The popular online party game Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout (Fall Guys) has been updated to v.1.06.
As the name "Hot Fix" implies, the main focus is on fixing and tweaking the game, but it also includes a new option for Japan that allows you to change the jump button from a circle to an X, as well as improvements in playability, such as reversing the axis of the stick and adjusting sensitivity (PS4).
The main updates are as follows.
Tweaked round selection algorithms to select a team game only if the team sizes can be equal
[PS4 Only] Added controller options, including Invert X/Y axis and sensitivity settings
Slime Climb: players can no longer grab some of the moving obstacles
Jump Showdown: changed geometry to prevent a gameplay exploit
Jump Showdown: fixed camera auto-panning
Improved in-game store purchase dialog to avoid accidental selections
Addressed the top 5 most frequent crashes
Visual fixes to some of the outfits
[PS4 Only] Improved UI performance on non-Pro PS4 models
Added option to change the Jump button binding for Japan
Trophy/Achievement names and descriptions are now correctly displayed in all supported languages
Removed move speed nerf from Yellow Team (Don't post this one)
There's also an eye-opening horror at the end, but this is one that pokes fun at the unreasonably yellow team that continues on Fall Guys' social media and elsewhere.
Dealing with cheaters is a top priority for us
At the moment, when a cheater is detected, they are able to finish the current show before being blocked
We are going to start taking more immediate action soon
As mentioned before: It isn't necessary to manually report cheaters
As for the anti-cheating measures, which are at the top of players' complaints, they cite that it is being addressed as a top priority apart from this update, and that they are currently blocking cheetahs from completing a single game when they are detected, but that they will soon start taking more immediate action. As mentioned before, they also said that it isn't necessary to manually report cheaters IDs.
In terms of major updates for Fall Guys, the upcoming Season 2 will be first revealed at the opening of Gamescom, an online gaming event that will be available on August 27.
