Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout has become the most downloaded PS Plus title ever, Sony has confirmed.
While not confirming exactly how many downloads it equates to, Sony announced Fall Guys has toppled all other past PS Plus titles in total downloads globally.
While most titles are made available to PS Plus subscribers long after they go on general release, Fall Guys emulated Rocket League’s successful strategy of starting out for free on the service - riding the wave of fresh interest to accumulate a huge player base.
The game itself has become a huge success largely because of it, becoming one of the most played games on Twitch and igniting social media with their excellent Twitter presence.
While Sony doesn’t reveal what Fall Guys beat to earn the PS Plus crown, an infographic celebrating the 10-year anniversary from earlier this year listed the top five PS Plus games as the below.
- Call of Duty 4 Remastered
- Sonic Forces
- Shadow of the Colossus
- Call of Duty: Black Ops 3
- Destiny 2

Will Fall Guys be able to sustain popularity after this initial storm? We’ll have to see.
Fall Guys is available on PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam.
