Developer Mediatonic has confirmed that Fall Guys Season 2 is now online and explained the different improvements made to the hit battle royale game in the update. The game became an instant hit earlier in the summer and has climbed the top charts of streaming services such as Twitch.
However, in the past weeks, it has gradually lost its spark to games such as Among Us as players transferred to other games for the experience. However, Fall Guys is still a popular title today and has retained a decent player base.
Players already had some kind of idea of what to expect from Fall Guys Season 2. The developers have been teasing the game’s new features in the update, such as the addition of Thicc Bonkus. This item is a big hammer similar to the Big Yeetus and acts as a large hazard that players have to dodge. The Knight Fever round had also been previously featured in a teaser trailer for season two, although it wasn’t explained in detail what the other rounds would include.

Fall Guys Season 2 has been officially released today and the development team has explained thoroughly what will be the improvements in the update. According to a statement from the studio, the new season will include four new Medieval rounds that will revolve with the other existing minigames which include Wall Guys, Egg Siege, Knight Fever as well as the team-based Hoopsie Legends.
Season 2 will also introduce new emotes and costumes while Mediatonic also added a new feature called Show Selector which allows players to pick from an array of themed playlists. The developers also announced that the old rounds have been upgraded with a slight visual change to freshen them up.
The release of Fall Guys Season 2 will also give players the chance to contend in a special tournament. In partnership with YouTube, the developers have organized a tournament that will benefit UNICEF with a donation worth $100,000 in favor of the winning team.
Players who aren’t interested in the Fall Guys tournament will still be able to get crowns since Mediatonic revealed that the in-game rewards will be easier to achieve compared to before. The only drawback is that the game still doesn’t support crossplay though the developers did say that they are now working on the feature.
Fall Guys’ second season has been highly anticipated for weeks now. While the main game has grown increasingly popular, players are starting to get tired of playing the same levels again and again. Now that Season 2 is here, players can now experience new game modes and updated old levels. Hopefully, the development team will keep giving out updates and new content so tired players will have reason to get back to the game.
