Rocket League's basketball mode

Rocket League's basketball mode

Earlier this month, Psyonix teased a new basketball mode for Rocket League, but didn't reveal anything beyond a screenshot.

Psyonix Design Director Corey Davis revealed that Hoops mode is set to arrive in April, but with a warning: it'll be turning up the difficulty by a few notches.

Dunking will obviously mean more emphasis on aerial skills, so nailing those trajectories will be more important than ever.

"Thats a concern for us," Corey says when asked about how tough Hoops will be. "It's a lot harder than hockey to pick up and score, and it's kind of a test in terms of, like, is a more hardcore mode going to be received well or not?"

"Because it's really fun, especially for dunking, you don't have to aerial. It's fairly possible to hit the ball and have it shoot in like an actual basketball shot."

At the end of last year, Psyonix introduced an ice hockey mode for the holiday season, which eventually became a permanent mutator.

Rocket League took the gaming community by storm and is continuing to get better and better.
