Looking to the next few Xbox games that are due to release, Xbox has shared more details on Knockout City ahead of its launch.

The new Gameplay Trailer showcases the chaotic gameplay and graphics and the Xbox Wire article details the upcoming cross-platform beta that's coming.

EA's Knockout City is due to launch on May 21st, 2021, on all major platforms.

In addition to this, Outriders is joining Xbox Game Pass on April 1st as a free title at launch. There isn't anything major coming out for a couple of weeks after this but Outriders, plus the GWG lineup should be enough to keep people busy.


Latest Game Updates

In addition to all this, Call of Duty: Warzone just received a huge update on Xbox consoles. It's just over 50GB in size, but it should actually reduce the overall size of both Modern Warfare and Warzone on Xbox consoles by just over 10GB.

It's not a lot, but it's a good start at optimising the title to make it a more acceptable size.
