Before getting in depth with step by step instructions, if you’re in a hurry, here are the things that you should try in order to fix the Fall Guys Different Version error:

  1. Make sure that your game is updated to the latest version (same for all your friends)

When searching online to see if other people have the Different Content Version error and maybe manage to find another potential solution, I found an user on reddit recommending the following:

Finally, sometimes the easiest tricks can solve the most annoying problems. Try to simply restart your computer or console and try again. This works, surprisingly, more often than not.
