Epic Games’ Rumbleverse Launches to Long Queues and Frustrated Players

Epic Games’ new Rumbleverse game launched late last week and you would think a company that runs a large video game marketplace and multiple online game servers would be used to network congestion. Sadly that wasn’t the case. Rumbleverse managed to amass quite a large following on launch day and its popularity picked up over the weekend resulting in some extremely long wait times to log into the game.

The free-to-play battle royale game is a spin on the genre as players explore a city while beating up other players to be the last one standing. Players are struggling to get into Rumbleverse due to long queues. Players are complaining that the game is literally unplayable because queues amass over 100,000 players and can take hours to get through.

One photo on Twitter showed a user trying to log into the game. Sadly, he was placed right at the back of the queue at position 104,722. Once logged in, users also report finding matches in Rumbleverse is also a struggle. Players claim that matchmaking takes over five minutes to find a game. Given that the queues are so long, you would think filling matches up would be fast and easy. That isn’t the case.

Developer Iron Galaxy didn’t expect the game to be such a huge success at launch. They have since issued updates to its client and server tweaks to help improve the long wait times. Players are still complaining about long queues but it seems things are getting better over time.

While Rumbleverse might look like just another free-to-play battle royale game, I would suggest giving it a go for yourself. From what I have seen from the game, it looks rather exciting and it is definitely a unique spin don’t the genre. Here’s a gameplay trailer to watch below. The game is available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC.
