Rocket League Starts Dunking In April

Psst. Pssst! Hey, hi, shh, get in here and close the door. This is actually Alice hacking into the account of a vanished RPS hero because I’m a mite flu-y and everyone in the RPS treehouse shouted at me to go back to bed. But they can’t reasonably expect me to resist a car nailing a sweet dunk. It is, of course, a peek at the upcoming basketball mode for carball game Rocket League [official site], which developers Psyonix have now announced will launch in April. Look, I’ll show you this short video loop and then schlep myself back to bed, I promise:


I imagine the kids yell.

I heard someone say it once.

I mean, it was on the Internet, but all the kids are on the Internet nowadays.

Hoops, the old bounceballeroo, will arrive in April and be… like Rocket League but more basketball-y? Actually, question: which sport do you compare Rocket League to? Football is our go-to comparison, but RPS is based in Footieland. I’ve seen folks in other corners of the world compare it to ice hockey. I think it’s because of the momentum players have, and also the shoving? But Rocket League is played primarily with a bouncy ball. Though it did add a hockey puck option. Hocker? Carhockerball.

Okay, shhh, I’m ducking out again. If Pip asks, you ain’t see me, right.

Nibble nibble munch munch, nibble nibble munch.

    Might there perchance be Froggy Fresh when one dunks upon one’s opponent?


    I, for one, will be administering quite a few “back to papa’s” once this is available. Balling on all sorts of fools and whatnot

    Get well soon Alice. Dunk yourself in bed (ooer).

    I was playing this the other day and had a minor brainsplosion when I realized that Rocket League is basically Pong Xtreme HD Hyper Edition.

    So Pong, Rocket League is Pong.

    This is going to be fuckin’ amazing. They just need to add the sound effects from SNES’ NBA Jam. “HE’S ON FIRE!”

    I’m thinking the Space Jam theme on loop in the background will go down nicely with this too.

  11. JB says:

    Wait, so the monster that killed Kieron was ‘flu? Wow.

    Get well soon, Alice!

    Hey, RPS! I’ve found her! She’s right over here, in disguise!

    Sorry, but you had it coming, young lady. *stern look*
