Hello Tenno,

The team has reached another milestone in the development of Cross Platform Play with the latest Updates/Hotfixes. The time has come for our first public Cross Play test between Xbox and PC users. This post aims to inform you about what you can expect from this test and be the dedicated place where you can provide us with your feedback or issues about your experiences, which is very important to us.

Cross Platform Play Initial Public Test
While this test is active, PC and Xbox players may see a new option appearing in their settings called “Cross Platform Play.”

You can toggle the “Cross Platform Play” setting, allowing Tenno from both platforms to join each other’s squads and complete missions together. There will be a few limitations on some features during this test:

  • No Dojo support
  • No Friend support
  • No Trading or Gifting of items across different platforms
  • No Voice Chat support

 
Based on the results of this test, we will be able to take those findings and continue to refine our feature development for all platforms. Please note that we will update this thread when the test closes and that the length of the test will be dependent on a variety of factors such as server stability. 
 
Why Xbox and PC?
This is just the first step in the journey that is Cross Platform Play. Xbox and PC are similar from an infrastructure perspective, so we are ensuring that any kinks are removed first and then continue on with PlayStation and the Nintendo Switch at another time.
 
Will there be future tests?
We will update you about any future testing, the dates, and the eligible platforms for those tests.
 
When does Cross Platform Play officially launch?
We will announce an official launch date once the feature is ready. Thank you for your patience.
 
What about Cross Save?
Cross Platform Play will be our first direction in getting all Tenno to play together, and we will announce details around Cross Save in a future announcement.
 
What feedback is most beneficial to Warframe for this test?
For players who participate in the test, we would love to hear from you, and there are a couple of things you can do that would be greatly appreciated. When submitting your feedback, please:

  • 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)

 
We are excited to have this test live so that we can continue to connect Tenno across all platforms. With your help, we can iron out major issues and make Cross Platform Play a smoother experience for everyone!
 

UPDATE: Cross Platform Play Initial Test is Over
 
Thank you for participating in our initial Cross Platform Play test for Xbox and PC users. The test is now closed but we are still accepting feedback from participants. This information will help us further develop Cross Platform Play and we look forward to sharing more information about the feature in the future.

UPDATE: Cross Platform Play Test #2 is Live
 
We want to repeat our thanks to those of you who were able to participate in our initial Cross Platform Play Test. Our second public Cross Platform Play test between Xbox and PC users is live. It’s possible that this test could close/end abruptly like the last one did, but we will update this thread if that occurs. We also updated our note on Trading to clarify what to expect during the test.
 
Please continue to report bugs and feedback to us in this thread!

My question is:

In the future, how will cross save work if you have two big profiles on two separate platforms. Please, please tell me they will merge. I have a lot of DIFFERENT cosmetics on both. I need to hear these words from DE. Someone please shed light on this.

We have disabled the Cross Platform Play test so we can investigate/fix the crashes. This is exactly what this public test aimed to do, and we appreciate seeing all your excitement. More tests in the future when we've made some fixes.

  • No Conclave support

This feels really weird to see. Is this the first time that we've had official confirmation by DE on conclave in a long time? Even if that update is that it won't be enabled for initial cross-play tests?

Can we better define "Trading is restricted"?

I was just about ask that as well, since "restricted" means that it should still be possible just with limitations.

If it wasn't possible different wording would have been used like "No Trading between Cross-Platforms".

I didn't see a single xbox icon in trade chat, so I'm guessing they meant "not possible at all".

Is conclave planned for the full release ? Because I've seen some Console gameplay and everyone is spamming Wolf Sledge, Cerata and Telos Boltace on console (Weapons that you guys reworked / buffed for PvE, but they also changed in PvP, making them broken)

Conclave will be hell on earth if you don't fix broken weapons and the saryn elec exploit

Guide on how to deal with Cross Platform

Step 1: go to settings and disable crossplay
Step 2: ???
Step 3: Grofit 

you now have a better gameplay

It'll be fun for friends who started playing on different platforms to be able to play together now though.

The way they worded it being "during the test" I think implies that they do plan to add such functionality later but aren't tackling it right now, least I hope so.

Inb4 'all 4 players 🤣' meme spam lol
