Rocket League to get new Dropshot game mode with free update next week
Tuesday 14 March 2017 - 15:17 GMT
Development studio Psyonix has announced that Rocket League will be getting a new game mode titled Dropshop via a free update that will be released next week.
In the new game mode players will have to to destroy panels on the opposing team’s floor, and score goals through those gaps instead of pushing the ball into their opponent’s goal.
Each panel can be hit by a ball twice, the first hit activates the panel, while the second breaks the panel, creating a new scoring opportunity.
The new ball has three different phases, each more powerful than the last, that determine how much damage is done when the ball smashes into the floor panels. The second and third phases are activated by multiple Battle-Car hits, so the longer the ball stays off the ground, the more powerful it becomes.
While the first phase of the new ball only damages one tile upon impact, the second and third phases can damage up to seven and 19 panels.
The free update will also introduce a new hexagonal arena titled Core 707 that was built specifically for the game mode to allow players to get familiar with it.
