Fall Guys Season 6 has introduced compulsory Epic Games accounts for all players. That means you’ll need to create or sign into an Epic Games account to play online. What’s more, if you play on two platforms like PC and PS4, you’ll need to pick which is your Primary Profile and where you’d like all of your content to carry over. Below, we’ll walk you through everything you need to know about linking your Epic Games account and choosing or swapping your Primary Profile.
Fall Guys: How to link your Epic Games account
After you update Fall Guys to Season 6, the first time you load up the game, you’ll be presented with a login screen for an Epic Games account. Take heed: Whichever platform you log into first will become your primary account. Items can be transferred between accounts, but Crown, Kudos, and Fame cannot.
If you’re playing on Steam and have already linked your Steam and Epic Games accounts, all you need to do is enter your date of birth. If you don’t have an account, you’ll need to create one.
If you’re playing on PlayStation and have an Epic Games account, log in using the form that appears on your screen when you first launch Fall Guys Season 6. You’ll be prompted to go to the address listed on screen or scan the QR code to log in via your phone, tablet, or PC.
If you want to share progress with your PC account, make sure you log in using the same Epic Games account on both platforms. Again, the first platform you log into will become your primary platform. If you log into the wrong one, you’ll need to swap your Primary Account between PC and PlayStation.
How to swap your Primary Profile PS4 and PC in Fall Guys
To swap your primary profile in Fall Guys between PS4 and PC, you need to submit a Fall Guys support ticket and follow a series of precise steps. Take note: You can only swap your Primary Profile once. Make the swap and you are stuck with that account forever.
Keen to continue? Here’s how to swap your Fall Guys Primary Profile:
- Visit the Fall Guys Support Website here
- Click the Epic Games Accounts button
- Click Submit A Request
- From the dropdown menu, select “Epic Games Accounts: Profile and Item Tranfers”
- From the dropdown menu under Epic Games Accoun Help, select “Update Primary Platform Profile / Primary Profile Switch
- Select your desired Primary Platform from the next dropdown menu
- Enter the remaining details, including your Fall Guys Support ID (see below)
- Describe which account you want to use in the Subject and Description boxes
- Submit the request
- Check your connected email
- Read the details in the email and, if correct, reply with “[Yes I would like to proceed with migration]”
To get your Fall Guys Support ID, load up the game and shift across to the settings menu. Select Profile, then press the Reveal Support ID button as shown above. Be sure to avoid sharing this ID with anyone other than the Fall Guys support team, as it allows people to make changes to your account.
Follow the steps above and you should be able to link your Epic Games Account in Fall Guys. It’s quite harsh that the game automatically makes the first account you log into your Primary Account, but fortunately it’s possible to request a swap to ensure you don’t lose all of your unlocks. It may take several days for the swap to occur, so be patient. Contact Fall Guys support again if you have any trouble with the shift.
