Fall Guys became free to play last week, alongside its release on Nintendo Switch and Xbox platforms, and it certainly seems to have done it some good. The transition hasn’t been without its wrinkles — an influx of new players put an undeniable strain on the servers, leaving some players waiting out some bugs and errors — but the results, as they say, speak for themselves.
Within two days of going free to play, the official Fall Guys Twitter account announced that the game had hit an impressive 20 million players. It’ll be interesting to see how many of those players end up choosing to spend money on the game in the long run, but it’s nevertheless quite the milestone, and no doubt makes the hard work that the devs are putting into keeping the game updated and secure worth it. Indeed, a new patch for Fall Guys hit today, with a host of bug fixes and improvements.
Among the most notable things in today’s update was a fix to an issue PS5 players were having which saw them unable to join games whilst in a Party. Another noteworthy fix came to the Voice Chat function, which had previously seen some issues with some players unable to hear each other. There are several more minor but appreciated improvements covered in the full patch notes shared on Twitter, which can be found below the announcement tweet.
