Fall Guys player count blasted past 1.5 million players in the first 24 hours after launch, publisher Devolver Digital and developer Mediatonic have announced, with a patch being already in the works.
The massively multiplayer party game has been a runaway success, however, Fall Guys' player count also led to the game's servers being overwhelmed by the sheer amount of players trying to partake in its colorful, chaotic action.
Although Fall Guys' first patch wasn't detailed just yet, it will likely include some semblance of fixes or improvements to help the game's servers better deal with its large player count.
Fall Guys Player Count and Patch
Website SteamDB reports a fairly high all-time peak Fall Guys player count of 76,520 at the time of writing.
The game also launched on PS4 via PS Plus, which also saw tons of players trying to play. The official Twitter account has taken a light-hearted approach to dealing with the server issues, pointing out how 146,524 players were attempting to connect at a time when it had announced that matchmaking would be taken offline for 2 hours.
There's clearly a lot of interest in Fall Guys whimsical take on battle royale-style action. It'll be interesting to see how long the hype for the freshly released title will last.
