Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout flings hordes of contestants together online in a mad dash through round after round of escalating chaos until one victor remains!

Battle bizarre obstacles, shove through unruly competitors, and overcome the unbending laws of physics as you stumble towards greatness. Leave your dignity at the door and prepare for hilarious failure in your quest to claim the crown!

Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout’s broad appeal comes from not taking itself too seriously. In the game, dozens of contestants play together online in a mad dash through round after round of escalating chaos until one victor remains. Contestants compete as colorful little jelly beans as they battle bizarre obstacles, shove through unruly competitors, and overcome the unbending laws of physics as they stumble towards greatness.

Developer Mediatonic revealed that Fall Guys will be transitioning into a free-to-play model starting June 21, 2022, at which time the game will also become available on Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One with full cross-play and cross-progression. However Fall Guys will be switching from Steam to the Epic Games Store.

Whether you’re on PlayStation, Nintendo Switch, Xbox, the Epic Games Store or a mix of all of the above, you’ll be able to play Fall Guys for free —with cross-play, cross-platform parties and cross-progression fully supported with the use of your Epic Games Account.

PlayStation and Steam players who already have a copy of Fall Guys will continue to receive all the usual updates (such as new seasons, patches and fresh features) that you’d expect. However, new players will no longer be able to download Fall Guys on Steam—if you’re new to Fall Guys and would like to play on PC, you can visit the Epic Games Store™ and download the launcher there. Wherever you choose to play Fall Guys (including Steam), you’ll be able to launch and stumble towards victory across platforms.

To coincide with all the new platform launches, a new Fall Guys season will also begin on June 21st, which will include new content, challenges, rewards, updates to its progression systems, as well as the introduction of in-game currency called Show-Bucks.

Beginning with the new, improved, spectacular Season 1, the Season Pass is a supercharged version of our free progression path that can be purchased with Show-Bucks, our new in-game currency. The Season Pass grants you the ability to earn new costumes and other unlockables. And remember - all Legacy Pack recipients will receive the first Season Pass free of charge!

There will be 100 levels to unlock in the Season Pass at launch, alongside the ability to unlock the next Season Pass if you max out the current one! For anyone who doesn’t pick up a Season Pass, there will continue to be a free progression path available to everyone, and Kudos will carry over from the previous version for all players.

As a thank you to all of our amazing Fall Guys players, anyone who’s downloaded and played Fall Guys before June 21 will be eligible for some iconic rewards. We don’t want to spoil it for anyone, but a little Pegwin told me that it includes a certain Veggie Dog and Fiesty Dwarf costume…

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members are in for a tasty treat with three exclusive costume rewards via Perks—Robo Rabbit, Coconut Milk, and Purple Hipster—and we’ll be making one available each month for the first three months. That’s right:

June, you get an exclusive costume!

July, you get an exclusive costume!

August, you get the picture, let’s move on…

From an adorable android Robo Rabbit to the colorfully cool Purple Hipster costume, every one of our new Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Rewards costumes is bound to make an impression on the obstacle course. Ultimate members can go claim these exclusive skins starting on June 21 via the Perks gallery on their Xbox console.

Pre-register your interest in Fall Guys Season 1: Free for All now, hit the pre-registration milestones and unlock some amazing rewards! Anything from the Keen Bean nameplate to the incredible Melonhead costume. All unlocked milestone rewards will be awarded to everyone that pre-registers.
