The COVID-19 pandemic years of 2020 and 2021 were mostly rocked by multiplayer titles that took the internet by storm. With more people than ever looking to play games online and socialize when they otherwise were not able to. Now that those games have peaked, it would make sense to move to a free-to-play model instead…
That’s exactly what the hugely popular Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout is doing, by officially going free-to-play on June 21st 2022. It will also be making its first arrival to the Epic Games Store as well as the Xbox and Nintendo Switch consoles alongside a brand new Season of content.
The catch for PC players is that once Fall Guys becomes F2P, it will be exclusive to the Epic Games Store. Owners of the Steam version will still be able to play and get updates, but new players will no longer be able to get the Steam version. Owners of the game already on any platform will get a “Legacy Pack” as compensation for the free to play switch though.
What do you think? Are you excited for Fall Guys going free-to-play? Did you already own/play the game before? How do you feel about it being an EGS exclusive? Let us know!
