you playing, we also have 50 codes to give away to our awesome viewers. Read on for event and giveaway details!

Infested Nightmares

The Infested are Corpus and Grineer units who have been taken over by the Infestation, a plague created by the game's precursor race the Orokin. After being taken over by the Technocyte virus, enemy species become zombie-like Infested warriors. They often provide a challenge to the heroic Tenno (players), but this weekend's events and our codes will help even the odds!

Get Warframe now

Warframe takes place within the same universe as cult classic Xbox 360 actioner Dark Sector, only thousands of years in the future. The story begins with the player waking from cryosleep as a member of the Tenno, an ancient race of warriors (space ninjas). The Tenno are at war with three evil factions, including the Grineer (ghastly cybernetic clones), the Corpus (a militarized mega-corporation), and the Infested, monstrous victims of a virus originating in Dark Sector.

With over 30 distinctive Warframes to collect, countless weapons, parts, pets, and helper characters to collect, and more than fourteen planets and planetoids filled with missions, Warframe is a huge game that you can enjoy for free. Team up with up to four online players cooperatively to take on missions and hunt for resources. If you enjoy third-person shooters or action games, Warframe is a great game to play during the holidays.

Warframe was one of my picks for best Xbox One games of 2014. See our review for more details.
