How to Play Last Epoch in Offline Mode: How to Fix Can’t Play Offline Error

Online mode is a great way to play Last Epoch because you can compete in the game’s leaderboards. You can interact with other players in town and trade. While that’s all fine and dandy, it’s sometimes just preferable to play offline for solo gamers. You’ll still have in-game chat, but you’ll roam the timeline alone. You can easily select the Offline Mode in-game, but an error can still get in the way of launching with your offline characters.

To fix the Last Epoch Can’t Play Offline error, adjust the game’s offline settings in Steam by following these steps:

  • Exit Last Epoch if it’s running.
  • Open Steam.
  • Head to your Steam library.
  • Right-click on Last Epoch in your library.
  • Select Properties.
  • Select the Launch Options dropdown in the General tab.
  • Select Play Full Offline.
    • Alternatively, you can select “Ask when starting game.”
  • If you load in and can’t see your character in the selection screen, be sure to restart LE and Steam. However, online characters can’t play on offline servers, and vice-versa.

If you set your game to offline mode within Steam, make sure to switch it back if you want to play Online Mode again. Notably, all Offline Characters will be permanently placed on Offline servers, so make sure you’re content with that before investing your time into a character.
