Knockout City Update 1.40 Patch Notes (1.4)

  • Previously completed crew contracts should now count as progress for the “Season Reward” crew contract. Your progress should update in this contract when you boot up the game next—please let us know if you continue to experience issues!
  • Improved match loading logic to fix an issue where some players could not load into the match until after the intro cinematic
  • Fixed an issue where fake-throwing a Sniper Ball at full charge while swapping enemies would erroneously keep the full charge
  • Fixed a rare issue where a player’s Street Rank would be displayed as level 1 upon match completion

EA will be posting full patch notes soon so we’ll update this post when it goes live. Knockout City is out now PC, PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.

Update: EA has now posted the full patch notes on the official site.

Features

  • Hero Bonus: Now, when you join a match that is already in-progress, you will receive a 100 XP Hero Bonus for completing the match! Remember that for matches you join in-progress, a loss will NOT be counted against you in League Play or even in Contracts that may be tracking win streaks. If you win, though, it WILL count as a win for League Play or streaks! So, together with the Hero Bonus, there is no reason not to help out the team you joined and finish the match!
  • We’ve continued to make improvements to finding the best data center region to use for matchmaking. The game now sends more information about its connection to multiple regions so that our servers can be smarter about finding the best region. We’ve also increased the number of parameters that we can tweak on our servers. This lets us make improvements with a faster turnaround time as we learn more about player experiences.
  • An updated Quit Match pop-up makes sure players know that quitting a match will make them lose out on match rewards and receive a quit penalty.
