ORIGINAL STORY 2.30pm UK: Colourful bean battle royale Fall Guys is doing very well, but you probably knew that already.
Today, PlayStation trumpeted the news Fall Guys is now the most-downloaded PlayStation Plus game of all time, on a global basis.
That is some feat, considering the service has been handing out "free" games now for the better part of a decade, and that its offerings have previously included Grand Theft Auto-sized blockbuster fare.
Fall Guys is also available on Steam, where it shifted 2m copies in a week, and has become a hit on streaming platforms too. The game has already seen various tie-ins, such as with Portal 2 and Team Fortress 2, and has a mobile version on the way in China.
Earlier today, developer Mediatonic discussed how it was starting to tackle cheaters.
