In a year that has seen a tremendous boost to the popularity of streaming platforms, Fall Guys is still able to take the number one spot on Twitch. According to new statistics reported by Gamesight, the game peaked at an astonishing 513,000 concurrent viewers upon release.
Fall Guys, which pits masses of players against one another in a series of wacky online trials, has caught the attention of some major streamers - something that is sure to have helped boost its popularity. The number one most-viewed Fall Guys streamer in none other than xQc, the third highest-ranked streamer with over 41,000 active subscribers.
In total, the game has millions of viewer hours already, despite launching earlier this week, and over 1.5 million players were logged in the first 24 hours of Fall Guys’ release. These numbers have actually proved somewhat problematic for developers Mediatonic, who have been struggling to get the servers together to cope with this demand.
Even despite the server downtime, Fall Guys also managed to bring itself into Steam’s Top 5 most played games yesterday, with over 100,000 concurrent players.
Now as we head into the weekend, we’re betting that Fall Guys’ popularity is about to hit new heights. As a truly unique and accessible game, it certainly deserves its time in the spotlight.
Fall Guys is available now on PlayStation 4 and PC. PlayStation Plus members can download it for free this month.
