Screenshots from the forthcoming Fall Guys update have been released. The update has been given a name too, Big Yeetus and Anti Cheatus, referring to the introduction of a new hammer called, you guessed it, Big Yeetus, a new feature that adds itself at random to various levels of the jelly bean battle-royale. The update will also focus on in-game cheaters, a common problem in Fall Guys.
The screenshots give us a visual taster of the update. Firstly, there are the swinging ball obstacles in Dizzy Heights, located at a particular section of the game that I find frustratingly tricky to overcome, and the introduction of giant watermelons, dubbed as “The Watermelon Crew,” friends of Big Yeetus’.
Here's some sneaky screenshots from the upcoming Fall Guys Update

At the end of August, Season 2 of Fall Guys premiered during Gamescom Opening Night. Cosmetics follow a fantasy theme, allowing the jelly beans to be dressed up as either a knight, witch, or a dragon. Because, why not?
Then we come to the modes, which also follow a medieval theme similar to the cosmetics. Footage from the showcase sees the jelly beans working together with building blocks to scale a castle wall. There’s also a drawbridge level that involves jumping through hoops.
Recently, Playstation announced via Twitter that Fall Guys had also become the biggest-selling PlayStation Plus title of all time, with the game’s Twitter account surpassing more than 1 million followers and high viewership on Twitch.
On Steam, Fall Guys have sold more than 7 million copies. Most impressively, at the time this announcement was made, Mediatonic’s summer smash had been out for less than a month.
