How is Rocket League Sideswipe different?

As mentioned, Rocket League Sideswipe offers slightly different gameplay feel than traditional Rocket League. The mobile title is locked into a side-scrolling view, meaning the game is really two-dimensional, limiting certain movements.

However, players will still be able to boost and propel themselves through the air to make various types of plays. The natural arcade-like feel with touchscreen controls offers fast-paced gameplay and shorter match times.

Rocket League Sideswipe - Game modes

To keep the games quick and exciting, Rocket League Sideswipe matches are only two minutes long compared to the five minutes seen in the main game.

This makes it easier for players to get matches in on the go, after all, it is a mobile title.

Duel mode - Rocket League Sideswipe

A classic 1 on 1 match, Duel mode provides space to perform tricks and abilities, and test your skills in head-to-head competition. Duel mode can also be set up in Private matchmaking settings, to play quick matches with a friend.

Doubles mode - Rocket League Sideswipe

Doubles mode is a bit more fast-paced and offers a chance to team up. Select your best Rocket League partner and enjoy Ranked Competitive 2v2 matches en route to climbing the leaderboards.

Hoops mode - Rocket League Sideswipe

The most relaxed and fun to play mode, Hoops mode replaces the goals with two baskets. Hoops mode is available to play in the "Extra Modes" playlist and in offline games. In online ranked matches, the teams are limited to 2v2.
