Fall Guys adds Star Trek, Aliens, and Hatsune Miku in its new season

Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout announced its next season today, taking the beans where no bean has gone before. Season 2 of the recently gone free-to-play platform-party battle royale is moving the festivities to space in Satellite Scramble. The update will bring some major collaborations to the game, from Star Trek to Hatsune Miku.

Fall Guys Season 2: Satellite Scramble follows a tale of the game’s bean mascots leaving their home planet (home of the Blunderdome) behind in search of “intergalactic frontiers.” The new season brings more cosmic maps, minigames, aesthetics, costumes, challenges, and more to the title. The minigames are said to be space-themed variations of previous Rounds present in Solo, Duo, and Squads playlists. These come along with all-new Rounds that debut with the upcoming season 2 launch event.

New confirmed Rounds include:

  • Tiptoe Finale
  • Starchart
  • Pixel Painters
  • Cosmic Highway
  • Hyperdrive Heroes
  • Hex-a-terrestrial
  • Space Race
  • Frantic Factory

Season 2 will bring Star Trek’s Spock, the Xenomorph from the Alien series, and Hatsune Miku to the game as skins. Each of these collaborations is unlockable in the upcoming 100-plus level battle pass, along with other space-themed costumes, emotes, and unlocks.

The journey beyond the stars begins with a launch event on September 15. This event comes with various unlockable rewards that players can get by earning points in the launch playlist, similar to the recent Sonic the Hedgehog collaboration event. These rewards include:

  • Space Bean Nickname: 200 Points
  • 200 Kudos: 300 Points
  • Satellite Explorer Nameplate: 500 Points
  • Space Icons Pattern: 800 Points
  • Satellite Backpack: 1000 Points

The new season of Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout begins on September 15 with a special launch event. The game is free-to-download for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, PC, and Nintendo Switch.

VR headset deals: Meta Quest bundles and refurbished offers
htc vive vs pro headphones

While VR tech hasn't quite gotten as big as people once thought it would, it has gotten to the point where you don't have to have a high-end gaming PC just to use it. Models like the Oculus Go and the Quest make it possible to have a VR experience for a reasonable price without having to hook yourself up to a whole PC just to experience it. Not only that, but there have been some truly incredible VR games, such as Half-Life: Alyx, that are truly unique VR experiences. To that end, we've gone out and collected some of our favorite VR headset deals, although be aware the market is mostly bare right now, so the only available deals are refurbished versions and bundles. Also, if you do want to expand the power of your VR headset with a desktop, be sure to check out these gaming PC deals, as well as these great video game deals.
Meta Quest 2 (Renewed Premium) -- $270

Even though the Meta Quest 3 came out quite recently, the Meta Quest 2 is still a pretty powerful contender, especially since it has a wider library and app support than the Quest 3 currently has. Even more so, the Quest 2 is a lot cheaper than the Quest 3, and with the latest permanent discount down to just $200, that's a whole $300 or so difference from the Quest 3. Of course, the Quest 3 does have more advanced AR and slightly better performance with software and Wi-Fi, but that may not be worth the extra cost for some. Either way, be sure to check out the breakdown between Quest 2 and Quest 3 to get a better sense of what you should pick up.

Apex Legends sort of reverses its battle pass changes after backlash
A Legend Upgrade ability is used in Apex Legends.

Respawn Entertainment has decided to reverse one of the most controversial changes to its new Apex Legends battle pass system: the ability to buy a premium battle pass only with real-world currency, although it didn't address other issues.

In a statement released on X (formerly Twitter) and on publisher Electronic Arts' website on Wednesday, the team said they were reinstating the ability to buy the premium battle pass with 950 Apex Coins, which was the price before the announced battle pass updates. Players will also get the chance to unlock a free premium battle pass by completing what it calls "simple" in-game missions during the first half of Season 22.
