New updates are added at the bottom of this story…….
The original story (published July 19, 2022) follows:
Fall Guys is a free and popular Battle Royale game available on PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo Switch and Windows.
The game involves 60 players competing against each other. And like in any battle royale game, the player who makes it to the end is crowned the winner.
However, many Fall Guys players are recently reporting that the game is currently down or not working for them.
Fall Guys “Connection Failed” Error Message
If you’re one of those Fall Guys players who’s having trouble logging in, take comfort in the fact that you’re not the only one having trouble with the game.
Many players have adopted Twitter to report that Fall Guys is currently down or not working for them and giving a “Connection Failed” error message. Additionally, user reports on Reddit (1, 2, 3) also convey the same.
Here are some reports for reference:
The game keeps saying “Connection failed, please check your connection”, but my internet is working fine and I can play all my other online games. Tried restarting my console and everything. Nothing works.. (Source)
@FallGuysGame what’s up with the fall guys splash screen. I keep getting an error window saying connection failed, please try again. I restarted the game more than 5 times and nothing. There is nothing wrong with other online games. (Source)
We couldn’t find any workaround that might help you temporarily fix the problem. This means that you will have to wait for the developers to come up with a definitive fix.
Unfortunately, the Fall Guys support team has not yet acknowledged this issue and hopefully it will be resolved soon as players are unable to access the game.
That said, we’ll be keeping an eye out for the latest developments and updating this article as anything noteworthy comes along.
