Squirrelled-away on the backside of the press launch was the minor element that it will even be disappearing from Steam: Although those that already personal a Steam copy will proceed to obtain the identical updates as Epic Store gamers.

It has come to move, and now you can download Fall Guys totally free on EGS. It’s additionally making its debut on a number of consoles, which I point out as a result of the game now has cross-play and cross-progression throughout all platforms.
