Fall Guys Season 2 Is Live
It's time for Fall Guys to get epic as Season 2 has arrived.
Update: Fall Guys Season 2 has arrived. The news was shared on the game's official Twitter page. The start of the season was teased prior to its actual launch.
New content in the season includes four new medieval-themed rounds, a full new season pass with more character costumes and emotes, and a Show Selecter that lets you play in limited-time events. You'll also see cosmetic changes to existing games, and they have a new playlist that removes team games if you prefer to only play solo games.
Original story follows ...
Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout Season 2 was shown off recently, and now we know when to expect it to begin. The studio has announced that Fall Guys Season 2 starts later today, October 8. In the meantime, you can score some extra points.
Developer Mediatonic announced the news in a tweet, which tied the upcoming season to Halloween with mention of a curse. The theme of the season isn't explicitly around the spooky holiday, though. As previously announced, it is themed around "epic quests." That means a giant castle setting and costumes like a dragon, knight, Viking, wizard, and witch costumes.
Mediatonic is currently working on a login bug, but it is currently updating the game with a fix. Players have been fibbing about being able to get into Season 2, but it has not begun yet. Those who try to access it early may see the "login failed" message.

Meanwhile, YouTube Gaming has announced that it will host a Fall Guys Season 2 charity event with a $100,000 prize going to United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF). That will begin at 11 AM PT on Friday, October 9. The company said it will debut the new content like new costumes, emotes, and levels. It will be livestreamed on the official Fall Guys channel and feature streamers like AyChristine, CouRage, ItsFunneh, JeromeASF, Jazzyguns, KreekCraft, and Logdotzip.
During his appearance at Gamescom, Fall Guys lead designer Joe Walsh thanked fans for the game's success and promised much more content in the works following season 2. A mobile version of Fall Guys is in the works in China, but other than that we haven't heard word of it coming to other platforms.
