During the "Block Party" period, not only will you be able to sample the game for free, but there's a whole bunch of elements happening in and out of the arena.

Livestreams, exclusive gear, community tournaments, and more are scheduled for the game's launch period.

Gameplay

We've had a couple of tasters to Knockout City, and the game really is something special.

The simple dodgeball element makes it incredibly easy to pick up and play.

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.
