Are Fall Guys Seasons Free? The Ultimate Guide on Getting the Fall Guys Battle Pass

Are Fall Guys Seasons Free?

No, Fall Guys seasons are not free. Each Fall Guys season requires purchasing a Season Pass in order to unlock all of the content. Here‘s a detailed look at how Fall Guys seasons and Season Passes work:

What is a Fall Guys Season Pass?

A Fall Guys Season Pass is a purchase that unlocks all of the content for that particular season. This includes:

  • The premium Season Pass costume and accessories
  • Access to the premium Season Pass rewards track with over 50 cosmetic items to unlock
  • Unlimited access to new levels and variations added in that season
  • Early access to new features and content
  • Without the Season Pass, you‘ll have limited access to new levels and costumes in that season.

    How Much Do Fall Guys Season Passes Cost?

    Fall Guys Season Passes are priced at 950 Show Bucks per season. Show Bucks can be purchased with real money as follows:

  • 950 Show Bucks – $7.99 USD
  • 2800 Show Bucks – $19.99 USD
  • 5750 Show Bucks – $32.99 USD
  • 12,000 Show Bucks – $59.99 USD
  • So a single Fall Guys Season Pass costs around $8 if you just buy the minimum Show Bucks needed.

    What Do You Get with a Fall Guys Season Pass?

    Each Fall Guys Season Pass includes:

  • 1 Premium Costume with Upper, Lower, Pattern, and Color options – This is unique to that season and exclusive to Season Pass owners
  • 1 Premium Season Pass Nameplate and Nickname
  • Season Pass Rewards Track with over 50 cosmetic items – These include costumes, colors, patterns, emotes, nameplates, nicknames, kudos, crowns, and more. You earn these by completing challenges and gaining XP during the season.
  • Instant access to new levels, rounds, and variations added in that season – Non-Season Pass owners have limited access.
  • Early access to new features and content before they are available to all
  • So in summary, you get a premium costume, over 50 cosmetic rewards, early access to new levels and features, and bonuses like kudos and crowns.

    What Happens When a Fall Guys Season Ends?

    When a Fall Guys season ends after about 2-3 months, all players will lose access to the Season Pass rewards track and early access to levels. However, Season Pass owners get to keep the following permanently:

  • The premium Season Pass costume and accessories
  • Any rewards you unlocked during the season
  • Purchased DLC packs and cosmetics from that season
  • For non-Season Pass owners, you‘ll keep any normal season rewards, costumes, etc you earned or purchased in the shop during the season.

    A new Fall Guys season will then begin with a new Season Pass and rewards track.

    Tips and Strategies for Domination

    Want to up your Fall Guys game and start dominating matches? Here are my top pro tips:

    Master jumping, diving, and grabbing

    Precise platforming with mid-air dives and grabs will let you easily clear obstacles and stay alive. Get the timing down in solo play before taking on other beans.

    Learn level layouts and optimal paths

    Study each level‘s map and find the quickest routes to qualify or score points. Knowing where bumpers or shortcuts are can give you an edge.

    Use a speedy costume and color

    Certain costume pieces like the Ninja bottom make you slightly faster. Pair with bright colors to spot yourself more easily.

    Play defense on team games

    On levels like Egg Scramble or Snowy Scrap, focus on defense by protecting your team‘s eggs or stealing opponents‘ snowballs.

    Sabotage selectively in survival rounds

    You can grab or bump other players in rounds like Slime Climb but be careful not to sabotage yourself as well!

    Learn advanced strategies for finals

    Each final like Fall Mountain or Hex-a-gone has little tricks like optimal paths, fake-outs, and perfect jump timing.
