Fall Guys is essentially Mario Party mixed with the television show “Wipeout.” You start a game with 60 players (sometimes less) and continue to play rounds while people get eliminated from challenges. There are several game modes, including team games, and it all comes together in one final showdown where a champion is crowned.

Will Fall Guys be available on mobile or Xbox?

Maybe at some point in the distant future, but not now. During an appearance on the podcast “Talk Guys,” Fall Guys lead designer Joe Walsh said his team is not working on moving the game anywhere else. In short, Walsh believes it’s best to improve the game on the platforms it is already on rather than work on moving it elsewhere. Fall Guys is only available on Windows PC and PlayStation.

Is Fall Guys free?

Kind of, but not really. If you’re on PC it isn’t free at all. You can purchase the standard edition for $19.99 on Steam, or the Collector’s Edition for $29.99. On PlayStation, Fall Guys is free, but only if you pay for PlayStation Plus, which costs $9.99 per month. Otherwise, Fall Guys costs the same $19.99 on PlayStation (or $29.99 for the Collector’s Edition) if you’re buying it directly.

Is Fall Guys cross-platform?

No. Fall Guys is not cross-platform. You can only play Fall Guys on PC or PlayStation, and when you play on those respective platforms, you’re playing others on the platform. Put simply, if you’re playing on PlayStation, you play against PlayStation opponents. If you play on PC, you’re playing against PC opponents.

As for whether Fall Guys will ever be cross-platform, don’t expect anything new in the near future.

“There’s nothing new on that front, I’m afraid,” Walsh told The Loadout. “We’re still committed to it. I think we’re committed to it even more than we were before. We’re seeing that Fall Guys is bringing people in who don’t usually play multiplayer games together. So if we can get people together with friends as soon as possible, that’s good. It’s important to us as a studio”

Why can’t you change your name in Fall Guys?

When Fall Guys released, users quickly discovered that you could insert HTML code as your name, and that quickly became an issue. Users could make the size of their name to be 100,000-point font and take up the entire screen if they wanted to. To combat this, Fall Guys simply made it so everyone’s name just said “Fall Guy” followed by some numbers. It’s not clear if this will change at any point in the future, but as for now users are stuck with generic names.

Will Fall Guys ever get private lobbies?

This is something the Fall Guys developers on working on. In that same interview with The Loadout, Walsh said his team has heard the desire for that.

“It’s still early days, but it’s something we hear a desire for,” Walsh said. “Fall Guys is ultimately a TV show and people want to be the director, they want to run their own show. We totally hear the demand for that, but it’ll take us a little while to figure out what that looks like exactly. But it’s on our list of things to do.”
