Knockout City, the dodgeball-obsessed title from Velan Studios, is launching an in-game Block Party on May 21, a free festival-style event offering 10 straight days of nonstop party-till-you-drop content running from May 21 @ 5am PT / 8am ET to May 30 @ 5am PT / 8am ET. EA and Velan welcome all dodgebrawlers, no matter the platform, to crew up and fight for dominance in Knockout City at no cost for 10-days starting at launch!
To give players a full look at the Block Party events, EA and Velan Studios published a blog today spotlighting all the new content such as earnable rewards, limited-time events, creator customization options and more. Additionally, Knockout City Season 1 will begin on May 25, only four days after launch, challenging Crews to explore brand-new locations, check off Season 1 Crew Contracts, brawl along to new Playlists, climb the ranks of League Play and more. The blog also provides a snapshot of the major activities planned during Block Party, which you can check out here.
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 the free Block Party, and if they want to continue playing after that, they can purchase the game for $19.99, receiving bonus content and earning awards including an Epic Outfit, Hairstyle, Glasses, Glider, Intro Pose and KO Effect, as well as three Player Icons and 500 Holobux.
