Knockout City A Combination of Sports and Shooter in One Game

Knockout City is an upcoming action video game developed by Velan Studios and published by Electronic Arts.

Knockout City is a team-based competitive multiplayer video game whose gameplay rules resemble Dodgeball. The player’s goal is to attack enemies from the opposing team by knocking them out with a ball. There are several types of balls in the game. These include: the Moon Ball, which allows the person holding the ball to jump higher. The Bomb Ball, which is a time bomb that explodes on impact.

A player can also throw another player as a ball. Players can either quickly throw the ball or charge up the ball for Ultimate Throw. This takes more time but it locks onto nearby enemies automatically and results in an more effective attack. A successful throw depends not on the accuracy of the throw, but on the player’s positioning and strategy. Players can dodge or catch a ball that is thrown at them. However if you are hit twice you will respawn. The player can also fake throw a ball, and tackle an opponent holding a ball. As you progress in the game, you will receive HoloBucks. These can be spent at the Brawl Shop to unlock various customization items.

The game will feature five maps and six modes at launch. All the maps are set in a futuristic metropolis named Knockout City, and each map also features various environmental hazards which can knock a player out. The modes announced include Team KO, which is a variant of team deathmatch, Diamond Dash, in which players must collect diamonds dropped by defeated enemies, and Ball-Up, a four-versus-four mode in which the player must throw their teammates to eliminate enemies. The player can also form a Crew of maximum 32 players.

It is set to be released for Microsoft Windows, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X and Series S on May 21, 2021.
