Fall Guys Players Will Get Free In-Game Reward As A Thanks From Dev
Mediatonic is promising a a free reward for all players as the game continues to hit sales milestones.
It's just shy of a week since Fall Guys launched across PC and PS4, but the Devolver Digital-published battle royale has already hit some significant milestones. As a thanks to so many of its players, developer Mediatonic is planning to give away a special cosmetic item soon.
In a post on the game's Steam page, Mediatonic thanks the millions of players that have purchased the game already, celebrating 2 million customers on Steam alone. As a thanks for the support, and an apology for server connection errors that has persisted since launch, an in-game reward is being decided on for all players to claim for free soon. It's not clear from the post if this will be offered to PS4 players too, who can still get the game as part of August's PS Plus offerings.
The post also confirms that Mediatonic isalready working on new game modes to add to the pool of 25 already in the game, as well as new features that are only vaguely teased. The developer also reaffirms that work is continuing with server stability and capacity, as some players are still experiencing some connectivity issues. The game was review bombed at launch for this but has since recovered on Steam to a "Mostly Positive" status.
Fall Guys is a fun and approachable spin on battle royales, with easy-to-understand gameplay and whimsical mini-games to battle in. In GameSpot's 7/10 Fall Guys review, the game was praised for its sheer fun factor. "It can be disheartening to have a game end prematurely due to uneven team matches and, worse still, when you're forced into one of Fall Guys' unsatisfying finale modes," the review reads. "But neither are enough to derail the fun Fall Guys consistently generates, with its chaotic obstacle courses and earworm soundtrack ensuring you'll be coming back for more."
