Letter13 Posted July 18, 2021 Share Posted July 18, 2021 Update: Crossplay/Cross-save is just around the corner! Key takeaways: - Xbox/PC only crossplay test (due to similar infrastructure), PlayStation/Switch not yet supported - Some features unavailable in crossplay (dojo, conclave, friend list and trading) - Can be enabled in game options on PC and Xbox to join the public test - Cross Save not yet available; once Crossplay is ironed out, cross-save will be implemented - Feedback is greatly desired from players who participate (please post in the official announcement thread or in the feedback subforum): Include the platform you are playing on Add screenshots/videos of any issues encountered during the test For PC, send your EE.log, which can be found by clicking on the “Get Logs” option under the Diagnostics section of the Settings in the launcher Please attach EE.Log in a Support Ticket with the title “CROSS PLATFORM PLAY BUG” For PC, detail what happened before any crash occurred when submitting a ticket using Warframe’s crash report tool (it will generate a WAR number) Happy crossplaying, Tenno! ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- Old content: Hey folks! So I'm sure you've all (or mostly all heard) the great news regarding Cross-Play and Cross-Save coming to Warframe soon: While we do not have all the details yet, this long requested feature is finally making its way to the game (and the moderators will no longer have to lock the monthly/weekly/daily thread asking about it). Folks on different platforms will be able to play together, and users will (presumably) be able to freely transfer their progress between platforms on a whim (or perhaps 'unify' different platform accounts in a similar fashion to some other games, like Destiny, where all linked platform accounts access a singular set of account data stored on DE's servers). I decided to re-create the megathread of yore (the one from 2018 with 69 pages) with some up-to-date info and a more relevant opening post. Please feel free to discuss and speculate on this upcoming feature here! Some of the major talking points popping up in the thread: Platinum between platforms - Will platinum be merged between platforms, or will platinum bought on one platform remain on that platform? (Think Silver from Destiny 2) Trading & Market Questions - Will players across platforms be able to trade with one another? Or will it be restricted to the platform a player is currently on? The market-scape between platforms is vastly different for platinum prices on some tradeable goods, and cross-save/cross-play may wind up balancing/equalizing prices across platforms TENNOGEN - A real hot topic, seeing as the method of implementation is radically different between PC and Console; will Tennogen skins transfer when moving between platforms? Will PC players be able to purchase Tennogen skins for platinum when playing on consoles? Platform exclusive cosmetics - Similar to Tennogen, will they transfer? In regards to the Obsidian/Jade skins, etc. Method of Cross-Save - Some players have expressed interest in a 'Merge' style of cross-save (where items from multiple platforms are merged/combined) versus more traditional style of 'Overwrite' style of cross-save (where the data of the 'master' account overwrites/overrides the linked accounts of other platforms--think Destiny 2). When it will go live - There are no announced dates for when it will be released, though there is speculation that it may drop with The New War. This thread will hopefully be able to start compiling some good sets of questions we can field to DE staff for upcoming devstreams. I for one am very eager to hear more about the manner in which cross-save and cross-play will be implemented. Update: Thanks to @xcrimsonlegendx for the update on goals for linking/merging/cross-saving accounts!
