Latest Fall Guys Update Eliminates Back-to-Back Team Games
Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout is trucking along and its latest update brings some much-requested features. As announced via the game’s official Twitter page, the new update will introduce Valve costumes on PS4, Fall Mountain will now have a max player count of 15, the timer for Team Tail Tag has been changed to 1:30, and no more back-to-back team games (hallelujah!).
Players have expressed their concerns with team games, as they’re often left up to chance and/or the skills of your teammates, making it harder to stay in the game. Thanks to the new update, that will no longer be an issue.
We just stealthily made a few changes to the game 👀

Demon’s Souls Remake Rated in Korea, Leading Fans to Think It’s Coming Soon
While this might not mean much, the PS5 remake of Demon’s Souls has been rated in Korea, leading many to think it’s a lot closer than we had initially thought. When it was revealed a couple months ago, Sony had yet to reveal its release date. It still doesn’t have one — but we’re keeping our fingers crossed for it to be a launch title for the PS5.
Typically, when a game is rated, it means it’s not far off so this could be good news for Demon’s Souls fans (or masochists, in general).
