Fall Guys Season 5 is expected to launch at some point in the next week with Fall Guys Season 4.5 hitting the two-month mark, and developer Mediatonic finally revealed the new theme for Season 5 today as "JUNGLE ADVENTURE." More specifically, the developer released a jigsaw puzzle online that was solved in just over an hour to reveal the new theme. This isn't the first time that Mediatonic has tasked the online community with solving a puzzle to produce a reveal, but it certainly seems to be the fastest that one's been solved.
Thematic throughlines for Fall Guys content are by far not a new addition. Season 2 was a fantasy theme, Season 3 was all about winter, and Season 4 had an '80s-inspired retro vibe. And now, now Fall Guys is set to enter the jungle. As usual, the official key art for the new season appears to reveal a variety of new costumes for the title like what appears to be some pirate and explorer variations, an alpaca or llama, a mummy, and there's even what seems to be a little Robin Hood-like figure hiding in the water. Also, as added during recent seasons, it appears that Season 5 will include new critters. The background of the key art has a purple-and-beige rhino on wheels and the foreground includes a new take on pegwins.

As noted above, Fall Guys Season 5 is expected to launch in the near future. Season 4.5 -- called DAVE -- is the most recent major update to the title, and it was released back in May. It added two new rounds, 55 variations across 12 different rounds, custom lobbies, crossplay, and a whole mess of improvements and bug fixes throughout. Fall Guys itself is currently available on both PlayStation 4 and PC, and it was also recently announced that it would release for the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S this summer.
