  • Fortnite gaming company Epic Games has bought the studio of the popular Fall Guy game.

  • This could lead to some crossover content in the games.

  • In addition, “Fall Guys” will appear on Xbox and Nintendo Switch.

Epic Games takes over the Tonic Games Group, which consists of the two subsidiaries Mediatonic and Fortitude Games. They developed the hype game “Fall Guys”, which is currently only downloadable on the PlayStation and on the PC. However: Xbox and Nintendo players watch out! A version for the Xbox and the Nintendo Switch will appear this year. However, there are still no plans to bring the game to market for free, as is the case with “Rocket League” or “Fortnite”.

The Epic Games account system, cross-play and new squad game modes, as known from “Fortnite” and “Rocket League”, are to be added. There may also be various crossovers between the games. One possibility would be that there are special skins in “Fortnite” or even similar obstacle courses as in “Fall Guys”, which would certainly be interesting. In addition, it could happen that you can earn in-game content in “Fall Guys” for “Fortnite” or vice versa. This was the case with “Rocket League”. Dataminder have also found “Fortnite” skins in the “Fall Guys” source code.

There is already a possibility to play similar game modes from “Fall Guys” in “Fortnite”. You can use the creative mode to play maps that other players have created yourself. You have to enter the corresponding island code and off you go. You can complete various courses that look similar to the “Fall Guys” maps.

However, these games don’t always run smoothly, which can be frustrating. In the event of a crossover, “Fortnite” could lead to an official “Fall Guys” mode, which would always run smoothly with a large number of players.
