Developer Mediatonic has announced some new details about Fall Guys Season 2, including when it will launch, a small extension of Season 1, and a new look at the medieval-themed season.
Fall Guys Season 2 has been a long time coming. After the game blew up back in August 2020, the developers were quick to announce what they had planned for the future at Gamescom Opening Night. Mediatonic promised a medieval-themed season, with knights, dragon, witches, and more making their way into the battle royale game.
Now, Season 2 is almost upon us, but up until this point we didn’t have a ton of official fine-tuned details about the new stream of content and how the game would transition over to that season. Now, however, that’s all changed.

Announcing dates always feels like you're cursing things, but it's Halloween month, so let's get cursed!
In addition to a brand new piece of artwork from the upcoming season, developer Mediatonic also officially announced that Season 2 of Fall Guys will be dropping in less than a week, on October 8 – which is two days after what fans previously expected based on the in-game Season 1 end date.
In addition, the developers also confirmed that Season 1 will be officially extended in order to correlate with the new date, giving fans an extra two days to earn some fame points, the game’s version of XP.
Speaking of XP, the developer confirmed that they will be enabling double fame points starting on October 5 in order to help fans put in one last grind.
In a recent Reddit post, Joe Walsh from Mediatonic confirmed that fans won’t be able to earn Season 1 rewards after it’s over, at least for a while that is, so this a great opportunity to finish up that content stream.
All in all, it’ll be interesting to see just how much content the developer adds to the game during the update. Here’s hoping we learn more about it soon, including how levels and costumes it is adding, in addition to the official patch notes.
The Chipotle Challenger Series returned on Octrober 1, this time featuring Fortnite Battle Royale action as players and a star-studded list of influencers and streamers went head-to-head.
Both of the previous events in the 2020 Chipotle Challenger Series were won by surprise teams, as unexpected players made it all the way through the qualifiers to take home the winner’s prize and a year’s worth of free burritos in the finale.

Chipotle and esports
This is far from Chipotle’s first foray into the world of esports. In 2017 the company made headlines as one of OpTic Gaming’s main sponsors and the Chipotle logo was on proud display when the organization’s Call of Duty roster took home the trophy at the 2017 Call of Duty World League Championship.
The Challenger Series first kicked off at DreamHack Dallas, where players duked it out on PUBG, before moving to Fortnite for the second event at DreamHack Atlanta.
In 2018 Chipotle became a title sponsor of Team SoloMid’s competitive Fortnite roster, specifically the TSM Fortnite house in California. This has led to various collaborations, including one of the world’s most recognized streamers, Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani, creating his own burrito inside a Chipotle store.
