With Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout chugging right along, there seems to be no stopping the new battle royale in town. That said, a new update has arrived for the popular title that brings the Valve costumes to PS4, adds a few gameplay improvements, and more.
The developers at Mediatonic recently took to Twitter via the official Fall Guys account to release the notes for the "sneaky update." Yes, it is called the sneaky update because they "stealthily" made the new changes just prior to actually telling anyone about them. The update itself is small and only contains a few things, but they are rather significant changes and based on feedback from the community.
The replies probably already show - but a lot of these changes are based directly on your feedback!— Fall Guys 👑 (@FallGuysGame) August 20, 2020
Fall Guys is always 👀
Most notably, the new Fall Guys update will bring the popular Valve costumes to the store on the PS4 version of the game. Until now, they have only been available on PC. In addition to this, a few gameplay changes have been made. The maximum number of players that will be allowed on Fall Mountain has been limited to 15. The timer for Team Tail Tag and Royal Fumble used to be set at two minutes, but both have now been reduced to 1:30. To top it all off, there will no longer be anymore back-to-back team games. This was definitely one of the larger complaints from players as a lot of folks seem to be a bigger fan of the solo games, so being thrust into multiple team games in a row just didn't feel good.
Fall Guys has essentially swept the gaming community off of its feet since launch. It quickly rose to the top of Twitch and Steam, it's currently free on PS4 via PlayStation Plus, TimTheTatman finally got a crown, brands are competing for an in-game skin in the name of charity, and much more. Needless to say, it's looking more and more like Fall Guys is exactly the type of game that 2020 needed.
