Fall Guys Season 2 has been previewed at the Gamescom 2020 opening night and it’s got a cutesy new theme. That’s right, Fall Guys is going medieval in October!
Costumes include a knight, a wizard, a dragon, and a witch, and there will be new levels based around the same theme. These new levels include ramps, drawbridges, and new for season 2, blocks that you can grab and push around. One level will see you working with your fellow Fall Guys to move large blocks together to create steps up to the next part of the course.
Here’s a handful of images showing them off:
Her’s the PR blurb.
Revealed today at Gamescom Opening Night Live, Fall Guys Season 2 will bring the dragon fire with feudal fortresses, knockout knights and pugilistic paladins among new additions coming this October. A full season of new costumes, emotes and more will reward players as they lay siege to the Middle Ages.
Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout has become the most downloaded PlayStation Plus title ever. That’s no mean feat considering the high standard of games that have been on the service including Uncharted remasters, The Last of Us, and Star Wars Battlefront II.

Senior Analyst at Niko Partners, Daniel Ahmad, tweeted “Chinese games and entertainment company Bilibili has secured the rights to publish a mobile version of Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout in China.” The Bilibili website confirms the news and reveals a slight name change, in China it will be known as “Jelly Bean: Ultimate Knockout”, but it will only be available in that country.
Fall Guys has been an absolute sensation for the team at developer Mediatonic and publisher Devolver Digital, with the companies revealing that they’ve sold over 2 million copies on Steam in the game’s first week. That’s before you take into account however many people have been playing via PlayStation 4, where it’s free on PlayStation Plus in August. However, that has also led to some major server issues around launch, with an entire day being effectively wiped out on Friday, as they shored up the servers and added capacity ahead of the weekend. Thankfully things have been fairly steady since then.
We posted our Fall Guys review earlier this month, saying:
Full of cute and cuddly jelly beans bumbling into each other in a race for the crown, Fall Guys is just about the most wholesome battle royale imaginable, and a whole lot of fun.
Fall Guys is out now for PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam.
