YouTube has announced a live charity gaming tournament featuring an all-star gaming creator lineup competing in Fall Guys Season 2. Starting at 11 a.m. PT on Friday, Oct. 9, this two hour celebration will debut the new medieval Season 2 content, including new costumes, emotes, levels and more. The winners of the tournament will receive a $100,000 donation to the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) on their behalf as well as a custom YouTube Gaming Fall Guys crown.
The tournament will be live streamed on the official Fall Guys YouTube Channel and feature prominent creators AyChristine, CouRage, ItsFunneh, JeromeASF, Jazzyguns, KreekCraft, Logdotzip, and more. Creators will compete in teams of two and accumulate points over a set number of matches for a shot at the Grand Finals, with the top two teams squaring off to see who takes the crown and charity donation.
