Fall Guys (opens in new tab), the popular multiplayer videogame featuring guys (or beans?) who fall, kicks off its Season 3 proceedings tomorrow in the form of Winter Knockout. It'll bring some substantial new features to the game, not least seven new levels, which will no doubt have their fair share of slippery ice. It'll bring Ringus Dingus (opens in new tab) too, who looks unpleasant in a cute way.
In a tweet thread for the patch notes, publisher Devolver Digital listed each of the new levels. I'll post all that below, but generally you should expect some nice twists on some of the formulas already established. My favourite is 'Pegwin Pursuit', which is all about chasing a pewgin and keeping it as your team's score racks up.
Crown Ranks will be introduced: the crowns you obtain will now go towards a ranking, with various "exclusive rewards" unlocked along the way. Graphics are improved in some areas, and there's a Private Streamer Lobby that's accessible by invitation only, which is in Early Access.
Here are all the notes:
Tundra Run: Dodge snowballs, punchers and flippers in a mad dash to the finish line!
Freezy Peak: Use blizzard fans and flippers to ascend the peak in the most epic race Round yet!
Ski Fall: Traverse a giant ice slide and dive through bronze, silver and gold rings to score points and qualify!
Pegwin Pursuit: Chase down and keep hold of the Pegwin to score points for your team!
Snowy Scrap: Roll your team’s Snowball over snow patches to make it larger! Last team to hit 100% are eliminated!
Thin Ice: A spiritual successor to Hex-a-gone where players must traverse layers of breakable ice to avoid falling into the slime. Last bean remaining wins!
Roll Off: A Final round variant of Roll Out with added rising slime to make things interesting. Get grabbing!
Crown Ranks! Now the crowns you’ve won will help you climb through the ranks and unlock exclusive rewards.
