Wondering if you can play Fall Guys split screen or in two player local multiplayer? Its simple, fun gameplay model feels like it'd be perfect for some couch co-op option where friends can play in local multiplayer modes, but unfortunately, at time of writing there is no option for split screen in Fall Guys, despite it being hotly requested ever since the game's release. We'll cover the full details of Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout and its support for local multiplayer below, as well as when such a feature is likely to be added in the future.

Can you play Fall Guys split screen?

As mentioned, Fall Guys does not have any local multiplayer, split screen, or couch co-op support. But that doesn't mean it won't happen! Mediatonic has addressed the frequently requested topic in their official Fall Guys FAQ, stating that split screen support will be "put forward as an option", alongside some other highly asked-for features like Fall Guys crossplay and Fall Guys Xbox One and Nintendo Switch - both of which have been added since the initial release.

In another, separate answer on the FAQ, the topic of private lobbies in offline multiplayer is also addressed. "Fall Guys is best played with 40-60 players, and we've been focusing on the online multiplayer experience," reads the answer, before explaining that the idea can be suggested as a feature on the official Fall Guys Discord server. Some alterations to the minigames would have to be made for it to still be enjoyable with fewer players, but it would no doubt be a welcome addition. Fall Guys esports competitions, anyone?

Give me a game and I will write every "how to" I possibly can or die trying. When I'm not knee-deep in a game to write guides on, you'll find me hurtling round the track in F1, flinging balls on my phone in Pokemon Go, pretending to know what I'm doing in Football Manager, or clicking on heads in Valorant.
