New Features and Improvements

Epic Games Version of Knockout City launched!

  • Brawlers of Knockout City playing on the Epic Games Store now have a natively-supported version of the game, including a unique platform icon on the Social menu.
  • As of Patch 8.1, Knockout City will no longer be listed on EA Origin; PC players using EA Origin are encouraged to switch over to Steam or Epic Games to continue playing Knockout City.

Taunt Cooldown Update

  • Based on brawler feedback, we’ve removed some of the recently-implemented restrictions on the cooldown period for using Taunts! Just remember that you can still use the “Mute Taunts” feature to temporarily or permanently disable Taunting in your game, if you so choose.
