I started playing World of Warcraft during Mists of Pandaria, lured in by the lush emerald forests of this long-lost world, enthralled by a story that had its hooks in me through to the end. I remember soaring across the aqua skies of the Jade Forest, stunned by the beauty of the gorgeous Serpent's Heart statue sitting right at its heart - and audibly sobbing when it was destroyed a few quests later. This was World of Warcraft, the MMORPG all of my friends had told me about, and it was glorious.

A hush falls at TennoCon 2023; a rarity given the sold-out event boasts thousands of attendees. Why, you ask? It's quite simple: Soulframe. Digital Extremes has given us our first real deep dive into the upcoming MMORPG, which takes clear inspiration from 2022 Game of the Year Elden Ring. It's a stunning, high-fantasy world that is a stark reminder of some of the evils present in our own world, and PCGamesN had the pleasure of sitting down with Soulframe's chief creative officer, Steve Sinclair, at TennoCon 2023 to chat about the new game.

There's this scene in the original The Texas Chain Saw Massacre in which Leatherface attacks a victim, but they escape. After a brief bit of yelling, the killer sits and holds his head in his hands in despair and sorrow. Without saying a word, the practically mute character tells us everything we need to know about the plot, the pressure he's under from his family, and his desperation. As he creepily licks his lips at the end of the scene with apparent determination, we come full circle, so it's no wonder this chainsaw-wielding pawn of the Sawyer family is the face of the franchise. Whether you've seen the movies or not, you know the face and the name, so why is Leatherface seemingly the worst character in The Texas Chain Saw Massacre game?

Warframe has been on the go for ten years, and Tennocon 2023 is most certainly a celebration of that legacy. As the RPG game enters a new era with the Whispers in the Dark update, we're also set to go back in time with Warframe 1999, an upcoming story that sees us return to the very beginning of Tenno's ongoing saga. As the curtain falls on what looks like a radical new step for Warframe, I caught up with creative director Rebecca Ford and Soulframe's chief creative officer Steve Sinclair to chat about the update, and where it draws its inspiration from.

When is the Soulframe release date? The upcoming fantasy MMORPG from the creators behind Warframe has been on our minds since it was first announced in 2022. There is still little known about the project, other than that it is a beautiful open-world game set in a natural environment, and revolving around themes of climate change and environmental destruction, so of course we had to find out more.
During our time at Tennocon 2023, we caught a glimpse into the world of Soulframe, which certainly looks and feels very different to its sister, Warframe. Here's everything we know about the MMORPG at the moment, and boy does it look like it'll be a good one.

Bokura is unlike most games I've played. I admire so many of the concepts in it, as well as the puzzles Tokoronyori presents. However, playing it on the Switch doesn't quite seem ideal. While things started out fairly smooth, if a bit jarring due to certain imagery, things like lag and some awkward level design combined to keep Siliconera's Graham Russell and myself from completing it.
Bokura begins with a young person on a train. The character reminisces about an adventure with a childhood friend. At which point, we're back and re-experiencing it. The two children, each from not ideal family situations, decide to run away into the nearby forest and tamper with an obnoxious statue of a politician. However, after an encounter with a dead deer and mysterious creature, their perspectives change. Everything Graham saw was robotic in nature. Meanwhile, everyone on my side was an animal person and we were in a sepia-toned wood. Still, with no way to go with forward, we headed deep into the forest.
The further the adventure goes, the more drastic the changes can be. I'd go through walls in his world, because in mine there was no blockade. He'd be stunned by my ability to "teleport" or clone myself. A creature, which was a "dog" on my side and a "robot" on his, would be aggressive to me and an elevating platform on his. It could be fascinating, and some of these puzzles and situations were genuinely thought-provoking.
But what did us in was a situation involving a room with teleporters and moving platforms. In my game, it seemed straightforward. I would use plants to clone myself. My doppleganger and I would need to push certain switches. I'd see Graham zip about the level. However, because of both lag and us being in two different places, it ended up being essentially impossible to complete the situation.
Bokura is available on the Nintendo Switch and PC.
