It will be released on Nintendo Switch, Windows PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.

Crossplay will be fully supported on the game regardless of what platform you are using.

CATCH ME IF YOU CAN - Perfect your timing and catch an oncoming ball

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.

It’s easy to pick up and play thanks to familiar controls, but practice is key to becoming a champion.

WATCH YOUR STEP - The locations can be ad dangerous as your opponents

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!
