Have mercy for the servers.

Fall Guys has officially entered a new era, having relaunched on June 21, 2022, as a free-to-play title that’s now available on Switch, Xbox, PlayStation, and PC.

Fall Guys’ initial launch back in 2020 was plagued with server errors, but they were later fixed toward the end of August thanks to the efforts of the developer. The slight decline in the game’s popularity after its initial spike was also an important factor since there were slightly fewer players crowding the servers.

With the free-to-play launch comes a wave of new content, including new challenges, rewards, game shows, and an update to the game’s progression system.

This means Fall Guys is currently experiencing a player overload as massive as the one during its launch. If you’re seeing a “failed to login” error, here’s what you need to know.

How to fix the “failed to login” error in Fall Guys

The “failed to login” error is a server-side error and there are only a few things you can try out while waiting for Mediatonic to fix the problem.

Before trying any of the fixes below, check the official social media accounts of Fall Guys to make sure there isn’t a global server issue since if that’s the case, you won’t be able to log in no matter what you do.

While only Mediatonic can fix this problem by patching up the servers, you can push your luck by forcing yourself into the crowded servers just when someone’s about to leave. The best way to do this is by relaunching your game over and over again until you get in. You can also try re-logging into Steam, PSN, Xbox Live, or the Epic Games platform at least once during this process to make sure there aren’t any connectivity issues between you and the servers.

One other fix that works wonders to fix any connectivity problems that may be caused by your internet service provider is resetting your modem and PC/console at the same time. But this step will only help you get rid of the “failed to login” error when there isn’t a known server issue. The resetting process will help you re-establish the connection between your router and ISP, which will also reset the connection you’ll have to the game’s servers.

If none of the above fixes seem to work for you and there aren’t any server problems going on, we strongly recommend you to contact your platform’s support system or Mediatonic so they can look into the roots of your connectivity issue. But your most likely solution for this problem is just to wait for Mediatonic to sort out the issues on its side.
