The trouble with a rocket-powered game of football is that in order to escalate the action, things have to get really silly.
Thought that Rocket League was getting a bit too easy, a bit samey for your liking? Even though it’s got rocket-powered cars playing football? Well, how about if we took away the goals?
Yep. That’s right. They’re taking away the goals in the new Rocket League Dropshot mode.
So how do you score? You have to literally rip a hole in the arena, through which you can then score in the – relatively speaking – normal fashion. That’s done using an electrified ball, and the longer the ball is dribbled and passed around, the more damage to the arena it will do.
Then, once you’ve scored, the arena’s wounds will close and you’ll have to go through the procedure all over again. In a nutshell, that’s the shiny new Rocket League Dropshot mode, and it’s just as bonkers as it sounds.
See? It’s even more bizarre than the vanilla game. Dropshot will launch as a free update for all players on March 22, 2017.
We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
