Rocket League Mobile Is Finally Coming With Sideswipe
Rocket League is already one of the most enjoyable esports to watch and now it’s going mobile with Sideswipe! That’s right, Psyonix has a free-to-play mobile Rocket League title in the works, for both iOS and Android. If you love Rocket League but want to play it anywhere you go, this is going to be the title for you. We’re excited to see how it all comes together, but here’s what we know right now!
Quick Matches, Arcade Action
This is an announcement that was a long time coming, it seems. So many other esports have mobile titles to entice people in – CoD Mobile, PUBG Mobile, Fortnite, and more. Rocket League Sideswipe on mobile will have the same action you remember, but in 1v1, 2v2 matches that go for two minutes. You’ll still have car customization, online rankings, and advanced techniques to master, so don’t worry about that.
According to Psyonix Esports Program Specialist Cory Lanier:
“If you look at … a live product like a video game, it’s changing all the time and growing with the community. That’s where we’ve shifted this, is to be able to react and listen and start implementing changes for the long term.”
Yesterday, March 24th, Australian and New Zealand mobile gamers got a chance at a limited-time Regional Alpha, for Android devices. There will be more tests in the future, so don’t worry. Psyonix will keep people up to date, and as we learn more, we will pass it along. The game itself sounds like it will be coming in the next few months, so that’s very exciting. A Summer release would be perfect timing.
Rocket League’s really grown and improved over the last year or so. From crossplay, going free-to-play, their pushes into collegiate esports, you can tell Psyonix wants to stay on the pulse of what’s hot and interesting. We’re certainly curious to see how Rocket League Sideswipe plays on mobile, even if this writer in particular is awful at the game! Are you excited? Let us know over on social media!
