Fall Guys Twitch Rivals: An Amazing Number of Viewers During the First Event

Fall Guys Twitch Rivals: An Amazing Number of Viewers During the First Event

Is the Mediatonic party game ephemeral? This Friday's Twitch Rivals proved otherwise. A month after its official release, Fall Guys is still gathering crowds on the streaming platform for its first steps in a competitive format.

Fall Guys Twitch Rivals: An Amazing Number of Viewers During the First Event

Almost four weeks after its global launch, Fall Guys still has an amazing viewership on Twitch. The first Twitch Rivals event devoted to the en vogue party game took place on Friday evening, and the number of simultaneous spectators happily crossed 700,000. Fall Guys outclassed CS:GO, League of Legends and Fortnite, the three heavyweights of the streaming platform, which gathered barely 200,000 viewers over the period.

Slasher's comment about Fall Guys being "the world's #1 esport" may not be ironic for very long.

The organisers only invited streamers based in North America, in an online format that's still in its infancy. Certainly, many big names in the NA stream game were there (such as Tyler1, DrLupo, and NICKMERCS), but their presence alone is far from explaining the colossal viewing figures.

The origins of many viewers here went far beyond American borders. Because it has to be said: Fall Guys is incredibly entertaining to watch, both to admire the tricks used by the best players and to laugh at the misfortune of others.

Even without knowing the competitors, the show was worth it. And even if at the time of writing esports orgs are still cautious about following Panda Global in picking up players or a roster for the game, the phenomenon of competitive Fall Guys is there.

Ninja, MrBeast, G2 and AimLab pledge $1 million to Special Effect

The Fall Guys Battle of the Brands auction is finally over. After weeks of companies and personalities alike jousting on social media, the winning bid comes from Ninja, MrBeast, G2 Esports and Aim Lab. They all teamed up to deliver an unbeatable $1 million bid for the Special Effect charity.
