The hugely popular multiplayer party game Fall Guys has finally launched on the Switch and it looks like there are so many of you trying to play at once, the servers collapsed in exhaustion!
With the game launching on Switch and Xbox platforms (all for free, no less!), it was kind of a sad inevitability that it would feel the weight of the new players joining the fold. The good news, though, is that it looks like the servers are mostly back to normal, though you should expect a few teething issues here and there over the coming days.
Here’s what the official Twitter account had to say about the issue:
Very droll! At least developer Mediatonic took pretty quick action here; Hopefully, the majority of players will not even notice that the servers are having a few issues, but if you tried playing on launch day, you might have found yourself waiting in the lobby for quite a while.
Be sure to check out our review of Fall Guys for the Switch, too. We mentioned that while there were some frame rate quirks and instances of lag, “the Switch version offers a solid way to play if you’re looking for some barmy 60-bean battling and the barrier to entry has never been lower”.
Have you managed to play Fall Guys yet, or have the server issues prevented you from diving in at this time? Let us know with a comment below.
