When you boot up a game and try to jump into it, things may not always go the way you plan. Sometimes in Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout, you won’t be able to join a game when you encounter the loading screen error, which is a problem that leaves you stuck on the screen, and no matter how long you wait, you’re stuck there until you turn off the game. What is this error, and is there a workaround it?
After you know this error is happening, the best thing for you to do is close the application and boot it back up. Doing this usually drops you out of the game you were playing, so if you jumped into it with friends, it’s better to wait until their match wraps up to join them back up again. However, the problem happened likely because of the server issues. There’s no way to prevent it, and it could happen in the future. Luckily, the solution is reasonably quick, and not something that takes you too much time. It does cancel your current game, unfortunately.
It could also be linked to server issues. If you attempt to load into the game multiple times, and find yourself stuck on the loading screen, it’s likely because the servers down and you can’t access the game. You can check the server status of Fall Guys to see if its everyone or if it’s you. When it’s everybody, you may want to grab another title to play while you wait for them to return.
So long as you remove the error when it happens, you should be able to play the game when you boot it back up for the next match. It may happen again, but the developers may have a solution for it in the future.
