The Fall Guys servers are back online after maintenance [Updated]

Update 11:30AM: Maintenance is now complete, and the matchmaking servers should now be back online.


The original post follows:

Medaitonic’s Fall Guys is offline again for a “short period of planned maintenance”. How long that short period lasts for remains to be seen, the last time they did some quick maintenance the game was offline for the best part of a day.

We will keep an eye on things and let you know when it’s back online.

Fall Guys has been an absolute sensation for the team at developer Mediatonic and publisher Devolver Digital, with the companies revealing that they’ve sold over 2 million copies on Steam in the game’s first week. That’s before you take into account however many people have been playing via PlayStation 4, where it’s free on PlayStation Plus in August.

Thankfully, the game has overcome the serious server troubles that they encountered as the game launched. Last 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, but it was always going to be a streaming darling, and shot to the top of Twitch as well.

This led to an entire day being effectively wiped out on Friday, as they attempted to shore up the servers and add capacity, only to have the servers overwhelmed every time they tried to turn them back on. Thankfully, they were able to put all the fixes in place, add capacity, and by Saturday morning, the game seemed to be running smoothly through the rest of the weekend.

We posted our Fall Guys review last week, saying:

Full of cute and cuddly jelly beans 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.

Fall Guys is out now for PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam.

  1. Nope. Still getting connection errors. And in some ways, they’re worse now, since it can take ages to realise it can’t connect.
