‘ROCKET LEAGUE’ REVEALS STANDALONE MOBILE TITLE
Developer Psyonix revealed plans for Rocket League: Sideswipe, a “standalone” mobile port of the popular car soccer game, on Wednesday morning. The game will launch later this year.
A post on the official Rocket League website describes Sideswipe as a “free mobile game for iOS and Android that takes the core, competitive gameplay of Rocket League and reimagines it for a mobile device.”
Matches take place on a 2D plane rather than the full 3D experience of the core Rocket League, as shown in the first gameplay trailer. Matches take place in 1v1 or 2v2 formats, lasting about two minutes per match, and will feature online play, customization and what the post calls “mobile controls that are easy to pick up whether you’re a master of Rocket League or a new player still learning your way around the field.” The game will also feature “advanced mechanics,” though none have yet been detailed.
While Psyonix is targeting a full worldwise release later in 2021, Android owners in Australia and New Zealand can now sign up for a limited regional Alpha test.
