Rocket League adding basketball mode
The video game smash hit Rocket League has been delivering chaotic, fun soccer gameplay featuring cars instead of human players for months now, but Psyonix Studios is set to switch up the pitch with a brand new mode.
The official Rocket League Twitter account has teased a new mode being developed for the game, which appears to transform the soccer field into a basketball court, even going so far as to switch the traditional goals into hoops. That major change would put an emphasis on the game’s aerial play (for those uninitiated to Rocket League, the player-controlled cars can jump into the air, juggling and knocking the ball around mid-air).
Psyonix hasn’t unveiled more about the new upcoming mode or when players can expect it, but it comes as part of the studio’s continued stream of content updates to the game since its launch last year on PlayStation 4 and PC and earlier this year on Xbox One. For more on Psyonix’s current Rocket League content plans to continue supporting the game, as well as a look back at the initial success of the downloadable title, check out an interview with Psyonix’s Jeremy Dunham on the Kinda Funny Gamescast.
Check out a peek at the new mode above. Rocket League has introduced other big and small additions before, including car skins like the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Batmobile and the Back to the Future DeLorean. Rocket League is now available on the PS4, Xbox One, and Windows PC.
