FALL GUYS Basic play free of charge. 20 million people play in 2 days, while others are dissatisfied

Developer MediaTonic announced on June 26 that the number of players in two days after the basic play of Fall Guys has reached 20 million. This work was free to play on June 21, and on the same day, the PC version shifted to the Epic Games store. Each console version has also been distributed.

Fall Guys is an online battle royal action game where up to 60 players compete until they become the last 1. It was released ahead of PC (Steam)/PS4 in 2020 and gained great popularity. After that, content was added and updated in the season format. And from June 21 this month, the PC version distribution platform will be transferred to the Epic Games store and basic play will be free. On the same day, it was also available for PS5/Xbox One/Xbox Series X | S/Nintendo Switch.

What MediaTonic announced this time is the total number of players in two days, suggesting that the extraordinary number of people played this work due to basic play free and console deployment. In the Steam version, which was suspended, the owner of this work can be played on the same platform before. From June 21, the number of players at Steam has increased despite the suspension of distribution. At the same time as the basic play is free, it may be because elements such as new Season 1 and new battle paths have been introduced.


While the popularity of Fall Guys is recurring, the battle pass seems to be dissatisfied. The achievement of the same element has progressed according to the daily and weekly challenges clear and the results of the game. It is a mechanism where various rewards are obtained. It has been pointed out that the progress is that the sooner the season pass will proceed earlier than aiming for the surviving win (Game Rant). The overseas bulletin board Reddit reported by users who compared the defeat in one round and the five-round victory. According to that, in one round defeat, the progress point was 24, while the progress point was 107 even if all five rounds were won. If you look only at the progress of the battle pass, it is certainly an impression that is inconsistent.

In addition, there are some dissatisfaction that the progress points do not enter much except for the daily and weekly challenge clear on SNS. There seems to be a concern that a series of mechanisms will lead to an increase in players who abandon the game due to the progress of the battle pass. Nevertheless, this new season has just begun. There is a good chance that it will change in the future.

Fall Guys is distributed for free for PC (Epic Games Store) and PS4/PS5/Xbox One/Xbox Series X | S/Nintendo Switch.
