Velan Studios and EA Originals announced the next-gen upgrade for Knockout City. From November 2nd, the team-based Dodgeball title will be playable on Xbox Series X | S and PlayStation 5 with a smooth 120 FPS.
The latest update for next-gen consoles is available free of charge and offers the ability to display Knockout City in 4K resolution at 60 FPS. We can choose between performance and quality mode in the settings menu. The following options are available for the individual platforms:
PlayStation 5: Native 4K at 60 FPS or 1440p (upscaled to 4K) at 120 FPS
Xbox Series X: Native 4K at 60 FPS or 1620p (upscaled to 4K) at 120 FPS
Xbox Series S: 1440p at 60 FPS or 1080p at 120 FPS
With the additional power of the next-gen consoles, the development team at Velan Studios has improved the lighting – including new area, sphere and particle lights as well as global exposure and local light shadows. These improvements give the environment further contours that accentuate the play of light and shadow.
The upgrade also includes more faithful, sharper textures that were previously only available on the PC and Xbox One versions. This creates a more realistic environment with almost “touchable” surfaces.
Owners of Knockout City for PlayStation 4 or Xbox One can download the upgrade to the new version for free from the App Store. Players who originally purchased the title through Xbox Game Pass Ultimate or PlayStation Plus are also eligible for the free upgrade.
