Psyonix has announced that their basketball-inspired “Hoops” mode for Rocket League will be slam dunking its way to consoles on April 26th as part of a free game update. In addition, 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 DLC for $1.99 which gives players access to all 30 teams.
Following the positive community reaction to the “Snow Day” Hockey Mode released late last year, Psyonix’s new “Hoops” Mode adds a dynamic basketball twist to the wildly-successful soccer-meets-driving concept. In addition to the mode itself, Rocket League Hoops will also come 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 is the key to victory.
The new Hoops Mode update is free on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Windows PC via Steam and includes a free NBA logo flag for all players.
