Update 6PM: We’re back online and playing a game! After a lot of downtime and connectivity issues, Fall Guys seems to be working. Sometimes. You will need patience while matchmaking in order to get a game, that’s for sure. There are also still no updates from the Mediatonic team about how things are performing as we head into the evening, but things are “working” right now.

Update 3:50PM: We’re seeing connection errors during matchmaking with the message, “Connection to the Server timed out. Please check the settings and try again.” There are no settings to check on PS4, though!

No updates have been posted about the matter on either of the Fall Guys Twitter accounts since 1:39PM, but we’re sure the Mediatonic team are working hard to resolve the issues.

Update 2PM: Uh oh, the servers are still struggling, because people rushed to play too quickly…

Update 1PM: Fall Guys’ server maintenance has finally ended after over seven hours! It sounds like it’s been a big job for Mediatonic as they’ve added capacity and enhanced the servers ahead of the weekend, while also fixing a few exploits with regard to Steam player names and hacking crowns and kudos from the store. However, note that the servers are “slowly” coming back online, so be patient while trying to matchmake for the next hour or so.

The original post follows.


Mediatonic have taken the Fall Guys servers offline this morning to perform maintenance and add capacity ahead of the game’s first weekend after launch.

Trying to play the game this morning will see the following message pop up.

The Matchmaker is currently down for maintenance whilst we add more capacity, please check back soon for updates.

There’s no word on when they expect to have the servers back online – Update 12:30PM: maintenance has been ongoing for over 7 hours at this point – but in the meantime, they’ve been having more social media fun times with a few polls.

While the main Fall Guys twitter account has been keeping people updated, there’s also the Fall Guys Server Owl account, which has no less silly nonsense on it, despite supposedly being more technical and informative.

So, what do you think to see-saw?

As you can see, very little has changed in their social media approach since yesterday’s The Witcher and Cyberpunk 2077 love in, where they teased or joked about some kind of future collaboration.

On Wednesday, Mediatonic revealed that the first 24 hours had seen over 1.5 million players ran headlong into walls of doors, spinny hammer and swinging balls, and it’s this sheer demand that overwhelmed the company’s servers. That was obviously helped by the game being dropped in the laps of PlayStation Plus subscribers as one of August’s free games, but it was always going to be a streaming darling, and shot to the top of Twitch as well.

It’s no surprise that the game has been struggling, and with all of that attention, this weekend is sure to be peak Fall Guys time, and therefore quite critical for the game’s servers to hold up.

We posted our Fall Guys review today, saying:

Full of cute and cuddly jellybean dude bumbling into each other in a race for the crown, Fall Guys is just about the most wholesome battle royale imaginable, and a whole lot of fun.
