A large amount of cheaters have been banned from Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout

On the Fall Guys Twitter account, it was revealed that there has been a large drop in cheaters. It was also revealed that players no longer have to individually report cheaters, as the game's developer has been tuning their detection criteria.

"It's no longer necessary to report individual cheaters, since we've been tuning our detection criteria we've noticed a large drop in cheaters - getting better!" stated that announcement tweet. 

"A huge thank you to everyone who has been playing the game fairly, you're all awesome, and we love you!"

Yesterday it was announced that Fall Guys had reached a number of achievements on PC in the week that the game has been out. The game has reached over two million copies sold since it was released last week. Over 23 million hours of the title was watched on Twitch, and over 1.5 million crowns have been grabbed. Finally, it was revealed that over 60 million Fall Guys have fallen. 

Fall Guys is a battle royale style game where up to 100 players compete to be the last one standing. Players run through a number of mini games as players are consistently dropped from the match. Gamers try to out do each other in a number of challenges and obstacle courses in order to get to the next round. The game shifts from free-for-all courses to cooperative challenges where only the top teams get to advance. The game features a number of customization options, helping players make a Fall Guy that stands out from the crowd. Players are able to dress their little Fall Guys up as pirates, dinosaurs, hot dogs, and much more. 

Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout is available for PC and PlayStation 4. The game is currently free this month for PS Plus subscribers.
