Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout sells 2 million copies on Steam
In a surprise “knockout”, Mediatonic’s Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout has sold 2 million copies on Steam, according to a tweet by publisher Devolver Digital. It’s an impressive milestone considering that the game isn’t free (and is, in fact, $19.99) and that there’s a slew of free-to-play battle royale competitors out there.
Fall Guys is like an unholy fusion of the battle royale genre and obstacle courses, where contestants compete to be the last one standing in a series of wacky minigames.
More details emerge about Cyberpunk 2077‘s lifepaths
Another episode of Night City Wire is up, and this one is chock full of juicy tidbits:
One of the more interesting topics are the game’s lifepaths, which are basically your character’s biography and background story. While most games just have you pick one and be done with it, Cyberpunk 2077’s prologue changes completely depending on your choice. So far there are three lifepaths announced: Nomad, Street Kid, and Corpo.
Maybe a better way to think of them is something akin to World of Warcraft‘s starting factions.
Twitch Prime is no more (technically)
Variety reports that Twitch Prime is headed to the garbage dump, only to be replaced by Amazon Prime Gaming. What does this actually mean?
Turns out, not a whole lot. The rebranding just means that Amazon can push Prime Gaming outside of Twitch and possibly raise awareness of some of the service’s perks like the monthly free games (okay, I definitely wasn’t aware of that).
Yoshinori Ono is leaving Capcom after nearly 30 years
A legend in Street Fighter history is retiring. Yoshinori Ono of Capcom announced his retirement in a bittersweet tweet. Ono was famous for being the producer for many of the Street Fighter games, but was also involved in a number of other projects at Capcom during his tenure.
