Rocket League's Basketball Mode Is Coming In April

Rocket League Basketball

Psyonix's continued effort to add every ball game known to man to their competitive RC-car sports game Rocket League continues, and this time basketball is set to make its debut at some point in April.

This new mode, titled Dunk House, will be added to the game's playlists as part of a free update that includes the game mode with a map that looks very familiar to anyone who has ever stood on a basketball court. Players will be zipping, boosting, and jumping around the field while they try to tap a giant basketball in the enemy team's hoop. While this mode will be available to everyone who owns the game, it is as of yet very unlikely that this mode will make it to the ranked playlists. This mode will most likely be another unique modifier you can choose to play during custom games like the earlier released Snow Day modifier that turned the game into a rocket-powered version of hockey. 

Whether this is a temporary mode like the aforementioned Snow Day is as of yet unknown, but because basketball isn't a game that's necessarily tied to a season, it is likely that this new mode is here to stay.

Are you looking forward to this new game mode? What do you think of the new map? Let us know in the comments below!

Quick Take

I love Rocket League and Psyonix. The post-release support has been well above and beyond what was expected, and I really like that they are constantly trying to find new ways to innovate or add to the formula. The newly introduced Rocket League Championship will add official eSport support to the game as well, and the response has been immense. It seems like Rocket League is here to stay, and I can't help but smirk at the prospect of being able to play this for the foreseeable future.

I've been playing games since I was just barely able to walk so I might as well write about them.
