Get a Look at Fall Guys: Season 2 at Gamescom Opening Night Live
Fall Guys joins Geoff Keighley for some Gamescom Opening Night Live fun on Thursday, August 27. Check it out for a "sneak peek" at season two.
Fall Guys has quickly taken the world by storm since releasing a few weeks ago. And, while we’re still in the thick of the season one battle pass, it’s about time to start talking about what comes next. Today, Hideo Kojima’s best friend Geoff Keighley announced that developer Mediatonic is joining him on the Gamescom Opening Night Live “stage” for a sneak peek. Will it just be a new string of cosmetics? Or will Mediatonic do something massive for their second season? We’ll find out soon.
Fall Guys is great and all….but what if I told you there is @FallGuysGame: Season 2! 👑 😮🤯

Personally, I don’t see how this can just be a simple new battle pass. Unless Keighley and his team are scraping the barrel for things to show, a new set of cosmetics would be a weird thing to reveal at what should be a major event. Sure, Fall Guys is a behemoth right now with tons of people playing, but if you’re just going to show me some new duds I dress my jelly bean up in, I’m going to be disappointed.
More likely, I’d guess they’ll announce some new levels along with the battle pass. Mediatonic has already given us Jump Showdown. You know they have several more exciting options on the table. The dream is that they announce split-screen multi-player is coming, but that’s probably still a way out. If it’s even being worked on.
Regardless, Fall Guys is definitely having “a moment” right now. It’s the hottest property in gaming and Mediatonic needs to keep feeding that hype machine with new content. Otherwise, they risk losing a big chunk of their user base just a few months in.
Fall Guys is available now PC and PS4. Gamescom Opening Night Live kicks off on August 27 at 2 pm ET.
