The Hoops DLC for Rocket League, which was revealed last month, will be released next month. The add-on brings a “dynamic basketball twist” to the football-meets-cars game and is a free update for all players.
The DLC will also introduce the Dunk House arena. Players will be able to use the ramp for the ball and Aerials, with developer Psyonix commenting that wall play is the “key to victory” in Hoops.
Alongside the Hoops content, players will have the chance to purchase the NBA Flag Pack premium DLC for $1.99 which will add all 30 NBA team logos as in-game flags. A free NBA flag will also be added in the DLC and can be used in any game mode.
Earlier this month, Psyonix and publisher 505 Games announced a physical version of the game will be released on June 24th in Europe, Africa, and the Middle East. North America will get the retail version on June 5th. The Rocket League Collector’s Edition will include the Supersonic Fury, Revenge of the Battle-Cars and Chaos Run expansions. Four additional vehicles will be included with the retail version but it’s not yet clear if these will be available for other users as well.
As of February, over 10 million copies of the game had been sold, including through PlayStation Plus when it was free. The game cost less than $2 million to make and has made more than $50 million to date.
Rocket League Hoops will release on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One April 26th. You can find out more information on the game’s official website.
