Barely two months after the release of Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout, its developers, Mediatonic, have rather swiftly released the Season 2 update for this colorful battle royale title.
As previously mentioned by the developers before the release of Season 2, Fall Guys has many new features to offer. Apart from the addition of fantasy-themed cosmetics and games, the Fall Guys Season 2 update comes with the 60 fps option for players on the PS4.
In Season 2, four new mini-games have been introduced, all of which give a very medieval-themed feel. One such level has the players finding their way towards the end goal in a well-designed, castle-themed arena.
The developers in the official blog stated:
"We are absolutely delighted to invite you to Fall Guys Season 2, starting... right now!"
"Our brightest minds in the field of jelly bean research have been hard at work to bring you four fresh Rounds, oodles of on-trend costumes and a whole heap of community-focused changes for optimal stumbling fun (with even more to come!)"
"So, get ready to stumble across the drawbridge into a feudal fortress full of medieval mayhem."
What are the new rounds added to Fall Guys?
Off the four new rounds added into the game, the first one, Knight Fever, was described by the developers as:
"Knight Fever delivers our most treacherous race to date, pitching brave participants against a wild array of medieval obstacles. This hectic dash to the finish line is full of fiendish contraptions, including the fearsome THICC BONKUS and its insatiable appetite for destruction!"
The next round is known as Wall Guys, and according to the developers, it is something like this:
"Wall Guys introduces our all-new movable block mechanic, tasking intrepid beans with scaling a formidable fortress. Short-term alliances with fellow players are crucial, as you rack and stack your way to progress. Join the scrum, clamber over competitors or even forge your own path... if you dare."
Next comes Egg Siege, and well, the name says it all:
"Egg Siege celebrates the beloved Fall Guys trope of stealing and hoarding opponents' eggs with a fresh tactical edge. Thrown into a mystical castle chock full of moving machinery, your bean dexterity will have to be at its sharpest to shake off pursuers in this arena of ramps, drawbridges and diabolical scythes!"
Last but not least, the Hoopsie Legends round is described as:
"Hoopsie Legends invites (nay, demands) you to lob your Fall Guy through precarious hoops to nab points with zero concern for their safety. Movable blocks bring this solo re-imagining of Hoopsie Daisy squealing into the Medieval era! Will you join the stacking and share the points or deviously disrupt your fellow beans' hard work? How about both?!"
What is the new "Show Selector" in Fall Guys?
According to Mediatonic, the "Show Selector" option is a new addition that will allow players to choose from their favorite rounds. The developers say:
"Our brand new Show Selector lets you pick from a lovingly curated playlist of Fall Guys' Shows'. Fancy kicking back with races-only after a long day? Jump into the Gauntlet Showdown! Survival Rounds tickling your fancy on a Tuesday morning? All good, we've got you. Plus, you'll be seeing some extra spicy limited-time events throughout the Season, so keep an eye out!"
New costumes in Fall Guys? Yay!
Most of the fans waiting for new looks for their characters are in for a treat, as Fall Guys Season 2 comes with many new costumes and cosmetics.
The official blog of Mediatonic reads:
"Immerse yourself in the Medieval splendor of the new-look Blunderdome with lots and lots of fabulous outfits for the most discerning of beans. Pugilistic Paladins, the feistiest of Dwarves and even a smattering of vivacious Vikings join the fray, with many, many more to come, including exclusive collaborations!"
What else is new in Fall Guys Season 2?
Apart from all the changes mentioned above, there have also been a few other fixes and new additions. These include:
- Fall together now - "No more falling alone! Our new 'party falling' means that when you queue with your squad, you fall with your squad. Look at you all go, woosh!"
- Nameplates and Banners - "Add to your personal swag with customizable signage to wow other beans, all viewable in Spectator mode."
- Random Outfit Generator - "Find yourself bewildered by the bean looks on offer? Not to worry, you can now randomize your costume and accessories in one click!"
- Visual upgrades - "You all really went to town on the original levels, so we've given Season 1 rounds a well-deserved lick of paint, including nifty new tile effects."
- Additional controller options for PS4 - "You can now tweak your sensitivity to get your tumbles perfectly on-point, as well as optional X/Y axis inversion."
These are the new changes that were introduced in Fall Guys Season 2, as the developers have already said that more rounds and changes are soon going to make their way into the game.
