Gamers who are subscribed to Xbox Game Pass will be able to play the game when it launches on May 21 for either Xbox or PC (for Ultimate subscribers.) Knockout City brings intense battles to players as they master the art of throwing, catching, passing, and dodging in a highly competitive experience, with joyful surprises popping up around every corner.
Here’s an overview of the game, via EA:
Starting at launch, all EA Play members (across all platforms) will not only have unlimited access to the full game—with five starting playlists, six special balls, five multiplayer maps, one interactive environment and more—but they can also duke it out in style with the exclusive Knockout City “Epic Outfit: Ready Up,” which will be automatically added to their inventory once the game is booted up. Once suited up, players can plan with their Crew to create a much bigger threat by stringing together faster throws or giving the opponent the ol’ one-two hit.
Whether battling it out all over the city, from Rooftop Rumble to the Concussion Yard, Knockout City offers a variety of weapons – including the classic Standard Ball, the explosive Bomb Ball, the trapping Cage Ball and the gravity defying Moon Ball – to take down opponents in style. In addition, players can also switch up their playlists to keep each match interesting, whether rolling solo in a Face-Off match, outsmarting opponents with their Crew in three-versus-three Team KO, three-versus-three Diamond Dash, or four-versus-four Ball-Up Brawl. Players who fancy free-for-all competition can jump into KO Chaos, while those looking to settle beef can play a private match in any playlist.
Knockout City will be available for PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC on May 21.
