Fall Guys has managed to take the crown for Best Multiplayer Game at the Golden Joystick Awards.

The battle royale phenomenon, which sees 64 players compete in various mini-games to try and come out on top, was the victor in a hotly contested category that included Call of Duty: Warzone, FIFA 20, and Animal Crossing: New Horizons. You can check out the full list of nominees below. 

  • Fall Guys (winner)
  • Call of Duty: Warzone
  • Animal Crossing: New Horizons
  • Deep Rock Galactic
  • Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2
  • The Dark Pictures Anthology: Little Hope
  • Moving Out
  • Valorant

Fall Guys' explosive start to life saw over 2 million people download the game on Steam, as well as countless others as a PS Plus freebie. Since then, the adorable battle royale has already introduced a second, medieval-themed, season, as well as new stages, new costumes, and crossovers with Untitled Goose Game and Sonic The Hedgehog.

In GamesRadar's Fall Guys review, we write: "Some games take a while to grow on you. Maybe it takes an hour or two of playtime. Maybe its greatness only begins to reveal itself after a particular plot twist, or once a game-changing ability is unlocked. It takes all of 30 seconds to understand what makes Fall Guys so awesome. By subverting the still-blossoming battle royale genre with party game mechanics, Mediatonic's breakout game packs all of the tension of Call of Duty: Warzone or PUBG into an adorable Mario Party for the masses."
