When you encounter the “Unable to Connect” error code in Warframe, there will also be a message that reads, “Please ensure you have the latest Warframe update installed,” which is hinting at that your current game program is out of date, even if you keep this updated and believe you have the latest version. Thankfully, this is an easy fix to work around to bypass this annoying error message.

Here are the steps you need to follow for every console in Warframe where you might encounter this error.

  • On PlayStation: Press Options on the Warframe game tile and select Check for Updates.
  • On Xbox: On to My Games & Apps, scroll down to Manage, and select Updates. Wait for your console to check all of your game files.
  • On Steam: Your PC should tell you right away if the game needs an update or not.
  • On Nintendo Switch: Press the plus button on your game tile and go to Software Update. Select Via the Internet for your console to look for an update.

If your platform is not showing you need to update the game at all, we recommend checking the server status for the game. If everything seems to be looking fine, be sure to fully exit out of your game, restart your console or PC, and check your internet connection. Restart your internet router if needed.

Alternatively, a quick hard reset of your machine should work. This is a common issue for console players on Warframe, and resetting the platform is a good way for the game to automatically update.
