What time does Fall Guys launch on PS4 and Steam?
Fall Guys is officially slated for release on August 4, 2020 on PlayStation 4 and Steam. The official timing of launch is a little cloudy right now as the Fall Guys devs themselves are currently nailing down the exact details, as announced on the Fall Guys Twitter. That said, the Steam listing for Fall Guys stated that the game unlocked approximately around August 3 at 11p.m. PT / August 4 at 2a.m. ET. Take note, that was also an “approximate.” For PS4, there was little reason to believe its launch on that platform would be very different from the Steam PC launch. That said, Fall Guys noted the fact that PS4 took a little longer than PC to officially get out the door. That said, the game finally seems to have appeared on PS4's storefront at around 8:30a.m. PST / 11:30a.m. EST and should be available to pick up now.
That said, there are a few notable differences between Fall Guys on PC and PS4. PlayStation Plus subscribers will be able to get Fall Guys for free as a part of the PS Plus games for August 2020. All you have to do is log in to your PS4, go into the PlayStation Shop, go to the PS Plus tab, and claim the game.
If you don’t Fall Guys for free on PS Plus on PlayStation 4, then it will instead be $19.99 for the standard edition or $29.99 for the Collector’s Edition, which includes 10,000 Kudos (the in-game currency) to spend on costumes and other cosmetics as you see fit. Notably, if you did get the game for free via PS Plus, it will be the standard edition and you can upgradeto the Collector's Edition for $9.99. Regardless of which edition you buy, if you pre-purchase the game on Steam, you’ll get a Gordon Freeman/Head Crab costume.
As mentioned before, the timing can change, but the above timing on the game’s launch should be pretty close to accurate. Either way, check out our recent hands-on preview of Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout to see what we thought of the game leading up to its August 4 launch.
