Knockout City coming Day One to Xbox Game Pass


It’s the right call, they had 2 bombs recently with Plants vs Zombies and another game I don’t remember because they were asking the full price for a f2p-like game.

Day 1 EA titles have begun… makes Battlefield 6 absolutely inevitable.

FIFA and MADDEN would be the bigger gets, expecially if BF6 is next gen only. We shall see…:eyes:


As someone who is used to buying most games but has to convince friends to take the leap, I love how gamepass just gives new multiplayer experiences constantly.


Yep, this actually is my favorite aspect of Game Pass. My best friend and I used to play on PS4 last-gen, but he didn’t buy many games and also didn’t have Plus. So we were kinda “stuck” to f2p titles. Fast forward to the current-gen, he ended up purchasing a Series X alongside me because I also had an Xbox One and kept showing him the wonder of Game Pass. We now play so many paid games together because of the variety and instant-multiplayer aspect of Game Pass Ultimate. It’s really good for gamers who want to keep it affordable like my friend.


PC too?

Here’s an interesting question:

Does Knockout City have PlayStation marketing rights? Because it featured pretty heavily on the last State of Play.

I always thought that this game would be F2P.

No, it appeared also on the Nintendo Direct and in a previous Xbox Wire blog post.

I’m sure EA is happy with the EA Play deal by the way of things.

My assumption would be EA saw abysmal pre-order numbers for Knockout and was happy to get a quick check for it to launch on Gamepass.

Not saying BF6 won’t launch on Gamepass, but I just don’t see the connection between those two games.

Knockout City will be available to all Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members at launch on May 21 for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S


yes because EA Play is on Gamepass PC now as well :slight_smile:

It’s launching on EA Play, not Gamepass, that’s just a result of EA Play being on Gamepass. So chances are EA did this themselves knowing the game needs a big pool of a userbase right from the start and they aren’t willing to make it F2P for now at least.

I hope this is the case, but PC is not mentioned on the article.

I’m putting my money on FIFA 22 and Battlefield 6 will hit GP day 1
