Fall Guys has now hit 20 million players.
The colourful battle royale hit has gone free to play on multiple storefronts and the game’s developer, Mediatonic, has confirmed the milestone, doing so just two days after the price tag was removed.
A tweet from the official account, as per Eurogamer, confirmed: “Massive thank you to all who have stumbled. We reached an incredible 20 million players in the first 48 hours of Free For All. See you this weekend my beans!”
Fall Guys first debuted on PS4 and Steam in 2020 but there is now the option of downloading the game for absolutely nothing and diving in.
Epic acquired Mediatonic last year, and that means that the game was removed from the Steam storefront; if you want to play the game on PC, you need to have an Epic Games account, although that is not the case on consoles.
Fall Guys, of course, places 100 players in a gameshow-esque situation in which their cute, wobbly characters attempt to race to the finish line, dodging a number of obstacles, and other players, along the way.
It received an 81 score on Metacritic when it first launched and it appears that players are now diving in to see what all the fuss is about.
Of course, that understandably led to some server issues over the weekend, as players struggled to find a match due to the servers buckling under the sheer weight of players in each lobby.
We have to imagine that Mediatonic will get that fixed soon enough, though, with the player count likely to dwindle somewhat over the next few weeks.
