Fall Guys update 1.12 stumbles out ahead of Season 3

As we wait for news on Fall Guys Season 3, game developers Mediatonic have released a new update for their hugely popular battle royale beanfest.

Fall Guys update 1.12 is available to download now on PlayStation 4 and PC (as well as PS5, via backwards compatibility). You’ll need to have this latest patch installed in order to hop online and join matches.

Sadly, this new version of the game doesn’t seem to bring on any notable features or fixes. Mediatonic have yet to post their Fall Guys 1.12 patch notes and you won’t find a changelog via the PS4 system menu.

Hopefully we’ll get the lowdown on exactly what’s been added to Fall Guys but for now we’d assume it’s just some simple fixes around the edges to help with stability and performance.

Of course, 1.12 is a stepping stone for what comes next. Fall Guys Season 3 is on the way and, after decrypting Mediatonic’s jigsaw puzzle teaser for their upcoming season, it looks like we’ll be taking a walk (well, more of a tumble) through a winter wonderland.

In the meantime Fall Guys Season 2 is slowly ticking down as players continue to enjoyed its newly added clutch of medieval-themed game modes. It appears as though we’ll get a proper look at the next season at The Game Awards. Hopefully we may hear more about whether Fall Guys will be coming to other platforms too including Nintendo Switch and Xbox One. A next-gen upgrade for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S seems unnecessary but could be on the cards.

Fall Guys didn’t quite manage to grab our top prize but walked away with an excellent 8 our of 10 in Stefan’s review. Here’s how he summed up his time with the game:

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 was made available for free on PlayStation Plus back in August and quickly became it’s most-downloaded complimentary game.
