Battle royale party game Fall Guys hit 1.5 million players during its first 24 hours of release. Developer Mediatonic says it's now working on the first patch for Fall Guys, which will take into account "feedback and ideas" from the community.

What happened at Fall Guys' launch?

Demand for Fall Guys appears to have far outstripped the developer's expectations. Yesterday, when the game's servers opened, they were immediately inundated with over 120,000 players, which caused them to crash. Since then, Mediatonic has been working on getting the servers online and stable. Fall Guys was subsequently review-bombed over the lack of server availability. Following this, the game was then "positive-bombed" back up to a Mostly Positive rating. 

A few hours ago, the official Fall Guys Twitter page tweeted that "nobody woke me up, @FallGuysOwl hasn't tweeted", and Twitter mentions were low. It seems the servers have finally stabilized, which is good news for anyone wanting to check the game out. The PlayStation 4 version had account creation disabled temporarily yesterday,  while the team worked out some of the server kinks, though it should be back online now. As it stands, though, both the PC version and PS4 version seem to be fully playable now.

Fall Guys is currently available to buy on PC via Steam and on PlayStation 4. If you're a PlayStation Plus subscriber, you can currently download and play Fall Guys at no additional cost. We don't yet know when the first patch for the game will actually launch, or what it will contain when it does. All we know is that Mediatonic is currently working on the patch. If you're looking to keep up with Fall Guys' slightly volatile state, you can do so via the game's official Twitter page. You can also keep an eye on the Fall Guys Server Owl, the account which monitors the server status for the game. We'll keep you updated on Fall Guys' status and will have more for you soon.

Dark Souls changed my life, and I'm here to spread the good news. I like pretty much all sorts of games, but I judge everything by its proximity to our Lord and saviour, Dark Souls.
