Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout, the battle royale game which saw a surge in popularity during the early days of the coronavirus pandemic, has actually entered the Guinness Book of World Records for being the most downloaded game on PlayStation Plus. There are plenty of titles that are offered via the PlayStation Plus and to become the most downloaded game is certainly a worthy enough achievement to be noticed. Now, in all fairness, we must say that being free-to-play may have tipped the scales in the game’s favour a little bit at least. Still, well done, Fall Guys.
As per a report by VG247, Fall Guys has earlier been nominated for five Golden Joystick awards, in five different categories at BAFTA Awards, won a trophy at The Game Awards 2020, and also bagged the best independent game and best multiplayer game awards at the PlayStation Blog Game of the Year awards.
Plenty of people play Fall Guys and an entry into the Guinness Book of World Records is the icing on the cake only. If you haven’t played it, let us tell you the basics of it. In the game, up to 60 contestants become part of a race in which they face numerous obstacles and challenges to be the last one standing. The game is developed by Mediatonic and published by Devolver Digital.
But, just as a reminder, the game may be free on PS Plus, but not if you purchase it separately, on any platform. It is at a 50% discount on Steam though right now, which brings its price down to Rs 264. The offer is valid till September 29, 2021.
