Products they used

Digital Extremes

With Warframe, Digital Extremes can add characters, weapons, and enemies at any time and then immediately revise based on player feedback. This means they need a workflow and set of tools that can let them build and iterate game content super-fast, with a really efficient import path into Warframe. For that, they choose Autodesk.
