After a rocky start, the very successful “Fall Guys” has announced it’s first big update. This Thursday, the game’s official Twitter account posted a chain of tweets with fixes and balance improvements to the game.
Aside from the more technical side of things, the game is also bringing a “new” level to the roster. I say “new” because those of us who have already played the game’s beta are old friends (or enemies) with this level.
In “Jump Showdown”, players will play a hardcore version of “Jump Club”, where spinning pillars try to knock you out of a platform. To survive you must jump or duck under the pillars. The twist for “Jump Showdown” is that sections of the platform fall as the level progresses, leaving you with little to no room for maneuvering around the pillars.
You can check “Jump Showdown” playing out in their tweet below.
🚨 We're about to drop a new level into rotation!!! 🚨

Here’s Fall Guys announced patch-notes:
- Fixed crash at launch with certain regional calendars set in the operating system;
- Lowered the weighting for Royal Fumble to add more final round variation;
- Fixed physics behaving erratically at high framerate on levels like Tip Toe;
- Improved messaging for matchmaking and server errors;
- Fixed crown in Fall Mountain not being grabbable in rare situations Addressed some collisions in Block Party allowing players to bypass the blocks;
- Fixed Parties sometimes failing due to too many requests;
- Addressed some special characters causing display issues in player names;
- Fixed Big Tease Achievement not unlocking in specific regions;
- PC only – Fixed certain game controller models not being detected on PC.
These patches are great and all, but we do wonder when will the cheaters stop annoying us players so much. As of right now there are a lot of reports of speed and obstacle hackers in-game, so we can only hope for Devolver Digital’s retaliation to be swift and true so that we can (try to) get our crowns in peace!
Tell us, what is your take on cheater’s omnipresence on multiplayer games nowadays?
