Update 6, August 8, 4.16am PT: Fall Guys developer Mediatonic acknowledged the server issues with the game on Friday, saying that it marked an all-new record number of players coming into the game, which is creating issues. A "longer-term fix" is now in the works, with the team going into "maintenance mode".
The team then followed up with this update on Satuday morning, saying the game would go into maintenance again, before the game would start coming back online once more:
HOOT! We've not been tweeting when the servers have been online as there have been hundreds of thousands of people playing even when we secretly switch them on...In 20 mins we'll be going into maintenance again, then we'll start bringing it back online after a short periodAugust 8, 2020
The developer has also mentioned extra rewards for players when the game is running effectively.
We're really sorry for the poor experience today. We kept seeing things improve as we fixed things, but with record numbers of players today, new issues have emerged. We're now moving into maintenance mode so that we can implement a longer-term fix.August 8, 2020

Update: We've been able to get into a game of Fall Guys on PS4 – so it might be worth checking again and seeing if it works for you. Today we've had matchmaking issues just getting into a game, though, after multiple attempts.
Demand is incredibly high for the game, and the developers have posted this message, explaining that account creation on PS4 is temporarily disabled while the servers are coming back online:
We tried to secretly bring the servers back online but 100,000 of you all came flooding back in lol. To cope with this, we're temporarily disabling account creation for PS4!We'll let you know as soon as it's back!Thanks for your patience!August 4, 2020
Things are "slowly coming back online" according to the official account. A more recent tweet says "Hopefully server issues will continue to improve (opens in new tab)."
We're still hard at work on improving things - things are slowly coming back online. We'll post here as soon as we have more updates!Thanks for bearing with us!August 4, 2020
Original story: Fall Guys is now available as one of this month's PS Plus free games, and it's the new multiplayer hotness on PS4 – so hot, in fact, that players are encountering 'No Match Found' error when trying to get a game. Luckily, the developers at Mediatonic are working on a fix.
At least 120,000 players were playing the game at launch earlier today – well beyond expectations, and leading to the developers saying they were "beefing up" their servers to deal with demand. The hope was the game would be fixed within 30 minutes of this tweet (opens in new tab), and that matchmaking would be switched off while that happened, but more than an hour later, we're getting this message in-game:
As of early afternoon UK time, the developers said on the official account that they're "still fixing things". A later message says "lots of progress" is being made on the issue.
We're still fixing things, we probably shouldn't have tried to guess how long it would take 😅Very soon™ though 👀Anyone got any spicy Fall Guys memes to pass the time?August 4, 2020
Hopefully, it'll be fixed at some point today, then – we'll keep you updated on the latest.
In terms of player numbers, this looks like a promising start for Fall Guys. This 60-player multiplayer game sees each participant racing their character across TV game show-style physical obstacles, with everyone racing to the end of the course to claim a crown. Fall Guys has launched on PS4 and PC, though it's free with PS Plus for a month, similar to how Rocket League launched back in 2015.
