Rocket League, the surprise “overnight success” that took years of effort and determination, already has a large and loyal fanbase. A sure-fire way to earn – and ultimately, maintain – such a loyal band of followers is to continue to support and expand upon your game, both in terms of on-going support and new features, to ensure that it remains as much of a joy to play years after that initial breakthrough. What’s even better, however, is if you offer all that good stuff for free.
Enter the Rocket League Rumble mode.
The new Rocket League Rumble mode is a rumble in the royal sense, a rough and tumble mix of randomised power-ups with the well-established rocket-car-football action, to allow for frenetic and anarchic matches in both Private and Exhibition formats.
The complete list of power-ups in Rocket League Rumble includes:
● The Boot (Kicks an opponent’s car)
● Disruptor (Forces the opponent to drive uncontrollably)
● Freezer (Freezes the ball in-place)
● Grappling Hook (Pulls you toward the ball)
● Haymaker (Punches the ball)
● Magnetizer (Attracts the ball to your car)
● Plunger (Snaps the ball to your position)
● Power Hitter (Hit everything harder)
● Spike (Attach the ball to your car when you bump into it)
● Swapper (Change positions on the field with your opponent)
● Tornado (Sweep up the ball and cars into a giant funnel cloud)
There’s also a Rocket League Rumble trailer, which shows off the Acme Corporation boot to great effect.

And much like the other extremely popular additional modes – Hoops and Mutator – the Rocket League Rumble mode is completely free, for all players, on all platforms. Psyonix certainly knows how to keep the punters happy.
