Knockout City will soon move to completely free-to-play and EA will become the publisher.
Developer Velan Studios announced in a blog post that it is taking over and will self-publish the dodgeball fighting game as it enters its second year on the market, effective when the game enters Season 6 on June 1.
Knockout City Season 5, which begins March 1, will feature less content due to the changes: there will be no new Brawl Pass, new maps or new balls, and there will also be fewer cosmetics and packs .

Velan Studios says this content reduction is only temporary and things will be back to normal by the beginning of Season 6.
“We’re really excited to bring our game to millions of new players around the world by completely removing the price tag,” Velan Studios wrote in the blog post.
“We couldn’t have introduced Knockout City to the world without the incredible support of EA Originals, but now that we’re moving to free-to-play, the natural next step is for us to assume responsibility. publish and work even more closely with our community.”
In our 9/10 reviewIGN said “Knockout City’s fantastic spin on dodgeball combat has surprising depth, making it one of the best team-based PvP games in years.”
