Knockout City is making the switch to free-to-play

Velan Studios has announced plans to switch multiplayer dodgeball game Knockout City to a free-to-play model with the release of the game’s sixth season.

In addition to moving to free-to-play, Velan Studios revealed that it will be taking over publishing duties for the game from EA during the “first few seasons of Year 2.”

“We couldn’t have introduced Knockout City to the world without the incredible support of EA Originals, but now as we switch to free-to-play, the natural next step is for us to take over publishing responsibilities and work even more closely with our community,” the developer added. “We have exciting plans for Knockout City, and bringing publishing in-house will allow us to fully realize our vision for the long-term future of this game. There’s so much to look forward to, because this is just the beginning.”

As a thank you to all players who have purchased the game, Velan Studios is handing out a Season 6 Loyalty Bundle that includes exclusive legendary cosmetics, XP boosts, and 2,000 Holobux.

Before all this though, Season 5 of Knockout City will get underway on March 1st. The 12 weeks of the season will be split into two-week events that will offer a selection of playlists, contracts, rewards, and more based on the game’s first year. There will also be a playable jukebox, a trophy cabinet, controller sensitivity improvements, and new seasonal contracts.

Knockout City is available now on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
