Finally, the popular battle royale Fall Guys is going free to play and it’s coming to Xbox as well as the Nintendo Switch.
Furthermore, Fall Guys will also support cross-play across all available formats and cross-progression. If there’s a game that can truly benefit from this format, it’s Fall Guys.
Its arrival to Xbox and Nintendo Switch has been a long time coming, with Fall Guys only previously being available for PC and PS4. However, we will have to wait a little longer for its arrival on new platforms.
When will Fall Guys be Free-to-Play?
Fall Guys will be free-to-play on Tuesday, June 21st. When that day arrives, PC, PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch gamers will be able to enjoy its battle royale mayhem together.
Will there be a new season?
Yes, but it’s kind of a reboot of sorts as Fall Guys stumbles its way into the free-to-play era. On June 21st, Season One: Free for All will also launch. The new season will introduce new stages, content, and updates. Of course, fan favourite stages will also remain.
Will there be a reward for returning players?
Yes, players who had bought the paid version of Fall Guys, as well as playing the PS Plus version, will be treated to the Legacy Pack. This DLC bundle will include a bunch of cosmetic items and even Fall Guys first season pass for free!
For those that haven’t played Fall Guys before (if you haven’t, you might want to before June 21st), you can buy the season pass via the in-game store.
How will cross-progression work?
As before, you will level up in Fall Guys simply by playing the game. However, if you want to play Fall Guys on multi-platforms and earn seamless progression, you will need to create an Epic Games account.
Fall Guys will launch for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and Nintendo Switch on June 21st. Are you looking forward to the new era of Fall Guys? Let us know on Twitter.
