EA has announced Knockout City, a new futuristic dodgeball game, where you can team up and battle other crews in team-based multiplayer dodgeball battles.
Matches will include a variety of special balls and will be played on the streets, rooftops and alleys laid out across the city:
- Rooftop Rumble – Face off atop two impossibly tall skyscrapers. Dodge across the sky bridge or break out your glider to rain dodgeballs on the other Crew from above.
- Concussion Yard – Navigate buildings under construction, while avoiding the wrecking ball to bring home a win.
- Knockout Roundabout – It’s all about playing in the street, because riding on cars (and rolling beneath them) is what makes this hotspot interesting.
Players will be able to customize their appearance with plenty of body types, hair styles, outfits, taunts and more. There will also be multiple ways to earn and unlock rewards and gear.
Knockout City is scheduled to arrive on May 21, with full cross-play support on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC. It will be backwards compatible on the Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5, with enhancements.
Fans can get an early look this weekend on Steam, as EA is running a closed beta. Head on over to sign up.
