Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout has taken the gaming world by storm, so it was only a matter of time before it would enter the realm of competitive eSports. Now, thanks to a popular Twitch Channel, Fall Guys will get it's first taste in the competitive realm.
It was announced today on twitter that Twitch Channel TwitchRivals will begin broadcasting what they call Fall Guys Fridays, a weekly event where popular Twitch Streamers will compete against each other in rounds of Fall Guys. The winner of these events, of course, win a coveted crown in Fall Guys, but also tons of bragging rights on stream as they play against the best of the best as they jump, grab, dive and duck their way through the competition.
The only details revealed about the new Fall Guys Fridays is that the first competition will take place on August 28th, at 1 PM PT (4 PM EST), and that TwitchRivals is teaming up with Fall Guys publisher Devolver with the promotion.
Devolver has been busy with tons of cross-promotion and charity events with Fall Guys in the past few weeks. This is including their own products; such as the rogue-like game Okhlos, which was released in 2016. The game now features a brand new edition to the roster of Fall Guy characters helping the player defeat tons of pixelated enemies, in a not-so-subtle cross-promotion between Devolver products.
Fall Guys has also begun to trend on social media in unique ways. Popular Twitch Streamer Tim "TimTheTatman" Bater, who has been struggling to get a win in Fall Guys since the game was released, succeeded in doing so today. This led to an outpouring of support for Bater, with the likes of ESPN capturing the moment on twitter for all to see, and seeing the phrase "HE FINALLY DID IT" trending with over 10,000 tweets in an hour.
Developer of Fall Guys, Mediatonic, will also be involved in the promotion, as they have tweeted from their official Fall Guys twitter account their own excitement on the upcoming Friday matchups.
TwitchRivals will announce more information regarding their events soon.
