Rocket League Receiving New Dropshot Mode In Next Free Update

Posted on March 13, 2017 by Rae Michelle Richards

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:


Rocket League X Portal? Yup That’s a Thing!

Posted on November 29, 2015 by Rae Michelle Richards

Valve, the owners of Steam and the developers of the PC classic Portal, have partnered with Rocket League developer Psyonix to provide the Rocket League PC community with some pretty sweet free DLC.

Want to deck out your car with a sweet cake sticker? By playing a full match of Rocket League after December 1st you’ll get a chance to earn one of the following Portal themed items:

Cake (Topper)

Conversion Gel (Rocket Trail)

Propulsion Gel (Rocket Trail)

Repulsion Gel (Rocket Trail)

Aperture Laboratories (Antenna)

Cake Sticker (Antenna)

Companion Cube (Antenna)

Personality Core (Antenna)

PotatOS (Antenna)

Honestly I think my favorite of all of these is probably the Gels being used as Rocket Trails. Just imagine if they had the same effects as they did in Portal 2? Cars would be bouncing around all over the place… even more so!


Kudos to Valve for allowing Psyonix to use some of their most iconic imagery and giving them the ability to provide players with awesome free DLC. Perhaps they could do the same for PS4 players?
