Fall Guys is giving everyone a new skin to apologize for server troubles

The Legendary Prickles outfit and 5,000 Kudos will be given to anyone who's played the game before midnight tonight.

Fall Guys players who’ve launched the game before midnight tonight will get a free skin and Kudos points.

Not content with dropping news of the first post-launch collaboration skin today, Fall Guys is back again with another new skin announcement. This time the team has revealed a new cactus skin being given free to all players as compensation for early server troubles.

Dropped directly into the grasping hands of PSN subscribers worldwide, Fall Guys’ servers struggled initially with the high influx, causing major problems on the first day of release, then had to take the servers down once more to perform maintenance heading into the weekend. The servers are now working happily, but as thanks to the community for putting up with these initial struggles, Mediatonic promised some form of in-game compensation, which should be arriving soon.

Announced on Twitter today, anyone who has launched the game even once before midnight tonight will be granted the Legendary Prickles costume, along with 5,000 Kudos to spend in the store. That means if you were eyeing up Fall Guys on Steam but hadn’t committed to the purchase yet, you might want to do so today. The same applies to any PS Plus members who’ve yet to download the game. Kudos can be spent on new outfits and colors for your jelly bean guy. The Legendary Prickles outfit is a variant of a design submitted through the team's previous Make A Fall Guys contest. 

Again, to get the Legendary Prickles costume in Fall Guys, all you need to do is have played the game at least once before midnight tonight.
