Fall Guys Season 6 Mid-Season Update: Crossplay Has Arrived!

WELCOME, BEAN FANS! The time has come. Our Season 6 update comes with some of our most-anticipated functionality: you can now party-up with your Fall Guys buddies regardless of whether they’re on PC or PlayStation™, courtesy of some swanky tech from our friends at Epic Online Services! We’re also delighted to introduce a brand-new game mode called Sweet Thieves, as well as a whole host of bug-fixes for you to sink your wrenches into. Let’s gooooooo!

Team Fall Guys / February 22, 2022

You can launch into our update right now on PlayStation™ and Steam, but if not, let us take you on a tour of what the new update brings!


So first and foremost, we’re SO pumped to announce the arrival of cross-platform lobbies! This means that you and your friends can form parties while playing Fall Guys regardless of whether they are on PC or PlayStation™. Though you were previously able to form cross-platform lobbies in Custom Shows, this now means you can party-up and enjoy any of our applicable playlists in Fall Guys—from Squads, to Duos, to Main Show and beyond.

As long as you and your friends have already linked your Epic Accounts to Fall Guys, you’ll be able to play together by using the “Invite Players” functionality. Don’t worry if you, or others, haven’t linked accounts yet; there’ll be a prompt to do so upon launching the game. Here’s more info on linking your Epic account! Anyone that you already have added as friends on PlayStation™ or Steam will automatically appear in your Epic friends list. To add new friends,simply search for them by using their Epic or PlayStation™ name, and voila - if they also have a linked account their name will appear.

To invite players to your party in Fall Guys, you can just press “Invite Players” from your main screen, and your Epic Friends will be available to party-up with. Find out more about how this works and check out our FAQs over on our Fall Guys Support Page. The Support Team is also on hand to help in case you run into any issues!

We know that news regarding Fall Guys on Nintendo Switch™ and Xbox is highly anticipated. We're finalising development, and though it isn't within this update, it’s still coming! Until then, we're super excited to enable this cross-platform functionality for our existing platforms as a first step.

Sweet Thieves

You may have heard whispers of this mode in the past under a different name - or, perhaps, seen an erroneous image called INVISIBEANS PLACEHOLDER circa Season 6 launch. Under a new, sweeter name, Sweet Thieves is coming to the game in the very near future. This Round is split into two types of players: Thieves, and Guardians. Whilst the Thieves navigate the level to secure and steal candy pieces, Guardians must locate and detain them, and ultimately send the Thieves to Jail. Don’t worry though, Thieves can free each other at the push of a button…

Oh, and did we mention it comes with a new mechanic?! Exclusive to this mode, you’ll be able to make your Fall Guy walk, instead of run. Perfect for all of you sneaky beanies.

But we don’t want to jump the (chewing) gum - you’ll see a deep-dive and trailer on this mode very soon.
