Knockout City Heatwave Event Starts Next Week With Popsicles And Ice Cream

Knockout City's new event, Heatwave, brings new items, contracts, and game modes to the game next week.


Knockout City, the competitive dodgeball game, is getting a summer-themed event called Heatwave. Announced during GameSpot's Play For All Live stream, the Heatwave event--which runs from June 22 through July 5-- will add new items, contracts, and playlists to the game.

Players can earn new items by collecting Ice Pops hidden throughout the Knockout City matches, which can be used to unlock new items, like an Ice Cream Truck glider or an intro-pose where their character lounges in a beach chair. Players can also earn Heatwave tickets by playing, which can be used in the Heatwave Event shop. Lastly, anyone who completes all of the Heatwave limited-time contracts will unlock a Legendary Ultimate Hologram, the Fire Hydrant.

There will also be two new playlists during the event: Party Face-Off on June 22 and Triple Team Chaos on June 29. Party Face-Off adds all special balls into the normal 1v1 setup. Triple Team Chaos sees three teams of two in a free for all, with the first team to get 15 KOs winning the match.

Knockout City launched with a successful free trial period, where over 5 million players played the game. It now offers a free trial up to level 25 for new players and has had multiple updates--including a new game mode--since it launched in May.

GameSpot may get a commission from retail offers.
