Fall Guys Season 1: Free For All is now available for all systems, and Xbox and Nintendo Switch players can check out the game for the first time. The season is a mini-reset for veteran players as the Ultimate Knockout game is now free to play, available on multiple consoles, and features crossplay and cross-progression for the first time. If you’re worried about missing something that came with Season 1, we’ve covered everything you need to know about Free For All in a previous guide. In this guide, we’ll walk you through the extra step of ensuring that all of your inventory items and game history travel with you to the new platforms in the game.
Cross-progression essentially means that no matter where you play Fall Guys, your progress will be saved to one account. In contrast, crossplay is a feature that allows players to join up with other players on any system that Fall Guys is available on. The community often confuses the two terms. Cross-play needs less explanation than cross-progression, which is sometimes called cross-save. Regardless of what you prefer to call it, we’ve put together a guide that explains how to make sure you have an account that can transfer your progress through any system.
Connecting your Fall Guys account
This is one more step intended for new Fall Guys players. When Epic Games bought Fall Guys developer Mediatonic, they made it mandatory for all Fall Guys players to have an Epic Games account. Without an Epic Games account, you will not be able to log in or play Fall Guys. If you played the game before the release of Season 1, then you will already have an account with Epic Games, so those players can skip this step.
For newer players, you will be prompted to create an Epic Games account when downloading Fall Guys for the first time. You can do this through the prompts that will appear on your system or by going directly to the Epic Games Store website. If you’re signing in through the website directly, look at the top right of the screen and you’ll see a box that says “sign in.” Click on that box and scroll down until you see the option to create a new account. Either way you do it, you’ll need to register an active email address and create a password. You can also create an account using other methods, such as using Steam, Facebook, etc. Choose the method that is easiest for you.
Once an Epic Games account has been created, you can use it to log in to Fall Guys on any system of your choice.
While you can play Fall Guys on a primary system, like your PS5, you can also play on another system. If you do, you’ll need to make sure that any progress you’ve made on one system carries over to the other. This is done simply by linking your account to the systems you play Fall Guys on.
To do this, log in to Fall Guys on any system and access the main lobby screen. Here you will see your character standing in the middle of the lobby. Hover over your name on your character and click the “Accounts” button. In the Accounts section, click “Connections” and “Accounts” again. Here you will be able to link your account to any other system you are not currently playing on. For example, if you’re on PC but also want to play Fall Guys on PS5, you’ll need to sign in to Epic Games and then sign in to your PS account. The same goes for linking an Xbox or Switch account.
It should be noted that whichever account you link first will be considered your primary account. Your main account must be on the system where you play Fall Guys the most. So if you’re primarily a PC gamer but have an Xbox in your living room, then you’ll probably want your PC account to be your primary account. However, regardless of which account is the primary account, your progress made on any account will carry over to any other system you log into. Even if you play something on PC, something on Xbox, and then more on Switch, your level, season pass progress, cosmetics earned, etc. will carry over on any system.
