Play news Fall Guys Free: Release Date, Nintendo Switch, Economic Model – We Do Status
The Mediatonic studio recently talked about “big news” – in other words, we were not disappointed! Their Battle Royale Fall Guys will be free in addition to coming on other consoles (including the Nintendo Switch). A first-class revival for this chubby, colorful online game? If the topic interests you, here is everything you need to know about the free version of the game.
Find above, in auto-play, a trailer of the events of the new Fall Guys Season.
What is the release date of the Fall Guys free version?
We start with the most important information: the free version of Fall Guys will be released on it June 21 on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, Nintendo Switch. Battle Royale from the Mediatonic studio therefore takes the opportunity to move to the next generation on PlayStation, but above all to arrive at Microsoft and Nintendo consoles for the first time. For the PC version, please note that it will no longer be possible to get Fall Guys on Steam from this date (no problem to report if you already have a copy on this platform). It will now be on its way to the Epic Games Store to enjoy it on a computer. Note that the game will also be across platforms | cross-progression. In other words, you will now be able to play with users on any platform and transfer your progress from machine to machine. Very handy with a Nintendo Switch.
What will the Xbox, PS5, Switch versions bring?
With the advent of the new generation of consoles, Fall Guys will obviously be subject to some improvements. Although we do not have all the details at the moment, it is official site of the game is about one “Spectacular version” on PlayStation 5s with “reduced loading times and other performance improvements” (arguably better for resolution and frame rate). Although the Sony console is very clearly mentioned, the Xbox series will definitely be subject to the same treatment in the coming months. As for the Nintendo Switch, we’ll have to wait for the June 21 release to see what it’s all about. But since Fall Guys is not the most greedy title in the world – despite its chubby characters – the title should hold up well.
What changes for those who have purchased the game?
But that’s a good question! On the Fall Guys page, we read that “PlayStation and Steam players – who already own a copy of the game – will continue to receive all the usual updates (new seasons, new patches, new features)”. The icing on the cake: these the same players will benefit from a Legacy Pack, with “a nickname, a name tag, Regalian / Vegan hotdog / Bellicose Dwarf costumes as well as a season ticket for season 1”. For newcomers, of course, it will be necessary to start at the bottom of the ladder, as part of a new season called “Free for All”. But if you want to take advantage of the Legacy Pack, you can purchase Fall Guys now and launch it before June 21st. Hurry, it’s coming soon!
We’ve just talked about it, the arrival of Fall Guys in free-to-play is primarily synonymous with Season Pass, described as “a boosted version of the free progression system already present in the game”, and which “allows you to earn extra costumes and other bonuses, in addition to normal progression.” If Season Pass Season 1 is offered with the Legacy Pack to players who already own Fall Guys, others will have to purchase it via the title of the new premium currency, Emissous. These can be purchased at an in-game store. Also on the official website, Mediatonic specifies that there will be “100 levels” to unlock at the launch of the season pass with the option to “unlock” the next season pass if the current one is completed!
For the other changes, we learn that the kroner will now only be used as a level of prestige and no longer as a barter currency to buy goods. As for Kudos, they will keep their money function, however as part of a “selection” of objects (which we imagine less than that of the season card). At present, it is not known to what extent it will be possible to acquire the game’s crazy costumes with this currency. As for the final details, please note that crowns deposited before June 21st will become Kudos at 2000 Kudos per crown. And that it will no longer be possible to buy Kudos with real money. For more information we will have to wait for the release of Fall Guys Free.
