Knockout City Hits Xbox Game Pass Ultimate And EA Play On Day One

The "dodgebrawl" game will be available on day one through Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and EA Play.


Knockout City, the upcoming dodgeball-inspired action game from Electronic Arts, will be available on Xbox Game Pass Ultimate on day one. It'll also be available through EA Play on all supported platforms, so you can grab it on EA's own subscription service on PlayStation, Xbox, or PC or through Game Pass Ultimate on launch day, May 21.

EA Play is bundled with Game Pass Ultimate, the premium version of Game Pass that also includes Xbox Live Gold and other benefits. If you're an EA Play Pro member for PC, meanwhile, you'll get the Deluxe edition content for the "dodgebrawl" game, including a series of cosmetics and virtual currency. You can see a full rundown of the Deluxe edition content below.

All EA Play members on every platform will also receive the "Ready Up" costume, which will be automatically sent to their inventory.

For those who want to buy Knockout City outright, the game sells for $20 USD. This is the only option on Nintendo Switch, as the platform doesn't support EA Play or Game Pass.

The game's recent beta was a huge success, picking up 1 million downloads. You can see some of the other beta stats in the video above celebrating the milestones.

Inspired by dodgeball, Knockout City is a multiplayer game where players try to knock out other players using a ball, which can have all different types of special properties. The game is developed by Velan Studios, which is the team that made Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit.
