Here's the updated full 4 minute PS4 trailer
The Sony blog posted details on the Warframe: Ultimate Fan Pack you get for "pre-ordering" the game. (But since its a free-to-play game, it's really like hey signup for an it before hand get this for free)
The Ultimate Fan Pack includes:
- A PlayStation Braton Rifle weapon skin
- 50 Platinum
- 20,000 Credits
People can signup through
SEN on the web, (Appears to be down) or through PlayStation Store on your PS3 — found in the PS4 section — by November 12th.
For the people who may already playing Warframe on PC and thinking about trying out on PS4. Digital Extremes released some details on their community forums about how Cross Play between PS4 and PC will work in the future. (Note: Not a Day 1 feature)
To sum it up, if you have an account on the PC, you can transfer a of your progress to the PS4 (excluding your clan membership and platinum). Your account on the PC will be unaffected after the transfer, and from then on you will have two seperate accounts. How the cross-play comes into effect is whenever the PS4 and PC builds are sync'd players on both platforms will be able to play together. The developers have stated on their their latest livestream reason they cannot guarantee cross-play all the time and why accounts are not shared is because they at this moment do not know how often or when their updates will get released on the PS4. On the PC they have been able to release updates as frequently and whenever they wanted. It is understandable why they want to keep that flexibility.
Warframers - here is a quick update on PS4 progress as we're screaming toward deadlines and certification!
I’m afraid it's mixed news here. Account duality is dead (update timing has killed this, explanation below). Meaning your PC account cannot be shared back and forth between the PC and PS4.
HOWEVER, we have worked out an alternate solution: a one-time account migration option that will copy over your current progress to PS4. This PS4 cloned account will have everything you currently have except for Platinum (contractual) and Clan Dojo/Membership (technical). You will find this one-time migration option in the Account Management area of the website when PS4 launches in your territory.
Your PC account is unaffected by this migration and both will then progress independently... arguably this solution is a better way for players that want to try out PS4 but want to keep their foot in the door on Warframe PC with uninterrupted updates of the latest and greatest.
Currently cross platform play is a go but likely not for Day 1, expect this sometime during launch window. The two platforms will cross-play only when build versions are in sync (see below).
Why is duality dead? Why cross-platform play isn't always enabled? It comes down to update frequency.
We don't have guarantees yet on when PS4 updates will come out which means they may drift out of sync by several days from PC. If you get a cool new weapon on PC and PS4 does not have it yet, stuff breaks. We could hold PC back, but we didn't think that was fair. Even then, coordinating with multiple console region QA departments adds too many unknowns to bank on this.
I hope this makes sense! I appreciate your understanding, I'm looking forward to seeing some of you Warframers on PS4 next month!
While I'll be sticking to the game on the PC, I have friends who only play shooters on consoles, and thus this presents an opportunity for us to play Warframe with each other. It would be nice if in the future, like Steam if developers could push out updates / patches whenever they like. Perhaps that's when we will get full cross-compatibility.
