Rocket League's Hoops Udpate out now


Update: The Hoops update for Rocket League is out now, allowing you do slam dunk with your rocket fuelled vehicles.

We can't wait to try this one out as it is sure to be a lot of fun.

The patch notes are below:

General

- The ‘Hoops’ 2v2 mode has been added as an unranked playlist, and is also available in Private Matches and Exhibition mode at any team size.
- Exhibition and Private Match now have a “Game Mode” selector. The mode you select determines which maps you can choose – for instance, “Hoops” can only be played on the “Dunk House” map.
- During Overtime, the in-game UI clock now counts upwards to indicate how long the overtime has lasted.
- New “Cosmic” Arena has been added to the “Rocket Labs” playlist
- After scoring in Free Play, there will no longer be a 3/2/1 countdown.

Stats

- ‘Dunks’ stats has been added with this DLC.
- When a player scores a basket/goal with any NBA flag equipped, it will increase your stat on that NBA flag.

UI/UX

- Players can now trigger an automatic replay save mid-game, so they don’t have to wait until the match concludes and remember to save it then.
- Auto-Save is triggered by holding the activation button during gameplay. When triggered, the save will be queued and a message will appear in the chatbox indicating the action. A replay tick mark is automatically added to the replay at the timestamp the player triggered the autosave.
- Players can now manually name (and rename) replays.
- Select “Save Replay” at the end of game and the user can now provide a custom name.
- Users can also rename replays in the frontend.
- Mouse/Keyboard – A pencil icon appears when mousing over a replay. Clicking the Pencil brings up the rename dialog.
- Controller – Pressing Triangle button on the Replay menu brings up the rename dialog.

Bug fixes

- Spectators will no longer see Camera Shake in Player View if the option is disabled.
- Fixed a rare issue that would allow the ball to exit the arena.

Original: Rocket League Hoops is the next addition to the ever popular top selling rocket, car fueled sports game that is Rocket League.

The upcoming basketball mode, will launch on April 26 as part of a free update, sees players trying to get the ball through a hoop, just like in basketball, and comes complete with the new Dunk House arena.



Accompanying the mode are NBA Flag Pack, although this comes at a cost of around £1.50, offering immediate access to all 30 NBA team flags, with an NBA logo flag free with the Hoops update.

In related news, the game has now passed over 14 million players, which is just incredible really. It seems this one will continue to go from strength to strength.
