Fall Guys multiplayer party game goes FREE

After being delayed from its original summer 2021 release, Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout is finally ready to launch on new platforms alongside the already available version for PlayStation 4 and PS5. Not only is it set for launch on Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Epic’s PC platform, but the game will also hit Nintendo’s Switch console to coincide with its transition to a free-to-play model.

That news gets even sweeter when you realize that it also comes along with both cross-progression and cross-play, so you can battle it out with friends no matter which platform they fancy. 

All of the new features, additional platform support, and free-to-play model will hit alongside the multiplayer party game’s new season of fresh content, including additional challenges, in-game events, and maps and locations, to name a few. Mediatonic is introducing a new in-game currency known as Show-Bucks, which can be used to purchase a season pass, but there will also be a completely free progression track, according to reports

Folks who already paid for Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout are on the list to receive the Legacy Pack content seen above, which includes the aforementioned new season’s worth of content in the form of a season pass alongside some cosmetics. 

The Fall Guys multiplayer party game will hit Nintendo Switch, Xbox consoles, and the Epic Games Store on June 21, 2022, when the new season launches.
