Things are getting hairy in the Solar System! Digital Extremes, creator of the AAA Free-to-Play title, Warframe® is proudly participating in the Movember Foundation’s annual Movember campaign. Since 2003, the Movember community has raised over $574 million and funded over 800 programs in 21 countries. This work is saving and improving the lives of men affected by prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health issues.
Warframe is encouraging its 12 million+ players across PC, PS4™ and Xbox One to donate and make a difference through various Movember-related events, contests and in-game goodies. First up is distribution of a free virtual moustache — known as The Magnum to mustache aficionados — for players to sport in-game and proudly display their support for the cause.
Additionally, the Warframe Movember website – www.warframe.com/movember – encourages players to reach multiple fundraising goals that will unlock equally fantastic in-game ‘mouth brows’ to class up their Warframes throughout the month of November. To get players in the spirit, this video shows off the upcoming ‘staches in full swank. http://youtu.be/5CnX805Izjc
Warframe is also aiming to break a Movember-themed Guinness World Record with help from their Warframe players in mid-November. Full details regarding the record and how individuals can participate will be revealed on November 12.
“Our Tenno love to get behind a great cause so we expect our Movember activities to generate some great awareness and contributions,” said Meridith Braun, VP of Publishing at Digital Extremes. “We are excited about all of the Movember activities we have planned, especially a very ambitious one that will remain under wraps until November 12th. You won’t want to miss this!”
The Movember Foundation is the leading global organization committed to changing the face of men’s health. Once signed up on Movember.com, men, also known as Mo Bros, grow a moustache for the 30 days of November, raising awareness and funds for men’s health programs as friends and family donate to their efforts.
This all leaves just two burning questions: What DOES a mustache on a Warframe look like? And, will Ember, Nova, or Mirage sport a swanky mustache too? Log in today to find out! Warframe is available for free download on PC, PS4™ and Xbox One.
