Last Epoch Can’t Connect – Here’s Why and How to Fix It

This article will talk about why your Last Epoch can’t connect and how to fix the issues


As of 21st February, Eleventh Hour Games released their new hack-and-slash RPG game known as Last Epoch. And while receptions are very strong, players have reported multiple issues about being unable to log in to the game, or being stuck connecting for seemingly forever.

Given how fresh and new the game is, problems like these are expected, especially since servers are getting jam packed with new players wanting to try out the game.

That’s why this article is made for you, as a guide for what could cause these issues and how to fix them. There are a number of reasons for the problems to occur, so it’s best to go through them one by one.

Sometimes the most common cause of being unable to log in to online games is the fact that the servers might be closed down. When this happens, virtually no player will be able to get inside and will have to wait out the period of time as people work on the server to get it back up again.

Games usually undergo server maintenance before a big patch or major update, and the game will generally notify you about it prior to the update. So keep your eye out for any notifications on the game client or inside the game lobby itself for messages.

Otherwise, you can stay up to date on their social media for any notifications about server updates, as that’s the most likely place where the devs will let people know if they’re working on something. You can check out the official Last Epoch Forum, join their Discord Community, or follow Last Epoch’s official Twitter/X page.

If you were able to conclude that there’s no server maintenance in Last Epoch, then it’s most likely a problem on your side. But don’t worry, because there’s a solution to every problem when it comes to network or connectivity issues. This can range from missing game files to simple internet stability, so let’s go through them one by one:

  • Restarting: If you’ve ever heard the term ‘have you tried turning it off and on again?’ one too many times, that’s because it’s usually a solution that works out for most problems. So try restarting the game, client, or the whole PC. 9 times out of 10, it’ll fix any issue you’re having in the game, not just connection or server issues.
  • Verifying File Integrity: Sometimes, missing game files can cause a LOT of problems to occur, and you might even be unable to get the game up and running. That’s why Steam has a very convenient feature that lets you check if all the game files were installed properly. Simply right click on the game from your Steam Library, go to Properties > Local Files > click on Verify integrity of game files. This process might take a little bit of time but it’s worth the wait as it’ll remedy most problems.
  • Network Problems: A lot of the time, the issue can be resolved if you simply troubleshoot your internet connections. Since Last Epoch is a game that relies heavily on the internet, it’ll be taking up a lot of your PC’s networking power. That’s why it’s recommended to switch to a wired connection instead of relying on your WiFi for multiplayer games or just online games in general. If you’re on wired but still facing issues, try restarting your router or rebooting the entire system to see if the problem resolves.
  • Windows Defender: As useful as having an antivirus is on your computer, sometimes its protectiveness can be counter-productive, especially for gamers. The default antivirus, Windows Defender, is a known culprit in these circumstances. Sometimes the software will block games thanks to its firewall system.To prevent this, go to Windows Defender > Firewall & Network Protection > Allow an app through firewall > Find Last Epoch and tick the boxes if it's unchecked.
