More than a month since first releasing on the PC and PlayStation 4, developers Mediatonic launched their first mid-season patch for their obstacle course battle royale game Fall Guys. Summarising the content of this update with the phrase “Big hammers, smoother stumbles and more bean mayhem“, players should boot up the game expecting new challenges, increased randomless to progression through the levels, improved performance and first attempts at stopping naughty cheaters.
Details on new content introduced in the mid-season update can be found below:
Reduction in cheaters – Expect what you would expect!
From today, Mediatonic has implemented Epic’s Easy Anti-Cheat into the game, which they hope will prevent players from using tools that hook into the game to apply hacks which give unfair advantages. According to Mediatonic, “Easy Anti-Cheat is used by the best in the business and will mean our jelly beans receive the very best protection from the bad eggs seeking to exploit them.”
Round variations – expect the unexpected!
Players will quickly realise that all is not what it seems in The Blunderdome. Familiar favourites will have to be tackled in all new ways, with the addition of dozens of obstacles, dizzyingly random rotations and of course, plenty of tumbling fruit. And what’s more, players will have no idea when these changes will occur—no bean’s dignity shall be spared!
Better, faster, smoother, stumbles
The Mediatonic team has implemented hot-fixes and tweaks to improve the Fall Guys experience. Players can expect changes to enhance server stability, nifty VFX improvements and a whole lot more to make Fall Guys just that little bit smoother.
The Big Yeetus Hammer
There is now a mysterious large and rather aggressive hammer obstacle roaming the rounds, apparently intent on causing mayhem.. or perhaps giving a random advantage… for any Fall Guy which crosses its path. Details are currently sparse, but the name of this is… Big Yeetus.
