Mediatonic’s battle royale-esque Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout recently released for PC and PS4. It was even offered for free to PlayStation Plus subscribers this month. Whether it was due to word of mouth or the fun premise, the party game has seen tons of traffic. The developer reported more than 1.5 million new players within the first 24 hours alone.
Server problems plagued the game’s initial launch but things should be much more stable now. Mediatonic is currently listening to feedback and ideas from fans along with working on the first patch. It said that it was “super grateful to everyone who’s supported so far!”
Published by Devolver Digital, Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout sees 60 bean-shaped players participating in a number of different wacky obstacle courses. These include jumping over beams, navigating constantly shifting rings and much more. More and more players are eliminated with each subsequent round until only a handful are left to compete for the crown (which can be used to purchase new cosmetics).
Stay tuned for more details on player numbers and patches in the coming days.
