After taking players on a trip to the movies for Season 2, Knockout City is getting a techno theme for its third season, aptly titled “[email protected]” The theme of Season 3 will center on a mysterious new character called Z3RO, who’s taken control of Knockout City for reasons not yet clear.

Players will be able to uncover 11 Deep Space Dispatches when leveling up the season’s Brawl Pass, regardless of the Premium upgrade, which is audio logs in the form of transmissions that provide new lore for both the DJ on the Moon and Z3RO. Be prepared to invest some time into your Brawl Pass if you want to dive deeper into what’s happening in Knockout City.

A new map called Lockdown Throwdown will put players inside the yard of a prison stationed on an island surrounded by cliffs. Spotlight Drones and Security Turrets pose new threats during matches. Spotlight Drones alert Turrets when they find you, and Turrets will then try to trap you inside a Cage Ball.
