Psyonix Reveals Free New “Dropshot” Mode for Rocket League
Independent video game developer and publisher, Psyonix, creators of the sports-action hit Rocket League, today announced Dropshot, a free new mode that adds an all-new layer to classic gameplay, as players must break through the floor of the arena to score. Following in the footsteps of previous free additions like the ‘Rumble,’ ‘Hoops,’ and ‘Mutator’ modes before it, Dropshot will appear as its own online Playlist and in both Private and Exhibition matches.
Launching March 22, Dropshot takes place in a new hexagonal arena known as ‘Core 707.’ Regular goalposts are nowhere to be found in the new stadium, so players must create their own dynamic scoring areas by using an electrified ball to break and eventually open the floor on their opponent’s side. Once a goal has been scored, that side of the arena closes back up and the action begins anew until time expires. As an added twist, the electrified ball itself will gain strength as players continue to hit and dribble it, with harder hits giving it stronger damage potential that can be unleashed on the opposing team’s floor to varying degrees.
Rocket League is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
Check out the Trailer:
Dropshot aims to turn the rules of standard play quite literally sideways by asking both teams to score by repeatedly hammering the ball into the floor. Doing so will gradually lead to the ground of the new ‘Core 707’ arena being destroyed, leaving nothing but gaping holes in which teams need to dunk the ball to score a point.
