Developer Mediatonic’s wildly anticipated multiplayer game has finally released. Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout, is a battle royale game that tasks 60 players with surviving rounds of Mario Party-style mini-games. Priced at $19.99 on PC, PlayStation users were met with a surprise when the game was announced for Sony’s PlayStation Plus program. This means, for the entire month of August, Fall Guys will be absolutely free to anyone who uses the general online service. However, many woke up this morning only to note that Fall Guys isn’t on PlayStation Plus or even available to purchase on PS4.
Is Fall Guys Live on PlayStation Plus?
Update: Fall Guys is currently live on PS Plus so go grab your copy!
At the time of writing this, Fall Guys has not become available on both PS4 and PlayStation Plus. Keep in mind, this game is available in certain regions of the world. For those in the United States, you will simply have to wait until the storefront updates. While Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remaster is downloadable, this adorable game isn’t yet. We suspect that Fall Guys will release either some time today or tomorrow, as this title has gained a lot of traction thanks to its Closed Betas. Since it’s not even on the PlayStation Store, it’s clear that the game hasn’t gone live on this console at all. There has been no word on social media from Mediatonic about when the game will launch on PS4, so you’ll need to be patient. Once the game is live or any new information is given, we will update this article.
How to Download Fall Guys on PlayStation Plus
Once the game goes live, you will need to go to your PS4’s home screen and goto the big yellow PlayStation Plus icon on the far left side of the top bar. Select this and then navigate through the various PlayStation Plus ads and information until you see Fall Guys appear. You should see a big blue box that says “Play Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout for free with PS Plus.”
Select this to be moved to the game’s store page and then claim Fall Guys in the bottom left corner. You are now free to download this title or just let it sit in your library. As long as you claim the game while it’s available for free, you will own it regardless of when the price goes back to normal. I always recommend picking up the free monthly games on PS Plus, as it’s a nice way to increase your library of titles for zero effort. Plus, you never know when you’ll have the urge to play a certain game!
What is Fall Guys?
For the unfamiliar, Fall Guys is a 60 player battle royale game that has users competing in different types of mini-games. These can range from ridiculous obstacle courses to playing a game of soccer to trying to be the last one standing as platforms rapidly vanish underneath your feet. There’s no combat, as users can only jump, dive, and grab onto fellow jelly bean people in an attempt to trip them up. It’s wacky, nonsense that never takes itself too seriously, despite some of the mini-games being quite competitive. So if you’re looking for a silly multiplayer game that will both make you laugh and scream in frustration, consider giving Fall Guys a try while it’s free this month!
