iOS Closed Beta FAQ

Welcome to the Warframe iOS Closed Beta FAQ (Frequently-Asked-Questions)!

Here you can find information on what you can expect from the Closed Beta test as well as device restrictions and region restrictions as the test is only available in certain countries.

Join us as we take the next step towards a full mobile release and make sure to reach out on the Official Forums if you have any additional questions!

See you in the Origin System, Tenno!

Q: How can I take part in Warframe's iOS closed beta?
A: Starting on December 6, Tenno can complete the registration here, to participate in the iOS closed beta. Access to the iOS closed beta will be limited and we may revoke access from accounts who have been inactive for an extended period of time or have not partaken in the beta at all. This will allow us to let more players in, who are eager to test out the mobile version on their compatible iOS device. Please note that registering does not guarantee that you will gain access to the beta.

Q: How long will it take to install Warframe mobile?
While install time will vary based on your Wi-Fi, the initial install may take multiple hours to complete. Please make sure you keep the app open and running in the foreground during the download phase. The “Downloading Updates” install phase will not progress if the app is in the background or the device is in sleep mode. Plugging in your device to confirm a stable power supply is recommended. Please also note that switching to cellular data while the game is downloading, may also require a reset of your download progress.

Q: How will I know if I have successfully registered and gained access to the closed beta?
A: When you have submitted the form and were selected to join the beta, you will receive an email invitation via Apple’s TestFlight program. You will find a link to download TestFlight via the Apple App Store. Open TestFlight on your compatible iOS device and download the Warframe Beta.

Note: Make sure to keep the Warframe mobile app open and running in the foreground during the download phase. The download will not progress if the app is in the background or when the device is in sleep mode.

More information about TestFlight can be found on the Apple Testflight site.

Q: What email address will the invite link be sent to?
A: If you’ve registered to participate in the iOS closed beta and were selected to join, we will be sending the link via email to the email address that you have provided within your Warframe account. Make sure to check your spam folder!

If the Warframe account you are registering with is being used on console (PS, XB & Switch), you can confirm what email address you have associated with your account in the Warframe Forums’ Profile Account Settings. You may need to link an email address, if you haven't already.

Q: Will the Warframe iOS closed beta have any monetized features?
A: This iOS closed beta test will not include any monetization.

Q: Will all Warframe features be available in this closed beta?
A: At present, we are including a limited amount of content during this closed beta period. You will be able to experience some early quests (Vor’s Prize & Once Awake) and starting planets (Earth, Venus & Mercury), plus you can explore the Plains of Eidolon. More content and game features may be added during the closed beta phase.

Our goal is to provide the full Warframe experience once the mobile version launches in the near future. Some of the current notable limitations in this beta are as follows:
- No Voice Chat
- You may experience performance issues based on your device

Q: Should I play on Wi-Fi or via cellular data?
A: At this stage we highly suggest you play over Wi-Fi rather than via cellular data, especially if you are concerned about personal data caps. We don’t want you to hit or go over your cellular data limit while downloading or playing the closed beta!

Q: Where can I provide feedback about the beta?
A: Thanks for testing this beta with us! We appreciate any sort of feedback about your experience with this iOS beta. Let us know how it went in our Warframe Forum.

Q: If I have been invited to take part in this test, do I have to sign an NDA?
A: There is no NDA or similar set of restrictions on what you can discuss publicly. Feel free to share your experiences with your fellow Tenno, and use the Subforum to supply feedback, report bugs, and ask questions or share your opinion.

Our regular Warframe End User License Agreement will apply to this closed beta test on iOS, so if you have any further questions on what can or cannot be done, please refer to the EULAs here.
