Free-to-play Update Boosts Fall Guys to Top 10 Game in Live Streaming

Fall Guys has hit a resurgence in live streaming last week with the release of the free-to-play version, amassing over 11.7M Hours watched across the major streaming platforms. The game climbed to the top 10 games in live streaming and was the most streamed platformer this week. 

 The colorful battle royale platformer has recently released a new update that allows free-to-play access; Playstation, Xbox, Switch, and Epic Games Store cross-play; and more game modes to compete in. Developed by Mediatonic, Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout is their creative twist on the battle royale genre. You compete with up to 60 participants in five mini-game courses. At the end of each course players are eliminated, until only the victor is left standing.

The game was initially released in August 2020 and quickly became popular among streamers. Fall Guys arrived with an experience filled with vibrant colors, quirky game modes and mechanics, while also being fun to play with and compete with your friends. And the game is now back in the spotlight with their new update.
