Hey there, PlayStation brawlers! He’s your informant on the inside. I’m on the roof of Velan Studios HQ and I’m happy to report that Operation: Season 8 Reveal is a complete success. I just pulled the season 8 announcement blueprint straight from the Viper database! I’m just chilling here waiting for my helicopter to pick me up… but in the meantime, let me cut you a deal. Here’s a look at what’s coming to Knockout City in Season 8: High Society Heist!
Spray the pursuers with the poison bullet
A brand new special ball has been added to your repertoire in High Society Heist, and it’s sure to leave your enemies furious! The poison bullet is loaded with noxious gas that escapes each time it hits a brawler or surface. This dangerous green gas is capable of knocking out a crowd in seconds, and the higher the charge level of the bullet, the bigger the cloud grows!
This is our first version of a dodgeball that creates lingering area-of-effect danger, and the poisonous ball shines best in the hands of those who can both thrive in the chaos and anticipate to control the unfolding. of the battle.
New “Brags” to show off your stats
We’re giving brawlers a new way to show off with Brags, a new unlock found in your customization menu! Leave your calling card with a new gear type that adds a border and title to your name before and after each game.
There are even Brags that show your dodge stats! Do you want to prove that you are the master of the Passing? How about flexing the KDR of that last match you just won? You can “favorite” Brags to rotate them randomly and show off your dodgebrawl prowess in this season and beyond!
Meet the Red Hand Crew
High Society Heist is such an exciting theme to see take over Knockout City. We already live and brawl in a gorgeous, retro-futuristic stylized world, and now we can lean even deeper into the neon-lit glitz and glamor of Roaring Twenties iconography…and the gritty, mysterious underbelly. Well, you can’t pull off a heist without a ragtag crew of specialists targeting a golden macguffin, and the Red Hand Crew bring style in spades.
The Red Hand Crew’s outfits and accessories will give brawlers some truly unique looks to play with, from sultry leader Voxanne Valentine’s feather boa and flapper dress to the hulking robotic form of mechanical strongman Mugshot. I think The Shadow, the crew’s mysterious secret specialist, might be my favorite of the bunch – between the ethereal effects around their faces and their growling, intimidating vigilante voices, they’re a real show stopper!
Chase is on the case
Commissioner Chase is back after her starring role in Season 4 to pursue the Red Hand Crew, and now she’s sporting an all-new look Brawlers can purchase to play as themselves.
To find out all about his adventures, don’t miss the Deep Space Dispatch in the Brawl Pass! I guarantee that fans of the Knockout City world are going to be shaken with each new reveal of this spectacular noir radio drama.
Having finally tracked the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to Knockout City, the dastardly duo of Bebop and Rocksteady are here to duck!
These heinous henchmen of Shredder are the Foot Clan’s finest fighters and the right-wing mutants to every evil scheme hatched by the old Chrome Dome. The TMNT Villains Pack will equip you with everything you need to be your own villain! Along with full character outfits from the clumsy sluggers, you’ll also get rockin’ player icons, a slew of Brags, and two incredibly intimidating intro poses that will have them shaking in their shells!
Crush the Ninja Turtles as super rivals Bebop and Rocksteady with the new TMNT Villains Pack, available from PlayStation Store for $19.99.
