Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout is a platformer battle royale game developed by Mediatonic and published by Devolver Digital. It released for Microsoft Windows and PlayStation 4 on 4 August 2020. The game draws inspiration from game shows like Takeshi's Castle, It's a Knockout and Wipeout, and children's playground games like tag and British bulldog. Fall Guys received positive reviews from critics, who praised its chaotic gameplay and visual appearance
Up to 60 players compete in matches with battle royale-style gameplay.Players, represented as jellybean-like figures, move around a three-dimensional playing field, with additional moves such as jumping, grabbing/climbing, or diving to assist gameplay. The aim is to qualify for subsequent rounds by successfully completing each of the randomly selected mini-games. Certain mini-games involve running towards a finish line at the end of the map, while others add elements of teamwork.On every mini-game, obstacles appear around the map for added complexity.Players who are too slow or who fail certain requirements for a mini-game are eliminated. On the final round, the remaining few players compete in a final match with a randomised mini-game designed for a smaller player size. The winner of the match is the last player standing.
Using an in-game currency, "Kudos", players can purchase cosmetics and emotes for their character to show off in-game. Players obtain Kudos by completing matches and get "Crowns" (the premium currency) by winning. Some of the costumes are of characters from different games, such as Gordon Freeman from the Half-Life series or Jacket from Hotline Miami. The game supports microtransactions for the purchase of additional in-game currency.
The conception of Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout began when Mediatonic was discussing another project in January 2018. One member, lead designer Joe Walsh, made a throwaway comment that it reminded him of game shows such as Takeshi's Castle and Total Wipeout.He drew from that inspiration to create a pitch document for what would become Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout. Originally titled Fools' Gauntlet, Walsh's pitch featured 100 players competing in a battle royale composed of physical challenges. Creative director Jeff Tanton, while initially skeptical that creating another battle royale game would be successful, was quickly convinced of the game's potential, and forwarded Walsh's pitch to Mediatonic's founders.
Tanton and Walsh then began working on a pitch deck for the game. For the pitch deck, principal concept artist Dan Hoang created images featuring colorful, bean-shaped characters racing on an obstacle course in the sky. Tanton explained that Hoang's character designs helped shift the focus of the game away from the obstacle course itself, to the characters. With the pitch deck completed, Tanton pitched the game to 10 different publishers at the 2018 Game Developers Conference. After Devolver Digital agreed to publish the game, development began six months later.

Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout was announced at E3 in June 2019and was released on 4 August 2020 for Microsoft Windows and PlayStation 4.Prior to release, it was announced that Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout would be free for PlayStation Plus members during the rest of August.
Fall guys season 2 is coming out soon, fall guys season 1 contained certain gamemodes, while fall guys season 2 is supposed to have different fall guys maps, so good luck to them.

    • @C_TDD what no he didn’t. His title is based on what most of the community thinks. If you still play Fall Guys, then you cannot attack someone for a misinforming title because it is sadly what the analytical prove.

  • The only things that ever make games endlessly replayable are 1. Original design capability and 2. Multiplayer. Minecraft was a great example of the former-you can make anything, you can show off what you made, so you can play forever. Fall guys was technically multiplayer, but not really. You can’t really chat with random people you meet in game, and you can’t have too much cooperative play with friends you bring in either. And that’s the difference between it and MOBA, FPS, and other Battle Royale games. It’s too fast paced, people are focusing on winning the game, not shit talking the other players or simping for a girl or having your team rejoice in a pog moment. Communication generates endless content, and without it this game was exactly as replayable as its mini games-not very much. And sadly, they didn’t have time to make more. Fall guys reached the peak of its genre’s capacity.

Hopefully the airship map will revive the game, but it will also bring back the 8 year olds who say "SUS" at anything that has a slight connection to Among Us. Great game, ruined by idiots.

  • It didn’t die. It declined in popularity but that doesn’t mean its dead. Google trends doesn’t tell you the player count of a game, only how many search it up on specifically Google. Among us becoming popular took the spotlight but DIDNT kill fall guys. The community is active and the game has tens of thousands of players still. The discord server is full of active members and games fill really quickly. Please stop spreading misinformation saying how the game ‘died.’

    • Because it launched with over 20 levels which were 3d, requiring a lot of time to model. There was also a ton of cosmetics and the in game currency was easy to get so micro transactions probably weren’t their main income source. The season pass was also free and have cosmetics every single level.

  • Na its not about the cheating or anything. It was never like a good game. Not a game where you have real achievements. Its not like overwatch or league, where you can climb your ranks, or learn a new character. Or even like fortnite or pubg where you actually vs people in both the 100 player battle royal but also in smaller 1v1 within that 100 players. It was just hyped up because all the famous people played it andif you didnt play it you were weird.

    • @C_TDD Ummmmm im sorry to hear that. Not really cuz im not gonna do some research on games and waste my life lol. I mean i have friends who i play the gmae with therefore first hand experience. And ummmm i dont know where that among us argument came out. Please read through my comment again I never talked about among us that was the guy doing the youtube video. I NEVER COMPARED TO AMONG US I KNOW U CANT 1v1 in AMONG US LOL READ PROPERLY. And also I never said there were no achievements at all lol. You really have no social life if you couldnt understand that as well. I SAID "there arent any real ones". Thats a figure of speech saying that all those achievments are shit. And there are 30 achievements which is really little compared to any other mainstream game they arent that rewarding cuz they are only a limited amount of achievements. Like the achievments only require you to move sideways and jump lol. Like just stop it with your petty arguement man. if it really was that good like other mainstream online games it wouldnt have died out in such a short time. Plz try out other games with friends and then you migh understnad.

      William JoWilliam Jo12 päivää sitten
    • First of all, the game has over 30 achievements to unlock. Second of all, this season they added crown ranks which lets you level it up with the more crowns and wins you have. Third, in the final rounds you can versus people in much smaller groups and eventually 1v1. Also, I don’t see you using this logic against among us. That game has no leaderboards or progression, it barely has any achievements and has no unlockable characters and the game only got played because of STREAMERS. And, in among us you can’t ‘1v1’ people. Please, do some actual research and cut the hypocrisy
