Weekend Console Download Deals for May 21: Knockout City free trial

Knockout City is out today and you have ten days to try the full game absolutely free!


It's not often that a new game will release and allow players more than a week to try it out for free. That's what we're getting with Knockout City, the dodgeball multiplayer game from EA and Velan Studios. They're so determined to build a base for Knockout City that for its first ten days, the game will be available to try out absolutely free. You've got nothing to lose with a free trial, so pick your console of choice and give it a shot. (It's free to try on PC, too, so look for those links in the Weekend PC Download Deals feature in just a few minutes.)

If you're not convinced right now that Knockout City is at least worth a flyer, take some time to read our review. It may convince you otherwise.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
