How to Fix “Unable to connect to server” in Fall Guys

Are you getting a Fall Guys “Unable to connect to server” error?

Here’s the full error message, “Connection error. Unable to connect to server, please check your connection”.

To fix the error, you can try verifying the game files for Fall Guys or logging out and logging in to Epic Games.

Another solution is flushing your DNS using a set of commands and restarting your PC.

Fall Guys recently made the game free to play and it’s also released on Nintendo Switch.

Hence, there is a spike in the number of players and the servers cannot handle the traffic.

If so, you need to wait for a few hours before launching the game again.

Here are 4 methods to fix “Unable to connect to server” in Fall Guys:

Method 1: Verify Fall Guys’ game files

  1. Open the Epic Games Launcher.
  2. Click on “Library”.
  3. Find “Fall Guys”.
  4. Click on the three dots.
  5. Click on “Verify”.

Method 2: Log out of Epic Games and log in

  1. Open the Epic Games launcher.
  2. Select your profile icon.
  3. Click on “Sign out”.
  4. Log back into your Epic Games account.

Method 3: Do a DNS Flush

  1. Open “cmd” using Windows search.
  2. Enter ipconfig/flushdns > ipconfig/registerdns > ipconfig/release.
  3. Enter ipconfig/renew > netsh winsock reset.
  4. Restart your computer.

Method 4: Wait it out

The last method to fix the “Unable to connect to server, please check your connection” error in Fall Guys is to wait it out.

Fall Guys used to be a paid game until they made it free to play.

The change caused the game to surge in popularity as a ton of people started to download it.

As a result, the number of concurrent users has increased tremendously and the servers cannot handle the traffic.

If you try to connect to the game, you might get the “Unable to connect to server” error.

This does not mean that your internet connection is weak.

It just means that the Fall Guys’ servers are overcrowded and you have to wait until it’s less crowded.

Hence, it’s highly recommended that you wait for a few hours before you try playing the game again.

A lot of users went to Twitter to complain about the connectivity issue, but the official Fall Guys Twitter account isn’t responding to any of them.
