Revealed at Gamescom 2021’s Opening Night Live, Mediatonic’s Fall Guys now has a Jungle Book themed limited event, running from September 3 to September 12. The event will include King Louie challenges, in which players can earn rewards such as nicknames, costumes, and nameplates.
The costume drop dates vary, with the Mowgli costume available until September 6, the Shere Khan costume available between September 7 and 9, the Baloo costume available from September 10 to 12, and the King Louie costume up for grabs during the King Louie Timed Event across the whole period.
With special jungle challenges to complete, players will be given points to spend in the points shop on exclusive cosmetic rewards.
Fall Guys recently reinstituted the “No Teams” playlist for people who prefer to play alone, due to popular demand. The news was announced via Twitter with the Fall Guys account explaining that “there has been unprecedented complaints regarding levels in which you compete as part of a unit”.
There had been many reports that some players just want to mess around rather than play the game ‘properly’ leading to issues, so players can now choose to go solo, no longer being reliant on teamwork skills.
