The PS4 version of Warframe will have “the same identity” as it’s PC brethren, Digital Extremes tell us. The only real difference between the builds will reflect in gameplay controls, obviously. Other than that, both titles will run on the same wave length.
“Aside from unique PS4 features such as the DualShock controller, the PC and PS4 skus will maintain the same identity,” assured Associate Producer on Warframe for PS4, Pat Kudirka. This equivalency also includes updates and DLC.
“The gameplay will remain the same, the release of rhythm of updates and content will be in line, and both platforms will be treated as equal,” Kudirka says.
While there were some antecedent discrepancies over the attention the PC version would lose once the PS4 version began production, worries have since dialed down as the PC build still sees a steady stream of content.
“There was some initial hesitation from the community as they were worried that a large portion of the development team would transition over to PS4 development. That hasn't been the case as Warframe still continues to release just as much content with our updates (or more for that matter) as we have in the past,” Kudirka explained.
Just last week Digital Extremes released Warframe Update 10, dubbed Shadow of the Dead. The update includes new weapons, missions, levels, and mods - special modification buffers players can outfit their frames with. SOTD also introduced the new Nekro frame and a new set of sentinels - robotic support pets that fight and protect frames. Be sure to check the forum site for the full list of changes and add-ons.
Warframe is presently in an open beta for PC and will launch alongside PS4 on Nov. 15 in NA, Nov. 29 in the UK.
