Seems hard to believe, but Fall Guys (opens in new tab) has been out for less than a month. Not only has it taken Twitch by storm and sold millions of copies on Steam (opens in new tab), it's already making the jump from adorable party game to the esports scene. Fall Guys is holding its very first competitive tournament today. 

80 streamers have been invited, and among the competitors you can expect to see Shroud, Summit1g, Lirik, DrLupo, TimtheTatman, and lots of others. These streamers will be grouped into 20 teams of four players, and they'll compete in 10 games of Fall Guys for the tournament, with a $50,000 prize going to the winning team.

Points will be awarded for each team member that finishes a round, with the points increasing in each round. You can check out the scoring and rules below.

Following a few years as a regular freelancer, PC Gamer hired him in 2014, probably so he'd stop emailing them asking for more work. Chris has a love-hate relationship with survival games and an unhealthy fascination with the inner lives of NPCs. He's also a fan of offbeat simulation games, mods, and ignoring storylines in RPGs so he can make up his own.
