Fall Guys Rise Up
Not too long ago, Fall Guys went free to play, with crossplay enabled. This came at an apparent cost of the game’s Steam platform, as the transition also marked a shift to the Epic Games Store. Obviously the $0.00 entry fee was going to boost population numbers somewhat, but clearly the developers at Mediatonic didn’t realize what they’d just unleashed. The game’s servers took a huge hit, with some players unable to join games. It’s an issue they’ve since resolved, and now that the fresh beans are flooding in, we can finally see how successful the move was.
Fall Guys has surpassed 20 million players.
MASSIVE THANK YOU TO ALL WHO HAVE STUMBLED
We reached an incredible 20 million players in the first 48 hours of Free For All! 🙌

If existing metrics are anything to go by, then this 20-million figure likely isn’t a concurrent number. While the tweet is a bit vague, it almost certainly refers to the total number of unique players who’ve given the game a shot. But still, that’s not a small feat. It’s almost double the population of Sweden – impressive numbers for the funny bean game.
Recently, Fall Guys released a set of crossover skins with Halo Infinite, parodying a famous nostalgic trailer. It seems like the game is still very interested in the kind of crossover promotion that brands got into twitter fights over, back when Fall Guys first released. And if these numbers keep up, we might just see a return to form.
