It has taken a while, but Fall Guys is coming to Xbox next month. On June 21st Xbox (and Nintendo Switch) players can enjoy the goofy arcade title Fall Guys on their consoles. Simultaneously the game will be free-to-play on all platforms.

While Fall Guys was supposed to release on Xbox a year ago, it is finally coming to Microsoft’s gaming console. And being free-to-play and appearing on Xbox isn’t the only news. The game will also include cross-platform play between all platforms, with cross progression.

Season 7 will launch together with the Xbox release. In the announcement stream today the developers hinted at new stuff coming to the game, including a map builder. But, with the game turning into a free-to-play title we can be assured cosmetics will play a big part.

Fun game. To be honest the costumes have never been very difficult to grind for. I didn’t even need progress to carry over personally. I would’ve been fine with starting from scratch.

2 years too late. 0 interest in it now.

Agree. The 2 year gap is ridiculous. If the game is completely ignored, they only have themselves to blame.

At the very least, they don’t seem completely oblivious to the market and their place in it. They know no one would buy the game today so they went F2P.

In a live service environment games like this can still thrive even in a situation like this imo

It’s coming to Switch. It’s on the same level as Splatoon and Animal Crossings: New Horizon, perfect for the handhold generation who loves playing online with friends. It’s going to be popular there.

That’s the thing - Switch has Splatoon and Animal Crossings, why would people go after a game that was released 2 years ago on other platforms?

Because it’s F2P and fun.

Good to know it’ll be free to play otherwise it probably would have been dead on arrival.

This game is mirroring a lot of Rocket League. Can’t wait to finally try it.

Not as popular as you think. Peopel would rather play those other games. Especially on switch.

But fair play to them for going F2P. They aren’t completely insane.

It’s there split screen couch co-op for this game. My granddaughter loved it on PlayStation, so I’d like to play it with her.

Has anyone else had trouble with this level? Out of all the levels i’ve played I think this is the only one i’ve never finished. In one match I played, 29 people started and only 3 made it to the top.

Game can be very addicting. Me and my buddy just did three hours of the spartan mode. We got the outfit and also the purple helmet. This is all we can unlock for the Halo related stuff?

Chief outfit, Grunt and the other one can only be bought?

From what i’ve seen yeah, you can only get them by paying. Honestly I think I would have preferred paying $20 for the game and earning the skins just by playing, over it going F2P and having to pay $8 or more for them. The game itself is really fun to play but the customization items you don’t buy with kudos are kinda expensive.

Yeah, I can pay for games but not really interested in paying for cosmetics. Was about to break that rule and buy the MC skin but it costs 1200 showbucks, and you can only purchase 1000 or 2800 which is too expensive since I have no interest in anything else. So they get $0.

At least give me the option to pay for what I want, i hate when they try to rip you off.

Yeah, and I got happy when I saw I was getting close to unlocking that red outfit and then it turns out I need to upgrade my season pass first. Come on now.

Seems like overall free unlockable items are scarce.

Yes, the Battle Pass is decent if you are going to play the game for a long time though. It costs 1000 showbucks, but if you complete it you will earn 1500 along the way, which will pay for the next one and then some extra. That is the only good deal in the entire game haha.

Hmm, that’s not too bad indeed. And the battle pass gets you all those outfits that you do unlock? Outfits that you see other people wearing like the shark, the soda can and such?
