Fall Guys is Bringing Tournament Action to Twitch Rivals in August
It’s no big secret that Fall Guys is the hottest game on the market right now. It’s an adorable game filled with challenges, good fun, and a Yellow Team that nobody seems to like at all. Instead of dealing with tons of gun loadouts, grenades, and all of that tedious open-world nonsense, this Battle Royale has adorable bean characters, bright colors, and more challenges than your body has room for. There’s good news for the esports fans too! A Fall Guys tournament is on the way to Twitch Rivals, and it’s coming very soon.
August 28th: Battle of the Beans
The best part about this Fall Guys tournament on Twitch? It’s going to be a recurring event! It’s evidently going to feature “your favorite creators”, so that means we can expect Timethetatman to try to get more wins. However, curiously, Fall Guys does not have private matches. We can’t help but wonder if this means it will be open to as many people that can get into a match queue as possible!
But we do know for sure that on August 28th, at 1 PM PT, you can watch your favorite streamers climb, tumble and battle their way through the most intense Fall Guys action that can possibly be put together, only on Twitch. We wish we had more information on the format of this tournament though. We can likely expect Lirik, DrLupo, TimTheTatMan, and everyone else that is big in the Fall Guys scene right now.
Is this Twitch Rivals event going to be successful? Judging by it already being declared a recurring (likely weekly) event, you can believe it! Fall Guys in short order has already become the most-watched game on Twitch. It’s conquered League of Legends as the most-viewed. Right now, it’s got over 17.6 million players across the PS4 and Steam, and that’s in just a week or two!
It’s more than simply having “big streamers” playing it. Sure, Ninja, TimTheTatMan, and others have been playing it like crazy, but it’s more than that. The game is actually just fun to play and watch. It’s not something you just pick up and dominate – just ask Tim. Though he did finally get his first win, as of this writing! So congratulations to Timothy “TimTheTatman” Betar!
Viewership is Booming
Fall Guys is just genuine silly fun. It’s competitive, while also being charming and fun for all ages. It doesn’t alienate anyone with a super futuristic/military style. It appears very family-friendly, competitive, and again, it’s just fun! That’s what genuinely brings people around we think. The big-time streamers that are playing it seem to be honestly having fun, and not simply playing because they were paid to do so. Not to mention their huge Charity Event, which, at last check, G2 was in the lead with over 300,000 dollars. It seems like every time we write about it, the number just goes up, as you can see with this piece, just two days ago.
As of present, there is an average of 176,000 people watching Fall Guys streams right now on Twitch. That’s not counting Youtube, Facebook Gaming, Caffeine, or anywhere else you can stream. We just love to see this kind of positivity in the world of gaming right now. The Mediatonic team seem savvy, positive and have a killer Twitter game. They listen to their audience, and just dropped a sneaky little update, revealed on Twitter.
- Valve costumes will now be available in the store on PS4
- Max player count for Fall Mountain is now 15
- Team Tail Tag and Royal Fumble timer is now 1:30
- No more back to back team games
We’re just so glad to see this kind of thing right now. We can’t turn our heads without having to report on something negative or sad. So here’s something nice. Fall Guys is coming to Twitch Rivals on a recurring basis with some apparently hot tournament action. There’s no telling what we’ll see, but tune in to find out!
