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 Conclave support
- No Friend support
- Trading is restricted
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!External link →
