The Rocket League franchise is set to expand the a little bit further with the announcement by Psyonix of their new mobile game. Rocket League Sideswipe is set to debut sometime later in 2021 and will be available on iOS and Android.
The new take on Rocket League will pit players in a 1v1 or 2v2 style match with the game playing from a complete side angled view. Games will be fast-paced, 2-minute matches that you can play with friends locally or online.
Rocket League Sideswipe is designed to have smaller, quick matches available to play if you aren’t able to play the real Rocket League. The game will also be featuring car customization in the garage. Customization is one of Rocket League’s biggest features that fans love to take advantage and one of Psyonix’s biggest moneymakers.
For those gamers who love the competitive aspect of Rocket League, Rocket League Sideswipe will be bringing that same competitiveness to the mobile world. You can expect to have some sort of online ranking system for competitive play. As of now, no one knows how many rankings there will be or how high the rankings will go. According to Psyonix, there will be tons of more information on Rocket League Sideswipe in the next few months as the release date begins to inch closer.
There is good news if you are living in Australia and New Zealand at the moment. Those who live in those two respective countries are eligible to join a limited-time Regional Alpha test on Android via the Google Play Store. If you don’t reside in Australia and New Zealand, no need to fret, Psyonix has also said that they will have additional information for other regions to join beta tests in the upcoming months.
