With bouncy and colorful 6-foot-tall characters, Wipeout-style levels, and a crown for a prize, what is there not to like about the hit battle royale game Fall Guys?
What is the release date for Season 4 in Fall Guys, and what can we expect from it?
When is Season 4 of 'Fall Guys' coming out?
Fall Guys' developers officially announced that Season 4 will launch on March 22. This is a little behind the original schedule that had been set for the new season, but the teaser trailer showcases new maps, futuristic costumes, and even a long-awaited crossover.
Season 3 originally dropped Dec. 15, 2020, featuring a winter wonderland theme. Since the new season dropped so close to the holidays, the new content featured icy maps, winter outfits, and cool-toned terrain.
In between these two seasons, Mediatonic also released a Season 3.5 update, titled "Stop with the yeets name it anything else just don't include the word yeet please I'm begging you." This update, which hit the title around late January, featured one new level, more than 40 variations for the already existing levels, a DLC pack, and crossover costumes (including an adorable Untitled Goose Game outfit).
Season 4 of 'Fall Guys' is set to have a futuristic theme.
On Feb. 23, the official Fall Guys Twitter account announced that the new season will feature a futuristic theme, dubbed "Fall Guys 4041."
The trailer showcased some of the new costumes that will be available in this upcoming season, including a rocket ship, an alien in a tutu, a space pigeon, and more. The developers also confirmed there will be a Robo Frog costume, at the request of a fan.
The long-awaited Among Us crossover was also teased in the trailer, meaning it's likely there will be some imposter-themed costumes and events coming up in the near future.
On Twitter, the developers also shared the season's first new outfit, a vibrant green space alien in a flying saucer. According to IGN, players can receive the top piece after reaching level 39, and the bottom can be earned once reaching level 42.
This will also be the first season with 50 levels of prizes to earn, as the previous seasons have capped at level 40.
While it might be some time before we see more of this new season, the developers have been busy bringing new costumes to the game in the meantime. Cuphead and Mugman outfits recently launched in the game's shop as part of a crossover with Cuphead.
Developers also announced that the game would finally be coming to new platforms, specifically the Nintendo Switch and both the Xbox One and Xbox Series X / S. Both Nintendo and Microsoft revealed Fall Guys would be hitting their consoles within days of each other. The game is currently slated for a summer 2021 release for both.
Mediatonic CEO Dave Bailey told GameSpot he feels they've "just scratched the surface" with what they can do for the game.
"When you think about it in that way, there's a million different ways we can take this and I hope people will see that come through in future," he told the outlet.
