Warframe, the free-to-play hit that was actually one of the first games to arrive on PS4 back in 2013, is getting a full PS5 upgrade later this year. Thanks to the power of Sony's next-gen console, developer Digital Extremes is incorporating all kinds of improvements, both graphical and technical.
For starters, the game's going to look quite a bit better overall. You can expect dynamic lightning, an overhauled rendering system, and improved textures across the board. It'll all run in 4K at 60 frames-per-second, too.
You can see the dynamic lighting on display in the screenshots below. The PS4 version is on the left, and the PS5 version is on the right. Quite the upgrade.
Load times will also be reduced, and the game will support cross-play across both PS4 and PS5. It'll even make use of the DualSense controller's adaptive triggers, which will respond to the kind of weapon that you're using.
Are you a Warframe fan? Might you be jumping in for the first time on PS5? Wall run into the comments section below.
Any word on a Platinum trophy?
Yeah, this could definitely be a jumping on point for me.
Got give the developers credit not seen a console game supported this well with regular updates etc
Borefall is already sweating,because of Chadframe.🤪
Well, that trailer didn’t make me want to play Warframe on PS5... it just made me want to play Warframe.
Gonna download on my PS4 tonight. Any tips anyone?
@Kienda If you thought genshin impact was grindy,oh boy,do I have news for you...
Dynamic 4k btw
@Kienda - Choose Excalibur as your starter frame. He's a good all rounder for new players. Download the free PS+ starter pack for some extra platinum (premium currency) and save that currency for new Warframe and weapon slots.
If you decide to stick with it then join a clan asap, not for coop but for access to blueprints for new frames and weapons. Be prepared to grind for everything! All frames and weapons after your starter stuff need to be built in a foundry and take 12 to 72 hours to complete. There are hundreds of hours of content to get through so you'll amass a tonne of resources passively but the grind is always there.
Use the wiki, Warframe is a confusing game with a pretty steep learning curve and many layers to its many systems. It can feel massively daunting at first but if it clicks for you there's a great game in there. Good luck!
@rachetmarvel I got all excited seeing that trailer (which looks BAD ASS!) and was ready to give it a go on PS5 but your comment has made me stop and think.
I've been loving Genshin Impact but boy is it a grind particularly towards current endgame. How bad is Warframe really?
@Shigurui Good info. I've been tempted to start Warframe for quite a while but it just looked way too complex to jump in 5+ years after release. Thanks.
Gosh, I remember first playing this near PS4 launch. Tried it for a few hours thought I'd never hear of it again. Got into it around 3 years ago and put in 100's of hours. It can be really fun. Its the only Games as a service I've ever enjoyed and one of the very few online games I've put time into. Also have to give them a shout out about how they price. Frames can be a little expensive but in a fully free game they are really flashed out. A few times, after long weekend seasons I'd go and buy something just to say thanks to the devs.
@themightyant Warframe is very grindy and the RNG goddess can be a cruel deity. But it’s one of the more fun games out there with the free-to-play. The movement is spectacular and the “frames” are fun. It can be as complex and theorycrafty as you want it to be. I get back to it from time to time, but I tend to avoid the heavy RNG grindy games anymore.
@Shigurui thanks, I appreciate the detailed feedback. Will be taking note.
@Rossif3r @Kienda - You're welcome. It's honestly quite a difficult game to give advice for as the further you get the more complex the game itself gets so I just put the most basic things I could think of that might be helpful to beginners.
If you have anything specific you'd like to know then ask away. I don't play much these days but I've put almost 1500 hours into it so should be able to give an answer.
