Battle Royale games have been some of the biggest games in recent years with titles like Fortnite taking the world by storm. But, they haven’t been for everyone. There’s a level of skill needed in those games that require hours of practice and they have fostered some questionable community moments. But, not all Battle Royale games are the same, and Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout definitely stands out from the rest.

Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout is a colorful and chaotic battel royale with a difference. If you’ve ever seen Takeshi’s Castle, then you’ll have a fairly good idea of what this game is like (and if you haven’t, then look it up now because that show is a classic). The premise is simple, a group of players (we’re talking around 60 people here) are dumped into random levels that they need to complete to move on to the next. Each level is different; some will be obstacle courses, some require balance, and some will be filled with fake doors and floors that you have to navigate. Some levels even have you working in randomly selected teams with the losing group facing instant elimination. And it looks like we’ll be getting plenty more levels to play through in the future too.


Each level, some players will get wiped out in the madness and not make it to the next stage. When the group is down to around a dozen or so players, the fight to the finish begins which basically involves a lot of shoving.

I also highly recommend checking out their Twitter feed as it’s just as chaotic and kooky as the game itself.

Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout release date: August 4th, 2020

Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout is available on both PC and PlayStation 4. Unfortunately, there’s been no word whether it will ever release on Xbox or Nintendo as it’s been called a “Playstation exclusive” with a PC release on the side.

For PC users, you can buy Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout from the Steam Store. PlayStation users can grab it in the PS store as well. For PSPlus members, this is one of your free games for August so snap it up while you can as it’s proving to be a big hit.

Both the minimum and recommended system requirements are the same for Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout as it’s not really a heavy-hitter when it comes to graphics. Check out what you need to run it below.

Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system

  • OS: Windows 10 64bit only
  • Processor: Intel Core i5 or AMD equivalent
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GTX 660 or AMD Radeon HD 7950
  • Network: Broadband Internet connection
  • Storage: 2 GB available space

As you can see, the system requirements for Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout definitely aren’t very high, so for most people, a PC upgrade won’t be necessary. If you already own a gaming PC that can comfortably play your favorite games, then you’re likely to be all set.

That being said, if you do find your requirements falling short, or want to get hold of your first gaming PC along with this title then we recommend going for either our $600 or $700 gaming PCs. These builds will be able to play a lot of games with lower-end system requirements like this so you’ll be able to enjoy loads of your favorite titles. If you’re also wanting to enjoy some AAA upcoming titles like Cyberpunk 2077, then you’ll need a much beefier system. We would recommend something closer to our $1000 build for more demanding games like that.
