Rocket League free ‘Hoops’ mode coming April 26
A new basketball-themed game mode is coming to Rocket League on April 26, and players will soon be able to outfit their vehicles with official NBA team logos and colors as part of an upcoming DLC pack.
The free “Hoops” update adds a new playable arena that replaces Rocket League‘s soccer-styled goal zones with oversized basketball hoops, adding a new degree of challenge to developer Psyonix’s rocket-powered vehicular sports sim.
Basketball fans can support their favorite teams via the upcoming “NBA Flag Pack” premium DLC, which adds 30 new vehicle flags featuring the names and logos of real-world NBA teams. Pricing for the NBA Flag Pack has not yet been announced.
The upcoming Hoops mode is Rocket League‘s second major gameplay variant released in the wake of the game’s 2015 launch. Psyonix released a winter-themed hockey mode for Rocket League late last year, complete with a uniquely themed ice rink arena and an oversized puck that replaces the game’s default soccer ball.
The “Hoops” patch will be coming to PS4, Xbox One, and PC (via Steam).
Check out the Trailer:
“All players will obtain a flag bearing the NBA logo as part of the update. You can buy flag packs sporting your favorite team’s log by purchasing the NBA Flag pack for $1.99 USD.”
