Red Beard Games and publisher Hi-Rez have announced that their new free to play third-person platform brawler Divine Knockout (DKO) will launch on PC, PlayStation and Xbox on December 6. The new gameplay trailer below was also published.
Early Access & F2P Release
The game will be free-to-play after the paid early access phase called Founders Season ends. During said Founders Season, you can play DKO by purchasing either the Founders ($24.99) or Ultimate ($49.99) Edition. Both of these editions come with a bundle of God unlocks and additional exclusive cosmetic, and also unlock the Chibi Susano Skin in SMITE on the platform where you purchased the Edition.
Once the Founders Season is over, Divine Knockout will be free to play, and is not expected to be pay to win based on other games by Hi-Rez (Smite).
About Divine Knockout
Set in a vibrant stylised world of gods and mythology, Divine Knockout is the “first third-person platform fighter”. Hurl boulders as Hercules, swing Excalibur as King Arthur, or wield Mjolnir as Thor.
“DKO is a world of expressive characters and destructible environments”, says Alexandre Grimonpont, Executive Producer at Red Beard Games. “Whether duelling 1v1 and 2v2 or experiencing 3v3 Arcade mode adventures across different maps and game modes, DKO is full of hype moments, impactful abilities, big ultimates, play-making moves and close calls. It’s a blast as a party game, and a competitive sweat-fest!”.
“We wanted everyone – no matter their skill level – to be able to hop in and play”, says Alex Cantatore, VP of Publishing. “Each god in DKO has a unique move set, with each ability mapped to a single button. Players can unleash devastating abilities with one press; no confusing combos required. DKO is all about timing, positioning and moment-to-moment choices – not button complexity. Hurl boulders as Hercules, unleash the might of Excalibur and wield Mjolnir with ease”.
DKO is currently in Closed Alpha testing and is available to wishlist via Steam, Epic Games Store and PlayStation. The game launches worldwide across all these platforms on December 6, in a paid format first.
