Xbox will offer lucrative rewards in the launch week

EA’s executive Rachel Crowley shed light on everything players can expect with a blog post. Knock City will see a range of amazing events in the first week. Players can build up a crew of 4 and take on a wide range of crews that roam within this city. The title will never run dry on maps and locations as the entire city serves as a playground. You can take up fights on Rooftop Rumble, Concussion yard, Backyard Alley Brawls, and so on.

The title will feature a massive range of weapons that gamers can use to overpower enemies. Weapons, in this case, will be various types of balls that will offer unique interactions.

“You’ve got your pick of the lot. Keep it classic with the Standard Ball or blow them away with the Bomb Ball. Trap rivals in a Cage Ball to throw them off the edge of the map — or just lock-on from across the map with the Sniper Ball. Maybe you’ll pick up the most dangerous weapon of the cross play beta: the Moon Ball. Knock ‘em sky-high for an easy pick-off or use the Moon Ball to defy gravity when you need a lift. And if you run out of balls, you’ve still got one more option: become the ball yourself. “
