    On the final day of the Rocket League Championship Series Live Finals Psyonix took the stage to officially debut a brand new mode scheduled for release next month, Rocket League Rumble!

    A FREE game mode to be included with our next update in September, Rocket League Rumble is an epic battle royale-style addition that comes stacked with randomized power-ups. Whether you’re equipped with the Haymaker (which punches the ball), the Swapper (which changes your place on the field with an opponent’s), or the Tornado (you’ll just have to see it to believe it), each one of the 11 new power-ups brings an extra dimension to the classic Rocket League formula.

    Check out the trailer to see the new mode in action and remember to watch the final season-one RLCS match-ups today and forever on Twitch.tv/RocketLeague.




    Like the “Hoops” and “Mutator” modes before it, Rocket League Rumble will appear in online playlists and Private and Exhibition matches. For the latter, you can select specific Mutators, including Slow, Civilized, Destruction Derby, and Spring-Loaded. The complete power-up list includes:

    The Boot (Kicks an opponent’s car)
    Disruptor (Forces your opponent to drive uncontrollably)
    Freezer (Freezes the ball in-place)
    Grappling Hook (Pulls you towards the ball)
    Haymaker (Punches the ball)
    Magnetizer (Attracts the ball to your car)
    Plunger (Grabs the ball via plunger and cord)
    Power Hitter (Allows you to 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 opposing cars into a giant funnel cloud)

    Haha, huge fan of insane things in games and the more comedic the better.

    I think it would be best if you had to sacrifice ball chasing for the powerups, i.e. if they were collected from the ceiling. I'm a tad concerned at the auto-aiming that seems apparent in the trailer. But I'll give it a go. I think it will be more fun to watch the entertaining elite players mess about with it.

    I love how they keep adding things and keeping the game fresh, but I seem to be a purist myself. Good old fashioned put the ball in the net style player. :lol:

    For some reason I'm better at defending than scoring.

    That is true, you're killer in goal.

    I make a good decoration.

    Well it's really fun when you pull off a cool powerup goal. But really annoying watching others return the favour.
