I assume that you must have experienced some of the best battle royale games (subjective though) available out there.
Fortnite? PUBG? Apex Legends?
Well, there’s just a whole bunch of them if you want to pick a battle royale game.
But, what if you want a battle royale game without any shooting (combat) at all? No weapons? No killing?
“Fall Guys” is just the game you should be on the lookout for – if you’re tired of battle royale shooters. Developed by Mediatonic with Devolver Digital as the publisher, this is a unique take on Battle Royale genre.

E3 2019 Trailer
Fall Guys was revealed at E3 2019. However, it didn’t grab our attention then – and I missed it too.
However, the recent post by gameindustry.biz made me curious – where they talk about the game with Jeff Tanton (Creative director, Mediatonic)
You should really check out their article if you want to read about the lengthy conversation.
Or, just continue reading this article to know about it in brief.
“Fall Guys” – What’s New?
If you haven’t watched the trailer yet – you must be thinking what different could it be from other battle royale games. So, I insist you to watch that first.
Now, considering that you’ve watched the trailer, you must have realized that it is a battle royale game which looks incredibly fun and competitive as well.
The core idea was not to make another generic battle royale shooter game. So, they came up with an idea which involved no combat – but meant to be competitive.
Joe Walsh (Senior game designer, Mediatonic) mentioned to gameindustry.biz:
There will always be shooters and we’re not looking
to replacethose, by any means, but there is a huge group of people who wanta competitive spirit but without having to master dual-analog twitchgameplay. Those games are difficult and challenging, and a lot of timeyou leave them as a new player feeling like you’re missing out on something.
There will be a single winner in the end. But, it’ll involve knocking out a bunch of players at once indirectly through a series of mini-games inside it.
Fall Guys Will Be Available On PS4 & PC in 2020
You can already find it listed on Steam for PC and it will also be available for PS4. Pre-orders haven’t started yet.
