Rocket League is getting another free mode for players to enjoy across the globe.
Entitled Dropshot, this mode’s primary objective is to score goals by destroying panels on the floor and putting the ball through the openings. The mode will see its own unique hexagonal arena as well as playlist for private and exhibition contests.
From Psyonix via press release:
Dropshot takes place in a new hexagonal arena known as ‘Core 707.’ Regular goalposts are nowhere to be found in the new stadium, so players must create their own dynamic scoring areas by using an electrified ball to break and eventually open the floor on their opponent’s side. Once a goal has been scored, that side of the arena closes back up and the action begins anew until time expires. As an added twist, the electrified ball itself will gain strength as players continue to hit and dribble it, with harder hits giving it stronger damage potential that can be unleashed on the opposing team’s floor to varying degrees.
The new electrified ball will have three different phases to determine how much damage is done to the floor. In order for the ball to gain power, it must be hit multiple times without it touching the ground.
Each time it touches the ground, damage is done to the floor panels until they ultimately give way, opening up the chance for a goal. Panels can be eliminated in numbers up to 19, depending on the strength of the ball.
Dropshot launches on March 22.
