Digital Extremes, creator of the AAA Free-to-Play hit, Warframe, is breaking out the virtual 'staches once again and proudly participating in Movember, the annual month-long celebration of the moustache to help raise awareness of men's health issues including prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and physical inactivity.
With more than $673 million dollars raised globally, the charity aims to help men live happier, healthier and longer lives by addressing both physical and mental health issues.
Starting today, players logging into Warframe on PC, Xbox One or PS4 get to sport in-game, The Dastard - the first of up to five free virtual moustaches equipable on their favourite space ninja in missions throughout the Solar System. To gain access to the additional moustache styles players are encouraged to visit the Warframe Movember website - www.warframe.com/Movember - where they can donate to the cause and help reach multiple fundraising goals to unlock the additional free, all-new for Movember 2015 in-game moustaches to class up their Waframes throughout the month of November.
Warframe holds the Guinness World Record for the Largest Gathering of People Wearing False Mustaches in a Videogame. Set during Movember 2014, over 10,000 Tenno across PC, PS4 and Xbox One donned their favourite mouth-brow in-game. Alongside the Guinness World Record, the Warframe Community raised thousands of dollars for the charity throughout the month-long event.
Digital Extremes is continuing to raise awareness this year and encouraging its 19 million+ players to donate and make a difference as they run Movember - related events, Community contests, live streams and more throughout the month. Be sure to follow the Warframe Community activities on Warframe.com as well as on the Warframe Facebook and Twitter channels with #Moframe.
