Fortnite helped Fall Guys come to the world of Free to Play
Fortnite is the king of free-to-play gaming. In a world where microtransactions support a video game for years past their original launch date, there’s no need to charge players access to a game. If the game is popular enough it’ll create opportunities to make money. Fans seem ok by this, it’s only games like Madeen, which require you to pay $60 upfront and then loads of microtransactions after, that really upset fans. So it’s no wonder that another Epic-owned game, Fall Guys is going free to play.
The announcement of Fall Guys going free-to-play came via Fortnite, which used a special in-game theater to help their Epic relatives out.
This isn’t surprising, as not only has free-to-play been rumored for some time now, but there have been talks of a long-rumored crossover between the two brands finally coming to fruition on the battlefields of Fortnite.
Epic Games is bringing Fall Guys to all platforms
Fall Guys will be going free-to-play soon and will be on Xbox, PlayStation, the Nintendo Switch, and the Epic Games PC store soon. In five weeks’ time, the game will be cross-platform and cross-progression enabled, meaning that if you’re on a Switch, you could be battling someone on a PC, and if you started your gaming on a PlayStation, you can switch to the Xbox and continue your gaming without losing a single thing.
That’s not all. When Fall Guys become free-to-play, Fortnite fans will finally get what they long-wanted, a collaboration with their Epic Games cousin. There are rumors of a Blunder bundle, which will feature several Fall Guys-related items for Fortnite fans to purchase and use in-game. This is part of a long-rumored crossover that is years in the making.
Though that hasn’t been announced officially just yet.
