Do you need Nintendo Switch Online, PS Plus, and Xbox Live to play Fall Guys? Fall Guys recently transitioned to a free-to-play model, but just because a game is deemed "free-to-play" doesn't necessarily mean it actually is. Some titles on consoles like Nintendo Switch, PlayStation, and Xbox require users to sign up for a subscription to play online. So, with that said, let's figure out if you need Nintendo Switch Online, PS Plus, and Xbox Live to play Fall Guys.

Do You Need Nintendo Switch Online To Play Fall Guys?

No, you do not need a Nintendo Switch Online subscription to play Fall Guys. This means that Fall Guys really is entirely free-to-play on Nintendo Switch.

If you want to play a title like Mario Strikers: Battle League or Animal Crossing online with other players, you'll need to cough up the £3.49 a month to secure a Nintendo Switch online subscription. However, third-party games like Fall Guys and Fortnite usually waive this requirement.

 

Do You Need PS Plus To Play Fall Guys?

Nope! If you're playing on PlayStation, you don't need a PS Plus membership to play Fall Guys online. As long as you have an internet connection, you can hop right in and chase those Crowns.

As is the case with Nintendo Switch Online, most free-to-play PlayStation titles do not require a PS Plus membership. A PS Plus membership is vital for games like GTA and Rainbow Six, but not Fall Guys.

Do You Need Xbox Live To Play Fall Guys?

Continuing the trend, you do not need an Xbox Live membership to play Fall Guys on Xbox One or Xbox Series X|S. However, Xbox Game Pass subscribers do get some extra benefits when it comes to Fall Guys

Xbox Game Pass Perks are free rewards granted to subscribers as a bonus incentive to stay enrolled in the service. The Fall Guys Robo Rabbit costume was a free Xbox Game Pass Perk throughout June, while the Coconut Milk Skin was available in July. Next up, Xbox Game Pass subscribers can redeem the Purple Hipster costume by heading to the Perks gallery on their Xbox console or Xbox Game Pass app on a smart device.

So, in the end, you don't need Nintendo Switch Online, PS Plus, or Xbox Live to play Fall Guys. Xbox Game Pass members get some extra benefits, but overall, Fall Guys truly is free-to-play all-around.

Do you own any of the rarest Fall Guys Skins?
