Knockout City begins Season 3: H@CKED today, with new maps, battle pass, and playlists

From Press Release:

Knockout City, the dodgeball-inspired title from Velan Studios and EA Originals, launched Season 3 – H@CKeD today for players worldwide. Season 3 challenges dodgebrawlers to navigate a decommissioned jail yard after their world has been hacked by Z3R0, an all-seeing eye which monitors the television, billboards and even the Brawlers’ outfits. The new season gives players a chance to investigate who, or what, Z3R0 is. Players can also level up and unlock exclusive items to show off on the field now via Brawl Pass.

New gameplay content for Knockout City Season 3 includes:

  • 4 Brand New Playlists and Events – Dodgebrawlers will discover new modes and fresh twists on existing ones throughout the season. These events will award Holobux, XP, or event tickets that can be used to buy cosmetics in an event shop.

  • New Weekly Crew Contracts with 18 New and Exclusive Crew Cosmetic Rewards – Players can investigate the new Crew Cosmetic: Crew Horns, which are a set of unique and wild horns that play as your vehicle skids into view in the Match Intro cinematics. Additionally, new weekly Brawl Pass Contracts and new Training Level and Training Contracts are around every corner.

  • A New Map: Lockdown Throwdown – This abandoned jail yard still has some of its security systems online! Spotlight Drones patrol the prison, and any brawlers caught in their path will trigger a Security Turret that will pop up and fire a Cage Ball towards the player. This mechanic can be used to gain an advantage on an opponent by throwing them off the map, or a player can be purposefully spotted and attempt to catch the Cage Ball to use against the opposing team.

  • The All-New Brawl Pass – Starting in Season 3, Street Rank won’t be the only way you can level up and unlock exclusive cosmetics to show off on the field! Introducing: Brawl Pass!  Brawl Pass has 100 levels with unique rewards to score along the way. Levels unlock as you finish matches, earn XP, and complete Brawl Pass Contracts. Each week, you’ll see 6 new weekly Brawl Pass Contracts that you can track progress on as you play, and leveling up will grant exclusive new Cosmetics, Crew Vehicles, Energy Drinks, Style Chips, Holobux and more!

  • Additional New Content – A new energy drink, player voices, Chonky locations, bundles and shop items and more.

A new Crew Vehicle for Season 3, Motorcycles, come in five various styles:

  • Legendary – Ghost Rider

  • Epic – Tech Bike

  • Rare – Boba Biker

  • Rare – Crypto Chopper

  • Rare – Barracuda
