Digital Extremes has confirmed that its free to play third person shooter Warframe will be making the leap to the next generation, releasing on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S. The PS5 release will happen soon while the Xbox Series X|S release will follow later this year. The earlier release news for PS5 has been coupled with a new trailer showing Warframe running on Sony’s new console showing off graphical improvements and loading time reductions.
Both PS4 and PS5 players will be able to get an exclusive PlayStation Plus booster pack for no additional charge. This pack has been inspired by the DualSense containing a new Sedai Obsidian Syandana, an Experience Booster, in-game Currency Booster, Credits and Premium Credits. The PS5 version will also take advantage of the Activities tab showing how close players are to unlocking trophies and challenge activities, with the first challenge activity being a Sanctuary Onslaught Challenge. Warframe will feature cross generational play allowing PS4 and PS5 players to play together. Player progression will follow players from PS4 to PS5 so there is no worry of having to start over if you upgrade to the PS5 version of Warframe.
Warframe’s last big update was the Heart of Deimos update. Heart of Deimos added a new way for Warframe players to explore with Deimos consisting of two major areas. The first is the surface of the smaller Martian moon. The surface has become an Infested hivemind landscape full of creatures that will pose a danger to anyone that ventures across it. The surface is littered with pods from which Infested infected Entrati NPCs emerge along with other Infested creatures. As players explore they will learn more about the Entrati family as well as how the Infested came to be, with the origin of the faction said to be pretty complex. Players are now able to descend underground with these tunnels and spaces all being procedurally generated. The vast underground complexes of Deimos contain powerful Necramechs, some of which players can pilot themselves to help survive the terror underground. However, some of the Necramechs will pose a danger to players so be ready for a fight as you explore the places left behind the Entrati.
