Everything we know about Fall Guys cross-platform support
While developer Mediatonic knew they had a winner when they made Fall Guys available for free on PlayStation Plus, the game’s reception has been even more enthusiastic than they anticipated, particularly now that it’s available for free on every system. Fall Guys is a genuine viral sensation, being one of the most played games on console and PC and one of the best-seen games on Twitch.
In its early stages, Fall Guys only supported the PlayStation 4 and the personal computer. Mediatonic’s availability on all current platforms is a huge plus since it means the developer has finally tackled cross-play. All the information we have about Fall Guys’ split-screen multiplayer, cross-platform saves, and other similar features can be found here.
Is Fall Guys cross-platform?
Yes, Fall Guys now has full cross-platform support for PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo Switch, and PC via the Epic Games store. Being free to play, if you link up your Epic Games account, you can play with friends no matter what system they’re on.
Cross-save and cross-progression
Cross-progression was in the works for a long time but has finally arrived. Now that Fall Guys uses a singular Epic Games account, so long as that account is linked to the platform you’re using, all your progress, cosmetics, level, and everything else will seamlessly follow you from one system to the next. You won’t have to worry about not having your favorite look available, no matter what platform you’re playing on.
What about split-screen?
While Fall Guys would be one of the best in-person party games around, it doesn’t support split-screen multiplayer as of right now. If split-screen does become available down the road, Fall Guys could become an all-time great party game, akin to the Mario Party or Jackbox Games series.
However, thanks to the game being free and, on every console, out there with full cross-play support, it isn’t as much of a bummer considering how accessible the game is. Even if you can’t play at the same time, Fall Guys is great to play with friends because everyone needs a cheerleader!
