The crazy and fun multiplayer battle royale game Fall Guys was originally launched as a paid game in 2020, and also became one of the free games for PS Plus subscribers at that time. However, two years later, Fall Guys turned into a free game offering the same types of microtransactions as before. And as part of its free launch, Fall Guys is now available on other consoles such as the Nintendo Switch and Xbox.
Considering that Fall Guys is an extremely simple game that doesn’t have to deal with story cutscenes and lots of tutorial screens, it has broad appeal for a game designed as an indie game. However, there are many people who may have heard of Fall Guys and are interested in checking it out, but don’t know how to download it.
