Fall Guys has had an eventful journey till now. When it released on August 4, 2020, it went viral. It was a game that you could purchase on Steam but soon after that, the number of players started to drop. from 124,479 in August 2020 to 6,378 in May 2022 (thanks, Steamcharts), it was quite the rollercoaster ride. But now Fall Guys is free to play and available on Epic Games Store instead of Steam. So, what’s the Fall Guys player count in 2022 and how many people are playing the game on Steam and Epic? Find out here.
Fall Guys Player Count 2022
Fall Guys went free to play on June 21, 2022 and on June 25, 2022, @EpicGames & @FallGuysGame tweeted that they have reached 20 million players in the first 48 hours of free for all. This is a huge feat because it’s more than 2x their previous PC concurrent users record. This record number of players is certainly good news for the devs, Mediatonic. Unfortunately, the exact number of active players for a particular game on Epic isn’t available online.
Another element that added to the high player count of Fall Guys is that it was released on new platforms as well (along with cross play). So now, Fall Guys is free to play on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and Nintendo Switch. The mobile version of the game is only confirmed to release in China right now. If they manage to bring the game to mobile users worldwide, it will enjoy a great burst of popularity, pretty quickly. We hope that’s in the pipeline already.
If you already have bought the game on Steam and want to jump back in, don’t worry. Even though new players cannot purchase this title on Steam since it was removed from the store, if you already have it, you can continue playing. Many players are trying it out once again after the hype increased, as evidenced by the player count on Steam charts.
More players can also mean more server issues and many did experience it in the first few days after launch. If you get the Failed to login error, Epic Games Account error or authentication failure error, we have some guides that can help you out.
