Knockout City, the EA-published competitive “dodgebrawl” game from Velan Studios, will have a 10-day free trial on all platforms when it launches next Friday, 21st May.
The gist of Knockout City is that, in time-honoured dodgeball style, two teams of players (either 3v3 or 4v4) battle it out for supremacy by lobbing balls at each other. It’s an easy to understand premise with a vibrantly approachable visual sheen, putting it on a collision course with countless other offerings in the busy field of live-service sports and shooter games.
EA is doubtless hoping its 10-day free trial will put enough bums on seats and balls in hands to build a crucial player base from the off when Knockout City comes to PlayStation, Xbox, Switch and PC (via Origin, Steam, and the Epic Games Store) on 21st May – a challenge it’s already attempting to tackle by including the game on EA Play and Xbox Game Pass at launch.
