How to Fix For the King 2 Multiplayer Not Working
IronOak Games, the developers behind For the King 2, have recently released multiple hotfixes fixing several issues including multiplayer. They have addressed several issues in the update including the different multiplayer issues in the game. We would suggest you update the game with the hotfix and to the latest version to resolve the issues.

According to this Steam Community Thread, one of the developers has stated that the multiplayer connectivity issues have been resolved and will fully resume. Having said that, as mentioned before there can be various reasons why the issue may occur while playing For the King 2. However, if the multiplayer not working issue persists even after updating the game to its latest version then here are some workarounds you can try out to fix it:
Check Server Status
Ongoing server outages or maintenance can cause the multiplayer not to work while playing For the King 2. And the simple thing to do here would be to check the server status of the game. Players can either follow the official For the King 2 Twitter page or join their Discord Server. The devs will update any server issues or maintenance on the page as well as their discord server.
Change Server Region
If you are unable to come across any servers in For the King 2 then a simple fix would be to change the server region in the multiplayer option. Once inside the multiplayer option, simply click on the Region option and change it accordingly. By default, it will be set to Null in the game which is why you may not come across any servers.
Create Public Lobby
One of the workarounds that has worked for many players is to create a public lobby with a password. After that, you and your friends will have to wait for a while before your friends can start joining the lobby. It will be important for them to join the lobby from the server search option with the correct credentials. Once done the multiplayer not working issue would be resolved in For the King 2.
