Mobile version of Fall Guys is a scam, Mediatonic warns

Several YouTube videos claimed you could play the battle royale hit on mobile

There is no mobile version of battle royale hit Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout, developer Mediatonic had to clarify.

A video called 'Play Fall Guys on Mobile' appeared on YouTube over the weekend, with more starting to crop up since. It sparked questions about whether an iOS or Android version of the title existed.

"If you see any ads for a mobile version, they are scams," Mediatonic warned on the Fall Guys Twitter account, reminding users that the Devolver-published game is only available on PC and PS4.

Talking about one of the videos that appeared on YouTube, Mediatonic also pointed out how blatantly fake it was: "They're literally playing a video and pretending to play it. There's literally a mouse cursor on the screen."

Fall Guys released in early August and instantly became a hit, reaching 1.5 million players in 24 hours.

While it's currently only available on two platforms, Mediatonic did say in the FAQ of its website that it would "love to bring the game to other platforms further down the line."

The studio confirmed on Twitter last week that the team was only focusing PC and PS4 for now.

Mediatonic and its sister companies, developer Fortitude Games and publishing label The Irregular Corporation, recently grouped together under the Tonic Games Group brand.
