Game details

Frantic and Fun

Rule the city through lightning-fast multiplayer matches featuring mind-blowing dodgeball mechanics. Increase your attack by passing to power up dodgeballs, targeting your opponents with a variety of specialized balls, or “balling up” at any time to get thrown by teammates!

Crew Up

Assemble an All-Star dodgeball Crew with your friends for multiplayer matches in a seamless cross-play experience! Together, knock out opponents in 3v3, 4v4, or free-for-all matches. Pass, throw, and strategize to dominate as a team and unlock distinctive, Crew-only rewards!

Define Your Style

Show off your status and unique look through character and Crew designs with expansive character creation options. Customize your appearance, gear, and attitude, from body type and hairstyle to a custom glider and Crew vehicle to win, lose, and taunt animations.

Take On Knockout City

Battle it out with other Crews across dynamic maps all over the city. Each map’s special features make every match an intense, unexpected experience. Dodgeball thrives in back alleys with pneumatic tubes, on skyscraper rooftops, across busy streets—and even at the local burger joint and construction sites. While you’re dodging dodgeballs, watch out for moving cars, rooftop drops, and even a wrecking ball or two.

Strikingly Fresh Yet Familiar

It’s easy to pick up and play thanks to familiar controls, but practice is key to becoming a champion. On a level playing field, only the most skilled ballers stand out from the crowd. Use your knowledge to master the intricacies of the game for spectacular KOs.

I’m so excited for this

Here you can find more information on ranked play:

There will be a 10-day free trial period starting from launch, called Block Party:

Hope we will be able to fly to New Zealand for an early download. Of all weekends I’m moving house on this one so I mostly miss the launch window lol

I used the Xbox app to pre-download already!

This actually looks pretty cool to me. I hope it’s good.


Lol same!

It’s sick mate, so much depth

I’m curious to see how much depth there actually is, and how competitive it can be, as I didn’t play it yet. Did you have a chance to try the beta?

Yeh I played I quite a bit, happy to answer any questions :slight_smile:

We have to do community coop/multiplayer here in xboxera forums.

We will need a common MP thread so that people can call for coop and join in.

I think for MP a Discord server would make more sense, but I believe the mods have already discussed that it’d be hard to moderate.

Anyway, for this game in particular, the official Discord is pretty active right now and I imagine it will only get more so after launch.


No - I mean, even a forum thread will do. People should be able to just announce that they are playing some MP at a particular timeslot.

A couple of folks here were trying to do MP, but are afraid of doing MP due to different circumstances.
