Fall Guys (previously Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout) is a Mediatonic platform battle royale game. Devolver Digital published it on August 4, 2020, for Microsoft Windows and PlayStation 4. Following their purchase of Mediatonic, the publishing rights were passed to Epic Games, which plans to release the game on 21 June 2022 for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S. Fall Guys will transition to a free-to-play model with full cross-platform compatibility on the same day.
Matches featuring battle royale-style gameplay include up to 60 players. Players, shown as jellybean-like figures, move about a three-dimensional playing surface, with extra movements like leaping, grabbing/climbing, or diving to help with gameplay. The goal is to advance to the next round by successfully completing each of the previous rounds. Some mini-games include sprinting towards a finish line at the end of the map, while others require playing tag with other players. Obstacles arise throughout the map in each mini-game to enhance the difficulty. Players that are too sluggish, slip into pink slime or fail specific mini-game conditions are removed. The last few players participate in a final match using a randomized mini-game tailored for a smaller player size in the final round. The match is won by the last player standing. Players may buy cosmetics and emotes for their avatar to show off in-game using in-game money called “Kudos.”
Players earn Kudos for finishing matches and “Crowns” by winning matches. Crowns were a premium currency until 21 June 2022, when they would no longer contribute towards Crown Rank and would be converted into Kudos. Show Bucks, a premium in-game currency that may be used to buy premium cosmetics, and the Paid Season Pass for future season passes will be introduced in Spectacular Season 1. Show Bucks can only be obtained with the Season Pass or through microtransactions similar to Fortnite’s V-Bucks.
Fall Guys will be available on Xbox, Nintendo Switch, and the Epic Games Store in the near future. Best of all, you won’t have to restart the game or worry about losing out on your friends on any of these new platforms; the game will support cross-play and cross-progression, enabling you to simply move between platforms or play with friends on other systems.

Fall Guys will no longer need payment to play; in addition to these additional platforms, the game will be free to play. While there will very certainly be some amount of advancement that allows you to acquire cosmetics, you will almost certainly have to pay real-world money to get the greatest items. Of course, there’s the elephant in the room: what happens to those who have already purchased the game? Mediatonic has chosen to repay the original gamers with a “Legacy Pack” including many cosmetic items.
