After going free-to-play less than a week earlier, Fall Guys is getting its very first significant upgrade to repair numerous technical and visual concerns throughout all platforms. Designer Mediatonic released the upgrade early today, which fixes some glaring problems– consisting of that gamers utilizing the PlayStation 5 variation were unable to send out or get celebration welcomes from good friends on other platforms like Xbox, PC, or Nintendo Switch. (Previously, they were informed to reduce the concern by redownloading the PS4 variation of Fall Guys.)
In addition to getting rid of that difficulty– a substantial one for a video game that’s finest had fun with some bean pals– the Nintendo Switch variation’s upgrade repairs buggy character animations. Now, other characters no longer appear like stop-motion animations or bad GIFs strangely drifting throughout the level.

Fall Guys’ modification to a free-to-play design is definitely reviving the video game. It ended up being the family-friendly beloved of the pandemic when it was briefly complimentary on PlayStation Plus, however with time its appeal and gamer count decreased. Now, after being obtained by Epic Games and moving to a free-to-play design, the video game has actually reached a gamer count of 20 million in its very first 2 days of the relaunch.
Longtime gamers– of which I am one– might seem like bugs and problems are absolutely nothing brand-new, though Mediatonic is playing catch-up in its very first week on vital ones. As somebody who has actually frequently stayed up to date with good friends through the pandemic while in bean kind, I’m most relieved to see the visual repairs on the Switch. When I initially booted the portable variation over the weekend, it was disconcerting to see other characters hardly animated. I understand Fall Guys periodically leans into the cringey vibes and meta silliness, however the joke gets old quickly when it seems like you’re playing a damaged video game.
A free-to-play video game needs to act rapidly to repair such problems or the audience might rapidly rely on more reputable options and forget it. Now, if just all the remaining crowns were transformed to a lot more helpful Show-Bucks currency rather of the piddling Kudos benefits that are primarily utilized on standard products.
