After going free-to-play lower than every week in the past, Fall Guys is getting its first main update to repair a number of technical and visible points throughout all platforms. Developer Mediatonic issued the update early this morning, which corrects some evident points — together with that gamers utilizing the PlayStation 5 model weren’t capable of ship or obtain social gathering invitations from mates on different platforms like Xbox, PC, or Nintendo Switch. (Previously, they had been instructed to mitigate the difficulty by redownloading the PS4 model of Fall Guys.)
In addition to overcoming that hurdle — a big one for a recreation that’s finest performed with some bean buddies — the Nintendo Switch model’s update fixes buggy character animations. Now, different characters not appear to be stop-motion animations or dangerous GIFs eerily floating throughout the extent. Mediatonic has detailed all of the included fixes in a thread on its official Twitter web page.

Fall Guys’ change to a free-to-play mannequin is definitely respiratory new life into the sport. It grew to become the family-friendly darling of the pandemic when it was briefly free on PlayStation Plus, although over time its recognition and participant depend dwindled. Now, after being acquired by Epic Games and shifting to a free-to-play mannequin, the sport has reached a player count of 20 million in its first two days of the relaunch.
Longtime gamers — of which I’m one — might really feel like bugs and glitches are nothing new, although Mediatonic is enjoying catch-up in its first week on important ones. As somebody who has typically saved up with mates via the pandemic whereas in bean kind, I’m most relieved to see the visible fixes on the Switch. When I first booted up the hand held model over the weekend, it was jarring to see different characters barely animated. I do know Fall Guys often leans into the cringey vibes and meta silliness, however the joke will get outdated quick when it feels such as you’re enjoying a damaged recreation.
A free-to-play recreation has to behave shortly to repair such points or the viewers might shortly flip to extra dependable alternate options and overlook it. Now, if solely all of the leftover crowns had been transformed to far more helpful Show-Bucks foreign money as an alternative of the piddling Kudos rewards which are principally used on fundamental objects.
