Warframe is a free-to-play third-person shooter game that also has role-playing action elements. As such, I think it shares many similarities with a game like Destiny 2.
Warframe was developed and published by Digital Extremes, released for PC on March 25, 2013, and later ported to many consoles.
Currently, you can play Warframe on Xbox One, Playstation 4, Nintendo Switch, Playstation 5, and Xbox Series consoles. In 2022, a mobile version was added.
So is Warframe cross-platform, meaning is Warframe crossplay so you can play with friends across different gaming platforms?
No, at the time of writing, Warframe isn’t cross platform, meaning Warframe isn’t crossplay between PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, or Nintendo Switch. However, crossplay is slated to be made available in 2022. I’ll update this article as soon as I hear more.

Here are the answers to some other common questions about Warframe:
Is Warframe cross progression?
No, at the time of writing, Warframe isn’t cross-progression, which means that the game doesn’t support cross-save between different platforms. However, as I understand it, cross-save should be implemented together with crossplay in 2022, and I’ll update this article as soon as I hear more.
Is Warframe on Mobile?
No, Warframe isn’t available on mobile when writing this, but this should change in 2023.

You’ll be able to fight these various races and groups with the biomechanical suits that the Tenno use called Warframes.
