Knockout Metropolis, considered one of 2021’s shock hits that I can not get sufficient of, is getting a bundle of latest stuff when Season 2 begins in July. Introduced at the moment in a weblog publish from developer Velan Studios, Knockout Metropolis Season 2 will kick off on July 27 with a brand new particular ball kind, a brand new map, particular occasions (just like the Heatwave occasion happening proper now), contracts, and cosmetics.

For those who’ve been dodgebrawling as a lot as I’ve, a brand new particular ball and map will sound fairly good proper about now. Counting the Jukebox Junction map added within the recreation’s first few weeks, there are solely six complete places. Every map has its personal gimmick that may considerably impression how a match performs out (Galaxy Burger’s trash chutes and Knockout Roundabout’s visitors come to thoughts), so I am desirous to see what else Velan has up its sleeve. Possibly it is time to brawl on the seashore with sand that impacts leaping?

That is all outlined within the up to date official roadmap that roughly outlines the subsequent six months of KO Metropolis:

The brand new particular ball kind is much more intriguing. There is a fairly good selection with the present pool of 5 (Moon Ball, Sniper Ball, Cage Ball, Multi Ball, and Bomb Ball), however the group has positively discovered its favorites (and least-favorites) since launch. I share among the complaints I’ve learn concerning the Sniper Ball slowing down the motion an excessive amount of or the Multi Ball being too simple to spam. It is unclear if Velan has plans to steadiness current balls, so I would like to get extra ball varieties within the combine ASAP to extend the probability of taking part in with one I truly get pleasure from.
