Fall Guys Sets Guinness World Record As The Most Downloaded PS Plus Game Ever

Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout launched August 4, 2020, as a “free” PlayStation Plus game. It didn’t take long before word-of-mouth spread about its fun blend of platforming and game show-style battle royale format, becoming one of the most popular multiplayer games on the market. Apparently, that initial buzz was even louder than we realized because Fall Guys has achieved the world record as the most downloaded PS Plus game of all time.

The honor has been certified by the Guinness World Records, and the accolade has been immortalized within the pages of the 2022 edition of its annual record book. Unfortunately, Mediatonic’s news post announcing the milestone doesn’t state the exact number of downloads. Odds are you’ll have to buy the book to learn how many downloads future PS Plus titles need to accrue to supplant Fall Guys. Still, that’s an impressive feat when you consider the sheer number of popular games offered by the service over the years, including similar multiplayer success stories like Rocket League. Fall Guys has beaten them all.  

In spite of what some lapsed players may believe, Fall Guys seems far from a “dead game.” Its 5th season, with a wild jungle theme, is in full swing, and its fans were treated to Kena: Bridge of Spirits costumes this week. Guinness Book of Records isn’t the only prestigious list Fall Guys has jumped its way onto. We at Game Informer also included it in our celebration of the 10 best modern platformers you can play right now. 

Handcop is a hilariously horrifying “fist person shooter” in development

Handcop is a work in progress “fist person shooter” that’s just as neat as it is horrifying. This wacky prodecurally-animated cop hand has three legs and chest hair for goodness sake. I can’t decide if three “legs” is better or worse than three finger “arms”. Oh, and of course officier Michael McWrist is running about carrying a giant gun. It’s relatively early days for Handcop right now, it sounds like, but its wacky animations are already catching the internet’s attention.

Frankenstein and Dracula are roomies in this moody narrative adventure

“Dracula and Frankenstein are modern day 20-something flatmates who never see one another and only exchange sticky notes. Also they are both very sad. Also Dracula wears puple shades,” is the kind of message I’d expect to see from one of my writing acquaintances with the timestamp [2:15am]. It’s also the kind of thing I’d respond to with a “yes, do it,” eager to find out exactly how the hell they would. That’s the energy that I downloaded Frank And Drake‘s demo with, and it sure is a moody, somber narrative adventure about two unlikely housemates.

Castlevania Advance Collection whips out four classics now on PC

Dracula’s back from the dead again and so are four Castlevania games from the aughts. Three different vampire stomping adventures originally hailing from the Game Boy Advance—and one SNES—have made their way into a new collection on PC via Steam. Two Belmonts, a Graves, and a Cruz all get their time to shine against those undead baddies in Castlevania: Circle Of The Moon, Harmony Of Dissonance, Aria Of Sorrow, and Dracula X. Konami launched the Castlevania Advance Collection yesterday, complete with some modern conveniences for us PC players in the year 2021.

This mod adds a universal photo mode to over 300 Unreal Engine games

Photo modes are undeniably in fashion now, so much so that I’ve just started assuming most major RPGs and third-person action games will have one built in at launch. I’ve never put in the time to get particularly skilled at lining up the best shots, but I’m always well impressed by those who do. It’s a bummer though when a looker of a game doesn’t have a way to really get up close and personal with its pretty cast and environments. Tales Of Arise, which just launched this month, doesn’t have one yet, for instance. That’s where the extremely nifty and very handy Universal Unreal Engine 4 Unlocker comes in. It’s a mod that lets you toggle a free camera to take amazing screenshots in over 300 Unreal Engine games.

Japanese Breakfast’s Sable Soundtrack Is Available Now

The exploration-focused indie title Sable launched yesterday, and if you have been cruising around its beautifully rendered world thinking to yourself, “this music is pretty rad! I’d listen to an entire album of this,” you’re in luck! The game’s soundtrack, composed by indie rock band Japanse Breakfast, is available to listen to now.

The 32-song tracklist features ambient music composed by Japanese Breakfast’s singer and songwriter Michelle Zauner. You can find the soundtrack on a variety of music streaming services, including Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube Music, and Pandora. For you vinyl collectors, you can pre-order a physical vinyl of the album. It comes as a 2-disc LP and offers both a standard edition for $20 and Sable-colored disc versions for $35. You can snag them at the band’s official merch store

Sable’s soundtrack is only one of its best qualities. In her 8.75 out of 10 review, editor Jill Grodt endorses the game by saying, “For those who love to explore, I can’t recommend Sable enough. Every element – beautiful graphics, compelling traversal, and player-driven plot – works together to ensure I simply lose myself in the world.” You can play it now on Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC, as well as on Game Pass. 

Have you played Sable? If so, what do you think of its soundtrack? Let us know in the comments! 

New Jurassic World Evolution 2 Video Shows Off Campaign And Chaos Theory Modes

Dinosaurs are freely roaming within the wilds of the United States, and the government has contracted you in to help contain them. In a new five-minute video for Jurassic World Evolution 2, Frontier Developments shows us how this concept plays out in the campaign mode.

You are working alongside the government’s Fish and Wildlife Department, as well as familiar characters from the Jurassic World universe, like Ian Malcolm (played again by actor Jeff Goldblum, who I recently spoke to about reprising his role). Claire Dearing and Owen Grady are also back, but we still don’t know who will be voicing them in the game.

The campaign mode shies away from theme park building and instead focuses on the act of tracking down dinosaurs and figuring out how to deal with them. Each dinosaur presents a different challenge, as does the environment they occupy. That habitat could produce new injuries and illnesses not yet explored in this game series.

The places you visit are much larger than the standard Jurassic World Evolution maps and instead flow much more like the Claire’s Sanctuary DLC map from that game. This means you’ll be spending more time in vehicles tracking down dinosaurs and studying the area.

Frontier also gives us a look at the new Chaos Theory mode, which includes a tease of the San Diego Jurassic Park theme park that never came to be in the movies.

Jurassic World EvolDanution 2 releases on November 9 for Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC.

“TMORPG” Book Of Travels will launch in early access on October 11th

Might And Delight’s “tiny Multiplayer Online RPG” Book Of Travels has scheduled itself a new early access launch date after its most recent delay. As M&D previously reassured fans, it is indeed a shorter wait than I’d feared. Their cozy online RPG is now setting out into early access on October 11th, with plans to work towards a full launch in two years.

Life Is Strange: Remastered Collection Coming In February

Life is Strange: Remastered was originally expected to launch around the same time as True Colors, but Deck Nine delayed it to ensure the well-being of its team. Deck Nine said the project would come in early 2022, but we finally have an official release date. Today, it was announced that Life is Strange: Remastered Collection hits on February 1, so you can start the winter month off right by reliving some of your favorite Max and Chloe moments. 

The collection includes the original Life is Strange and Before the Storm but uses a new engine and boasts lighting upgrades alongside brand new fully motion-captured facial animations. Beyond the remastered character and environment visuals, you can also expect Before the Storm’s deluxe content, which contains the Farewell episode and outfits like the Zombie Crypt shirt.

So get ready to visit Arcadia Bay, rewind time, and watch Max and Chloe’s friendship grow, either as a newcomer and returning fan. Then, prepare your emotions for Chloe’s adventures with Rachel Amber before her disappearance in Before the Storm.

Send Thatcher back to Hell in this new Doom 2 mod today

Following a short delay caused by Tennent’s Lager (actual true story), Margaret Thatcher has returned from Hell to menace us once more. Thankfully, one doomed space marine will stand up and venture into the tenth circle of Hell (aka the UK) to put the reviled British prime minister down for good. Thatcher’s Techbase is its name, and Doom 2 is the game you’ll need to play this free mod now it’s out. It is quite the thing, and even has a custom soundtrack from Paradise Killer’s composer.
