The launch of Back 4 Blood is not going as smoothly as everyone hoped. Many players are experiencing different errors across all platforms as they try to launch and play the game. One common error that can be seen across all platforms is the Failed to Sign In error. In this guide, we are going to cover how to fix the error as well as what could be causing it.
How to fix failed to sign in error
The failed to sign in error is not a PC exclusive error. Xbox players have also reported the error when they try to boot up Back 4 Blood. One important note about the error is that it may be caused by the servers being down on the developer end. If you are getting this error, make sure to check that the servers for Back 4 Blood are not currently experiencing issues.
If you are playing on Steam and experiencing the error the fix should be simple. In order to fix the error, you need to go into your steam settings and clear your download cache. After that, give Steam a quick restart and you should be good to keep playing.
Fixing the error on Xbox is a little bit harder. You will need to change the MAC address in your Xbox connection settings. After you change your MAC address, give your router a restart and the error should be fixed.
If the error still persists after trying these fixes, you may need to wait and see if the Back 4 Blood servers are experiencing issues on their end. Since the game was just released, it is common for the servers to get overloaded and crash. This would lead to the failed to sign in error and it would be no fault of your own.
Once the failed to sign in error is fixed, you should be ready to dive into the game. If you run into any trouble in the game make sure to check out our other Back 4 Blood Guides, such as our guide on how to unlock cleaners and weapon skins.
