The official Fall Guys Youtube channel has just announced that next month, it will be available on the Nintendo Switch and Xbox systems, and it will be free to play on all platforms!
The announcement also confirmed that the game will be cross-platform for teams, so you and your buddies can play from anywhere and on anything!
Players who have bought the game will also receive a Legacy Pack which will give players exclusive rewards! Fall Guys’ main appeal is the huge player count in each match, so this move makes sense as it will bring in a massive new wave of players.
Regarding performance, the Switch version will be capped at 30fps undocked, but will capable of 60fps gameplay when docked. Meanwhile, the game on Xbox and Playstation systems will perform consistently at 60fps according to developers.
The developers have also assured us that all progress will be saved between the different platforms and the transition to free-to-play. Playstation 4 players have also been advised to download the new version of game available now!
What about existing players?
Players who launch Fall Guys before June 21 will receive a Legacy Pack! This pack contains the Regal, Veggie Dog and Feisty Dwarf costumes and free access to the Season 1 Premium Season Pass!
The Premium Season Pass is estimated to be around 100 tiers long and will be “jam-packed” with rewards! The Fall Guys team has also assured us that there will be a free season pass with plenty of great rewards, so free-to-players won’t be left out.
The game will also make major changes to its economy. Crowns will no longer be spendable in store and instead they will be used exclusively for Crown Ranks. With this change, Crown Ranks will have even more ranks and rewards than before!
Meanwhile, Kudos will stay and all players can exchange unspent crowns into kudos. Soon, Kudos will be the main currency for buying store items.
As for the new content, we have been told that live events will still be held and all new content will be free!
Fall Guys is going to receive a huge content update in the form of new maps and game modes! The team have given us a sneak peek at the new obstacles such as the Speed Arches and the new Blast Balls sport. Get ready for high velocity and explosive fun!
We will also be receiving several new outfits! We’re getting the Golden Gladiator, Dragon Body, Head & Tail, Ezio (from Assassins Creed), Pusheen and Godzilla!
Not only that, but the developers have also confirmed that the game will be getting levels based around other franchises! So maybe we might see something from Indiana Jones as the lost temples would be a perfect fit.
Coming soon….Map Creator!
This feature is still under development, but Fall Guys will be getting a Map Creator function in the future! No details have been given yet, but it seems you will have access to all obstacles and blocks in the upcoming mode.
Following in the footsteps of popular games like Fortnite, Fall Guys supports community-created content and wants to give you the tools!
