A deep progression system that provides hundreds of options for modifying your style based on the unique personality of you and your Crew.
A look at some of Knockout City’s maps where the different environments have unique mechanics for any scuffles that might occur.
Special Balls that keep gameplay interesting, like the Sniper Ball that locks onto targets from across the map, the Bomb Ball that will explode on your opponent and more.
A variety of modes to play, including 1v1 and Team KO featuring three-versus-three action.EA Press Release
