Fall Guys – Ver. ???

  • Release date: November 22nd 2022 (North America, Europe) / November 23rd 2022 (Japan)
  • Patch notes:

No patch notes available. This update brings the following:

  • Fixes the following issues:
    • Kraken Slam was missing a Gold Medal description on the loading screen on Let’s Get Kraken
    • Time Attack Shuffle was incorrectly awarding Bronze medals for first place.
  • Known issues:
  • Some players are finding that when they equip an emote & enter a game, the emote defaults to the previously equipped one. We’re fixing this for a future release! To work around this in the meantime, press the “equip” button on a different slot after equipping a new emote!
  • When playing a Time Attack Show, you can restart your attempt at any time! Some players may not see a key bound to it automatically. Check your key bindings in Settings -> Reset Run (Time Attack only)!
  • Nintendo Switch players may find that sometimes when they go to cross the finish line, something invisible blocks them. We are working on a fix for a future release, sorry about this and thank you for your patience!
  • Some players are finding that costumes are loading in with a delay when starting a Show! This is being worked on, but costumes should load fully once the Round starts and a little time has passed. We find it most in Rounds with more than 25 players.
  • Additional notes: none.

Fall Guys – Ver. ???

  • Release date: November 22nd 2022 (North America, Europe, Japan)
  • Patch notes:
NEW ROUNDS AND OBSTACLES!
Sunken Secrets features 5 brand new Rounds at launch, plus brand new obstacles and Round variations!     

  • Blastlantis: Blastlantis is built from the wrecked ruins of an old obstacle course. Beans will need their sea legs under them to stay afloat the tilting pathways while being pelted with Blast Balls.
  • Hoop Chute: Skifall successor Hoop Chute requires the ultimate belly flop to win! It’s a long flume ride where you Dive Slide down the slick path, weaving through hoops to pile up points. Golden hoops are worth triple!
  • Puzzle Path: Find yourself drawn to mazes? Puzzle Path has four labyrinths for you to navigate, one after the other. Follow the lines, avoid the other Beans, and make it over the finish line. But stay alert! The route isn’t ever the same!
  • Kraken Slam: Rickety rafts are all that keep you from the depths of the ocean in Kraken Slam. Tentacles rise from the depths to smash at you, while fellow contestants stomping across the rafts will cause holes to form underfoot, and allow more tentacles to rise. Avoid a calamari calamity to take the Crown.
  • Speed Slider: Get back on your belly in Speed Slider. Dive Slide down the Round, avoiding obstacles, and hoping to be the Bean with the speediest tummy.

  • Pixel Painters: Hop on tiles to spell out the correct patterns. You’ll need more than a basic horoscope understanding to get the best of this one!
  • Cosmic Highway: Players hop across rows of moving platforms. Get your space hopping one inch wrong and you’ll be saying a big hello to the void.
  • Hyperdrive Heroes: You gotta stay on your hoverboard and reach the finish without falling off. It just so happens that the hoverboard moves in a circular route. We like to keep you on your toes, don’t we?
