Warframe 1.83 rolls out loads of change, reduces PS4 file size

Digital Extremes have deployed their latest Warframe update for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Patch 1.83 is now available to download and install on these systems, ushering in a long list of changes made to the PC version in update 27.2.2.

This latest patch touches just about every part of the popular free-to-play shooter including the recently introduced Railjacks – Warframe’s player-piloted spacecraft.

Another 1.83 highlight PS4 players will want to take note of is Digital Extremes’ effort to remaster Warframe, bringing the total file size down to 29GB from 48GB. This requires the full game to be re-downloaded though this will be done automatically and you won’t have to backup your data.

Warframe PS4 version 1.83 patch notes

This is a remaster update! 

Warframe on PS4 is not only getting Revised, but reduced (in size that is)! For those unfamiliar with the remastering process, when we launch a remaster update we are essentially doing a big cache cleanup to optimize old and existing assets. When we do this, we free up space that ultimately reduces the overall size of Warframe on your PS4’s HDD. When the update goes live, Warframe will go from 48 GB to roughly 29 GB after it has been fully downloaded again! 

It is important to note that since this affects existing assets, Warframe will be re-downloaded in its entirety. This will appear no different from any other update, business as usual! It will download in the background as is expected with all main title updates.

Here are some things to keep in mind: 

  • You do NOT need to delete Warframe before the update.
  • You do NOT have to back-up your data before the update.
  • Your Warframe settings should be saved after the remaster launches, but we have run into issues in the past where they have – we apologize if this occurs!

Console Specific Notes: 

  • Similarly to when we deployed Warframe Revised on PC, our PS4 Tenno can expect a 2x Affinity Weekend to follow the week that the update is deployed. We will post a PSA once the bonus weekend is live!
  • Controller Changes & Fixes:
    • Added a new Railjack pilot control “Pilot Centered Crosshair” option that, when set, the look input will only turn the Railjack and will not affect your crosshair. To enable/disable go to Options > Controls > Scroll down to “Railjack”:
      • You are already familiar with the enabled state of this option as it was the previous default and only crosshair option. Now, when you disable this option, the left stick will move your Railjack (forward/back/side to side), and the right stick will now allow you to freely move the reticle across the screen.

It’s crazy to think, but this month Warframe is celebrating its 7th anniversary. The flamboyant third person shooter first appeared on PC before coming to PS4 as a launch title for Sony’s console. It’s also available to play on Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
