It was informed that Fall Guys will be free-to-play today, June 21, and will also be available on the Epic Games Store.

At the very base of the press liberation, a minor detail was attributed that the game would also disappear from Steam

Although those who already own a copy of the game on Steam will continue to acquire the exact updates as Epic Store players. It happened, and now you can download Fall Guys for free on EGS.

The game will also debut on multiple consoles, which I mention because the game now has cross-play and cross-progression on all platforms. So if you like the game and it’s a lot of fun in small doses, chances are there will be a considerable amount of people here trying it out in the next few weeks.

The relaunch of the F2P game comes with a relaunch of seasons, a new in-game currency (Show-Bucks), and a new progression system. The recent “Season 1” is called Free For All and includes a giant arena with the latest events and locations.

Existing players have received the “Legacy Pack,” which includes the Season 1 Pass and a bunch of cosmetics. Despite this, many players are unhappy that a previously premium game is becoming free-to-play. Of course, they’re entitled to it, but considering the game was on sale for $20 (released August 20, 2020), the downside is that the influx of new players will keep Fall Guys alive for much longer.

After acquiring the developer Mediatonic by Epic Games, this price change always seemed inevitable, making Rocket League freemium after receiving developer Psyonix in 2019. Fall Guys was never designed as a live service game, but since its success, it’s become something of a Fortnite-lite with tons of cosmetic options and brand crossovers. As a player, I am slightly annoyed by such little things, but this is the way of things, and he will keep Fall Guys in magic beans for years to come.
