In case you missed it, Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout is now here and it’s quite possibly one of the finest things to shine through the terrible darkness that is 2020.
A Battle Royale for up to 60 online players, Fall Guys pits you against hordes of other delightful jelly bean-looking things as you battle for superiority. Unlike your typical BR game, you won’t be besting the rest by being a sharp shooter, but instead by pulling tails off your competitors, collecting eggs, crashing through walls and trying to keep your balance.
If you ever watched Takeshi’s Castle, Fall Guys is the bright, colourful and wonderfully frustrating gaming equivalent.
Released this week on Steam and PlayStation 4, Fall Guys is actually free to download and keep if you’re a PlayStation Plus subscriber (for as long as you remain a subscriber, that is), and it’s a pure delight for the eyes and ears.
Already one of the hottest topics across social media, and amassing more than 1.5 million players within its first 24 hours of launch, Fall Guys is the game everyone’s talking about.
Even CD Projekt Red has been talking Fall Guys, with both its official Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter account and its official The Witcher account getting in on the fun.
If you’re not familiar with the game, its official description reads as follows: “Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout flings hordes of contestants together online in a mad dash through round after round of escalating chaos until one victor remains! Battle bizarre obstacles, shove through unruly competitors, and overcome the unbending laws of physics as you stumble towards greatness. Leave your dignity at the door and prepare for hilarious failure in your quest to claim the crown!”
A true gem that’s absolutely worth checking out, Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout can be downloaded for PlayStation 4, or on Steam right here.
