Mediatonic’s Fall Guys is pretty popular. The launch of the massively popular game has rocked the Battle Royale genre. The game offers some surprisingly compelling mini-games and fun competition that has propelled it to a major height of sales. “Battle bizarre obstacles, shove through unruly competitors, and overcome the unbending laws of physics to avoid both humiliation and elimination,” read the description from the publisher. “Leave your dignity at the door and prepare for hilarious failure in your quest for the crown!”
It has gotten so popular that the game has set a new record. Mediatonic’s Fall Guys is the most downloaded PS Plus game of all time.
Fall Guys is out now for PC and PlayStation 4. And it has just started gaining in popularity. But with that popularity, things are bound to get problematic. As more players hop into the competition, there’s bound to be gamers who want to cheat. And that means players who aren’t cheating are about to be really angry. And the effect was found to be widespread almost immediately.
In a tweet from the official Fall Guys account, the developers have said they’re “really sorry about the current cheating problem” but they are working on a solution. The studio has announced that their cheat detection is being overhauled to add in some new items that help reduce hacking and other cheating. This will likely have a pretty big impact against cheaters in the game. Fall Guys anti-cheat is needed, so let’s hope this works out.
As for what kind of cheating detection, it seems like the company is pointing toward using the Epic-owned Easy-AntiCheat or BattleEye. These options are both pretty robust, and should make a very positive change for the game.
