If you love playing Rocket League and thought that it might be a game that would be awesome to play on mobile, you’re in luck. The folks over at Psyonix have since announced Rocket League Sideswipe. This is a mobile version of Rocket League that has been designed from ground up and is optimized for mobile gameplay.
According to the developers, “Rocket League Sideswipe will feature 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. Plus, there are advanced mechanics, just like Rocket League, for those who want to climb the Competitive Ranks. In the garage, Rocket League Sideswipe will have robust car customization similar to Rocket League. Players can also expect an online Ranking system for competitive play. We have a lot more to reveal about the game in the coming months as we get closer to release.”
It should be noted that unlike the regular version of Rocket League, which is in 3D, Sideswipe is more of a 2D type of game with a side-on view. This doesn’t mean that it won’t be as fun, but it will definitely have a different feel. How exactly it will play and if it will be just as fun remains to be seen.
Psyonix is aiming to release the game later this year, but the good news is that if you’re living in Australia or New Zealand ,the game is available for download in its alpha form on Android, so you can get a taste of what’s to come.
