Fall Guys is no longer available on Steam, but PC players can still download and play the game for free.
The popular multiplayer game Fall Guys has become completely free-to-play, but it’s also disappeared from Steam. While PC gamers can still download and play Fall Guys for free, they’ll need to use the Epic Games Store instead.
Fall Guys Says Goodbye to Steam
As it was announced in May 2022, Fall Guys, one of the best cross-platform multiplayer games, became a free-to-play game on June 21, 2022. On the same date, Fall Guys became available on many other platforms like the Nintendo Switch, adding cross-platform play and cross-progressions features.
Unfortunately, not everything was good news. Fall Guys was also removed from Steam and became available exclusively on the Epic Games Store.
Why Is Fall Guys Not Available on Steam Anymore?
These changes came after Epic Games acquired Tonic Games Group in 2021. Tonic Games Group is the parent company of Mediatonic, the developer behind Fall Guys.
Unfortunately, that means that Fall Guys won’t be available on Steam anymore as Epic Games decided to move it to its own store. The good news is that if you’re a PC gamer, you can still download the game from the Epic Game Store and play it for free.
This isn’t the first time Epic Games has done this. In 2019, the company also acquired Psyonix, the developer behind the popular game Rocket League. Shortly after acquiring the company, Epic Games decided to turn Rocket League into a free-to-play title and make it available exclusively on the Epic Games Store.
What Happens if You Already Own a Steam Copy of Fall Guys?
As we mentioned before, new PC players can download Fall Guys for free via the Epic Games Store. But if you had previously downloaded the game from Steam, you have nothing to worry about.
Existing PC gamers who already own a Fall Guys copy from Steam will still receive the same updates as new players who downloaded the game from the Epic Store. That means you won’t need to download the game again or even use the Epic Games Store.
Not only that, but in a blog post from the Fall Guys website, the company confirmed that it would reward already existing players with a Legacy Pack. This pack contains a nickname, nameplate, the Regal costume, the Veggie Dog costume, the Feisty Dwarf costume, and a Season pass for Season 1 of the new free-to-play Fall Guys.
All you need to do is log in to your existing account after June 21, 2022, and you’ll get your Legacy Pack automatically.
It’s Time to Go Back to Fall Guys
There’s no better time to play Fall Guys than now. If you’re a new player, you’ll get the chance to play a really fun and popular game for free on your favorite console or PC. And if you were an existing player, you can pick up where you left off and get some cool new items at no extra cost.
