In a new trailer posted to the Rocket League YouTube channel yesterday, the new game mode “Rumble” was announced. Based on the trailer, the new mode utilizes the same general format of a Rocket League match, but with the addition of pickup items that cause a variety of wacky effects. Items include spring-loaded boots to shove away cars, spikes to pin the ball to your car, a freeze ray to stop the ball wherever it is (even in midair), and others. Rumble will be added to Rocket League, free of charge, some time in September.
While Rocket League is certainly fun vanilla, I have to admit, I’m intrigued by Rumble. Reminds me of some of my old favorite car battle games, like Cel Damage, but with more soccer. Sounds like a good time to me.
