PlayStation Plus August free game Fall Guys is now available to download

Both of August’s free PlayStation Plus games are now available to download for free, with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered being joined by the cute and cuddly battle royale game Fall Guys.

Fall Guys is out today for PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam, but is launching as a freebie for PS Plus subscribers in August.

Here’s the download links for August’s PlayStation Plus games:

Ordinarily Fall Guys will cost you £15.99 on the PlayStation Store or Steam, but the game is free. Alongside its release is the first cosmetic DLC, a set of fast food themed costumes, though there is also an in-game set of patterned skins and costumes to unlock as you play.

We were playing the game last weekend in the last technical beta test before release and had an absolute ball. Read our Fall Guys preview here, where Jim said:

Tied up in such a cheeky, vibrant package, Fall Guys has the makings of a true multiplayer marvel and one that touts slapstick silliness over a constant barrage of blood and bullets. We’ll be throwing ourselves into this mad little game on launch day and we’ll surely be grinning from ear to ear as we do.

Medatonic have released a little behind the scenes making of video, one that was clearly recorded much, much earlier in 2020.

Last night saw the game’s trophy list revealed, with no small amount of puns and trolling of those trying to earn the platinum. Those aiming to unlock the Fall Guys platinum trophy will undoubtedly struggle when it comes to completing the conditions for “Infallible” – a gold trophy which requires you to come first five times in a row. A trophy the dev team can’t see anyone unlocking unless you truly are a Fall Guys deity.

Do you think you’ll be up for the challenge? Let us know if you’ll be giving it your best shot.

  1. Barrels of fun! Just win my first match there and it is brilliant!

  2. Well, it’s not off to a great start. Can’t connect to the server, then can’t find a game, then a bit more of not connecting, and finally got a game and get no reward afterwards because the server goes missing again.

    • It’s actually reasonably fun, but the servers obviously can’t cope today. Might come back to it, or might decide there’s a million other things I could be doing instead. It’s not exactly something people are going to put up with broken servers for too long, is it?

      • I agree as there are server problems as I have not gained a level after winning/losing a round and atuck at lvl 1 due to error messages at the end of the game.

      • The good news is, it does actually appear to remember the results. I’m now up to level 4, but it took a while to appear. I’m not sure if games where you get halfway through and then disconnect count for anything though, or if only the ones where it says it failed to get your rewards count.

        Season rewards also seem to take a while to show up.

  3. A friend of mine worked on this game. :) I’ve yet to play it as my internet’s down at home.
