Rocket League Dev Teases New Basketball Mode

Psyonix Studios have revealed that players of Rocket League’s will soon be able to slam-drunk, following a recent Twitter image from the developer depicting the game’s quite literal sportscars taking the field in a brand new basketball mode allegedly named Rocket League Hoops.

 

The mode’s switch from field to court seems to have come with a much larger hoop, rather than the default mode’s neon-lit goals. No further details have surfaced as of yet, but judging by the company’s tweet about March Madness being “just around the corner”, players could be shooting hoops relatively soon.

Psyonix Studios also recently tweeted a collaboration with Dying Light, and will be introducing vehicles inspired by the game this summer.

  1. I got Rocket League when it was free on Playstation with PS Plus and I can fully say that even though I didn’t pay for it, they deserve my money. So much so that I bought it for Xbox One and I bought digital codes for friends of mine to play it as well. It’s such a simple and fun game and I welcome the idea of new modes of play. They keep making them, I’ll keep playing them.

  2. Their use of frequent, small upgrades such as new vehicles and modes really adds to the longevity of Rocket League too; something that a lot of other games just don’t attain so well, either by making their DLC almost necessary for the game to be enjoyable, or because of a hefty price tag. When that happens, it’s easy for audiences to feel manipulated to a certain extent, and the fact that Rocket League refrains from doing both really makes the game more endurably enjoyable, I think.
