It’s actually type of stunning that it took till Fall Guys‘ fifth season to finally add content material from Ratchet & Clank. As a PlayStation 4 console unique, Fall Guys lends itself properly to crossovers with Sony’s hottest properties. And whereas they might have missed the arguably extra acceptable house/future themed Season 4 (which added Among Us characters to the sport), the enduring duo will likely be becoming a member of Fall Guys as unlockable outfits later this week.
The costumes would require some legwork to amass, nevertheless, as gamers should full a collection of challenges first. Plus, these will solely be obtainable for a restricted time and are cut up into two separate occasions. The first, the Ratchet Limited Time Event, requires gamers to acquire 3200 factors from challenges to unlock the complete Ratchet costume, plus some extra cosmetics. It will run from July twenty sixth to August 1st.
The second is the Clank Limited Time Event and, clearly, gives the Clank costume and different associated cosmetics. Just like the opposite one, gamers want 3200 factors to unlock all the things, and it runs from August sixth to August fifteenth. And if each occasions are accomplished, gamers may even be awarded a banner that includes Rivet from Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, who sadly does not have her personal Fall Guys outfit.
It makes quite a lot of sense so as to add the 2 to Fall Guys given their recognition, and Mediatonic’s lead artist, Rob Jackson, admits in a PlayStation Blog put up that, when selecting visitor characters, one of many defining elements is whether or not it might be actually cool or not. He additionally takes time to reward the Ratchet & Clank collection for its ambition and artwork course.
The two skins had really been leaked earlier within the month, and it is wanting very doubtless that they will not be the one PlayStation all-stars to be changed into beans. The identical leak included the likes of Sackboy from the LittleBigPlanet video games and a few characters from the upcoming Kena: Bridge of Spirits, together with the titular protagonist.
Mediatonic guarantees Season 5 will characteristic much more unlockable costumes and limited-time occasions, in addition to six new Rounds and a few fixes to make for a smoother expertise. As for the Xbox and Nintendo Switch releases of the sport, there’s, sadly, no replace on that entrance. They had been initially deliberate for a summer season launch, however Mediatonic was compelled to delay them. While it is unlucky that non-PS4 and PC homeowners should miss out on restricted content material, it is price remembering that skins just like the Ratchet and Clank ones would doubtless have by no means been made obtainable on the Xbox and Switch variations anyway.
Fall Guys is out there on PC and PlayStation 4.
