New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….
Original story (published on July 19, 2022) follows:
Fall Guys is a popular free-to-play battle royale game that is available on PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo Switch, and Windows.
The game involves 60 players who compete against each other. And just like any battle royale game, the player who makes it until the end is crowned the winner.
However, many Fall Guys players are lately reporting that the game is currently down or not working for them.
Fall Guys ‘Failed to login’ error message
If you’re among those Fall Guys players who are struggling with logging in, find solace in the fact that you aren’t the only one having issues with the game.
Many gamers have taken to Twitter to report that Fall Guys is currently down or not working for them and it is throwing a ‘Failed to login’ error message. Moreover, user reports on Reddit (1, 2, 3) also convey the same.
Here are some reports for reference:

Unfortunately, the Fall Guys support team hasn’t yet acknowledged this issue and we hope that it gets fixed soon since players are unable to access the game.
That said, we will keep tabs on the latest developments and update this article as and when anything noteworthy comes up.
