What PlayStation Plus games has Fall Guys beaten?
This news comes via a tweet posted on the official PlayStation Twitter account. In the tweet, Sony congratulates developer Mediatonic on having the most-downloaded PlayStation Plus game of all time on a global basis. The news is accompanied by a GIF of one of Fall Guys' characters performing a victory dance. No doubt Mediatonic will be overjoyed by their game's achievement on Sony's platform.

Since its release earlier this month, Fall Guys has been a media sensation. The game managed to hit 1.5 million players in its first 24 hours and sold 2 million copies on Steam within its first week of release. Despite early issues pertaining to server capacity, it looks like Mediatonic has a genuine, bona fide hit on its hands. The PlayStation Plus feat is even more impressive when considering that many PS Plus titles are triple-A monsters, so a humble, colorful battle royale indie like Fall Guys beating them to the top spot is a remarkable achievement indeed. Mediatonic says it had "no idea just how big the game would be".
