Rocket League adds “Hoops” mode on April 26

Basketball-inspired mode arrives alongside NBA flags DLC.

Rocket League

Rocket League will add a basketball-inspired “Hoops” mode as part of a regularly-scheduled free game update on April 26, developer Psyonix announced.

The new mode comes with a free new arena called “Dunk House,” where the net itself can be used as a ramp for the ball, and aerials and wall-play are key to victory.

Additionally, an officially licensed “NBA Flag Pack,” containing the logos of all 30 NBA teams represented as in-game flags, will also be available for sale as premium downloadable content for $1.99. A free NBA logo flag will be included with the “Hoops” mode update itself.

Watch a trailer for the new mode below.
