NVIDIA acknowledges Warframe issues & removes game from GeForce NOW as it works on a fix

In late November, NVIDIA revealed that it had removed several games like Dark Souls III, TEKKEN 7, and Project CARS 2 from its video game streaming service GeForce NOW, something that wasn’t received well by fans.

The platform has a huge collection of games that you can tap into using your NVIDIA Shield, PC, or even your Android smartphone. If anything, GeForce NOW offers something similar to what Google Stadia is doing.

The major difference between the two, however, is that while Stadia players stream games purchased directly from the Google service, GeForce NOW lets players stream games purchased on other platforms like Steam and uPlay.

In the past few days or so, Warframe gamers on GeForce NOW have been experiencing some issues where they are locked out of the game. Some even go ahead and change their passwords, but the game won’t let them into their accounts.

Even though reports of Warframe issues on GeForce NOW started showing up several days ago, more are still flocking the NVIDIA forums with the same cases and even worse incidences.

Apparently, some Warframe gamers have been banned because an auto-ban system detects NVIDIA platform as third-party software.

Same here I got banned like 3 days ago,contacted the warframe support,they said that Nvidia GeForce now servers are compromised and nobody should even play warframe from these servers,they’re aware of that but they can’t and won’t fix it since it’s GeForce now’s problem,so please don’t play from this platform till it’s fixed,too many got banned like this already sadly.

Apparently, the ban is happening because NVIDIA servers think the game was downloaded from an unofficial website, which isn’t the case for affected Warframe players on GeForce NOW.

On the brighter side, the company has come out to acknowledge the Warframe GeForce NOW issues and confirmed that it is working with the game’s publisher to establish the cause of the problem and hopefully fix it.

Hi everyone, we’re aware that some users are experiencing issues with Warframe. The game has been temporarily removed from GeForce NOW while we investigate, and we’re working with the publisher at this time. When we have more news, we’ll share here. Thanks!
