The world’s most played vehicular soccer video game, Rocket League, is coming to mobile devices. The developer announced it through the game’s official social media channels and published a blog post on the official website.
Rocket League will be deployed on iOS and Android with a slightly different name: Rocket League Sideswipe. If everything goes as expected, the new mobile game is planned to be released later this year as free-to-play.
Besides being a huge pickup for mobile gaming, Rocket League Sideswipe brings another competitive arena for gamers, as the game features two different competitive modes: 1v1 and 2v2. However, unlike the PC and console versions, these competitive modes will be shorter and faster-paced with 2-minute matches, which you can play with your friends or other players.
According to the official statement, Rocket League Sideswipe will feature easy to play controls compatible with mobile devices. Whether you’re experienced with Rocket League or not, players will need to spend some time on the mobile game to get used to it. While being easily playable for everyone, Sideswipe will still keep Rocket League’s advanced mechanics.
Psyonix is targeting a worldwide launch for Rocket League Sideswipe later this year, but there are limited-time Regional Alpha tests on Android via Google Play Store in Australia and New Zealand. The developer will announce the information about future regional betas incoming months.
