Epic Games has purchased ‘Fall Guys’ studio Mediatonic
Alongside Mediatonic, Tonic Games Group owns Irregular Corporation and Fortitude Games.
Epic Games has purchased Tonic Games Group, the parent organization of Fall Guys studio Mediatonic. The collective likewise incorporates the distributer Irregular Corporation and another studio, Fortitude Games.
“Beyond the shared vision among our teams, we see tremendous potential in combining forces with Epic,” Tonic Games Group co-founder and chief games officer Paul Croft said in a statement. “Whether it’s about making our own games the best they can be or empowering other game developers to take their content from a kernel of an idea to commercial success, we know that together we will be able to reach greater heights.”
The Fall Guys “gameplay isn’t changing,” as per Epic. The organization intends to continue to put resources into the hit platformer fight royale. The game is at present accessible on PlayStation 4, PS5 and Steam. Fall Guys will arrive on Nintendo Switch and Xbox this late spring. Apparently after this arrangement, it will show up on the Epic Games Store later on too.
In a blog post, Mediatonic said it’s expecting to bring a portion of the highlights of Fortnite and Rocket League over to Fall Guys. Those incorporate record frameworks, cross-play and crew versus crew modes. In contrast to those other two games, Fall Guys isn’t going allowed to-play, in any event not for now. Fall Guys as of now utilizes a similar anti-cheat software as Fortnite.
The news goes ahead the exact day that Fall Guys got five BAFTA Games Awards designations. Mediatonic as of late uncovered a cutting edge subject for the game’s impending fourth season.
