Epic Games is turning out to be a serious competitor to Steam when it comes to the PC gaming market. However, since the platform has listed games like Rocket League and Fall Guys, both for free, the player base and gamers using Epic have skyrocketed.
That said, just like everything tech, Epic Games isn’t perfect and sometimes runs into random bugs and glitches. In this article, we’re looking at account errors in Epic Games when trying to play Fall Guys and giving you six ways to get rid of the problem.

Restart your PC
Restarting your PC can fix several seemingly random issues you might encounter with your games or programs. A simple reboot will reset your system resources and allow your PC to allocate resources and network bandwidth where needed, avoiding such problems.
Restart your router
Restarting your router can help eliminate any unseen network or connectivity issues you may face. You have to turn off your router, wait a bit, and then turn it back on again.
Restart your game
One of the easiest ways to fix the problem is to restart the game simply. Restarting games and programs often resolves temporary bugs in them that can cause crashes or connectivity issues. Once the game is stopped completely (you can verify this using the Task Manager), relaunch it using the Epic Games Launcher, and it should work just fine.
Verify game file integrity
Depending on whether you’re playing the game on Epic Games or Steam, the process for verifying the game file integrity is slightly different. Regardless, ensuring all the game files are present and in working order is essential to avoiding crashes.
On Epic Games
If you’re using Epic Games, follow these steps to verify game file integrity.
Step 1: Open the Epic Games launcher and head to your library. Click the three horizontal dots next to the game’s name. Alternatively, you can just right-click the game tile. Click Manage.
Step 2: In the window that appears, click the Verify button to start a file integrity check.
Epic Games will now automatically download and replace any missing or corrupt game files. Relaunch the game once the check is done, and it should work just fine.
If you’re using Steam, follow these steps to verify game file integrity.
Step 1: Head over to your Steam Library, right-click on Fall Guys and select Properties.
Step 2: Head over to the Local Files tab.
Step 3: Click on Verify integrity of local files… and let Steam do its thing.
Try running or downloading your game again to see if that fixed the error.

If nothing else works, your best bet is to reach out to Epic Games support and let them fix the issue for you. There’s a chance that you might be seeing this error because of a temporary ban on your account that can be caused by a number of different things.
