This is essentially a 5 year old game, and even though it has seen graphical updates and increased scale, the developers have been committed to keeping it viable for PCs from five years ago.

I run Warframe on two different systems but works rather well on both. My main PC runs a solid 60FPS with no glitches are server connection issues. My laptop is somewhat older and not spec'ed for gaming but still holds at a 30 FPS most of the time.


Tech aside, the game is awesome but with a rather large learning curve. But I will admit once you find out where everything is, its a blast.
