Fall Guys Season 2 dropped yesterday and, alongside its new levels and cosmetics, it also popped in a new limited-time mode, Gauntlet Showdown. According to Mediatonic, that mode is the first of a few experimental limited-time modes, which could even become permanent fixtures in future.

Speaking to IGN, a Mediatonic spokesperson explained that Gauntlet Showdown is a game mode that only includes Fall Guys’ Race modes, cutting out team games and other types of elimination rounds. “It’s essentially a time-limited Show for those who just want to race to the finish line!”, they explained.

Gauntlet Showdown is currently only scheduled to run for a week, but it seems it will be the first in a series of limited-time modes. “The plan is to trial a few different shows and see what the reaction is like!” said the spokesperson. “Some might become permanent in the future, you never know…right now we’re just running them as a bit of an experiment.”

If you haven’t checked out Season 2 just yet, we’ve published gameplay of the new events, and even revealed one of them – Knight Fever. And as if that wasn’t enough, we went and found out how Knight Fever was made, too.

The medieval-themed Fall Guys Season 2 also adds medieval and fantasy-themed costumes, nameplates and titles, and will be a little more generous with the crowns it doles out. You can see the full list of new features and list of rewards in our Official Fall Guys Wiki.
