How To Activate Your Epic Games Account on Fall Guys
Fall Guys is free to play on PC, Xbox, PlayStation, and Nintendo Switch, but there are a few things you should do after downloading it. After the Season 1 Free For All update, you may be requested to enable Epic Games on Fall Guys. Meaning? Well… our mission.
Devolver Digital released Fall Guys. Epic Games acquired Tonic Games Group (Fall Guys’ developer Mediatonic) in March 2021. This required players to download a new launcher halfway through Season 6 and activate their Epic Games account on Fall Guys. Fall Guy crossplay and cross-progression are enabled.
So, similar to Rocket League and Fortnite, two of Epic Games’ most popular multi-platform free-to-play products, Fall Guys includes all of the bells and whistles that one would anticipate from a game of this nature. You will be able to play with your friends regardless of the platform you use, and all of your Fall Guys skins will be accessible regardless of where you play the game. You only need to be familiar with the process of linking your accounts.
Without further ado, let’s dive into the nuts and bolts of that operation. Once you get your brain around it, you’ll be relieved to know how easy it is.
HOW TO TURN ON EPIC GAMES IN THE FALL
Log into your Epic Games account through Fall Guys to link it to your Fall Guys account.
Fall Guys should prompt you to link accounts when you start it up. Follow the on-screen instructions to link your Epic Games and Fall Guys accounts.
You can do this through an on-screen internet link or a scannable QR code. Linking your Epic Games and Fall Guys accounts on PlayStation will utilize that account’s progress. If you wish to play Xbox in the future, do all of this on your Xbox.
If you’ve been playing on PlayStation and wish to play on Xbox, you must activate Epic Games on your PlayStation account first, making it “primary.”
Here’s what to do if you make a mistake and need to switch your “main” Fall Guys account:
- Visit the Fall Guys Support website by clicking here.
- To submit a request, go to the “Epic Games Accounts” menu and click “Submit A Request.”
- Choose “Epic Games Accounts: Profile and Items Transfers” from the pull-down menu, then choose “Update Primary Platform Profile/Primary Profile Switch” from a different menu.
- Choose the principal platform you want to use from the available options, then finish filling out the rest of the form before submitting it.
You should then receive an email asking if you want to switch platforms and migrate your accounts. It should be done like magic!
If you missed it, Visit the Epic Games website to link them all up.
Log in and click “account” under your account name to link your PSN, Xbox, and Nintendo accounts under the connections page.
