Knockout City is having a double XP weekend
EA and Velan Studios have announced a double XP weekend for Knockout City.
Starting tomorrow, June 11th, until June 14th, players can level up at twice the usual speed. This is the perfect time to quickly move through those Street Ranks and unlock new Crew and player cosmetics.
In other news, developer Velan Studios has made a number of changes to matchmaking to ensure that players end up in games with lower ping. To start with, the time it takes for the matchmaking system to expand acceptable ping matches in Street Play has been increased. While in League Play, the time to reach a max ping match has been extended from 60 seconds to eight minutes and the matchmaking system will now try to match with players one rank above or below after a certain time.
“This means that you may wait for more time for a match, but the chances of you finding a low-ping match are much, much higher,” the developer added.
Knockout City is available now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
