Get ready, because our dreams have now come true. Fall Guys Season Two released today! That’s right, get ready for all new levels, costumes, and obstacles that will make you scream. Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout was initially announced at E3 2019, and was released worldwide on PlayStation 4 and Steam on August 4th, 2020. Like Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Mario Party, and Among Us, Fall Guys became most popular during the Coronavirus Pandemic. As many found themselves out of school and work, video games gained more popularity as they allowed people to socialize while being able to stay safe at home. In its first 24 hours, Fall Guys had garnered 1.5 million players, and servers even had issues keeping up.
The best part about Fall Guys, is that it combines the competitiveness of Battle Royale with their 60 person format and the comedy of ‘Wipeout’ style game shows. Game developer, Mediatonic, drew inspiration in character development from a show called “It’s A Knockout”, in which contestants were forced to wear oversized costumes while competing in tasks & games. Mediatonic wanted to carry this on and even implemented ragdoll physics because “falling over is funny”. So here we are, running around as bean men, in costumes, competing against 59 other players, in a wipeout style course with all the wrenches they can throw at us. It’s gotta make for good fun right?
Fast forward to October 8th, 2020; Fall Guys had completed its very first season and has now released the sought after Season Two. This time around, we are treated to a medieval theme, full with medieval costumes and challenges. One of these new levels is called Knight Fever, featuring the latest character to grace our mini games, the Thicc Bonkus. Yes, that is thicc with two c’s lol. The other new levels include; Hoopsie Legends, Egg Siege, and Wall Guys. Keeping with our medieval theme, new costumes such as; wizards, witches, dragons, and knights.
A couple other enhancements include a random costume generator, new graphic improvements to Season One levels, as well as new customization options as well. This season of Fall Guys is sure to give us a run for our Kudos!
