As of June 21, Fall Guys Free For All is available on most mainstream consoles, and as such is receiving a lot of attention. Some players have come up against a Fall Guys connection error, so here's how you can try to fix it.

After a long and successful time on PlayStation and PC, Fall Guys is now available on Xbox One and Series X/S, as well as Nintendo Switch platforms. This opens it up to a lot more players, and a lot more traffic. That's where the issues lie.

How To Fix Fall Guys Connection Error

There sadly isn't much you can do to fix a connection error, except to be patient and wait it out. As it gets later in the day and more people wake up or have free time, more will be loading up the game on new platforms to try their hand at the wacky stages. This means there is a huge amount of traffic compared to the usual amount of users, and the servers are struggling.

You can try to play on a different platform - for instance, we found we could log in on Nintendo Switch, but not on PlayStation 5. We assume the connection errors will be rectified as soon as possible once player numbers calm down.
