How Can You Download Fall Guys?
If you don’t have a PlayStation Plus subscription, you won’t be able to get Fall Guys for free. If you do have PS Plus, there are two easy ways to download Fall Guys.
- Click the giant Plus logo that appears on your homescreen on PS4, which will take you right to the main page where Fall Guys should be featured when it’s live.
- Click PS Plus tab in the PlayStation store itself.
Fall Guys is not a huge game, so you don’t have to worry about some massive Call of Duty style download. You will keep the game as long as you have a PS Plus subscription, but lose it if you don’t.
When Does Fall Guys Officially Release?
The game has released today on PC and PlayStation (August 4, 2020), however, they’re trying to amplify their success by offering a free month on PlayStation so gamers can see how cool it is and start hyping up the fun. Rocket League also did this and it translated into interest for the final release and huge interest that has spanned years.
The Official Twitter of Fall Guys tweeted this morning, “When we say Fall Guys is experiencing a lot of traffic… We had over 1.5 million new players in the first 24 hours!”
The team then hinted of the first patch saying, “We’re working on our first patch for the game, listening to ALL of your feedback and ideas, and are super grateful to everyone who’s supported so far!”
Does Fall Guys Have What It Takes To Become The Next Rocket League?
Early indications are that it’s bound to be pretty popular. Betas gain a lot of traction through streaming platforms like Twitch, like Escape From Tarkov. The developer, Mediatonic, has been working on dozens of games across the web and on mobile in addition to newer titles like Gears Pop! for Microsoft.
Fall Guys looks to secure a breakout moment and the hype surrounding the game has already surpassed many rival battle royale entries from larger studies. The goofy, physics-based game has already established a solid social media presence already, and most big name streamers are going to give it a shot after viewing the limited previews available today.
Basically, the entire PlayStation population will get the opportunity to experience Fall Guys before the rest of the world can get their hands on it. You can find Fall Guys on Steam below.
