Mediatonic’s multiplayer sensation Fall Guys has been hooking players for months with its instantaneous party play and numerous game show-style set-ups. But today, Xbox and Nintendo Switch owners will be able to join in, as the game officially hits those platforms today.
What’s more, it’s become free-to-play, so there’s no cost for entering the match-ups.
But is it the right game for you? We’re going to say yes, and here are a few reasons why you shouldn’t hesitate to download it and join in on the fun.
Costumes, Costumes, Costumes
The first thing you need to know about Fall Guys is that you can unlock costumes. A lot of them.
There’s a special Master Chief Halo costume for Xbox owners; along with a slew of other favorites from games and nostalgia. Not to mention the fact you may just want to stick with a simpler one.
Considering it’s now a free-to-play game, Fall Guys also has content you can purchase, in case you don’t feel like unlocking things. There’s no obligation unless you want premium stuff, mind you, so please don’t let that hold you back from enjoying the game. Just saying it’s there if you want it!
Did Someone Say Cross-Platform?
With the game’s launch today across more platforms, Fall Guys has officially gone cross- platform. That means there’s nothing stopping you from joining in with your friends, regardless of platform, to have a field day through the various events. Granted, it really depends on connection time and how things go with today’s launch. But eventually, you PS5 owners can have fun alongside the Nintendo Switch ones without missing much of a beat.
This also opens up accessibility of the game quite a bit, so everyone can enjoy it. And never mind performance issues – the game looks great across the board, even on Switch!
It’s Incredibly Easy To Get Into, But Hard To Master
The thing that makes Fall Guys so great is how accessible it is. Even if you’re a newcomer, it’s great to hop into match-ups and learn about the different games you’re taking part in, whether direct multiplayer or chases to the finish. What’s more, you don’t need a huge set of skills to do it – though they certainly help.
This is one of those games that benefits from having the ability to appeal to all types of players.
It’s even great for kids, provided they know they’re competing against others in various events.
Just be sure to get in some practice. Even when you lose, you still win, as you know what strategies to work on the next round in!
It’s Fun To Play and To Watch
What’s great about Fall Guys is that even if you’re not directly playing, it’s hilarious watching others compete for the top prize in each round. They’ll make hilarious mistakes, bump into each other, and even come through with a surprise victory when you least expect it! That makes the excitement of each match something else, even if you don’t make it to the next round. But if that’s not your thing, relax – you can quit and automatically jump into the next available match to try again!
Fall Guys is available now for all consoles and PC.
