Psyonix just released Rocket League Sideswipe. If you’ve already installed it, then you’ve probably seen the pre-season items you could win. Now, the company just announced Rocket League Season 1, and it will involve even more goodies.
What is Rocket League Sideswipe?
In case you don’t know, this is the mobile version of the popular multiplayer game. Just like in the original game, Sideswipe has you piloting a rocket-powered racecar in a game of futuristic soccer.
While the original game is in a 3D perspective, Sideswipe has 3D cars and a 3D field, but the perspective is 2D. You’ll be driving and flying from left to right across the field in order to make the goals. The shift to 2D doesn’t impact the action, however.
Just like the original game, you can customize your car in multiple ways. You can change the name, color, tires, rocket trail, and goal explosion effect. Along with that, you can add on decals and hats. All of these customization tools help you personalize all of your cars.
Earn items with Rocket League Sideswipe Season 1
Pre-season is over which means that it’s time to earn some serious rewards. Now that Rocket League Sideswipe Season 1 has started, you will be able to earn a bunch of fun and exciting in-game items and currency. All you have to do is compete in ranked online matches.
As you play, you’ll level up, and each time you level up, you’ll unlock a prize. You’ll earn prizes like vehicles, vehicle customizations, SP coins, and boxes full of multiple prizes. One thing to note is that if you’ve been playing and ranking up thus far, your rank will be reset.
There will also be a crossover event
To celebrate Rocket League Season 1, there’s going to be a fun crossover event between both versions of the game. There will be two challenges to complete, and doing so will award you some prizes that can be used in both Rocket League and in Sideswipe.
Firstly, you will be able to earn the Nuhai Inverted Wheels and the “WOW!” goal explosion effect. Also, you will be able to earn “Water Resistant” by Anamanaguchi as a player anthem. In order to get the song, you need to be signed in on the same Epic Games account for both Rocket League and Sideswipe.
If you’ve been playing Rocket League Sideswipe, and you love the music, you can listen to it on the original game. These songs are now available on Rocket League Radio. If you’re interested in playing Sideswipe, it’s available to download here.
