Knockout City will be getting patch 1.2 this week, which brings new game modes to Coin Hoders on June 8th, in addition to playlist updates for Season 1 and Week 3. So, Velan Studios gives a brief overview of the next week in Knockout City, including a brief description of patch 1.2, and a full patch note will be published later.
The blog post describes three highlights of upcoming patches, including reducing the chances of players participating in high ping matches. It also addresses a bug that plays the match audio before loading when joining an ongoing match. Another highlight is that closing the game no longer resets the mouse and keyboard settings.
A new game mode, Coin Hoarders, is a 3v3 purpose-based mode in which teams collect and hold eight coins placed around the map. Each player can hold up to 3 coins and will be dropped when the player is knocked out. A team wins a round by holding all eight coins at once and wins a match in two rounds. Coin Hoders will be added on June 8th at the beginning of the third week of Season 1.
