Fall Guys To Offer In-Game Reward As Apology For Server Issues

Mediatonic to thank players for their understanding with a currently unknown in-game item.

If you’ve not heard of Fall Guys yet you’ve definitely been living under a rock. The game has become an absolute phenomenon on Twitter with players sharing hilarious videos, creating their own skins for the “Beans” and watching on in the hope that Mediatonic manages to pull off some awesome collaborations.

It’s not only Twitter where Fall Guys has been a success either. The game smashed 1.5 million players within the first 24 hours and has already clocked up 2 million sales on Steam, despite being free this month on Playstation Plus.

The huge number of players hasn’t come without issues however. On launch day the servers struggled so much that some players decided to review bomb the game on Steam, despite calls from the developers requesting they don’t. Since then, the game has been down for server maintenance on a regular basis.

Despite this however, and ignoring the minority who decided to review bomb the game, fans have been very understanding, an act that hasn’t gone unnoticed by the developers. In a post on Steam, they said:

“As an apology to you all, and a thank you for bearing with us, we’d like to give you an in-game reward. We’re still working out what this will be exactly, and the technical side of gifting it to you all, but we’ll have more details on that soon.”

A nice gesture from Mediatonic for those who have been supporting the game over the past week. It will be interesting to see what they decide to dish out.

Fall Guys is likely a game that’s going to rely heavily on cosmetic items, with some awesome collaborations already out and some fun items that have already hit the in-game store. Players who pre-ordered the game on Steam received a Gordon Freeman outfit from Valve’s Half-Life Series and since then there’s been another crossover with Half-Life, this time Alyx, and Hotline Miami.

Fall Guys is out now on both PC and PS4 and you can read our review of the game right now.
