Fall Guys is the Biggest Launch Ever for Devolver Digital and Topped 100k Players on Steam
The success of Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout doesn't look like it is going to slow down anytime soon as it sets new launch records for Devolver Digital.
When I first saw Fall Guys last year at E3, I thought it was going to be a smash hit. When I went hands-on with it at E3 last year, I knew it was going to be a smash hit. Looks like my thoughts were right.
The statistics have already doubled the previous biggest launch for Devolver Digital. Before, SCUM was the biggest performing title for the publisher and saw a peak of 68k players on Steam in September of 2018.
The Fall Guys twitter account revealed the other day that the game has already totaled more the 1.5 million players. With the game being a free game on PS Plus, I am sure that number will continue to grow, especially when word continues to spread about how great it is.
I think it is safe to say that this game will continue to be a success. The simplicity of the game is wonderful for people who want something to quickly pick up and play. However, the game surely rewards players who have practiced and know what they are doing. The constant change-up between obstacle courses, memory games, and team-based challenges make sure that every time someone is playing it is a different experience than the last. On top of that, the game is just flat out pure joy to play. There are no complicated systems to understand, just run, jump, grab, and dive.
Fall Guys is currently available on PC and PS4. If you are a PlayStation Plus member, make sure to snag it soon because it is one of the free games of the month. Make sure to check out DualShockers’ official review of the game as well.
