Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout gets its first major update today, with the patch bringing a new level and a few balancing tweaks to the comedic, obstacle course battle royale. Update - the patch has now been delayed until tomorrow, August 13.
We’ve got the full Fall Guys patch notes below, but the biggest addition is the new Jump Showdown level. Listed as a “fan-favourite” in the beta, this level is the same general structure as Jump Club, but in this final, chunks of the circular floor will collapse after a brief period, leaving players isolated on islands. Whoever can jump over the rotating gold beams for the longest without dropping into the goop will score the crown.
