What Is Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout All About?

Mediatonic, a British video game developer with Epic Games as a parent company, started releasing games in 2009, but really only took off with the release of Fall Guys in 2020. This was quickly followed by a massive popularity boost when Epic Games acquired Tonic Games Group, the company that owns Mediatonic. Fall Guys is now available to play for free on Windows PCs, PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch consoles with full cross-platform support!

How to Play

You'll start each round in a brightly colored map as a customizable bean character, where you're pitted against other players in an elimination-style set of arenas. Whether it's winning races, competing in teams, lasting in survival rounds, or fighting it out in sudden death, your goal in Fall Guys is to be the last bean standing. Doing so will earn you crowns to show off your wins.

Fall Guys has a few rotating game modes, which feature team games, private lobbies, solo knockouts, and fun limited-time themed game modes that rotate within every season! At the time of writing, there have been 2 seasons each featuring amazing battle passes with awesome skins, items, and XP boosts!

You might be dodging giant fruits and swinging hammers or trying to stay afloat on layers of disappearing platforms. There will be slippery pink goo to maneuver over and giant spinning fans threatening to yeet you across the map and back to the start. With all this considered, it's almost guaranteed you will be kept on your toes every round.
