The game launched on August 4th, and in almost one week since launch, with the game being Steam’s top seller since then. The feat is somewhat impressive, considering the game is free through August on PlayStation 4 though PS Plus. Other facts that were revealed include 1.5 million crowns grabbed, 60 million Fall Guys fallen, and 23 million hours watched on Twitch.
