A mobile version of Rocket League has been rumored since developer Psyonix posted a job posting for mobile-centric QA testers last year.
This is no longer a rumor.
Rocket League Sideswipe, which would have been designed from scratch for mobile devices, will be available later this year. Unless you live in Australia or New Zealand, in which case it will be available today.
Details are still relatively slim on the pitch and the Google Play Store page doesn’t appear to be live yet, but Psynonix has revealed that the game will consist of 1v1 and 2v2 online matches lasting two minutes.
Like the original PC and console, Rocket League Sideswipe will feature intuitive controls with advanced mechanics, so beginners can jump in and have fun while experienced players can dominate them with seemingly magical abilities.
There will also be car customization options, as well as an online ranking system.
If you’re lucky enough to live in Australia or New Zealand, you’ll soon be able to try Rocket League Sideswipe in alpha form.
Everyone will have to wait a few months.
