11 things you must know about the new Fall Guys season
The new Fall Guys season is launched and that always gets people very excited. Though it does not change the game completely, it’s definitely a breath of fresh air. Very fresh air, as season three is all about ice, snow, and other wintery themes.
The gameplay has not changed
Though there are new levels that do require you to think a bit differently, the gameplay of Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout has stayed the same. You still have to run to the end of the level together with 59 other people, and there are multiple rounds to determine who gets to win the beautiful crown. In its third season, Fall Guys is still all about that. Sometimes you’ll need to work together with your team, other times you only have to fend for yourself.
There are new looks to try out
With a new season there is always a new look. There is a Rudolph the rednosed reindeer, a candle, a yeti and a princess costume. There is a penguin look as well (pegwin), but with at least 40 new skins there is lots to play well for.
But that also means other looks disappear
The new season also means that you will have to start all over again and play the game enough -and well enough- to earn points for the new outfits. That means that you will no longer be able to collect things for the outfit from the last season. It’s so last season darling! However, that is part of the fun: in a year you will see people in Fall Guys wearing outfits that are very, very hard to get as they practically are vintage.
It will probably last two months
Looking at the history of this game, though it is very short, we can say that most of the time a season is on for approximately two months. We expect the wintery christmasfun to disappear again in February, so if you love the new costumes, you will definitely have to put in the work.
Millions of people will join you
Though Fall Guys has been a free game on PlayStation, it is not free at the moment. This game will cost you 20 pounds. However, you are guaranteed to have lots of players around you in the game, as the Steam version alone has sold ten million copies already. Especially now that the holidays are here, we expect even more people to buy the game and start playing.
Especially with the holidays coming up, Fall Guys will be played by even more people for longer periods of time.
Season three is also very popular on Twitch
In the first week of Fall Guys streamers were going ballistic: in only seven days time the content around Fall Guys on Twitch was viewed for 23 million hours. Everybody wanted to know what the fuss was about, how to best play the game and if it was worth buying. Every new season there are more streamers picking the game up again, so the hours viewed on Twitch will only get more. Everybody wants to know how to best play the new games within the new season.
There are new final levels
Fall Guys consists from many normal levels, and then there are those final battles that end with the crown. In the new season there is a new ‘boss’ level for you to battle others. The new final level will probably remind you a bit of Hex-a-Gone, where you have to walk on tiles that disappear as long as possible, before falling down on a new path of tiles. Thin Ice, the new final stage, changes things up a bit. You can stand on an icy tile three times before it breaks, and instead of falling down to the next layer: that was it. There is just one layer. You will have to slip and slide to make sure you are the last one to fall.
You can actually see your crown ranks
If you won a crown before, you would be ecstatic and get rewarded, but you could never really brag about it. Now there are crown ranks, which let you know how many times you have won the crown. Crown ranks can give you access to golden versions of costumes, plus new color combos and patterns. It is a great way of rewarding players that are good and offering players even more new content.
There are seven new stages
The new season comes with new ‘normal’ levels too. There are seven of them, like Tundra Run. Again it is all about getting to the finish line as soon as possible, but this time there are many wintery obstacles coming your way. Huge ice slides, chasing after penguins: it all happens in the new season.
One level is called Ski Fall
We love a good pun here at 1st11 and when we read that one of the levels is called Ski Fall, we could not help but crack up. Not just because we are British and this is an obvious homage to our favorite secret agent: James Bond. It is actually very accurate too: this level is all about snow, falling down, sliding down, and simply have the same feeling when you are learning how to ski. But as soon as you make it to the finish, you will want to do it again, just like after struggling on the slopes for a day.
Be prepared for the Ringus Dingus
It sounds like a nasty illness but believe us when we say: it is not an illness. It can be nasty though: one of the new final stages introduces it and it is a huge bell that will go from side to side to knock you out. The name of this crazy thing is chosen by the community. It may sound funny, it will definitely not make you laugh when you bump into it during that important race to the finish.
