Despite being a surprise smash hit on mobile platforms, Last Day On Earth: Survival is still very much an Early Access game — falling prey to all the bugs, problems, and glitches which come with that label. One of the more common issues players are encountering in Last Day On Earth is getting stuck on a loading screen or loading bar.
Luckily, however, there are a few simple methods for fixing things when your Last Day on Earth game won’t load. And in this short guide, we’ll tell you all the fixes you can try so you can quit loading and get back to surviving.

Look, I hate to be that guy, but whenever you have software problems, it’s always a good idea to check for updates and Last Day On Earth: Survival is no different. The game is getting updates fairly often, so make sure your current version of LDOE:S is the latest one before trying anything else. This can save you a lot of annoyance.
Fix 2: Check the Last Day On Earth: Survival Facebook Page
As an Early Access game, Last Day On Earth: Survival will be going through server maintenance pretty frequently. This means there are going to be plenty of times where you simply can’t load the game no matter what you try.
Save yourself the headache now and check the developer’s official Facebook page for Last Day On Earth to see if the game’s servers are currently undergoing maintenance.
Fix 3: Reconnect Your Internet
Now that you’ve tried the first two methods — and seriously, you need to try them — you can try fiddling with your internet connection.
With Last Day On Earth still running, go to the settings of your phone and turn off your WiFi or your mobile data (whichever you are using), wait a few moments, and then turn it back on. Return to LDOE:S, wait a few seconds for your connection to the server to be re-established, and the loading bar should start moving again. If not, check out the next solution to the game’s loading problems.
