Knockout City was previously published by Electronic Arts when the game launched in May 2021. Velan Studios, the developer behind Knockout City, will take over publishing responsibilities going forward. This also means that the game no longer requires console players to have online memberships like PS Plus, Xbox Live Gold, or Nintendo Switch Online in order to play. Those who previously purchased the full game prior to today can receive an exclusive Loyalty Royalty Bundle upon logging in to the game after June 1, 2022.
The Season 6 update also introduces a handful of new content and customizations, including the return of the Brawl Pass, which features 100 levels of unlockable rewards. With the new season also comes a new special ball called the Boomerang Ball, which can return to the player once thrown. The Hideout has also been upgraded with new activities and platforming options as well. You can find out about all the latest changes in the Knockout City Season 6 patch notes.
Knockout City is now available for free on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, and is backwards compatible and enhanced on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S.
