Rocket League: New Free Mode Coming March 22
"Dropshot is a brand new take on Rocket League gameplay as we introduce dynamic breakable floors and an electrified ball, all within the confines of a new hexagonal Arena, 'Core 707.' Instead of pushing the ball into your opponent's goal, your objective is to destroy panels on the opposing team's floor, and score goals through those gaps.
Our new game mode is all about Damage! Along with our usual stats like Goals, Assists, and Saves, Dropshotintroduces Damage as a statistic -- the more damage you do, the more floor panels break, and the easier it is to score a goal! Each panel can be hit by a ball twice -- the first hit activates the panel, while the second breaks the panel, creating a new scoring opportunity.
The new ball has three different phases, each more powerful than the last, that determine how much damage is done when the ball smashes into the floor panels. The second and third phases are activated by multiple Battle-Car hits, so the longer the ball stays off the ground, the more powerful it becomes. While the first phase of the new ball only damages one tile upon impact, the second and third phases can damage up to seven and 19 panels, respectively." - RocketLeague.com
In addition to the new mode, the March 22 update will include "new achievements/trophies, painted Bodies and Rocket Trails, an eSports content button, the end of Competitive Season 3, a new Skill Tier hierarchy, and more!" You can get more info on the content update on Rocket League's official site.
The update will also include a new "original import battle-car," ENDO, which is "available exclusively as a limited-drop inside the Turbo Crate. Endo is a sleek and menacing Battle-Car built for competition!"
And speaking of that turbo crate:
"Our speed-themed Turbo Crate brings all-new exclusive Garage items to Rocket League! You could potentially find a new Import Battle-Car, animated Decals, Exotic Wheels, Black Market customizations, and more."
And of course, season 4 begins!
There's lots more coming in the March 22 update, so make sure you head to RocketLeague.com to check it all out. And stay tuned to FloKO for our continuing coverage of all things Rocket League!
