Fall Guys developer Mediatonic has released Season 4.5 (DAVE) for the popular video game, and while there are a number of different additions like new rounds, variations, and custom lobbies, there is one part of the update that absolutely stands out from the rest: crossplay. PlayStation 4 and PC players can, as of today, matchmake together in all of Fall Guys' various game modes. Cross-platform parties are not yet possible, but it sounds like something that the developer is still working on.
In general, Fall Guys adding crossplay here and now is an interesting move as it sets it up to more easily bridge the gap to the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S versions that are set to launch this summer. Crossplay between two platforms -- PlayStation 4 and PC -- should provide a bunch of data and allow for the developer to tweak anything that needs tweaking before there are several other platforms to consider.
