A lot has happened since the original Rocket League was released in 2015. The still-growing esports scene has evolved and now excites tens of thousands of fans week after week. Psyonix now wants to take the Autoball action to another level.
Fürs Smartphone: Rocket League Sideswipe
Everything became more compact, faster and relied on touch screen control. Rocket League Sideswipe will be a free mobile affiliate that adapts a little bit to well-known rules.
The game is played either against one person or two against two people, the time limit is 2 minutes. This will make the already fast-paced and entertaining game of Rocket League even faster. As the first screenshots of the official announcement suggest, there will also be a lot of cosmetics.
It remains unclear if they will take advantage of a well-managed Rocket League account.
Psyonix confirms that there will be a rating system on the Internet. Herein lies the promise that while the game should be easy to learn, there will also be mechanisms in place to make good players stand out from the crowd.
An interim alpha test is currently being conducted in Australia and New Zealand. The publisher plans to announce additional regions and trial periods in the coming months. There should also be more information about the content and features.
With the planned release of Rocket League Sideswipe, Psyonix is embarking on a path already taken by other big titles. PUBG, Call of Duty and Fortnite – all of these games have a long-running mobile version and celebrate huge (financial) successes. Due to the fact that Rocket League Sideswipe should be free, fans should be prepared for microtransactions, which, like console and PC affiliates, should be of a cosmetic nature.
Rocket League Sideswipe is scheduled to be released “later this year”.
