Competitive platforming dodgeball game Knockout City is turning free-to-play a year after its original launch.

Available on PC, PlayStation, Xbox, and the Nintendo Switch, Knockout City launched last year under EA‘s publishing, and is now on its fifth and final season for the year. As the game’s first year comes to an end, developer Velan Studios is hoping to make a few changes, including taking back publishing duties from EA itself and making the game completely free to play. While there’s no precise date as to when the game will transition into its second year, the company says the shift will take place this spring, so those looking to try out the title will be able to do so completely free of charge once season six begins.

Of course, Velan Studios also took time to thank its current players that paid for the game. “With that being said, we do want to take a moment to thank our day one fans for purchasing Knockout City and supporting us from the very beginning,” the company’s announcement reads. “Your dedication and loyalty motivates us every day to continue to build our world, and we couldn’t have gotten this far without you. Our first priority will always be our community, and we’ve built a special Season 6 Loyalty Bundle specifically for those who have already purchased the game before Season 6 launches that’ll include exclusive legendary cosmetics, XP boosts, and 2,000 Holobux.”

For those interested, you can learn more about Knockout City and its upcoming roadmap over on the game’s official site.

Elsewhere in gaming, The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask is finally coming to the Nintendo Switch.
