After season one ends, for a short period of time, players will be rewarded with double fame, the game’s version of XP, as the double fame event will begin on Monday, October 5.
Season two will have a lot more customization options, new rounds, a lot of medieval-themed costumes, and players will receive crowns more frequently as regular progress, as opposed to only being rewarded with one for winning the match.
New Rounds– Featuring our wildest obstacles yet and a variety of new mechanics to test your beans’ mettle and dexterity! New customization options– Nameplates and Banners arrive to help show off your undoubtedly wonderful personality. All the costumes– expect the latest in bean fashion, including exciting collaborations and limited edition swag to keep you in the hottest Fall looks. Party falling– never tumble alone! Queue with pals, fall with your pals. And more– more, more, more.
After going free on PlayStation Plus over the summer, Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout quickly became one of the most popular and successful games of the year. However, there were several publishers who had not faith in the project, as ten of them rejected the game before Devolver Digital agreed to take a chance on the game.
Shortly after being released, Mediatonic’s Jeff Tanton detailed the game’s original pitch, which you can check out below.
“It’s you and 99 others vs the fool’s gauntlet – and each other. Climb walls, swing across chasms, and screw over your comrades in a clumsy dash for the finish line and ultimate glory.
“You die, you lose, too slow? You lose. Another player knocks you off the tightrope? Too bad, game over.
“Victorious players share the 1,000,000 gold prize pool, so the fewer players that finish, the bigger their reward – but if nobody beats the gauntlet you all walk away empty handed. As players reach the final rounds, the gameplay shifts from teamwork to backstabbing as players whittle out the weak and assemble a skeleton team of the best performing players for the final challenge.”
Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout is available now for the PlayStation 4.
