I am very excited about playing Fall Guys on PS4, but I know I’m going to be pretty terrible at it – at for least a short while – because the game has launched without an Invert Y-Axis option, or any controller options at all, on console.
The game show-like battle royale launched on PS4 and Steam today, but only the latter includes controller options, including button-binding, sensitivity, and invert options. You can see the difference between the two versions’ menus below.
It’s not clear why the two versions differ in this way. When asked for comment, developer Mediatonic said, “We’re currently looking into this and hoping to have it resolved in a future hotfix.”

On a serious level, the ability to rebind buttons as a whole is a key element of accessibility for many players with reduced mobility in their hands.
On a less important level, for a fully controller-based version of a game to not offer any customisation (when it exists on other platforms) is, well, just a bit odd. It may seem a minor issue, but for the sizeable number of absolute brain-geniuses like me who prefer their Y-axis flipped, it will make the game meaningfully more difficult to play until the option is added.
Hopefully, it won’t take too long for Mediatonic to remedy the issue.
