Astro Bot is coming to Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout and he’s arriving tomorrow!
If you’re scratching your head, all you need to know is that he’s star of Astro’s Playroom, a free PlayStation 5 platformer that shows off some of the console’s cooler features. Sure, that wasn’t technically his first appearance, but it’s the game he’s most famous for because, despite being a freebie, it’s an awful lot of fun.
Now he’s joining multiplayer obstacle course game Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout, as a wearable costume. He’ll be arriving tomorrow, alongside a T-Rex, but Astro Bot is by far the more striking of the two. You can purchase the T-Rex from the in-game store, using crowns, but you’ll have to unlock Astro Bot by completing Fall Guys’ Sweet Thieves Challenges, which will be running between the 8th and 13th of March. That said, we wouldn’t be surprised if Astro Bot was added to the store some time after challenge.
However, that’s not the most interesting part of developer Mediatonic’s announcement. Posting on the PlayStation website, the developer has also explained how costumes go from hand drawn concept art to actual models. We’d quite like to see the costume ideas that were floated but never made it into the game.
Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout is currently available on PC and PlayStation and will be coming to the Xbox and Nintendo Switch at some point this year. The Astro Bot and T-Rex costumes will be available from tomorrow, March 8th.
