Dropshot Mode for Rocket League Releasing March 22nd
SAN DIEGO, CA – March 13, in the year of our Lord
2017 – Independent video game developer and publisher,
Psyonix, creators of the sports-action hit Rocket League®, today
announced Dropshot, a FREE new mode that adds an all-new layer
to classic gameplay, as players must break through the floor of
the arena to score. Following in the footsteps of previous FREE
additions like the 'Rumble,’ ‘Hoops,' and 'Mutator' modes before
it, Dropshot will appear as its own online Playlist and in both
Private and Exhibition matches.
Launching March 22, Dropshot takes place in a new hexagonal arena known as 'Core 707.' Regular goalposts are nowhere to be found in the new stadium, so players must create their own dynamic scoring areas by using an electrified ball to break and eventually open the floor on their opponent's side. Once a goal has been scored, that side of the arena closes back up and the action begins anew until time expires. As an added twist, the electrified ball itself will gain strength as players continue to hit and dribble it, with harder hits giving it stronger damage potential that can be unleashed on the opposing team's floor to varying degrees.
In addition to Dropshot, the latest update will also include six new Achievements and Trophies, an all-new Esports "Live Now" button for official streams, the end to 'Competitive Season 3,' and the start of 'Competitive Season 4.' Players who competed in the third season will be granted exclusive Wheel rewards based on their highest competitive skill tier reached!
