What You Need

  • Fall Guys

  • Epic Games account

Even though Fall Guys is, at its core, competitive, you can still invite and play with all your friends no matter if you're on Switch and they're on PC, Xbox, or PlayStation. However, unlike inviting friends in games where you're all on the same console, inviting friends who play on different platforms can be a bit tricky. Fall Guys tries to make it easy, but it still takes a few steps. Here's a full guide on how to invite your friends on all platforms for a round of Fall Guys.

How to make money in Animal Crossing: New Horizons
Standing next to bells in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

One of the most important things to be aware of in Animal Crossing: New Horizons is that bells are the driving force of your island. Bells are the backbone of the game's economy. Without bells, you'll face criticism from the Happy Home Academy, get hounded by Tom Nook to repay loans, and stare longingly at the amazing items that Nooks Cranny sometimes has to offer. Unfortunately, making bells initially seems tedious. But it doesn't have to be. New Horizons is already the most successful entry in the entire franchise. It’s also the most extensive release by far, adding intricacies on top of familiar challenges.

Mario, Luigi, and Peach stand around a Mario flag in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

Animal Crossing has always been a series that isn't afraid to break the fourth wall and incorporate elements from other Nintendo properties. Being a life simulation, this only makes sense. The people most likely to have some sort of decoration, clothing, or other memorabilia for Nintendo franchises are also the ones most likely to be invested in games like Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Even if that's not a player's real-life style, the fantasy of decorating and designing an entire island in ways you never would, or could, is incredibly appealing.

Characters fighting on horseback in Elden Ring.

The various Souls and Souls-adjacent games that FromSoftware has developed ever since Demon's Souls have all introduced or iterated on new features that few if any other games ever attempted. We're talking about more than just difficulty, too. Things like how the games handle death, leveling up, currency, and story were all fresh takes in the industry when most gamers first saw how they were done. Perhaps the most ambitious -- and at times clunky -- innovation came in how the games handled multiplayer as a component. With Elden Ring being the latest in its catalog, many wonder how FromSoftware will change these systems, if it does at all.

Elden Ring is a Souls game at heart, only now viewed through the lens of an open-world experience. Fans of the studio's previous works will immediately recognize various multiplayer aspects, such as messages written by players, ghosts, and bloodstains showing the last moments of someone else's life. Summoning help, invading, or being invaded, however, is the real meat of what people expect from a multiplayer standing, and these all are back in Elden Ring. But with the game coming to every major platform, including past generation systems, will you be able to play with friends on different systems? Here's all the info you need on whether or not Elden Ring is cross-platform.
