Warframe will also offer a player-friendly solution: you can not only play with any platform’s players, but you can also shift your save between the platforms!
Warframe is going to get a new expansion later this year, called The New War (plus a mobile version). Digital Extremes has promised a simultaneous launch on all platforms, including the PlayStation 5, the Xbox Series duo, and even the Nintendo Switch. So the free-to-play title has some high ambitions to fulfil here.
„Community is incredibly important to us and opening up cross-play and cross-save are just one of many more efforts we’ll take on to bring more players together including extending Warframe’s fast, fluid, action combat experience to other global gaming platforms.
We are at the very beginning of the next generation of Warframe. We are eight years young and have the benefit of beginning our second console generation with a major game expansion that will also mark a new chapter of more story-based content our players have been asking for,” Digital Extremes’ CEO, Sheldon Carter, said in a press release. You can see a thirty-minute demo of the game below.
The expansion will star Corpus Engineer Veso, Grineer Soldier Kahl-175, Dax warrior Teshin. All three will be playable in a quest for the first time. Here’s the official description of The New War: „Prepare yourself, Tenno. The New War is coming, and no one is safe. Old enemies have returned to the Origin System… will the factions unite against Ballas, Erra and the advancing Sentients, or buckle under the weight of a full-scale invasion?”
Digital Extremes’ owners, Leyou, a Hong Kong-based company, was formerly planned to be acquired by Sony, but, along with all the other bidders, they got shafted, when the Chinese communist trick of putting the deal behind closed doors locked everyone out, and suddenly, in December, Tencent, China’s biggest tech giant, was confirmed to be the new owner.
