Battle royale games can sometimes hinder playing for casual games that don’t want to subject themselves to large-scale shootouts as seen in Fortnite and Call of Duty Warzone. To this end, some gamers might consider playing more casual games like Fall Guys, which will be our topic of discussion for today. Fall Guys was released in 2020 as a multiplayer battle royale game where each player controls a jelly bean with arms and legs (yeah) and competes in various obstacle courses, the last player standing wins. The game is free-to-play and took the world by storm when it was initially released, and in light of that, we’re going to present you with some Fall Guys statistics to see how the game has performed since it was released. Likewise, something to remember is that games like Fall Guys, even though they are free-to-play, directly contribute to how big the gaming industry is.
Fall Guys key stats
The game is extremely colorful, as is its history since 2020, which is why we’re going to take a look at how many people play the game as well as some revenue and news postings about how well the game was received and how it is performing today.
Fall Guys gained over 50 million players after going free-to-play.
The game went free-to-play on June 20th, 2022.
This decision was made after Mediatonic was acquired by Epic Games in 2021.
The game was delisted from Steam after the Epic Games shift.
As a result, the total concurrent player count on the Epic Games store doubled.
Would you look at that? Lifting the steep price tag of an addictive game leads to monumental increases in its total player count! Who knew? This happened two years after the game initially came out, but it was a welcome thing as Epic Games saw some excellent traffic on their platforms and recorded extremely high player counts.
24.77% of Fall Guys players are from the United States.
7.39% of players are from Brazil.
6.57% of players are from France.
6.50% of players are from the United Kingdom.
5.87% of players are from Germany.
This is no surprise as the game is primarily marketed toward Western audiences, but there is still some fairly strong popularity and appeal for the game all over the world. Something to note is that the main target demographic for the game is younger kids that enjoy the simple gameplay dynamic.
Fall Guys’ peak player count on Steam was 172,026.
The game’s average player count decreased by 97.6% from August 2020 to June 2023, from 124,000 players to 3,000 players, respectively.
Its peak daily player count at the time of writing is 5,000.
The average player count at the time of writing is 3,000.
This record was achieved in 2020, during the height of Fall Guys’ popularity, but it has also dipped down considerably as the game became popular because it was a good way for people to handle the Covid-19 pandemic, and as the lockdown was lifted, fewer and fewer player felt the need to play the game.
The Fall Guys esports scene has awarded $340,273 in tournament earnings.
The money was distributed across 7 tournaments.
The highest prize pool was awarded at the GlitchCon 2020 Super Team Showdown – Fall Guys tournament which totaled $83,273.
The rest of the tournaments had decreasing prize pools from $51,000 to $6,000.
The most successful Fall Guys player is thedragonfeeney, who has won $13,447 from Fall Guys tournaments.
Yes, Fall Guys does have a pro scene, or rather, had one. The tournaments for Fall Guys were fairly small and did not feature millions in prize pools like other games had, but they were still fairly lucrative for anyone looking to earn some money.
Fall Guys had 129.6 million hours watched on Twitch in 2022.
The game had 4.4 million broadcasting hours.
It had 14,805 viewers on average.
There were 510 channels streaming the game on average.
It had a viewer ratio of 29.
Its max viewer count was 417,781.
There were 1 million broadcasters that streamed the game.
And finally, we have some Twitch stats that paint Fall Guys in a fairly good light, as 130 million hours watched is a number that some of the biggest games out there can only dream of, and much of that is attributed to the massive replay value the game has, as no two matches are the same and, with the addition of friends to the mix, the banter is just off the charts.
To sum up
Okay, so that would be all of the information we’ve managed to stumble upon. As you can see, this game has gained amazing popularity in the gaming community, especially through Twitch, where a wide variety of fans enjoy watching the game, and even playing it occasionally. It even had an esports scene which has some traction, but not enough for it to remain relevant today. We sincerely hope that you have enjoyed the information we have presented here and that all of your questions have been answered!
