The car-based soccer video game “Rocket League” will expand to include basketball with “Rocket League Hoops”
As for when this new basketball mode will be released, an earlier tweet from the Rocket League account asked its followers, “Who wants a teaser for something we’re releasing later this year?” So there’s no strict timetable for when players can expect to be able to play this mode.
Rocket League, which allows one-, two- or three-player teams of virtual rocket-powered RC cars to duke it out in fast-paced soccer matches, was one of 2015’s surprise hits thanks in part to its inclusion in Sony’s PlayStation Plus subscription when it was released last July for the PlayStation 4 and PC.
Its creators at the San Diego studio Psyonix have continued to support the game since then with a version for Xbox One in February, as well as free and paid downloadable content released at regular intervals. It’s not known if “Rocket League Hoops” will be a free or paid addition.
