At this years Tennocon, Warframe developers Digital Extremes showed off some brand new information on their game’s next major expansion: The New War. Players have been waiting for this expansion since its’ first tease back in 2019, and it looks like the wait was absolutely worth it.
The largest addition coming to Warframe will be the new cinematic quest also referred to The New War. This story quest will be larger than any introduced to the game up until this point and set up new expansions coming in the future. This quest involves a series of missions surrounding a new enemy faction known as the Sentinents: Artificial life forms that have begun to conquer territory at a terrifying rate. In order to stop this new threat, the Tenno (the space ninjas who you play as) must team up with side characters from other factions throughout the galaxy. This marks the first time that Warframe players have gotten the chance to play as characters other than the Tenno, and each side character will have a unique loadout and set of skills, so be excited for some new, more varied gameplay on the way. However, the developers were clear on the fact that this expansion will still focus on the Tenno and their fight throughout the galaxy.
The other major update on the way will bring cross-play and cross-saves to Warframe. During the livestream, developers showed off a game containing a character on PC, Playstation, Switch, and even mobile! Not only does this mean that players who already have the game will get the chance to play with friends on other consoles, but it also reveals that a mobile version of Warframe is in the works. Joining games like Genshin Impact and Call of Duty: Mobile already on mobile phones, it’s quickly becoming clear that developers are seeing mobile as a more important platform every day.
Play anywhere. With anyone.
Cross Play and Cross Save are coming to #Warframe on all platforms, including mobile.

On an important note, the official Warframe twitter has confirmed that cross-save will only work between PS4 and PS5, so don’t expect to port a character from the Switch to next-gen console. You can watch The New War reveal trailer below.
