While you can wait for the developers to fix this issue, you may also troubleshoot the problem yourself. Doing this method will rule out the possibility that the issue might be caused by the hardware you are using to play the game.

1. Internet Connectivity Issue

Double-check your internet connection to make sure it is stable. Having an intermittent internet connection may cause connectivity issues regarding multiplayer. If you use WiFi, connect with a wired Ethernet for a more stable performance.

2. Restart the Game

Sometimes, glitches and bugs can be easily fixed by restarting the game. Try to exit and relaunch Lords of the Fallen to see if the issue is fixed. You may also try restarting your PC or console if this helps resolve the issue.

3. Configure Port Forwarding

You might need to configure port forwarding on your router if you are playing Lords of the Fallen on a console such as PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S. Port Forwarding will be useful in improving the performance of your game, ensuring a smoother and more stable experience.

This process allows incoming traffic on specific ports for your router. Port forwarding will vary depending on the model of your router. You can search for your specific router model’s port forwarding instructions online.

4. Keep your Game Updated

You need to check if you are using the latest Lords of the Fallen version. The developers constantly release updates to fix common bugs, including multiplayer problems.

5. Check Matchmaking Settings

Verify the in-game matchmaking settings to check if you have the right type of multiplayer game. You might be filtering out potential matches, causing the multiplayer issue.

  • Choose if you want to do a Co-op or PvP game mode.
  • Select which type of matchmaking you want: Open (to all), Friends Only, or Invite Only.
  • Set the minimum or maximum number of players you want to match with.

6. Try disabling cross-play

The issue might be related to the cross-platform multiplayer. To disable it, open your in-game settings and select Multiplayer. From there, navigate to the “Allow Crossplay?” option and select No.

7. Contact Support Services

If none of the steps above work and you are still experiencing issues with multiplayer, contacting the customer support service for Lords of the Fallen is highly recommended. Alternatively, try your platform’s support service (PC, PlayStation, or Xbox). They may provide you with a better solution tailored to your needs.
