‘Fall Guys’, which has sold over 10 million copies as a console game, will be provided free of charge. Epic Games announced on the 22nd that it has converted Pole Guys to free and has launched a new game for the Epic Games Store, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox.
Anyone can enjoy Pole Guys for free on PC as well as various consoles such as Nintendo Switch, Xbox, and PlayStation. If you use an Epic Games account, cross-play and cross-progression functions are supported on all platforms served. At the same time as the free conversion, Pole Guys includes ‘Speed Circuit’, ‘Blast Ball’, ‘Bouncing Floor’, and ‘Pol Guys Volleyball’. Season 1 “We All Free Play”, a new season with new round obstacles added, begins.
Pole Guys is a battle royale game in which up to 60 players play mini-game rounds until the final winner is revealed. It was released on PC and PlayStation 4 in August 2020 and has been popular with cumulative sales of more than 10 million copies worldwide. In March of last year, Epic Games acquired Mediatonic, the developer of Pole Guys.
Simon Aleis, Epic Games Senior Director, said, “It’s very meaningful that Pole Guys supports cross-play and cross-progression. The ability to connect with friends regardless of where you play is powerful.”
