ORIGINAL REPORT: Fall Guys Season 1: Free For All is coming to PlayStation, Xbox, PC and Nintendo Switch on June 21st. At this point, the game will become free-to-play and will see the release of a range of new content, as well as optimizations to existing systems.

Although the exact release time of Fall Guys Free-to-Play is yet to be announced by developer Mediatonic, the in-game counter for the end of the current season is as follows:

  • UK: 1pm (BST / UK)
  • Europe: 2 p.m. (CEST / Western Europe)
  • US East Coast: 8:00 am (EST / US East Coast)
  • US West Coast: 5am (PST / US West Coast)

This aligns with previous updates like hotfixes or major updates adding things like Jump Showdown where Fall Guys is usually updated in the afternoon UK time.

Why is there no exact time? According to Mediatonic, they first want to make sure “there are no gremlins in the system”. In any case, it will likely be during UK working hours today, assuming all goes smoothly.
