Kobe Fly-ant

Even games as good as Rocket League require fresh updates to keep their fanbase engaged, and it looks like Psyonix has struck gold yet again with the title's upcoming Hoops patch. The new mode – which basically turns the title into basketball with cars as opposed to football with cars – looks like a simple tweak, but the simple act of lobbing balls into baskets is going to significantly switch up the experience we suspect.

It's due out for free on 26th April, and there'll be an official NBA flags pack available alongside it for the low price of $1.99. It's worth noting that you'll be playing Hoops in an all-new arena named 'Dunk House', whereby the net can be used as a ramp for you to obtain serious hang-time. This game's apparently got 14 million active users at the time of typing, which is quite extraordinary really, isn't it? Check out the trailer below.
