Fall Guys has seen 20 million players jump into the wacky battle royale party game since re-launching as a free-to-play title, according to developer Mediatonic.
Developer Mediatonic announced the player milestone via Twitter, thanking players for stumbling into the free-for-all after its transition to a F2P title.
MASSIVE THANK YOU TO ALL WHO HAVE STUMBLEDWe reached an incredible 20 million players in the first 48 hours of Free For All! ??...see you this weekend my beans! pic.twitter.com/uCUN8Kx5wt— Fall Guys... FREE FOR ALL! ?? (@FallGuysGame) June 25, 2022
The wacky battle royale took the internet by storm during the height of the pandemic in 2020, launching on Steam and PlayStation 4 and seeing record numbers of viewers and players in that time period. Since then, Mediatonic was bought by Epic Games and has since seen the title launch on multiple platforms, including the Nintendo Switch and Xbox. However, since being nabbed by Epic Games, we've seen the battle royale removed from Steam, emerging on the Epic Games Store.
Fall Guys sees players take the role of "beans," seeing players compete in challenges and difficult stages, all bent on being the last bean standing in the end. It seems that the free-to-play move was a success, despite some server issues, with players on all platforms flocking to jump into the arena.
