From Rooftop Rumbles to the Concussion Yard, Knockout City gives players an arsenal of balls to take down opponents in style. Players will be able to ride solo in a Face-Off match, or can outsmart opponents with their team in 3v3 Team KO, 3v3 Diamond Dash, or 4v4 Ball-Up Brawl. Free-for-alls with its KO Chaos mode are also available, as are private matches in any playlist.

The game will come out on May 21, 2021 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam, Origin, and the Epic Games Store. All versions will feature full cross-play and cross progression.

Note that players will have access to a free trial for a limited time that has a playable version of the game at launch.
