Warframe's Major PS5 Update Launches This Week

The PS5 version boasts a 4K resolution and 60 frames per second, plus some bonuses for all players.


An official PlayStation 5 version of Warframe will launch on November 26, developer Digital Extremes has announced. The upgraded PS5 version of the game has been detailed on the game's official website, and it sounds like a big update.

Warframe on PS5 will run at 60fps, and support resolutions up to 4K. The visuals will be updated with new dynamic lighting too, and loading times will be cut down across the whole game.

Furthermore, the adaptive triggers on the new DualSense controller will be given a workout by this version of the game. Your weapons will be felt in the triggers, with melee attacks and gunfire being reflected by the controller. Crossplay and save are available, too, so you can continue your PS4 characters' journey and play with friends who are still on PS4. Unfortunately, PS5 cross-save does not extend to other versions of the game.

Some freebies are coming for PlayStation Warframe players, too. On PS5, the PlayStation Plus Booster Pack V will be available to PS Plus members, featuring the following items:

  • PS5-themed Obsidian Sedai Syandana
  • 7-Day Affinity Booster
  • 7-Day Credit Booster
  • 100,000 Credits
  • 100 Platinum

There's also an event for Warframe's 7th anniversary with PlayStation running until December 2, and players who log into the game on PS4 or PS5 before then will receive the following:

  • Paracesis Obsidian Skin
  • Obsidian Monast Sugatra
  • Fully-built Forma
  • 3-Day Resource Booster

Furthermore, the Azura Excalibur Glyph and the PSIV Color Palette will be available for the massively reduced price of 1 Credit during this period.

In a post on the PlayStation Blog, Digital Extremes boss Sheldon Carter has posted some thoughts on how the studio is "bringing nearly eight years of evolutionary content into the future for PS5." Carter also points out the cross-generation play between the PS5 and PS4 versions is "a first for Warframe." It's a nice read for long-time Warframe fans who have picked up a PS5.

While Warframe will also get an Xbox Series X upgrade, the details and timing for this version have not been announced yet. The game is playable on the system right now through backwards compatibility.
