Fall Guys patch notes: More fair team games but no auto party spectating just yet

The Fall Guys patch notes for hotfix 2 rolled out early this week, and you can see all the changes right here.

The update includes everything that developer Mediatonic teased over the weekend, with one big exception: you still won't automatically start spectating teammates when you're eliminated. The feature "wasn't quite ready yet," so hopefully we won't need to keep scrolling through randos in spectator mode for much longer.

Aside from that absence, the changes are full of good news for dedicated fallers - especially a change to the round selection algorithm that means team games will only come up if there will be even teams. No more being doomed by a low player count from the start. The Fall Guys update also rolled in with a pair of fixes for Jump Showdown geometry and unintended camera auto-panning, as well as changes that should make it harder to accidentally buy stuff from the in-game store.

Here are the full Fall Guys patch notes, straight from Mediatonic's official Twitter account. Oh, and I'm pretty sure that last one is a joke… probably.
