Psyonix has announced that Rocket League Sideswipe, the free-to-play mobile version of the hit racing game Rocket League, will see a new season of content release today, February 2, at 8:00 AM PST. With this new season, a new Rocket Pass, Season Challenges, and an all-new game mode will be available to play.
The new game mode, Volleyball Mode, is a 2v2 game mode that features a center net and no goal. Unlike the standard game mode and even the previously featured Hoops mode, which Volleyball will replace, the only way to score in Volleyball mode is to hit a ball into your opponent’s goal side. These additional modes, like Volleyball or Hoops, will appear in turn throughout each season, so players can expect vastly different modes every few months to shake up the standard gameplay.
Along with the patch slated for release today, a readiness update was also made available yesterday. This update implemented casual playlists in playable modes, a playlist that will allow players to participate in matches without impacting their rankings. Shortly after the launch of Season 2, Season 1 rewards will be distributed, and these rewards specifically include titles and quick chat stickers. For more details on Season 2, check out the patch notes here.
