What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout is an upcoming action game for the Playstation 4 and Windows PCs. The game is an online multiplayer battle royale styled game, where it gathers 100 players into a group of challenges to see who survives the competitive and cooperative tests to move onto the next round. In some cases, you may have to run a course and try to leap through walls in an attempt to cross the finish line first; while other games may hand out a limited number of tails, tasking players to play keep away from everyone as long as possible without having the tail grabbed away from them. If players survive to the final round, they face off on a large vertical obstacle course full of swinging hammers, fast closing gates, and rolling boulders to see who can grab the floating crown at the end of the level. Gameplay is incredibly easy to learn, and most stages need only one or two buttons at the most to play. While characters can be hit by objects and even other players, sometimes launching them far into the air, this is handled in a comedic manner without any blood, gore, or injuries ever shown. If anything, characters simply squish and rag doll away before popping back up and moving forward. Otherwise, there’s no inappropriate content in the game.
