A standalone Rocket League game is coming to iOS and Android this year. 

Rocket League Sideswipe will be free to play, and promises to bring the core, competitive gameplay of Rocket League, but reimagined for a mobile device.

In terms of gameplay, players will compete from a new perspective on the field in 1v1 or 2v2 matches. Interestingly, games will be fast-paced, with 2-minute 'mini matches' that you can play with friends near or far thanks to online play. 

Rocket League said: "Rocket League Sideswipe will feature mobile controls that are easy to pick up whether you're a master of Rocket League or a new player still learning your way around the field. Plus, there are advanced mechanics, just like Rocket League, for those who want to climb the Competitive Ranks. In the garage, Rocket League Sideswipe will have robust car customization similar to Rocket League. Players can also expect an online Ranking system for competitive play. We have a lot more to reveal about the game in the coming months as we get closer to release,

"We are targeting a worldwide launch for Rocket League Sideswipe later this year for free on iOS and Android. Starting today, players in Australia and New Zealand will be able to join a limited-time Regional Alpha test on Android via the Google Play Store. We’ll have more information on future betas in additional regions in the coming months."
