Rocket League Sideswipe launches into pre-season

Get ready to win

In March, Psyonix announced a mobile version of Rocket League, known as Rocket League Sideswipe. Now, it’s coming out worldwide this month.

Rocket League Sideswipe is not exactly what you would expect for a mobile version of Rocket League. It’s a 2D version of the game that is played from a side view, eliminating the 3D view everyone is used to.

Before Season 1 of Rocket League Sideswipe begins, Psyonix will release the game in a pre-season to allow players to get used to the new controls and customize their cars so when Season 1 starts, everyone is ready to play.

It uses touch controls that are easy to master, according to Psyonix, along with more advanced control mechanics for players who want to play the game more competitively.


"Every time you level up in Sideswipe, you'll earn a 'Bonus Win' in Rocket League. Then, once you win an Online Match in Rocket League, you'll get extra XP for that Bonus Win. Bonus Wins can also be earned for Sideswipe by playing Rocket League, so enjoy the extra XP in both games," Psyonix said.
