It’s a veritable jamboree of next-gen news tonight, and now developer Digital Extremes has revealed the various Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5 enhancements coming to celebrated free-to-play space shooter Warframe on launch day.
On the basic fidelity front, Warframe’s next-gen update will deliver “up to” 4K resolution and 60fps on Xbox Series X/S and PS5, and Digital Extremes is also promising “drastically improved” loading times. However, the sexier updates come in the form of a game-wide “texture remaster”, which is said to add increased levels of detail and colour, and will reduce required hard-drive space in the process. Additionally, Warframe will receive swish new dynamic lighting through its Enhanced Renderer.
“From the neon underbelly of Fortuna, to our newest landscape on the Infested moon of Deimos,” says Digital Extremes, “there’s no better place to see the stunning differences. The light from the sun now casts long shadows through the trees, foliage creates dynamic shadows as you stalk through it, and the reflections of the dense Cetus market can be seen across your Warframe as you stroll through.”
