Rocket LeagueÂ is football with flying cars. Or, if youâ€™re American, soccer with flying cars. But next week youâ€™ll be able to try it both ways, when the multiplayer game adds a â€œGridironâ€� mode based on American football. Itâ€™s a cross-promotion with the NFL, celebrating Super Bowl 55 from February 3rd to the 8th.
Gridiron mode replaces the normal soccer-style court with a football field and the ball with a handegg, four players (cars) to a side. Touching the ball will stick it to your car, at which point youâ€™re â€œrunningâ€� until you get tackledâ€”the car that hits you then carries the ball. Single jumps are allowed, but if you use one of Rocket Leagueâ€™s signature double-jumps, you drop the ball. This mode includes out-of-bounds areas, seven-point â€œtouchdownsâ€� if you carry the ball in, and three-point â€œfield goalsâ€� if it goes in unattached.
Naturally, there are cosmetics to win: wheels emblazoned with the NFL logo, plus a â€œGridiron Guruâ€� player title and a ton of experience points. Players can also buy the NFL Fan Pack, a set of car skins for each NFL team that was introduced last year.
