According to SteamDB and Steamcharts over 175,000 Warframe players are online right now—which is only a fraction of people playing the game. Warframe also has a standalone client, is available on the Epic Games Store, and runs on no fewer than five major consoles. Nonetheless, the total on Steam is over 10% higher than the previous peak of just under 155,000 players for last year's event.

If you'd like to tune in, here's how to watch TennoCon 2021. So far, this year's major announcement is that crossplay and cross-saves are coming to every version of Warframe, including the just-announced mobile version of the game. Developers Digital Extremes are also expected to release more information about the upcoming The New War expansion, first announced in 2018 and highly anticipated by fans ever since.
