‘Fall Guys’ level creation tools arrive on May 10th

“Fall Guys Creative launches on May 10th and is part of Season 4 of the viral multiplayer title. The level editor lets you create legitimate multiplayer courses (called Rounds) using a wide variety of iconic items, enemies and obstacles. Developer Mediatonic encourages players to use the tools to “finally design the Round of your dreams”.”

This is such a cool idea from Fall Guys and a feature they should’ve added a long time ago! We’re so excited to give the creative mode a shot!

One of the leaders of the pack is TMNT Splintered Fate, a co-op roguelike adventure starring the turtles. The crew is searching for Splinter, and will journey around New York City looking for clues while also picking up randomized power-ups. Triband, the studio behind What the Golf? and What the Bat?, is also here with What the Car? It’s a fittingly quirky take on motor vehicles, the kind that Triband has been especially good at over its other games.”
