I've started having an issue where I "cannot create online session"... the game still loads fine, but I am in a new "body" with no items. I can even find my old body just standing out in the open where I left it?

It also happens if I try and start a new game.

I've verified the install, and tried deleting all the stuff in users.... no luck same issue. (I'm not running any mods)

I thought maybe it would be a server issue on your end but it has been nearly 24 hours and still nothing?

Any idea what is going on?

I am using the release ea build (not the experimental)


I seem to not be logging in.. a guy on reddit told me there is a small hard to read text ion the bottom, it reads "not logged in". 

I am connected to the internet (that is how I can post this!) and I have the Epic Launcher loaded and logged in. I have tried closing it and loading it and then running the game as soon as the spic launcher is loaded.

Found a fix....

I went into my firewall software (in my case bitDefender) and made a exception to allow traffic for all the EXEs in the game dir. 



I am pretty sure these are the two you need to make an exception for.... but I also did these ones as well.. I am not certain they have to be done.

Another solution is to completely uninstall software firewall(s) entirely. If you're on the internet behind a router you're already protected. Routers have firewalls built in by design. That's how they're able to share the connection between multiple computers.

You need to be online when starting the game.

Yes.. obviously I am connected to the internet and have the epic launcher open and logged in before I launch the game.
