Here’s a Trailer For Rocket League Hoops

The “Rocket League Hoops” mode adds a dynamic basketball twist to our soccer-meets-driving concept. In addition to the mode itself, this FREE update also comes with a brand new arena, “Dunk House,” where the net itself can be used as a ramp for the ball and Aerials and wall-play is the key to victory.
