Gamers all around the world are witnessing the fact that game developers are serious about bringing popular PC/Console games to mobile devices. Smartphones are currently the easiest accessible gaming platform in the world and as a result, mobile gaming is growing at a rapid rate. Developers and publishers who primarily released games for consoles and PCs are also making mobile games. Many are even bringing their existing console/PC titles to mobile. A multiplayer video game titled Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout was released recently for PC and PlayStation 4, which quickly drew in the attention of the mainstream gaming audience. A lot of people have been asking whether it is coming to mobile devices. While some content creators have confirmed its existence, Fall Guys developer Mediatonic confirmed that there is no mobile version of the game as of now.
About Fall Guys
Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout was released very recently, on August 4, 2020. The game was developed by Mediatonic and published by Devolver Digital. As of now, it is available for PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Windows. Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout is a multiplayer battle royale game.
Unlike typical battle-royale games where players eliminate each other by shooting or using various weapons/equipment, Fall Guys uses a rather unconventional method for choosing the victors. The game consists of several levels consisting of mini-games, chosen at random. These mini-games generally involve races with platforming elements and obstacle courses. Players pass the mini-games by either remaining alive until a certain condition is met, or must race towards a finish line/checkpoint which works in such a way that once a specific number of players reach it, the remaining players are eliminated. The mini-games, however, are not strictly limited to such types of levels as the game features other mini-games too.
There is no mobile version of Fall Guys as of now
Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout quickly rose to popularity, even as early as it’s first day. The sudden unexpected influx of players even resulted in a server outage of the game. Since the game was only released for PS4 and PC, fans have been asking questions about a mobile version of Fall Guys. Some content creators on YouTube claimed to have found a mobile version of Fall Guys. Some of them apparently played the game on mobile as seen in their videos.
Mediatonic debunked all claims in a recent tweet made from the official Twitter page of Fall Guys. The tweet directly called out all such videos as scams and mentioned that any such video is nothing but someone pretending to play the game on mobile while running a video of Fall Guys on the screen. The tweet also pointed out that we can easily spot the hoax by looking at the cursor on the gameplay video.
Will there ever be a mobile version?
As of right now, there is absolutely no official information as to whether Mediatonic is planning to make a mobile version of Fall Guys. They did, however, have previously mentioned in an earlier tweet and FAQ that they are enthusiastic about bringing the game to more platforms.
You might want to take this with a grain of salt because “more platforms” may mean Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, or even Stadia. All we can do now is wait for Mediatonic or Devolver Digital to bring forth any news about a mobile version for Fall Guys. If they announce anything, we’ll, of course, let you know. So, stay tuned!
