Psyonix is bringing a brand new mode to Rocket League on March 22nd that does away with goalposts all together. Instead of scoring a goal on a traditional soccer net, the two teams of cars must dribble an electrified ball across the field to open up a hole on their opponents side of the arena. Once a goal is scored on the opponents’ side of things the floor closes back up and everything starts anew. Oh, and just to make things even more interesting the ball isn’t only electrified but also the ball will continue to build up strength as it is successfully dribbled, building up its’ destructive potential.
Alongside the brand new mode the Dropshot update will bring with it a new stadium for the titular mode, called ‘Core 707’. Official live streams of Rocket League will be accessible via a “Live Now” button that Psyonix are adding to the game’s menu. There also six brand new achievements coming to the game as part of the Dropshot update.,
Rocket League originally launched in the summer of 2015 on PS4, Xbox One and PC where it quickly became a smash success with other 28 million players worldwide. Since then Psyonix has dropped several substantial free updates including the mutators, rumble and hoops updates. Paid DLC in the form of additional car parts & licensed Hot Wheels add-ons have also been made available over the course of the last year or so.
Here is the official trailer for Dropshot mode:
