Knockout City Hits Five Million Players in Two Weeks


In what amounts to a real knockout for the title, Velan Studios and EA Originals’ Knockout City has reached a five million player milestone in just two weeks.

The latest post from the Knockout City blog (which can be read here) had to say the following:

[testimonials user=” email=” name=” position=” photo=”]”THANK YOU, brawlers, for making the Knockout City game launch and Block Party an amazing ten-day event that surpassed expectations! This party was unforgettable in many ways, and we’re so excited to see the support and positivity pouring in from you, our community! Since launch, we’ve seen 5 million new brawlers join us in matches, there’s been amazing— and unexpected— gameplay, hundreds of thousands of Crews were formed, over half a billion KOs landed, millions of hours of gameplay were watched, and—dare we say it?—thousands of friendships were made along the way. Who knew you could bond over hitting one another in the face with a dodgeball?”[/testimonials]

Taking a page from the world of dodgeball, Knockout City is a team-based competitive multiplayer that allows players to wack their enemies with a ball. Different balls are available for use, including the jump-enhancing Moon Ball and the explosive Bomb Ball.
