Use jump button, turbo boosts and gracefully curved walls to chase the ball in all three dimensions as you please. Learn to jump and engage turbo to fly off and somersault a ball into the goalposts from twenty meters up in the air or intercept the opposing team’s offensive. Ride up the walls and guide the ball across the ceiling to become the opposing team’s death from above.
Quick match-ups, quick matches
Rocket League matches last for just a couple minutes, making it perfect for a brief session before going back to other things. Match-up system works fast, minimizing the time spent waiting for a chance to play with and against others. For the impatient there are several tiers of AI skill, good enough to enjoy a quick match.
Make no mistake: the matches, though quick, are intense, as you tightly grab your controller to nudge the ball just right before the opponent does.
Many ways to play
Rocket League offers several game modes, and variations within them. Since release Psyonics kept coming up with new game modes and variations. Between Snow Day, a hockey-inspired mode with physics matching the setup, and a basketball-themed Hoops, football isn’t the only game that Rocket League enjoys twisting in its own creative image.
There is also the Rumble Mode, adding wacky, almost cartoonish pickups, from spring-loaded boxing gloves to spikes and tornadoes to shake up the gameplay for those, who seek new challenges.
There are also ways to shift around the rules of regular matches thanks to “mutators” which change game factors like gravity or ball properties.
Test yourself in four team sizes: 1v1, 2v2, 3v3, or 4v4 and find out which one suits you best.
If playing fair isn’t your cup of tea, you can always ignore the ball and focus on slamming into opposing car destroying them and forcing their respawn. Just don’t abuse the option!
A lot of customization
Rocket League is the game to play if you always wanted to drive a truck with a sombrero or WW1 helmet. Unlock new accessories as you play.

Don’t fear balance issues, your style will never work to the detriment of your car’s performance. So pick up this sombrero, load bubbles into the exhaust pipe and go play ball!
