Fall Guys update brings round variations and more

Mediatonic has dubbed the Fall Guys mid-season update ‘Big Yeetus & Anti-Cheatus’. The update has hit the live servers, and Mediatonic has provided a sneak peek into what to expect on the PlayStation Blog.

This latest patch spices up the level randomization in Fall Guys. Players will encounter remixed levels with several new obstacles, dizzyingly random rotations, and plenty of tumbling fruit. And the best part is players will have no idea when these changes will occur in-game.

Reliable door patterns on Gate Crash may end up all kinds of wavey. Turntables could turn the tide in an unpredictable take on Fall Ball. And just when you thought you’d got a handle on the topsy-turvy See-Saw?

“We’ll just say that your approach may need to be tweaked! Remember the turnstiles you had to jostle and bump your way through in Hit Parade. Well, things may take a turn for the precarious with a nest chock-full of mini Whirlygig spinning clubs.”

Apart from random level variations, the update has also added the Big Yeetus hammer obstacle, which could turn out to be a friend or a foe. According to Mediatonic, this hammer is supposed to bring future physics wildness to Fall Guys.

The blog post provides a sneak-peek into what players can expect as the developers want to surprise the community. Players will have to jump into the colorful wilderness to find out all the details for themselves.
