New Visual Depth

Knockout City’s aesthetic style is a rich, youthful, futuristic look at a world infatuated with dodgeballs. The city is alive with vibrant city lights, holograms, and explosions. Thanks to the extra power of Xbox Series X|S, features have been added to help provide more visual depth within the already well-illuminated city.

Newly added features like area lights, ball lights, and particle lights help the city come alive. Improved global illumination and local light shadows are carefully balanced to provide you with a rich graphical experience that puts you right there in the city. The dynamic feel of light and shadows translates beautifully in frantic close combat or in leisurely stroll down back alleys.

Check out the way the shadows play on the surfaces of the buildings and down the alley in Back Alley Brawl:
