Ready for some dodge BRAWL? Velan Studios

Knockout City, the free-to-play volley-ball brawler game by Velan Studios, received an important update today. Patch 8.1 went live a few hours ago and it brought changes to how Taunt works in the game. You can also expect a handful of bug fixes and improvements.

The listing of the game on EA Origin has been removed. Players will now transfer to either Steam or Epic Games Store. Speaking of EGS, it now supports the game natively and you can confirm it by seeing a unique platform icon on the Social menu.

You can read the patch notes below.

  • 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.
  • Based on brawler feedback, we’ve removed the cooldown period for using Taunts. You can now Taunt as often and frequently as you like! Just remember that you can still use the “Mute Taunts” feature to temporarily or permanently disable Taunting in your game, if you so choose.
  • Fixed an issue where the tutorial message for using the Glider in the Hideout would not trigger.
  • Fixed several issues preventing the virtual keyboard from functioning properly when using the Steam Deck.
  • Fixed several Scoreboard statistics for Snowbrawl Fight: Freeze Tag to track “Enemies Frozen” and “Allies Thawed” properly.
  • Fixed an issue preventing some Crew Logos from correctly previewing the Back Logo in the Brawl Shop.
  • Fixed an issue where Soda Ball and Bomb Ball explosions were not properly triggering their VFX or SFX on the Nintendo Switch.
  • Fixed several issues preventing items from being granted to inventory after making a Holobux or Bundle purchase on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
  • Fixed an issue that erroneously offered Hideout Ball styles as individual items for purchase in the Brawl Shop.
  • Updated copyright info and legal text.

You can read the complete patch notes via the official site.
