Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout will be free from June 21; Coming to Nintendo Switch, Xbox
Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout will be free to play starting June 21, developer Mediatonic has announced. The Battle Royale game will also debut on Nintendo Switch, Xbox, and the Epic Games Store on the same date. It was also revealed that there will also be a PlayStation 5 version which will offer faster loading times and other performance improvements. It will release alongside the Nintendo Switch, Xbox, and Epic Games Store versions.
The game will be free on PlayStation, Nintendo Switch, Xbox and the Epic Games Store. It will fully support cross-play, cross-platform parties, and cross-progression with Epic Games account usage, the developers said. Note that Epic Games, known for Fortnite, acquired last year Tonic Games Group, the developers of Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout. At this time, Epic Games stated that Fall Guys would retain its original gameplay. Tonic Games announced upon acquisition that the game would be available for Nintendo Switch and Xbox, as well as PC and PlayStation.
The developer notes that PlayStation and Steam players, who already have a copy of Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout, will continue to receive updates, including new seasons, fixes, and features. However, new players will no longer be able to download Fall Guys on Steam. These new players can visit Epic Games Store and download the launcher to play the game on PC.
Additionally, players who purchase (or have purchased) and play (or played) Fall Guys before the June 21 launch will receive a new Legacy Pack. The pack will have a nickname, nameplate, Regal costume, Veggie Dog costume, Feisty Dwarf costume, and a Season Pass for Season 1 – a new season that will mark the free-to-play mode. This (new) season 1 will have new levels and costumes. Fall Guys, which launched in August 2020, has had six seasons so far.
Pre-registration for Fall Guys is now live and those who pre-register will be eligible for rewards. Players who play Fall Guys after June 21 can purchase the Season Pass with Show-Bucks, a new in-game currency. You can unlock 100 Tiers in the Season Pass at launch, and also unlock the next Season Pass if you max the one out. In progress. If you’re not the one buying a season pass, you can still play the game for free.
