The hectic and heart-rate raising game is a great time, and now can be enjoyed by players no matter what system or console they have access to. We'll run through how cross-progression and crossplatform play works in the game.
If you're after more on the topic, we have all the details you need on how to start the Fall Guys name change process if you want to come back to the game as someone different this time around.
How Fall Guys Crossplay Works
Fall Guys Free For All is available on Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4 and 5, Nintendo Switch, and PC via both Steam and the Epic Games store.
Players from all platforms can play together, providing the option is enabled in settings - more on this in a moment.
Crossprogression (which isn't the same thing as crossplay) is something to take into account if you plan on playing Fall Guys Free For All on more than one platform. Say you play mainly on your PlayStation 4 but want to play at work on your Switch, you can bring that same account and its contents over, but you'll need to follow some steps so you don't lose anything.
You'll need to connect your accounts to play the same profile on different platforms. Here's how.
How to Enable Crossprogression in Fall Guys Free For All
- Go to the Epic Games Website.
- If you have one, sign into your Epic Games account. Create one if you don’t have one.
- Head to the Account page, click Connections, and then Accounts.
- Pick the account type you play with and log into it.
That's your account linked - you'll need to repeat that for any other platforms you want to play on so you don't lose any progress. Note that if you have multiple accounts, you'll need to choose one to link, as you can't attach more than one to the Epic account.
How To Turn Off Fall Guys Cross Platform Matchmaking
By default, the option for cross platform matchmaking will be turned on in settings on Fall Guys, but you can turn it off if you want to by simply switching the option to deny cross platform matchmaking in the same menu. You'll find it directly below the second set of options.
It's recommended simply as a means to play with your friends on other systems or to help speed up matchmaking, but if you find yourself at a constant disadvantage with PC players and their mice and keyboards, you're free to limit yourself to platform you play on. It's an all-or-nothing situation, though. You can run down and tick off a list of the platforms you're ok pairing up with, so don't go thinking you can exclude one platform and not another.
If you want to play with the same friends on every platform, you'll need to log into the aforementioned Epic Games account, so be sure to follow those steps to the tee above. For more on the big Fall Guys Free For All switch, check out what Season 6 brought at the tail-end of last month.
