    The developers have been preparing for a long time for this move to free-to-play. In fact, they were working on a whole list of different bug fixes for Fall Guys so that the experience would be more enjoyable. The following are some of the fixes they’ve included:

    • Major optimizations to various areas of memory usage, reducing instances of crashes on PlayStation
    • Improvements to tails being grabbed from a distance by players experiencing high latency
    • Fixed a Tail Tag exploit where players could stand on a podium and evade capture
    • Fixed Thin Ice music in Finals Marathon
