Basketball is dunking its way onto Rocket League

Psyonix has announced a new basketball mode for Rocket League set to debut later this month.

The mode was teased on Twitter by Psyonix earlier today, and will switch out goalposts with giant hoops.

While a release date hasn’t been confirmed, it seems the new mode will be part of Rocket League’s “March Madness” event.

Basketball in Rocket League will likely require you to juggle the ball in the air far more than usual. Judging by the screenshot, players will also be able to shoot from the court’s three-point line, rewarding players who can score from a distance.

It is unclear if Psyonix plan to add new mechanics to accommodate the new mode, but we can’t wait to dunk on some fools.

In other Rocket League news, Psyonix has announced a new crossover with Techland’s Dying Light.

The buggy found in Dying Light’s The Following expansion can now be equipped with a Rocket League-inspired paintjob.

To obtain the paintjob go here and enter the code “LightMyRocket” and link your relevant account to the site.

Techland has also confirmed that “Dying Light-inspired stuff” is coming to Rocket League, but provided no further details.

We wouldn’t be surprised if Dying Light’s buggy made an appearance in Rocket League. Maybe a few zombies will show up too?
