Gameplay Features

Rule the city through lightning-fast multiplayer matches featuring mind-blowing dodgeball mechanics.

Increase the strength of your attack by passing to power up dodgeballs, targeting your opponents with a variety of specialized balls, or “Balling Up” at any time to get thrown (yes, like a ball) by teammates.


Assemble an All-Star dodgeball Crew with your friends for multiplayer matches in a seamless cross-play experience.

Together, knock out opponents in 3v3, 4v4, or free-for-all matches, and dominate as a team to unlock distinctive, Crew-only rewards.

ASSEMBLE YOUR CREW - Line-up and customise the look of your crew

Customisation is everything in Knockout City - create your brawler, from clothing to body type, and add unique KO Effects, Gliders, Taunts, and Victory and Defeat Poses.

Plus, unlock Crew rewards like vehicles and logos.


Battle it out with other Crews across dynamic maps all over the city.

Dodgeball thrives between skyscraper rooftops, across busy streets—and even at the local construction site.

While you’re dodging dodgeballs, watch out for moving cars, rooftop drops, and even a wrecking ball or two.

MAP IT OUT - Concussion Yard looks to have plenty of tricks up its sleeve

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.

Get the job done with a variety of Special Balls, from the zero-gravity Moon Ball to the ticking Bomb Ball and the trapped Cage Ball.

And remember, if there's no ball nearby - just Ball Up and get a teammate to throw you!
