Fall Guys Is Giving Out a Costume and Currency Due to Earlier Server Issues

As promised, the team behind Fall Guys at Mediatonic is making up for its launch period server woes by giving out some free stuff to all players who log in soon.

Anyone who logs into the game before midnight tonight - presumably UK time, like the studio - will instantly unlock the Legendary tier two-piece "Prickles costume" including a cactus top and potted plant bottom. Those same players will also earn 5,000 Kudos, the in-game currency which is both earned and available for purchase.

Mediatonic made the announcement on Twitter.

While we were fighting to keep the servers up and running last week, we promised we'd figure out a way to compensate the community for being so awesome and bearing with us! We're pleased to announce we're gifting you all this Legendary Prickles costume and 5,000 kudos!

Keep in mind you'll want to log in today to earn these free gifts or else lose out on them forever. 

The server woes derived from the game's enormous success when it launched on August 4 for Steam and PS4. It is one of two featured PlayStation Plus games for the month of August, and like Rocket League, seems to have benefitted greatly from this promotion. A massive influx of players swarmed the lovable social battle royale game show and led to recurrent server crashes as players struggled to get into games. It even led to the team taking the game offline multiple times while they tried to fortify their systems for the next rush that surely awaited them.

These days, over a week since launch, the game is much more stable, though occassionally players will still get kicked from matchmaking, but not habitually.
