What is Rocket League Sideswipe?

Rocket League Sideswipe is a mobile-only title that seeks to bring Rocket League to mobile users. The game features arcade-style action that is optimized for touch controls. It will come with the option to play private matches and it has a ranked system similar to the original Rocket League. Players will be able to climb through the ranks.

It is a free-to-play title with 1v1 and 2v2 game modes as well as a Hoops mode which resembles basketball. The game is currently in the pre-season and it will lead up to Season 1 with limited-time content. The game is likely to be monetized with cosmetics and battle passes.

Linking your existing Rocket League Epic Games account with Rocket League Sideswipe will reward you with bonus XP. There will be crossover events between Rocket League and Sideswipe with exclusive rewards for players from both games.
