Fall Guys season 2 release date finally announced
Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout season 2 is all set to release next week on 8 October 2020. The new season will be free-to-play for anyone that owns the game.
Fans have been waiting in anticipation since the announcement of a new Fall Guys season was made back in August during the Gamescon 2020.
Fall Guys is a platformer battle royale game developed by Mediatonic and published by Devolver Digital. The game was first released for PC and PS4 on 4th August 2020. Since then, it has sold over 7 million units and boasts a 9/10 rating on steam.
The new Fall Guys season features a medieval theme
A sneak peek video was released which gave us glimpse of what Season 2 has in store for us. It includes new costumes, medieval style rounds, and movable platforms. Players will be dressing their Fall Guy in knights, dragons, princesses, and witch costumes to compete on new rounds inspired by quests from the middle ages. It is likely that more items will be unlocked as the player advances through the levels.
Medieval style rounds
Joe Walsh, the lead game designer for Fall Guys: Ultimate knockout has confirmed that the new battle pass will revolve around a medieval theme. The new rounds will feature drawbridges, swinging axes, and movable items which will help them to qualify for the next round.
New Customization options
Extra customisation options are being added for Fall Guys Season 2, under a new 'Interface' section. Players can add banners around their name with an Icon and a matching background along with nicknames like "Cool Bean", "Big Yeeted", and "Sir Hugs A Lot".
According to the announcement, Fall Guys' season 1 will end as the new second season begins. To help players get to level 40 of the first Battle Pass, Double Fame is being offered for a limited period of time.
