Fall Guys Leak Claims Halo-Themed Content is Coming to the Game
Crossover content is always a crowd pleaser. Fans love to see their favorite characters in places they might not expect. This is why Sora was revealed for Super Smash Bros. This month, Ultimate caused waves that were as large as mountains. The more crossovers that are coming to Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout, it seems.
Fall Guys is no stranger to cross-platform properties. Just last month, the game received a skin for Kena: Bridge of Spirits. Fall Guys is not tied to any one console’s exclusive cosmetics. If a Twitter leak proves to be true, it could be that the fun will shift to Microsoft, particularly to its flagship Halo franchise.
Three cosmetics with Halo themes are headed to Fall Guys, according to @FgPancake on Twitter. The file names for three new items are leaked. They appear to be named after the grunt, chieftain, and Master Chief. This would be a significant step towards ensuring that Fall Guys have more Xbox representation to match Sony’s exclusives.
Pancake suggests that these skins may be released alongside Fall Guys’ Xbox version. This would make sense. It’s only fair to expect Fall Guys to get more famous Fall Guys.
This leak is also good news for Halo fans hoping to become Master Chief. Pancake, though not associated with Mediatonic has claimed many leaks that ended up becoming reality in the past, so it would be safe to assume that this would also be true.
Mediatonic and Devolver Digital would make smart business decisions by including Halo-themed cosmetics in their games. Fall Guys has a massive PlayStation playerbase, so it would be a smart move to try and get more Xbox fans to give the fun party game a shot.
If that is what the intention is, Master Chief is one of few Microsoft mascots who has such a wide appeal. One reply to the tweet claiming the leak said, “Sir,” when asked about Master Chief’s activities in Fall Guys. Woo!
Fall Guys was the game that gamers talked about for a while. It was streamed on Twitch and YouTube by many of the most prominent names in Twitch and YouTube right after it launched. The smart launch strategy for PlayStation Plus was combined with a cute aesthetic and clever game concepts to create a fun atmosphere that all ages could enjoy. The game’s popularity grew as it was embraced by other properties. Everything from the Doom Slayer and the Rot from Kena Bridge of Spirits has been added to it.
Although Fall Guys isn’t as popular as it used to be, there would be a resurgence of interest if Mediatonic partnered up with Netflix to produce some Squid Game content. The Korean series has been a huge success, much like Fall Guys. It is unlikely that the debate about its deadly games will slow down. The TV series and the game share a similar premise. Some Squid Game-inspired stages or outfits could be a great Season of Fall Guys content.
Although the Fall Guys’ Seasons have not yet taken on a specific theme, Squid Game deserves a whole Season of attention. Imagine a battle pass with items inspired by the show. A victory pose would see a bean holding up the Squid Game piggybank, or an emote watching cute beans throw some Ddakji. Battle Pass cosmetics may include Squid Game profile items as well as different-numbered jumpsuits similar to those worn by Squid Game participants. Another memorable skin could be created by including the episode 8 tuxedos.
The more costly Fall Guys cosmetics require players to spend crowns each piece. This could allow Soldiers and The Front Man access. A Fall Guys bean would look fantastic in the iconic pink Soldier outfits, as well as some square, triangle and circle face plates. The Front Man’s unique black mask will make him stand out among other Fall Guys skins currently in the game. These outfits will be a great incentive for gamers to continue playing Squid Games, as other communities have already created skins for the game, such overwatch’s Ana becoming a Soldier.
However, the most exciting part about hypothetical Squid Game content are not the costumes. Mediatonic could instead create multiple stages that reflect the games featured in the Netflix series. It is clear that the Squid Game would be a good idea. Fall Guys beans can die if they are removed from the game’s playing space. It is already a mechanic that allows players to grab each other, so letting them push each other during this stage would make it work.
The most intriguing game idea is Redlight, Greenlight, which is featured in the Squid Game’s first episode. A giant Fall Guys bean, which could be used as a motion detector and giant killer doll, could track the movement of players as they attempt to cross the finish line. Fall Guys’ pushing, which allows beans to slip and fall, would be at its highest here. Players could even kill each other if necessary. It would be different from Fall Guys races to move slowly and carefully, and it would be intense for other players to be eliminated as the game progresses.
The possibilities for such a crossover are endless with Fall Guys’ Tip Toe able to have a visual redesign that matches the bridge from Squid Game’s seventh episode. Although Squid Game’s violence needs to be reduced to fit Fall Guys’ E rating, there’s still plenty of potential. Squid Game is getting a lot of love, and it could be the subject of a video game. With Netflix’s plans to offer gaming on its service, a crossover with Fall Guys would be a great idea for now.
