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 3v3 Team KO, 3v3 Diamond Dash or 4v4 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 May 21 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC on Origin, Steam and Epic Games Store, and PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series XS via backwards compatibility, in addition to EA Play and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members. No matter the platform the game will support full cross-play and cross progression. At launch, players will have access to a free trial for a limited time during which the full game will be playable, and if players want to continue playing after that, they can purchase the game for $19.99.
