Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout Developer Tease Future Content in AMA
Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout developer Mediatonic answer questions on future content and how it became a PS+ title in new AMA.
During a Reddit AMA, Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout developer Mediatonic answered fan questions on how the game became a PlayStation Plus title, if it’ll come to the PS5, and about future content. For those that don’t know, Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout is a multiplayer battle royale game where 60 players face off in wacky mini-games against each other.
Several fan questions were related to future content coming to the game. “We literally have huge spreadsheets full of level ideas that we love but haven’t had the time to implement due to a pretty short dev cycle,” said user ScrambledMeg, a lead level designer. “There will be variations of existing game modes as well as brand new levels with new mechanics. These will drop with the season content or on the off occasion might get dropped whenever we can get it in.”
Other questions asked about topics like if there will be a split-screen mode, if there will be a creator mode, and if there will be exclusive PlayStation 4 skins. For all three questions, the answer is either these are things in development but won’t be available at launch or aren’t confirmed. With such a quick development cycle and small team, it’s understandable why these features among other things aren’t ready yet.
One user asked if the game will come to the PlayStation 5 and the developer said they can’t confirm anything on that yet. Another user asked about how many people have worked on Fall Guys and the developer said 45 people have been on the game during its two years of development.
When asked how the game became an August PlayStation Plus title, user FallGuysJoe, lead game designer on Fall Guys, said “Sony were really enthusiastic about the game when we showed them an early version of it, and we felt that taking this route would help expose the game to a far larger audience than we could have reached on our own. Also, it’s something that worked super well for Rocket League which has been one of our inspirations.”
Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout is available on PlayStation 4 and PC on August 4. It’ll be an August PlayStation Plus title alongside Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. The game is having a beta this weekend as well.
