Warframe is a free-to-play third-person shooter which takes you across space. At TennoCon 2018, Digital Extremes unveiled the follow-up to Warframe's open-world "Plains of Eidolon" content. The "Fortuna" update takes players to an open-world Venus, and there's also tactical ship-to-ship combat in the works.
Even after all these years, Warframe remains an incredibly popular title on Xbox One, and many gamers have noticed its lack of Xbox One X enhancements. That should hopefully change in the future because a Digital Extremes spokesperson confirmed that the developer was making "casual plans" to upgrade the game for Microsoft's latest hardware.
In an email, we received the following statement confirming that the team was formulating plans to take advantage of the Xbox One X at some point in the future. Hopefully the upgrade will arrive in the next year or so. This console generation is coming to a close and there are rumors of a new Xbox launching in 2020.
Thank you for reaching out about Warframe's capabilities on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. By default on both systems, Warframe offers base support and is fully playable on both new systems. Because of the PlayStation Pro's and Xbox One X's more muscular hardware systems, Warframe runs better currently without any additional work from our side. We have casual plans to upgrade at some point, but we don't have any additional specific details to share right now.
Warframe is listed as PlayStation 4 Pro enhanced on the PlayStation Store, but it just seems to offer "better performance". We've tested out the game on PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X it looks identical. Due to its 1.8 teraflops advantage over the competition, the Xbox One X version doesn't suffer from any stutters and plays the smoothest. We'll keep you posted if we receive an update in the future.
Updated July 23, 2018: The Xbox website says Warframe's Xbox One X upgrade is "in development" so we might hear about it sooner rather than later.
