Will we ever be able to play Fall Guys on mobile? That’s the age-old question, and one in which we hope to answer in this guide. We’re going to round up everything we know so far, including sneaky comments made by developers and potential launches in certain territories. We’ll also bust a myth or two regarding the battle royale sensation already existing on mobile. That way, by the time you’re done reading this, you’ll be armed with all of the facts.
For those that don’t know what Fall Guys is, it’s a 60 player battle royale with absurd obstacle courses, adorable characters, and quirky graphics. The aim of the game is to be in the top percentage of players across four randomly selected qualifying rounds. The qualifying rounds involve a mixture of mini-games, some are race-like events with obstacles, others are team-based events like fall ball or tail tag. Qualifying in each round earns you a spot in the finale, where there can only be one winner.

What’s with all of the Fall Guys clones?
The official Fall Guys Twitter account Tweeted on August 17, warning people not to believe any adverts about Fall Guys on mobile. It confirmed that Fall Guys is only available on PC and PS4, and that anything else you see is a scam. The Tweet also included a screenshot of one of these scams, where the mouse cursor is clearly visible on the smartphone.

Could Fall Guys run on mobile?
Fall Guys has a file size of around 4GB, which will make it one of the larger mobile games, but by no means too big. Games like Fortnite, which has a similar cartoony art style, are optimised to run on mobile and perform remarkably well. Fall Guys was also developed on Unity, the same game engine used to develop many mobile games like Hearthstone, Call of Duty: Mobile, and Mario Kart Tour, so it could feasibly run quite well on mobile. We’ll keep you posted as we learn more.
