We’ve all sort of grown accustomed to the football-themed madness that has lent itself so well to the popularity of Rocket League. However, fans have just been chucked a curve ball in the form of a brand-new basketball-themed event. Hurry up and check it out though – the event only runs until October 18th.
While everyone else is going Halloween crazy, Rocket league has launched ‘The Block,’ a limited-time basketball-themed event. Instead of aiming for the small goals for which Rocket League has become known, the platform is now home to larger circular hoops on either side of a new arena.
In addition to the new game configuration and arena, Rocket League is also introducing new challenges and rewards to experience. Included in the new rewards are a brand new animated double dribble topper and a new game-time player anthem. This event won’t last forever, so head on into the game and pick up your rewards as soon as you can.
The hoops might present the Rocket League pros among us with a brand new challenge. In fact, Hoops is replacing the extra mode competitive tournament until the event is relegated to the history books and gaming nostalgia museums on October 18th.
If you’ve found yourself getting a little bored of the classic Rocket League experience, this is definitely an event you’ll want to participate in. Even if you anticipate that you won’t be terribly good at basketball, half the fun of the game is trying anyway.
In other news, Batman has returned to the Rocket League. The Dark Knight, his cars, and all sorts of other batman-themed merch are available in the Batman bundle. This is paid DLC, so you’ll have to fork out to drive the selection of legendary batmobiles that the bundle contains.
