The Season 4 release date is live on PS5, PS4 and PC, which means new game modes, new gameplay features and a whole host of bug fixes and tweaks.
According to the Fall Guys Season 4 patch notes, headline new features include the Basketfall game mode, which sees teams attempt to dunk as many balls as possible.
That’s on top of other new modes like the team-based Big Shots and Power Trip, the latter of which involves grabbing batteries and painting floors.
New Gauntlet levels – which are usually the best – include Skyline Stumble, Short Circuit, Hoverboard Heroes and Roll On.
In addition to new levels and modes, Mediatonic is also adding all-new team-based round types.
Squad Race tasks players with scoring points for your team by crossing the finish line. The team with the lowest point tally is eliminated.
Then there’s Squad Survival, which is all about staying out of the slime for as long as possible.
Finally, long-time fans will be pleased to hear that daily challenges have been added to the game. The daily challenges will give players the chance to earn rewards such as crown shards.
