The Psyonix team has announced a free mobile game that will be coming to iOS and Android later this year. It’s called Rocket League Sideswipe, and it’s a new, standalone Rocket League experience designed specifically for mobile devices.
Sideswipe will take the core gameplay of Rocket League but make it suited for mobile play. Games will be played from a side perspective on the field in either 1v1 or 2v2 matches. The matches are 2 minutes long and will be fast-paced.
Just like the core Rocket League experience for PC and consoles, the controls in Sideswipe will be easy to learn but there will be a lot to master for competitive ranks. There will be an online ranking system for the most competitive players.
It’ll also feature a garage with customization options for your cars, just like in the main game.
Psyonix plans for Rocket League Sideswipe to be a worldwide launch later this year. A limited-time regional Alpha test for Android devices is available for players in Australia and New Zealand starting today, and additional betas will be announced in coming months.
