With so many new players joining Fall Guys, you'll want to personalize your appearance to make sure you stand out. You can do this in a number of ways, like getting one of the new skins, or also changing your name.

Changing your name allows your friends to easily recognize you, though some of the Fall Guys community seemed to take advantage of the name change feature. With many players changing their names to inappropriate or offensive words, Mediatonic temporarily disabled the name change feature.

Now that the game has been made free-to-play, it's likely that the name change feature will be available again to service all the new players. Though you'll likely need to avoid using any profanity or prohibited language (as determined by the game developers). Here are the simple steps for changing your name in Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout.
