Surprise ! Knockout City will release day one in Xbox Game Pass Ultimate through EA Play! The dodgeball game is expected to be played on all old and new generation consoles as well as on the PC on May 21, and can be played at no additional cost for subscribers to Microsoft’s premium service.
Knockout City is a multiplayer title where you compete against the prisoner ball in private or ranked matches. With its colorful and festive artistic direction, the next production to be released under the EA Originals label is meant to be fun and easily accessible. Five different maps and a variety of online modes are available to start with. In a duel or on a team, you need to master the intricacies of the six types of balls that are designed to emerge victorious. Gain experience and unlock customization items for your character.
The developers also announce that special events will be held in the first few weeks of marketing. They also congratulate themselves on the success of the beta, which has been downloaded no less than a million times. The arrival of the title in Xbox Game Pass Ultimate will certainly make it possible to see a significant influx from the launch. Note that crossplay and cross-save are already confirmed.
It is not common for Electronic Arts to sell their titles directly through EA Play. In fact, the American publisher has a more expensive “Pro” version that is exclusive to the PC and benefits from the games as soon as they are released. A first one that could perhaps spark a more general movement. As a reminder: Knockout City is also available for $ 19.99.
