What to Expect from Fall Guys: Free For All Season 1?
Fall Guys is set to kick off Season 1 with the major “Free for all” update to welcome all the new players coming into the Blunderdome. The new season will begin the grand celebration with new levels, costumes, and ever-evolving gameplay.
There’s a new in-game addition called Blass Balls which is a funny yet perfect mode for creating clips worth highlighting. It’ll make the players showcase clever yet strategic play while staying within the original core of the game.
There’s also another new round called Hex-a-Ring. It’s simply a version of Hex-a-Gone that is played on a rotating tube. The players have to keep moving through layers of tiles while not falling off the rotating floor and not falling down into the slime.
Players will also be getting a Season Pass starting with the incredible first season. Players can purchase it using Show-Bucks, the new in-game currency. The Season Pass will allow players to earn new costumes and unlock other stuff.
There will be 100 levels in the Fall Guys Season 1 Season Pass. Players can unlock a number of rewards by completing the levels and they’ll unlock the Season Pass for next season on maxing the current one.
