Warframe is Bullet Jumping onto iOS devices!

If you’re just joining us, welcome to Warframe! Join over 70 million players and experience 10+ years of incredible content via the most massive and constantly evolving free-to-play sci-fi universe, now on iOS devices.

Master your Warframe and chart your own story through a vast Origin System as you unleash its Abilities and wield a wide array of devastating weaponry to effortlessly annihilate hordes of enemies on sight. In between the carnage, you can earn or instantly unlock 50+ different Warframes — each with unique suites of powers to control the mayhem any way you want.

If you’re a returning Tenno, we hope you’ll enjoy a brand new way to play Warframe! Warframe for iOS was conceived and developed as another way to play the full game. It is the entire, interconnected experience on mobile with optional Cross Platform Save and Cross Platform Play between all other platforms. Warframe’s iOS launch would not have been possible without the help of our development partners at Nitro Games!

How much of the Warframe experience will be available on iOS?
Warframe on iOS is the entire, interconnected Warframe experience with optional Cross Platform Play and Cross Platform Save with all other Platforms. Players will have access to all of the same gameplay and story content, including our recently released Whispers in the Walls Update, available in every other version of Warframe.

Will iOS update simultaneously with other Platforms?
Yes! Updates to Warframe arrive on all platforms at the same time. This now includes iOS.

What is the total install size on iOS?
Initial install from the App Store is 99.4.MB. Following the initial install, you will be given the option to download the Tutorial (4GB) or Full Game (10GB). With Tutorial, any missing data will be downloaded as you play and may result in longer load times.

Is Warframe on iOS Cross Platform Save Compatible?
Yes. Upon creating an account on iOS, you can visit the Account Management page on warframe.com to link your Warframe Mobile account to your Cross Platform Save account.

Cross Platform Save setup instructions can be found in the Account Management Page.

Can I use an external controller?
Yes, you can sync up iOS compatible controllers to your mobile device to control Warframe. Bluetooth game controllers such as Playstation and Xbox game controllers, as well as lightning and USB-C connected controllers such as Backbone are supported.

Learn how to pair your controller of choice here.

How do touch screen controls work?
We have prepared a breakdown of the touch control UI to assist you with this new way to play Warframe. Visit our Mobile Touch Control Guide.

Can I use a keyboard and mouse?
Keyboard and Mouse support is not available on iOS at this time.

Where is Warframe on Android?
Warframe for Android devices is now in development. We will host an Android Closed Beta at a future date. Tenno can opt-in to be notified of the Android Closed Beta by visiting warframe.com/android.

What is happening to the Warframe Companion App?
The Warframe Companion App will continue to function for all Tenno who have installed it. During Warframe’s iOS launch window, we are temporarily delisting the Warframe Companion App on the iOS App Store in order to avoid confusion.

For Android users, the Companion App will remain searchable on the Google Play Store, and will likewise continue functioning as normal for those with the app installed.

Can mobile players be hosts for game sessions?
If so... this is a very, very bad idea.

 

Without dedicated servers for the game, allowing mobile players to be the primary connection router is only going to create a pretty bad experience. Already we can see this with the older consoles (and the Switch), and mobile hardware is going to be on a level below those.

 

Disabling crossplay isn't the answer as then it cuts out anyone on modern consoles / PC.

Why no support for keyboard and mouse when they can readily pair to iOS devices? 

We hope to have keyboard and mouse support available for you in the future! Ensuring touch control & gamepad (controller) quality was priority for launch.

il y a 52 минуты, Temchak a dit :

Не могу найти никакой информации о том, почему в России нет распространения приложения Warframe для iOS. Или он не придет?

Я имею в виду, что приглашение там...

 image.png? ex=65e74c61&is=65d4d761&hm=a51

Поменяй регион на штаты и можешь скачать, правда толку пока не вижу, потому как связать учетные записи так и не получается. 
 

p.s. На 11 айфоне достаточно сильно просидает фпс и оптимизация в целом оставляет желать лучшего.

I don’t understand, did you only complete the first mission of the tutorial or did you go even further after receiving the ship? because I can’t link my accounts into one and I get a login error. give a more detailed description and has your progress been uploaded to your ios account?

So i logged into Warframe App with my AppleID and got thrown into the tutorial mission. Here I tried to link the fresh Account with my main account directly. It did not let me, it said i had to login into my fresh Account once. So i thought i might have to finish the tutorial, where you get your ship. As i stood in my Orbiter after the mission i quit and linked my accounts now it worked. Then i logged in again on mobile and cross save worked. But i am missing the mobile login rewards

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the booster was for the fresh iOS account. When you linked the iOS to the main PC account, the stuff in the iOS account is deleted, so the booster was deleted. The merger was for accounts created before the Cross-save announcement/release date (can't remember). Again, correct me if I'm wrong.

We did state elsewhere that you would be able to access your bonus items after connecting with Cross Platform Save if you chose to do so! So we are investigating why some users aren't getting them. :)

Pre-Order Bonus & Day 1 Login Reward

  • The Bombyx Syandana and a 3-Day Affinity Booster await upon first login!
    • Note: if you decide to include your iOS account in Cross Platform Save, the new iOS account will Link (not Merge) to your Primary Cross Platform Save Account. In these cases, we have ensured that you will receive the Bombyx Syandana and 3-Day Affinity Booster on the Primary Account.

I didn't know that! I linked my iOS account like 30 minutes ago and I did see the message about the syndana and the booster, but I thought I was going to lose them, I was ok with it. I just checked my inventory and the syndana is there! Can't confirm about the booster, I have 20 days of it and didn't check before. I hope it's get resolved.

Chiming in here as well to say I’m having some “Login Failed” prompts while attempting to link my iOS account to my primary. The tutorial has been completed fully.

Happend to me too. Got around by "using" another AppleID and then logging in in the browser login.

would be very cool if this could be investigated...
the only thing that happened after linking to iOS was getting this new Aura Mod, and that's it, regardless if i log in to my main account on PC or iOS4rETIhq.jpg
