Warframe: support for cross-play, cross-save and on mobile is coming


During the course of TennoCon 2021, Digital Extremes announced that it will soon introduce support for cross-play and cross-save in the online shooter Warframe. This way PC, Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X and S and Xbox One users will be able to play together and continue their games on any system. This is certainly excellent news, as players have been asking for these two features for a long time. In addition, the US developer should also have a mobile version of the game in the works.

Digital Extremes' Sheldon Carter explained that the two novelties, which do not yet have a release date, were developed to please the community and to allow her to play together wherever she wants.

During the same event it was suggested that Warframe is also coming to mobile systems. The news was then made official by the company's Twitter account, although no more details were disclosed.

Warframe is a free-to-play cooperative online action game set in an ever-changing sci-fi world. It is considered one of the virtuous titles of the free-to-play economic model because it does not oppress players with continuous monetary demands and does not impose gambling-style microtransactions for progression.

‘Warframe’ Is Getting Crossplay And Cross-Save, Yes, Even With PS4 And PS5



Yesterday was TennoCon, the big Warframe event that announces the most significant developments to that live game every year. A new expansion, The New War is coming, which is not unexpected, but far and away the biggest news out of the show is the addition of something fans have been asking to see for years now: Crossplay and cross-save.

When the New War expansion hits later this year, Warframe will now open up crossplay and cross-save between every single platform. That’s PC, Xbox, Switch and yes, even PlayStation. They also announced a mobile version of the game is in the works, and will be a part of this system when it arrives.

While crossplay and cross-save may be getting more and more common among games like this, it’s still always a big deal when it arrives, and it’s significant to note that this does including the PlayStation ecosystem with no caveats.

Many games have some level of crossplay, but often PlayStation is left out, due to Sony seeming hesitant to jump on board when they’re the market sales leader. They don’t want cross-play, they want your friends to buy a PS4 or PS5. But slowly, their grip seems to be loosening as they face the inevitable.

How is Warframe pulling this off? That’s not clear.

We learned in the Epic V. Apple trials that Sony is charging Epic a fee for crossplay if say, a Fortnite player spends most of their playtime on PlayStation, but spends most of their microtransaction money on a different platform. Meanwhile, recently Borderlands 3 just opened up crossplay almost two years after release, and yet specifically excluded PlayStation from that, not elaborating as to why that was, and everyone assumed Sony might be charging them something they didn’t want to pay.

Is Sony charging Warframe for crossplay to some extent, or have they now dropped that stipulation now that their policy with Epic was made public? That remains unknown, but Warframe, as a microtransaction heavy game, would seemingly fall into the same category as Fortnite. Destiny 2, a Warframe competitor, is also getting crossplay in about a month and they too seem to have PlayStation on board. Again, no word on whether PlayStation is simply going with the flow these days, or if these companies are paying them.

Regardless, this is big news for Warframe especially, given how long the playerbase has been asking for this, and got probably the biggest reaction of the show. We don’t have a fixed date on the expansion yet, but we should soon, I’d imagine. This does seem like this will soon be the norm for most games at launch at this point, breaking down the walls of third party games across platforms. Hopefully Sony is simply letting this happen now, and we won’t have as many scuffles about it in the future.
