Knockout City received an official gameplay trailer this week, highlighting its frantic, over-the-top, dodgeball action. The three-minute video also displays a bit of the game’s off-kilter humor and deep customization options.
Our early preview of Knockout City found it to be an interesting combination of twitch gameplay and goofy antics – a description that still fits with its latest showing. You can check out the ball-dodging action below:
“Knockout City is easy to pick up and play, but practice is key to victory in this incredibly deep and highly competitive experience that will smack players in the face with surprises,” EA said of its upcoming title. “From Knockout Roundabout’s traffic-clogged main streets, to the dizzying rooftop heights of the city’s tallest buildings in Rooftop Rumble, there’s only one way to settle scores – dodgeBRAWL.”
Developed by Velan Studios, Knockout City will let you jump into team-based dodgeball action, using six different types of balls to attack the other team. Adding to the chaos is the ability to turn yourself into a ball – a technique that meshes well with its odd sense of humor.
Knockout City will launch on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch on May 21. It’ll also be playable on Xbox Series X|S and PS5 through backward compatibility. There will also be a free trial available on May 21, giving you a chance to check out the action before buying the full game.
