Rocket League Sideswipe Details

Psyonix, the company behind the popular vehicular soccer game Rocket League, announced a mobile spinoff called Rocket League Sideswipe. Like its PC counterpart, the Rocket League Sideswipe will be free-to-play, and a limited alpha test is now ongoing for players in Australia and New Zealand. The devs stated that the game would be made available for more regions in the coming months. 

Rocket League Sideswipe is a fast-paced game where players compete in 1v1 or 2v2 matches that can last for a maximum of two minutes. The objective is simple and similar to how traditional soccer is played with the added twist of using vehicles to achieve your goal. Players will have to do what they can to shoot the ball inside the opponents’ net. 

Rocket League Sideswipe Minimum System Requirements

The game can surprisingly run on low-end devices with Android 6.0 or higher and at least 2GB RAM. 

Only Android players can have access to the game at the moment. However, players can expect an iOS release once the game is in a much more stable state.
