Fall Guys is Getting One More Beta Before Its Release
The upcoming battle royale game Fall Guys is coming back for another round of beta chaos before its debut on PS4 and PC next week.
Taking inspiration from Japanese gaming TV shows like Takeshi’s Castle, the upcoming battle royale title Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout has easily become one of the indie games to look out for this summer. The indie title, which pits 60 players in a series of wacky challenges and obstacle courses, had an incredibly successful beta last weekend that saw it rise to the top of Twitch and Steam’s top-sellers chart, and now those looking forward to playing more Fall Guys will get the chance this weekend.
Developer Mediatonic and publisher Devolver Digital have announced that another beta for Fall Guys will be taking place this weekend ahead of its official launch next week. According to a tweet from the game’s official Twitter account, the pre-launch beta will officially kickoff tomorrow, July 31 and is planned to run through this weekend before the game arrives on August 4 for PS4 and PC.

Based on the success of the beta last weekend, Fall Guys so far is building up a lot of momentum to be a big hit, and from what I played of the game at PAX East earlier this year, it’s an incredibly fun time to have with friends. Alongside the game’s debut on PC next week, it was also recently announced that the game will be free for PlayStation Plus subscribers in August for its PS4 launch. However, if you happened to pre-order the game on PC, you’ll get a nifty Gordon Freeman-themed skin for your adorable Fall Guy.
Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout will release for PS4 and PC on August 4, 2020.
