Warframe developer Digital Extremes has showcased some of the next-gen visual updates coming to the hit online title - and it's a pretty substantial update. In addition to smooth 4K 60fps visuals, and fast loading thanks to the PlayStation 5's super-fast SSD storage - a brand new Enhanced Renderer is also overhauling the lighting and other effects. Not only that but all textures have been remastered for both detail and performance.
It all looks stunning, and the following trailer even has a few shots to show the massive improvement players can expect going from Ps4 to PS5.
On PlayStation 5 (the update is also coming to Xbox Series X and PC) Digital Extremes will also support cross-gen play and take advantage of the new console's Activity features - and the impressive features of the new DualSense controller.
NEXT-GENERATION’S ENHANCED POWER AND FIDELITY
Taking full advantage of the power of next-gen consoles, Warframe will run at up to 4K resolution and 60fps. Drastically improved loading times get players into the action as fast as possible and create a seamless experience as Tenno race from player-filled towns to massive and weird Open Worlds.
The all new Enhanced Renderer ups the ante on dynamic lighting. From the neon underbelly of Fortuna, to our newest landscape on the Infested moon of Deimos... there’s no better place to see the stunning differences. The light from the sun now casts long shadows through the trees, foliage creates dynamic shadows as you stalk through it, and the reflections of the dense Cetus market can be seen across your Warframe as you stroll through.
A game-wide texture remaster adds new levels of detail and enhanced color throughout the experience and also reduces the space Warframe will take up on your hard drive.
SQUAD UP WITH CROSS-GENERATION PLAY
This new hardware generation also elevates cooperative team-play by giving squads around the world one of their most desired features: cross-generation play.
For PS4 and PS5 owners, this means Tenno will be able to move seamlessly between platforms, playing with teammates regardless if they’re on PS4 or PS5. Gamers’ profiles and their progress will be saved and will follow them as they move onto PS5.
ACTIVITIES, NEXT-GEN CONTROLS & MORE ON PLAYSTATION 5
The next generation of Warframe also takes advantage of many of the new and unique features of Sony’s PlayStation 5.
Progress Activities will show you exactly how close you are to earning a Trophy, while Challenge Activities will get you right into the action with no need to load the game. The first will be a Sanctuary Onslaught Challenge, with more to come.
At launch using the PS5’s Adaptive Triggers, players will experience the impact of every shot fired with each trigger pull, bringing a new level of immersion and thrill to your actions without comprising the tight, fast, fluid and responsive controls that you can only get in Warframe.
In the future, as Digital Extremes explores Sony’s advanced Haptic technology, it aims to further immerse the player with unique vibration patterns that match in-game environments: from feeling the cold snow crunch under your feet on Venus in contrast to the soft-footing of a dusty Mars settlement.
PlayStation 5 owners are also getting a nice little bonus in the form of a free Warframe: PlayStation Plus Booster Pack which will feature Sedai Obsidian Syandana inspired by the new DualSense controller.
