Digital Extremes have announced next-generation console ports for Warframe.
The free-to-play online cooperative third-person action game is coming to both PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X+S “this year” and sometime later, respectively.
Warframe on Xbox Series X+S and PlayStation 5 will run in 4K resolution and at 60 FPS, with huge improvements to load times, cross-generation play between both previous gen and next-gen consoles, and more.
Here’s a new trailer of Warframe running on next-gen consoles:
Here’s a rundown of Warframe’s improvements on Xbox Series X+S and PS5:
When Warframe launched on PS4 in 2013, we knew we were committed to supporting it for a long time, and we are so grateful to you for helping Warframe thrive.
The Origin System has grown so much since we first launched on consoles, and we can’t wait to start the next chapter on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
NEXT GENERATION WARFRAME
We’ve spent a significant amount of time and energy developing our new enhanced renderer to make Warframe even more visually impressive on new hardware! This rendering technology creates dramatic, dynamic lighting that follows the natural direction and strength of any given light source in an environment.
There’s no better place to see the stunning differences than on the Plains, the Orb Vallis or the Cambion Drift. The way light from the sun casts long shadows from the trees, the way foliage creates dynamic shadows as you stalk through it, or in the reflections on your Warframe as you stroll through the market square of Cetus.
On next-gen hardware, Warframe will look and play better than ever. Running at up to 4k resolution and 60 FPS means no detail will escape your eye as you dive into your next Mission.
You can also expect improved loading times across the entire game, thanks to the next generation solid-state drive! Not only will you be able to step into your next adventure faster than ever before, but you’ll notice improved texture quality across the entire Origin System.
Plus, the addition of the new Adaptive Triggers feature on the DualSense controller will make each melee Weapon swing or trigger pull feel more impactful.
This is just the beginning, Tenno. There’s plenty in store for the future as we take full advantage of the technology these new consoles offer!

Warframe on PS5 will support up to 4K Resolution and 60 FPS.

Yes! Haptic feedback will be tied to firing your Weapons. An “Enable Controller Trigger Effect” option will be available in settings should you wish to disable this feature.
- Will PS4 trophies transfer to PS5?
While your progress will transfer over to PS5, your trophies will not, which means that you will have to re-unlock trophies as you play.

However, single-action trophies earned from activities like completing Quests, will have to be redone by replaying the Quest from the Codex.
