Fall Guys: How to Enable Crossplay and Cross-Progression
After you have created an Epic account, or logged into your existing account, you’ll want to head over to the main Epic Games website. There, hover the mouse cursor over your username until a dropdown menu appears. Next, click on “Accounts.” On the accounts page, click on “Connections” and then select “Accounts.” This page will let you link your Epic Games store account with the console account of your choice (Xbox, PlayStation, or Nintendo). Click on the “Connect” button under the account you want to link, and the website will ask you to confirm. Just click “Link Account,” and a new tab will open asking you to log into your non-Epic account. If you’ve done everything correctly, Fall Guys will automatically link to your account when you log in. So, if you play Fall Guys on the PlayStation one day, you can still play on the Nintendo Switch the next day without fear of losing costumes or ranks.
That settles the cross-progression set-up process, but what about crossplay? Luckily, that feature is turned on by default, so you technically don’t have to bounce between menus just to enable it. However, if you would rather play against opponents who own the same console as you, go to Fall Guys’ Main Menu (the gear icon at the top of the screen), select “Options,” and then turn “Cross-Platform Matchmaking” to “Off.” While this could help you avoid potential cheaters and hackers (depending on which platforms you’re playing on), it will significantly increase the time it takes to gather enough players for a round. That latter problem may become more of an issue as the free-to-play version of the game gets a bit older and people start to lose interest.
As long as you have crossplay active, not only can you participate against opponents on any platform, but you can even invite friends playing the game to join your team, regardless of which platform they’re playing on. Just go to the Team Menu (the icon with several faces and a “+” symbol), select any of the “Invite” buttons, scroll down to the friend you want on your side, and press “Invite.”
That’s really all you need to know about crossplay and cross-progression in Fall Guys. Have fun and happy waddling.
