OverviewOverview

Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout is a whacky obstacle race where up to 60 people compete to get to the end of the course and advance to the next round. Drawing on TV shows like Takeshi's Castle, Wipeout or It's a Knock Out you have to control top-heavy characters to overcome challenges and various obstacles without failing to grab the only crown and become the winner.

Battle bizarre obstacles, barge past unruly competitors, and overcome the unbending laws of physics as you stumble towards greatness. Some levels are basic races, while others have a specific challenge like having to steal another player's tail so you have one when the timer runs out. At the end you take on a race up the mountain to decide the final winner.

Leave your dignity at the door and prepare for hilarious failure in your quest to claim the crown. We will report back with news on Fall Guys Ultimate Knockout coming to Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
