— Fall Guys… FREE FOR ALL! 👑 (@FallGuysGame) June 25, 2022
Fall Guys originally released on PS4 and PC in 2020, with the game earning a Guinness World Record for becoming the most downloaded PlayStation Plus game of all time. The game then came to Xbox consoles and Nintendo Switch on June 21 coinciding with its release as a free-to-play title.
The title has since received a steady stream of updates and new content, including a huge variety of different crossover costumes, with the game currently being in its seventh season overall. Fall Guys has a Halo crossover event coming soon as well, which will last from June 30 to July 4. It includes a range of Halo-inspired costumes, including a Grunt, a Brute Chieftan, and Master Chief.
NME awarded Fall Guys a four-out-of-five-star rating, stating: “Fall Guys is a casual and chaotically original take on battle royale with roots that hark back to the fun, messy and harmless TV game shows of yesteryear. It’s as hilarious as it is maddening, and always a joy to keep going for another round.”
In other news, Riot Games will soon be recording Valorant voice chats to more strictly monitor in-game toxicity. A post on the Riot Games website reads: “As part of a larger effort to combat disruptive behaviour, Riot Games recently updated its Privacy Notice and Terms of Service to allow us to record and evaluate in-game voice communications when a report for that type of behaviour is submitted.”
