Fall Guys is adding more than just new costumes and stages for the start of Season 4; it’s also introducing Squads mode, and the new team-based option will let even the clumsiest players stay in the game if their teammates are able to keep it together.
Speaking to IGN, lead game designer Joe Walsh (far cooler than the Eagles lead guitarist), said that if one player is eliminated during a round, they’ll still be able to come back if their teammates perform well enough. It isn’t necessarily about just dying first, but scoring the lowest as a team. A points system will determine who did the worst, which should also make it so being simply the best player doesn’t necessarily mean your team will be the best.
You’ll also be more encouraged to sabotage other players, especially if you have more people left as you’re approaching the finish in a Final Round. Two players can sacrifice themselves to knock out the other team while the remaining player cruises to victory, for instance.
