In a surprise announcement, Epic Games, the popular game developer behind the widely successful game Fortnite, has announced a new free-to-play game to add to their roster. The game is called Rocket League Sideswipe and is specially designed for mobile devices. According to the developers, the game will be available on both iOS and Android by later this year.
Rocket League Sideswipe received a soft launch in Australia and New Zealand, where it was well-received by the gaming community. The game brings the classic gameplay of Rocket League, but with a mobile twist. Instead of a full-size field, the game is played on a smaller arena with two-dimensional gameplay, which is perfect for mobile devices. Moreover, the game is designed to be played in portrait mode, allowing players to play with one hand.
Players will also be able to customize their vehicles with various skins available, as well as unlock different items according to their progression through the game. Complementing the classic game modes like 1v1 and 2v2, Rocket League Sideswipe offers a new challenge with its ‘Arena’ mode, which is designed for ten-player matches.
With Epic Games announcing its new mobile offering for one of its most popular games, fans are undoubtedly excited to get their hands on this new experience. The mobile gaming industry is ever-growing and offers immense potential for games like Rocket League Sideswipe to break new ground in mobile gaming experiences.
