Ready to dodge some balls and take it to the streets against your friends? Have some fun with Knockout City, a team-based competitive multiplayer game by developer Velan studios.

Your goal is simple, attack enemies from the opposing team by knocking them out with a ball. Taking the core rules of dodgeball, Knockout City adds some nice twists to the game, such as different ball types which give you special powers or abilities. Use bomb balls that explode on impact, or moon balls to jump super high around the arena. You can even throw other players as a ball too!

Dodge and catch balls avoid hazards, and glow up your character as you throw your way to victory in Knockout City through multiple online game modes, such as Team KO, deathmatch, and Diamond Dash. You can also form a crew of up to 32 players online.

Knockout City is available for the PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S and X, and the Nintendo Switch.

Define Your Style —Show off your status and unique look through character and Crew designs with expansive character creation options. Customize your appearance, gear, and attitude, from body type and hairstyle to a custom glider and Crew vehicle to win, lose, and taunt animations.

Take On Knockout City — Battle it out with other Crews across dynamic maps all over the city. Each map’s special features make every match an intense, unexpected experience. Dodgeball thrives in back alleys with pneumatic tubes, on skyscraper rooftops, across busy streets—and even at the local burger joint and construction sites. While you’re dodging dodgeballs, watch out for moving cars, rooftop drops, and even a wrecking ball or two.

Strikingly Fresh Yet Familiar — It’s easy to pick up and play thanks to familiar controls, but practice is key to becoming a champion. On a level playing field, only the most skilled ballers stand out from the crowd. Use your knowledge to master the intricacies of the game for spectacular KOs.
