Psyonix has introduced their new free to play mobile game, Side Swipe. It features basic Rocket League gameplay in a more simplistic and shortened game mode.
Did we mention it looks awesome! First looks make it feel like a modernised version of the old flash game slime soccer but with some intricate Rocket League mechanics.
“We’re hard at work on this free mobile game for iOS and Android that takes the core, competitive gameplay of Rocket League and reimagines it for a mobile device,” Psyonix said in a blog post. “In Rocket League Sideswipe, players compete from a new perspective on the field in one-vs-one or two-vs-two matches. Games will be fast-paced, two-minute matches that you can play with friends near or far thanks to online play.”
“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,” Psyonix said. “Plus, there are advanced mechanics, just like Rocket League, for those who want to climb the Competitive Ranks.”
Pysonix also confirmed there would be car customization and an online rank system for the growing mobile esports genre, particularly big in South East Asia.
Is this the start of Rocket League bringing us into the next chapter of mobile esports?
The expected release date is later this year for free on iOS and Android.
