Fall Guys Space-Themed Season Two Coming This Week
New challenges, stages, and cosmic cosmetics galore
Alongside a new trailer, developer MediaTonic revealed that the second season of Fall Guys’ free-to-play era is releasing imminently. On September 15, 2022, Fall Guys Season 2: Satellite Scramble is dropping on all platforms, and it will, as you may expect, send the lovable little beans out to space. The trailer itself is only cinematic, but it’s a fun little short of the challengers struggling to manage a space station. Much more information was relayed, however, via a blog post on the game’s official website.
Of course, Satellite Scramble will bring new challenges, new stages, and new cosmetics. Also, space-themed variations will be coming to already existing stages, as is commonplace for new seasons.
A new Fall Mountain-style final round called Tiptoe Finale will be added, in which players have to race to the floating crown with the first one to reach it being the one who wins the entire match. The difference here is that players will be divided into four groups, and they have to run through four different pathways to reach the center. The blog states that “one wrong step could send you tumbling to the cosmos,” and the image clearly shows a grid-like bridge with missing tiles, meaning the stage will function like the classic Tip Toe round that has been in the game since it launched.
A stage called Starchart will have players walk through invisible paths that can only be seen temporarily by pressing buttons on central platforms. Pixel Painters brings forth a pretty novel concept; players will have to walk across a board of unlit tiles and light the correct ones in order to match specific patterns that will show up on a screen up above. Hex-A-Terrestrial looks to be a space-themed variation of Hex-A-Gone. However, it’s unclear exactly how it’s different. All that’s stated is that players “have to navigate floating platforms without a single mistake.” Frantic Factory is described as the free-for-all cousin of 1v1 Button Bashers, where, as simple as it sounds, you bash buttons to get points.
Finally, the blog reveals some of the costumes that will be available via this season’s paid Battle Pass. It will have over 100 levels of costumes, emotes, and celebrations that buyers can earn as they progress. Among the more standard astronaut and alien-themed costumes, you’ll see below that the developer was also able to close some brand deals, and will have the likes of the Xenomorph from Alien, Spock from Star Trek, and Hatsune Miko.
