Warframe cross-play: How to link accounts on all platforms & cross-save update
Warframe players received a major cross-play update in 2022, and now the long-awaited cross-save and cross-progression feature has been announced for 2023 as well.
Warframe may have begun life as a relatively focused title full of space ninjas carving through enemies in fairly confined environments, but developer Digital Extremes is constantly reinventing it. We’ve had new locations, Warframes, and entirely new gameplay mechanics added to the game including space combat and open-world areas.
One thing fans were always begging for, though, was cross-play and cross-save functionality. The good news is that cross-play is finally here, and we now have an update on Warframe cross-progression, too. Here’s all we know about Warframe cross-play and cross-save, courtesy of Digital Extremes.
Warframe cross-play: How to play across PlayStation, Xbox, Switch & PC
As of December 2022, Warframe has cross-play functionality. After much testing across various platforms, Digital Extremes has finally rolled out the feature across PC, Xbox, PlayStation, and Nintendo Switch.
How to link platforms
You can link your accounts on Digital Extremes’ website by heading to the login page. Once you’re in, you can link accounts (and Twitch Prime) for access to your friend list across platforms.
How to enable cross-play
To toggle cross-play in Warframe on or off, just head into the Options menu, and look at the bottom of the page for the option.
How to join friends
You can party up with friends using Squad matchmaking, so you’ll be able to join your teammates or invite them as you would if you were on the same platform.
You can meet in Relays or visit Dojos, although the devs have said there’s an issue with heading into Dojos in a cross-platform squad which can be avoided by inviting players once you’re already in the Dojo.
Digital Extremes has mentioned this on their support page, too:
“To help identify players who have the same name across different platforms, everyone has been assigned a numeric suffix. This suffix is only necessary when you are looking to invite someone into your squad or chatting with players who have the same name. You can always find your suffix by visiting your Profile in the game menu.”
When is Warframe getting cross-save or cross-progression?
Warframe cross-save and cross-progression is coming to the game in 2023. The long-awaited feature was announced during Tennocon 2023 and will allow players to pick up their progress from any platform.
The actual date of release has yet to be revealed, but players can expect to access their account, including Warframes, equipment, weapons, and more, on any and all platforms.
