Mediatonic has announced in the live stream and detailed in a blog post that “Fall Guys” will be free to play on June 21 and calls the new season “Free For All”. The accompanying update includes a number of additions to the game itself to ensure it’s fresh for everyone – regardless of whether you’ve played before. At the same time, there will also be an enhanced PS5 version.
The season features a fresh batch of levels and costumes like the Golden Gladiator and a multi-segment dragon. It’s unclear if new players will have a chance at some of the rarest Fall Guys skins, or if they will be limited to early adopters. Anyone who purchases and plays Fall Guys before June 21 will receive a free Legacy Pack containing a few costumes (Regal, Veggie Dog, and Feisty Dwarf), a nickname, a name tag, and the Season 1 Battle Pass . The developer didn’t say exactly if players who got Fall Guys via PS Plus will get the bonus.
This update also introduces paid Fall Guys Battle Passes, which you can claim using a new currency called Show-Bucks. Crowns can no longer be used in the shop, but players can earn and spend kudos with the option to turn unused crowns into kudos once the season goes live. Mediatonic plans to release more information about the Season Pass rewards in the near future.
