Rocket League's Rumble DLC adds grappling hooks, freeze rays, and more

New, 10 comments

Free to download next month

Some people make the mistake of playing Rocket League as if it's a game of skill, when really, this is a title that demands (and very occasionally rewards) chaos. The latest update to the game, Rumble, seems like it embraces this play-style, giving players the chance to pick up one of 11 special power-ups, from punching-gloves-on-springs to deployable tornados. Here's the full list, via Polygon:

  • The Boot (Kick's an opponent's car)
  • Disruptor (Forces the opponent to drive uncontrollably)
  • Freezer (Freezes the ball in-place)
  • Grappling Hook (Pulls you towards the ball)
  • Haymaker (Punches the ball)
  • Magnetizer (Attracts the ball to your car)
  • Plunger (Grabs the ball via plunger and cord)
  • Power Hitter (Hit everything harder)
  • Spike (Attach the ball to your car when you bump into it)
  • Swapper (Change positions on the field with your opponent)
  • Tornado (Sweep up the ball and cars into a giant funnel cloud)

These power-ups will be available for use in one new game-mode, but the DLC pack will have more (as yet unknown) content. It'll be available as a free download sometime next month, but right now developer Psyonix isn't saying exactly when.
