Launched initially in 2015 on PC and PS4, and available today on many platforms, Rocket League is an atypical game, which has a rather unique style of play since it is about participating in football matches. , but in vehicles. A game that has sold several million copies worldwide, and which is now free-to-play for a few months now.
Rocket League also on iOS and Android
Obviously, like the majority of big hits today offered in free-to-play (or not) such as PUBG, Call of Duty or Fortnite, Rocket League will be offered in a whole new mobile form. Indeed, Psyonix today confirmed the development of Rocket League Sideswipe, an episode designed to be played on our Android and iOS smartphones.
A Rocket League Sideswipe expected later this year, which will be downloadable for free. Starting today, players located in Australia and New Zealand can join an alpha trial phase on Android. For the others, we will have to wait a little longer.
The developer promises a Rocket League as intense as ever, but completely redesigned for a mobile experience. The players will therefore face each other from a whole new perspective here, with 1v1 or 2v2 matches. The matches will also be quite short, since they will last only two short minutes.
New touch controls will obviously be part of the celebration, and we will find the possibility of graveling the ranks in a world ranking, without forgetting many customization options, and a matchmaking system for competitive online play. Still a few months to wait, before being able to benefit from Rocket League in any situation.
