Fall Guys is becoming free-to-play and is launching on all platforms with cross-play

Coinciding with the game's landing on Nintendo Switch, Xbox, and the Epic Games Store, Fall Guys is becoming a free-to-play game with full cross-play support. Additionally, an upgraded PlayStation 5 version of Fall Guys is coming for users of Sony's latest consoles, promising gamers performance upgrades, faster loading times, and other upgrades.

On June 21st, Fall Guys is becoming a free-to-play game on all platforms, little less than two years after the game's initial launch on PC and PlayStation 4. With the game's free-to-play launch, more gamers than ever will be able to play though Fall Guy's vast array of content.

Existing owners of the paid-for version of Fall Guys will be given the game's "Legacy Pack" for free. This applies to both PC (Steam), and PlayStation 4 owners of the game. Once Fall Guys becomes free-to-play, the game will also become unavailable on Steam (to new players).

On PC, the new home for Fall Guys will be the Epic Games Store. While existing owners of Fall Guys will be able to continue playing the game on Steam, new free-to-play players of the game will be forced to do so using the Epic Games Store/launcher.

Epic Games now owns Tonic, the studio behind Fall Guys, and that fact alone should explain why Fall Guys is ditching Steam. Epic Games wants Fall Guys on their launcher, not Valve's. Beyond that, moving Fall Guys to the Epic Games Store will allow Epic Games to take a larger cut of Fall Guys' revenues, some of which would have previously went to Valve. 

If you are thinking that this all sounds familiar, it should. Epic Games did the same thing with Rocket League back in 2020. Epic Games acquired Rocket League's developer and later made the game free-to-play on the Epic Games Store, removing the game from Steam to new customers in the process.
