Despite the game being fully free to play, and creating a larger online community to play against, as it stands currently, Fall Guys does not support local multiplayer, split-screen, or couch co-op play. This means players even sitting next to each other with extra controllers at the ready will come up short, but it doesn't mean this will never be possible.

Mediatonic has recently stated in their official Fall Guys FAQ, that split-screen support will be "put forward as an option". Along with some other highly requested features that have been added, such as crossplay, and the availability of the game on Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.

The developers have been focusing on the online multiplayer experience of the game, as they have stated that "Fall Guys is best played with 40-60 players, and we've been focusing on the online multiplayer experience". But as the game continues to receive updates, Fall Guys developers are open to more suggestions and features being pushed by the audience on their official Discord Server.

It is understandable that some adjustments would need to be made for the game to be viable for fewer players locally. But we would still be excited to see the game start supporting local multiplayer along with split-screen and co-op modes, even if it were to be as a mini-game along with the main game.

As of now, however, the game is only available online and in full multiplayer. But as it is currently free to play, there is some solace in the fact that you can jump right into playing Fall Guys free of charge right now and play online against thousands of other adorable humanoids in a race to the finish line.
