“Thank you, brawlers, for making the Knockout City game launch and Block Party an amazing ten-day event that surpassed expectations,” the devs say. “This party was unforgettable in many ways, and we’re so excited to see the support and positivity pouring in from you, our community! Since launch, we’ve seen 5 million new brawlers join us in matches, there’s been amazing— and unexpected— gameplay, hundreds of thousands of Crews were formed, over half a billion KOs landed, millions of hours of gameplay were watched, and—dare we say it?—thousands of friendships were made along the way. Who knew you could bond over hitting one another in the face with a dodgeball?”
Knockout City seems to have been gaining players left and right, as it only passed two million players last week. Its initial free trial is over, but new players can still try it out for free up until Street Rank 25; it’s also available with Xbox Game Pass.
