Basketball is the second sport to be incorporated into Rocket League Crates Rocket League, after last year’s hockey game mode. It is also just one of many free DLCs that Psyonix has released for its fanbase, others including iconic customization options from franchises such as Portal.



Since Hoops was first announced last month, people have been eagerly awaiting the new mode, inspired by the NBA’s March Madness.
