FREE TASTER: Enjoy a 10-day free Knockout City trial before you choose to purchase the full game

This gives you a great chance to test out the full game before making a purchase.

It will include:

  • New Map - BackAlley Brawl
  • New Ball - Sniper Ball
  • New Styles - Epic Customisations
  • New Playlist - 1v1 Face-off

We also wouldn't be surprised if Knockout City follows the likes of Fall Guys, Worms Rumble and Destruction AllStars in being included in June's PS Plus free games, given as it featured so prominently during February's State of Play.

10-day free trial available

The studio has also announced an in-game Block Party, granting a 10-day free trial to all.
