Warframe fans have already translated the alien language that was revealed in the livestream

Warframe ostron translation Digital Extremes

On Saturday, Warframe’s developers Digital Extremes revealed the game was going open world in its next update, and that in the open world would be a new race of creatures that write in a whole different language. In 48 hours, the Warframe community thinks they’ve translated it.

Ben M spoke with Digital Extremes ahead of the reveal to get the inside scoop on Warframe’s open world update.

Working together on Reddit, fans collected examples of the text that were shown in the livestreamand realised that, rather than a whole different language, the Ostron people used a different script. Each letter representing a sound.

These are the ones they’ve deciphered so far:

It’s bloody impressive when you think that they got all this from basically a street of shop names daubed on wooden signs:
