So it was mentioned a while back that cross-save was being looked into. Do we have any updates on that?

Last I heard was from a few months back it was brought up as a question in one of the community streams. It's still a long way off I'm afraid. We may get more news on it at Tennocon according to some rumors flying around.

Can we start a petition to get them to get on it, I stopped playing because they didn't allow cross save. Its really stupid move considering this game wouldn't be what it is if it was not for the community. The amount of money that most of us have spent playing and time put in, should be rewarded with cross saving not starting over if we want to play on console now.

Might be easier with newer consoles but the big issue is with how each console handles changes. If DE can create a universal, same day update system then it might be doable but PC would be out of the loop because of how updates work. The new test clustering may also speed up the solution.

Yes please cross save, started on NSW but now want to play it on my PC, I even tried "catching-up" but I really can't get into making the grind for a bit of the mods and frames again, I didn't mind and even enjoyed the first time, the second...nope.  Hopefully the more people respond to this thread the more they'll see it's a very desired feature.

This is just the things that'd make my day/lifetime if/when (hopefully WHEN) Cross-save/Cross-progression is implemented. It's literally just what I want to see.

If you disagree, good for you I guess?

Melding Nintendo Switch, Playstation and Xbox Warframe accounts with PC accounts. Allow for multiple accounts on the same platform to be merged. Because for various reasons, some people might have multiples. All purchases from each platform should be re-granted, with the exception of platform exclusives, which just vanish- becoming their value in platinum. Free plat or complimentary platinum that is, which can only be spent on the in-game store- not the player run market.

Event exclusive items stay. That includes recurring events. The sum of your credits from each account are also carried over. You have the choice to start the story over, or carry over your story progress from one (ONE!) of your accounts. Starting the story over might be fun for some, especially considering the new player experience coming this month. Plus you get to rechoose your alignment. (which doesn't actually matter yet, but still)

Forum posts are also all amalgamated under one account, under one name. Your join date is the join date of your oldest forum account.

A criteria could be set for who gets what name in the event of a dispute. For instance, if someone on the PS4 has had the name "Sweeney" for longer than I have and has been active a lot on Warframe recently, they get dibs and I'd have to pick a new one. All names need to be unique across all 4 platforms. Or, we can implement a system similar to Discord and Xbox's new naming system to allow for more naming freedom.

What do you mean by "vanish"? I cannot tell if you want them to be removed, or kept on the relevant platform account. I know I would be pretty unhappy if DE took something I had paid for away and gave me platinum because "it was exclusive to X platform". Assuming I could keep it on the relevant platform I would have no issue, though I am not sure about giving out platinum on the others.

This could be quite fun. You would get to see who uses alt accounts to make their posts seem more popular/reasonable.

Idk. Maybe they keep it but continue only being able to use it on their appropriate platform.

People do that? Sounds pathetic.

But merging accounts is an opt in feature. They'd have to provide the details for each account and consent.

How else would they know which accounts to merge? IP addresses? Then they might merge accounts that belong to two different people using the same internet connection/computer.

Forum and game accounts are linked. They would have to be linked together at the same time as part of the merging process.

They do, and it is. It’s a good way to try and drive up the price on a trading post listing.

Right, but you'd have to provide your gaming account details to start the merging process.

I'm saying you'll have to provide your account details for each one. Name, email, possibly answer your security questions.

If someone decides to make an alt account for scuzzy forum reasons, DE is not just going to automatically know to merge it.

merging them all togather causes issue with the general update progress of the game.
pc is the only platform that gets discounts of plat while all consoles get item purchase discounts.
each platform has its own prices for items an merging them will crash the market, along with X_X make trade chat even harder to sell stuff with most likely 60 posting a second .

while those who have made accounts already on multiple platforms will not be able to merge them under one, unless they have DE delete the progress on the account they want to link to there main.
Doubt many people who spent quite alot of time working on multiple platforms would want to delete all but one account to have it linked to all platforms.
phantasy star online 2 recently had way to link your xbox/windows account to steam which had you get a code from your xbox/windows account an use that when you were logging into steam version. DE would need to do similar method for this.

While cross save progression is still in the works as DE are trying to iron out a S#&$ ton of details
like what happens to the clan your in when you play on a differnt console, will you still be in it or will need to be in a clan just on that platform.
if the you remain in that clan, but there is already another clan on a differnt platform with the same name. what happens then.
how will they deal with players loggging into just pc to try an get the plat purchase discounts, an then go onto a console to buy tennogen stuff with the plat they got cheaper.

I am one of "those players" and I'd scrap my Nintendo Switch, PS4, & Xbox account in a heartbeat to get all my purchases on one account.

I'd reset my story progress too. Heck, it'd be a bonus to reset it. I'm dying to try out the new player experience coming with HOD.

Just get all my purchases/promotional exclusive items on one platform- and maybe let me create a new account so my OCD butt can have a join date that's all even numbers (8/26/2020) and I'd kiss your muddy boots. (but just a peck...closed lips 😳)

DE did state new an old players will be able to do the new player experience. Most likely in are codex we will get to replay vors prize quest which is the intro quest or like with the parkour changes with bullet jumping we got a codex entry that takes you to learning about it.

i can tell, just was giving you idea of what you would have to go through to link all platforms into one account.
not that you should do it now xD as if DE doesnt do cross save progression then you would be seriously pissed off at me.

All I know is, I've spent nigh 2000$ on this game, and knowing me it's only a matter of time until that nigh 2000$ becomes over 2000$ and then some.

I'd really like to have all my purchases on one account, and I'm willing to sacrifice my progression to get it.

I think cross progression / account migration  is for the most part is pointless and should only be a limited time thing when the type system can’t support warframe anymore. I think DE should force their efforts in to more important things for the game.

Hi. Not to be rude, but this statement didn't make sense. Would you please try rephrasing it?

So this question just came up to me and i couldn´t find a recent question to this topic nor a recent answer. 

Is there a way to transfer my PS 4 account over to PC 

AND

are there plans for future Cross-Play functions?

Both of the mentioned Ideas/Problems could go hand in hand pretty well. (Even with sony not wanting to loose players since there would be XPlay)

welcome to the forums tenno ^.^ 

Sadly nope DE is working on cross-save not cross-play you can't play with people across different console but will be able to have your progression saved on all platform.

Sadly at the moment it is not implemented.
