The newest season of Fall Guys has started and more than just new costumes and stages has been added; it’s also introducing Squads mode. This is a new team-based option that will let even the poorest Fall Guys player stay in the game if their teammates can manage to keep it together.
Joe Walsh, the game’s lead designer, spoke to IGN about the new mode. He said that if one play is eliminated during a round, they’ll still be able to come back if their teammates perform well enough. It isn’t about who bites the bullet first, but who scores lowest as a team. A points system will determine who did the worst, but also make it so the best player doesn’t necessarily mean your team will be the best.
In this mode you’ll also be encouraged to sabotage other players, especially if you have more people left as you’re approaching the finish in a Final Round. For example, two players can sacrifice themselves to knockout the other team while the remaining player can land the victory.
Of course, Season 4 is going to have a bunch of new costumes, including crossover themed costumes with hit game Among Us. The game should continue to get support, since Mediatonic was just recently purchased by Epic Games. Fall Guys will be available for Xbox and Nintendo Switch this summer.
