Developer Mediatonic announced several major innovations to its game “Jelly Bean: Ultimate Knockout” (Fall Guys) in its live broadcast today (17th). Overall, it is quite similar to the “Rocket League” previously acquired by Epic Games. .
First and foremost, the game will be fully converted to free games from June 21, and the Xbox and Nintendo Switch versions will also be launched on the same day. The PC platform will be transferred to the Epic Games Store, and a new season will be opened simultaneously on all platforms, including new levels of course.
At the same time, including the existing PC and PS versions, a complete cross-platform play has been achieved (all platforms need to be bound to an Epic Games account). Recently, Mediatonic has officially launched the PS5 version of “Jelly Bean”, and the official also mentioned that the PS5 version has a faster reading speed and improved performance.
But the bad news for Steam fans is that “Jelly Bean: The Ultimate Knockout” will also be removed from Steam. However, it has no effect on players who have already purchased it on Steam, and can still be played and updated in the future. But new PC version players can’t download the game on Steam and have to force transfer to the Epic Games Store.
This decision is not difficult to understand, after all, Mediatonic has been acquired by Epic Games in March this year.
