The New War Release Date, crossplay and cross save: Warframe’s biggest Updates
The New War is coming and with it a new Warframe, more lore and even new gameplay mechanics! The biggest Update in Warframe’s history is right around the corner but that doesn’t mean it’s going to get boring afterwards. The long awaited feature to play together with your friends on other platforms is already in the works, too! Below you’ll find out everything about The New War release date, as well as crossplay and cross save in Warframe.
The New War Update
First of all, The New War centers around a huge quest which can take up to 8 hours to complete depending on your playstyle! As a reference, Rebecca, the community director, took 4 hours and 45 minutes on her first playthrough. It’ll be entirely solo and cannot be replayed at launch (so maybe don’t take your pink Rhino). To prepare for this quest you need to have a Railjack, a Necramech and all the story quests completed. Since we can expect to fight lots of Sentients in this quest, I also recommend having an Excalibur Umbra and/or the Paracesis at the ready, as they are able to reset the their damage resistance.
Other than that, we’ll be getting Harrow Prime and a whole new Warframe: Caliban! More on him below.
The New War will be released on December 15th!
While it is separated into three acts, all will be playable on the 15th.
New Warframe Caliban

Crossplay and cross save in Warframe
Crossplay allows us to play on our PC with our friends on Playstation, for example! You will no longer be limited by which platform any of you are playing on! But it gets even better: With cross save you can change the platform yourself! So no matter where you originally started playing Warframe, you can now switch around however you like. Wanna move from your PC to the couch? Just keep playing on your Playstation or Xbox. Bored on the train? Pull out your phone and continue!
As it stands right now, we will be getting crossplay and cross save for PC, Xbox, Playstation, Nintendo Switch and even Mobile so virtually every platform!
Crossplay and cross save will be coming in 2022! Unfortunately, Digital Extremes hasn’t given us a specific date yet but considering they claimed to have already hunted an Eidolon together on four different platforms, some groundwork must’ve already been done.
