Disney's The Jungle Book is coming to Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout

During the Gamescom: Opening Night Live event, it was announced that Fall Guys and Disney's The Jungle Book will be having a crossover event soon (via Polygon). A number of skins from the classic movie will be introduced to Fall Guys, including costumes for Mowgli, Shere Khan, Baloo, and King Louie. Like all other bean costumes, the skins being featured in this event will have two pieces. The tops will feature full versions of the character's heads. The costumes will be available in early September. 

It was also announced that there will be an in-game event focusing on King Louie. The event will take place from September 3rd through 12th. Not much was revealed about the event, including whether or not it will include new rounds or maps. Developer Mediatonic did reveal that the skins from The Jungle Book will have different points of availability, which they will reveal soon. 

Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout's fifth Season began last month. Season Five features a jungle theme. The Season introduced six new rounds to the title, which included Lily Leapers, which has players bounce across a field of lily pads to get to the goal, as well as a final round called Lost Temple, which has an ever-changing path to victory. There were over 20 new costumes added, including costumes of hippos, pirates, elephants, and divers. Also introduced were five new obstacles for gamers to avoid. There are now Squads in the form of Duos and Trios, as well as a number of bug fixes and improvements. 

Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout is available now for PC and PlayStation 4. The game is currently on the way for Xbox and the Nintendo Switch, which will introduce crossplay between all platforms when they release.
