Good news everybody! The truly awesome Fall Guys is not only coming to more platforms, it’s also going free to play. That’s the end of the news, I’m off to put the kettle on. Thank you.
Oh, you need more information? OK. Well, The game will soon be available on Nintendo Switch, Xbox and the Epic Games Store. However, there is one downside, it will be leaving the Steam platform. I’m sure some of you will not be happy about that, but let’s be honest, if a game is free, we’re used to grabbing it on Epic Games Store these days.
Fall Guys Going Free-to-Play
The game first launched in August 2020, and at nearly two years old, it’s still going strong. I’m normally not a big fan of the free-to-play business model, but frankly, it’s hard to argue that this isn’t a game that would be well suited to it. At least, my kids can soon play it on multiple systems and at no added cost, so I’m happy with that.
“From June 21, we’re welcoming more players than ever before to the Blunderdome to compete for the Crown – and we’ve been working hard behind-the-scenes to make sure that everyone enjoys the same great Fall Guys experience no matter where you play. If you haven’t checked out our reveal event stream, feast your eye on this marvelous motion picture broadcast immediately. – Fall Guys
So there you have it, for all PlayStation, Nintendo Switch, Xbox, and PC (Epic Games Store) users, you’ll soon be able to play Fall Guys for free. That includes cross-play, cross-platform parties and cross-progression fully supported with the use of your Epic Games Account. You don’t have long to wait either, with all this hitting the world on June 21st. Anyone who purchased the game before that time will receive the Legacy Pack too (Details below)
“PlayStation and Steam players who already have a copy of Fall Guys will continue to receive all the usual updates (such as new seasons, patches and fresh features) that you’d expect. However, new players will no longer be able to download Fall Guys on Steam—if you’re new to Fall Guys and would like to play on PC, you can visit the Epic Games Store and download the launcher there. Wherever you choose to play Fall Guys (including Steam), you’ll be able to launch and stumble towards victory across platforms.”
Also, big news for PlayStation 5 users: a super spectacular new version of Fall Guys will launch at the same time as the Nintendo Switch, Xbox and Epic Games Store versions, bringing faster load times and other performance upgrades to your fabulous next-gen box of tricks.
