Knockout City Season 2 is set to debut next week, and EA has released an all-new launch trailer to get fans pumped up in the meantime! The new season will feature a new theme, "Fight at the Movies." Season 2 will feature the Holowood Drive-In map, which includes areas like the Cathedral of Horror and the Bridge of Love, both inspired by classic movies. Players can also look forward to movie-inspired gear, and the new Soda Ball, which blinds players with syrup. Of course, players can also look forward to new playlists, a new season of League Play, new cosmetics, and a lot more.
The launch trailer can be found at the top of this page, and in the Tweet embedded below.

All in all, this is a pretty effective trailer for Knockout City's new season! Continuing with the movie theme, the trailer features an impersonation of the classic "movie trailer announcer" voice, and a grainy filter meant to evoke old-school films. It also showcases the game's new map, cosmetics, and more. Thankfully, fans won't have to wait much longer to experience it for themselves!
Those looking for more information on the game's new season can check out a livestream July 23rd on the official Knockout City Twitch channel, featuring several members of the game's team. The stream will begin at 4:30 ET, and will include the game's director, technical designer, and more.
