When will future Fall Guys updates arrive?

We're not sure exactly when more updates for Fall Guys will arrive, but, if you're after all the latest Fall Guys news, then we suggest following the official Fall Guys Twitter account.

Since Mediatonic has already posted one set of patch notes there, it's safe to assume that we can expect to see future patch notes posted on the same account.

What we do know, however, is that Mediatonic has promised to continue adding new levels, game modes, features and costumes.

In the same tweet from the official Fall Guys Twitter page, Mediatonic also said that the game's roadmap will be influenced by player feedback, so, if you have a Fall Guys idea, then its a good idea to share it.

Good luck playing Fall Guys!
