The start of Fall Guys Season 4 has reignited player excitement for the multiplayer platforming and party game. But it's not just the addition of seven new Fall Guys rounds, daily challenges, and Crown Shards to make Crown collection easier that has brought back players. It's also the addition of Squads Mode, which allows groups of up to four players to take on other groups. It's apparently so popular that Mediatonic has confirmed that it's no longer temporary -- Squads Mode is here to stay.
Mediatonic shared the good news via the official Fall Guys Twitter account early Friday morning, noting that it updated it on April 1 but decided to reshare the news to confirm it wasn't a meme. The tweet says that Squads Mode is remaining as a permanent part of Fall Guys going forward due to the community's continued support of it and the overall positive response.
Squads Mode is a new feature added with Season 4 of Fall Guys in late March. It allows groups of up to four to join into a match together, where they'll compete against other squads as a group. The team element of the mode has added a competitive element to the experience previously unavailable, especially since random elements can impact the solo Fall Guys experience rather heavily.
It's easy to see why Mediatonic might be incentivized to retain Squads Mode, too. According to Steam data scrapers, the start of Season 4 of Fall Guys has seen its highest player count of 2021. Further, it appears to be retaining players much longer than with previous seasons. Squads could help that trend keep going, so it's no surprise Fall Guys is going to keep it.
Those players that haven't come back to Fall Guys in a while have no better time to do so than right now. With season four finally here, there are a host of new levels to play and costumes to collect. On top of that, there is also an innovative new game mode that lets friends tackle shows together as a team. Squads mode was just added to the game as part of its fourth season, and although it is currently a temporary mode, it may become permanent if it goes over well with the players. For the first time ever, players can truly fall as a team and win as a team.
Fall Guys Season 4 brings players millenniums into the future to the year 4041, and it seems that these beans have finally figured out how to work together. Players can queue up for Squads mode in teams of four, with matchmaking to help fill any empty spaces. Although players could always join a show together, they would inevitably end up competing with one another. Even if friends managed to avoid sabotaging one another throughout the entire show, most of the finals can only have one winner.
Although it seems like some kind of purely team based mode should have been in the game from the start, there's a lot of nuance to how Mediatonic implemented it properly. In each round, rather than players competing against each other, each remaining squad competes against all the others. At the end of the round, the highest ranked squads will make it through to the next round. This means that a player could finish a race in first place but still not qualify if the rest of their team struggled, but the reverse is also true. Lower skilled players are able to enjoy more of what Fall Guys has to offer when playing with high skill level friends.
