UPDATE 7/1/21: Fall Guys has fully now revealed its long-teased Doom crossover, in a new trailer showing off Doom Guy and a couple of other familiar faces. The skins will become available next week, on Tuesday 12th January.
Here's a look at the lot in action:
ORIGINAL STORY 3/12/20: Lovable bean battle royale Fall Guys will soon play host to the guy from Doom.
The Fall Guys' Twitter account last night tweeted a familiar-looking silhouette and the words "...time to suit up" - a phrase then echoed by a reply from the official Doom account. Ahh, brandter.
There's no word yet on when exactly this marriage of marketing will take place, but Fall Guys' second season is currently due to finish next week.
Fall Guys is, of course, still to launch on Xbox - the platform owned by the company soon to also own Doom and everything else id/Bethesda/Zenimax-related. Exactly when the game will arrive elsewhere is yet to be announced.

Fall Guys' excellent Twitter account has already been busy teasing what's next, including a clockwork penguin to chase and... a giant swinging bell. Huh.
Yesterday was busy with word of battle royale crossovers. Not content with launching a new season featuring The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda, a fresh Fortnite leak spilled the news that Sony's own Kratos would also soon join the fight there.
