Rocket League is a great game that combines vehicles and soccer into one. The game has gained immense popularity way back during its early days. Given that it is available to play on PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation, and Xbox. And since the game has now become a free-to-play game in September of 2020 it managed to bring in even more time players.
Rocket League was developed by Payonix and was released in 2015 on the PlayStation 4 and Steam for Microsoft Windows. The Xbox and Nintendo Switch versions of the game were released later on. The game is still being updated with the latest content and is currently having NASCAR-related events and a special NASCAR fan DLC pack for 2000 credits. The game can be cross played and cross-platform progression is also available.

Season 3 of Rocket League began on the 7th of April and will continue until the 11th of August. The new season brings in events from NASCAR and F1 alongside a new stadium circuit. The Rocket Pass for season 3 will have around 70 main tiers alongside with the free rewards. You can finally trade in items from your inventory. You can trade in Core Items, Tournament items and Blueprints and these will be sorted based on thier rarity. Season 3 will also bring in new weekly challenges and season long challenges that will help you to unlock customization options for free.
There are new documents from the Apple vs Epic Games trial that reveals a Rocket League game that is going to be released on Android and iOS. Well yes, there is a Rocket League: Sideswipe game that will be coming out during the later part of the year, both games will be different. While the latter one will not be having anything much to do with the main Rocket League game whatsoever, the former one is expected to bring the whole original Rocket League experience to mobile devices.
According to documents, the new Rocket League mobile game will be having its own dedicated launcher and you’ll be able to cross-play between PC and console players as well. By the looks of it, the game might actually be in the making and we could expect the game to come out anytime this year or next year since Psyonix has been acquired by Epic Games. The game is expected to go into beta testing by Q2 of this year. This may change as the documents are dated June of 2020.
Here’s what the documents reveal:
- Next-generation client with full game experience across all platforms, including mobile.
- Cross-play and cross-progress between PC, mobile, and console
- Mobile Alpha-beta testing before being released on other platforms.
- Estimated testing for Mobile Beta in Q2 2021.
With the ongoing trial between Apple and Epic Games, it may take time for the games to be released since Fortnite, is still not back on the iOS App Store. We might get more updates about both Rocket League mobile games once the trials eventually come to an end. Till then it’s still good news that Rocket League is looking to expand and bring in new audiences into the game.
