Whelan Studios is a relatively new studio that was founded in 2016 and its first title was Mario Card Live: Home Circuit (2020), which was released for the Nintendo Switch. Now, his new game is an original project, which will be released by E.A. Originals will be released under the label. Knockout City promises to take the well-known “burned out” to a new level.
Knockout City can quickly seem like a third-person shooter, but it really does have a lot in common with fighting games. Dodge title is team based, with players throwing balls (or using teammates) and kicking opponents off the map to win points. You don’t have to worry about accuracy, because Knockout City automatically targets enemies within your sight. Importantly, pay attention to the indicators on the screen to increase your bids and dodge or catch incoming balls.
Positioning is just as important as time, so make sure you are in good places to knock out your opponents (and avoid knocking out). In the beginning there will be five levels, three of which we will play, each of which will change the way you approach the game with a unique configuration. It really depends on the game mode you are playing.
Players have two hearts before being knocked out. Regular burning balls end with the heart, while using another player as a ball will cause an immediate knockout and both hearts will drop.
The gameplay and dynamics are the same for all players. There are heroes with special abilities or unique moves that can distinguish them. When you enter the Knockout City Dodge Brawl arena you know what all the other players are capable of.
Regarding game modes, we have:
Diamond Dash– Confirmed knockout, in which knockout players drop three diamonds, which must be collected to get points.
Ball-up prowl– Use only teammates as balls to attack opponents!
Team KO- It’s a traditional “deadly game” with no extra motives or elaborate missions.
The game will feature upgrades on the PS5 and will come with extensive post-release support including new balls, maps, patterns, events, and cosmetics.
Knockout City costs 99 19.99 (R $ 108.49 in the current shift), but is initially available for free rating. Cross-play and cross-improvement are initially available on all platforms. Games for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S, Nintendo Switch and PC are coming on May 21st.
