Who lives the longest?
In Fall Guys, 60 players fight to be the last left after a series of crazy challenges. For example, you have to go through obstacle courses, play football or collect eggs. Some of the challenges are team-based, while others are individual and the ones you get vary from time to time.
Fall Guys is available on PC and PlayStation 4 – for free if you have a PlayStation Plus subscription. Whether it will be for Xbox One or Nintendo Switch is not confirmed, but Mediatonic has indicated that launch on several platforms in the future.
