The fun and quirky physics-driven platform game Fall Guys has made the jump from PlayStation platforms to Xbox Series X and the Epic Games Store, making it an exciting new addition to digital gaming libraries. The relaunch also saw the game go free-to-play, which allowed many more players to experience this unique take on the battle royale genre. Unfortunately, this did not include local split-screen multiplayer. Hopefully, this will be added in the future, but for now players will need to queue up online on their own devices to play together.

Does Fall Guys have Split Screen?

There is currently no split screen or couch co-op in Fall Guys, despite it being one of the most requested features since the game’s release. This is because the game uses a lot of processing power and if the system is busy with other games it can cause problems for everyone involved.

Instead, the only way to play with friends in Fall Guys is by logging in using an Epic Games account. This will allow you to see the player list and select a slot to invite your friend into. Once they accept your invitation, you can join a public match with them and compete in a variety of different mini-games to become the last player standing.

The fact that this is a battle royale-style game with no weapons and a more social focus does not help in the absence of split screen, but it is good to see that Mediatonic has addressed the issue by adding a frequently asked question on its FAQ page, stating that this feature will be “put forward as an option”. So for now, you will need to queue up on your own device or find a different couch-based co-op option like Gang Beasts.
