Now Playing: Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout Video Review

Fall Guys was originally released in August 2020 on PC and PS4 through PlayStation Plus. There were rumors that Fall Guys would be added to Game Pass, but this was debunked by Satan.

The Switch and Xbox versions of Fall Guys were originally expected to launch in Summer 2021 before being delayed to 2022. This was too soon for the studio to deliver all the "tasty new features," so the game was delayed for those platforms.

"While we want to launch on these platforms as quickly as possible, we believe the Switch and Xbox releases are really going to be worth waiting for and we're super grateful for your patience," Mediatonic said. "This delay gives our team some time to add features like cross-play, so when we add new platforms, players will be able to stumble in harmony with their pals, regardless of their platform of choice."

As of this week, cross-play is now enabled in Fall Guys for lobbies, allowing players across PlayStation and PC to connect and play together. Players need to link their Epic Accounts to Fall Guys and then use the Invite Players functionality in the game to play with people on other systems.

Mediatonic was acquired by Fortnite studio Epic Games in 2021 as part of the company's effort to create a metaverse.
