Psyonix has announced Rocket League’s promised basketball mode, Rocket League Hoops, will arrive as part of a free update on April 26th. It’s pretty much what you’d expect, pass the ball from car to car while driving to the hoop, literally. This will change the game’s mechanics as well, though, as those fancy trick and wall shots are now even more important. It’s a two-on-two mode, so only 4 cars on screen at one time.
The add-on includes one new basketball specific arena, but there’s more to upgrade. There’s a physics tweak to make the ball behave more like you would expect, and you can quick save replays and as well as rename them to help you remember which game your awesome dunk was slammed in. There will be some paid content coming as well.
