Rocket League is set to make its first foray into the mobile gaming market by announcing ‘Sideswipe’, a standalone mobile game launching in 2021.

While Rocket League has been extremely popular on consoles, PC, and the Nintendo Switch, Psyonix will be releasing the game for iOS and Android later in 2021.

“We’re hard at work on this free mobile game for iOS and Android that takes the core, competitive gameplay of Rocket League and reimagines it for a mobile device,” Psyonix announced on March 24.

“In Rocket League Sideswipe, players compete from a new perspective on the field in 1v1 or 2v2 matches. Games will be fast-paced, 2-minute matches that you can play with friends near or far thanks to online play. “

While top Rocket League players can take advantage of the precision a controller offers, Psyonix assures fans that 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.”

And for those players who are advanced at Rocket League and enjoy grinding competitive, “There are advanced mechanics, just like Rocket League.” They also confirmed car customization and a Ranked system for competitive play.

Early footage and screenshots of Sideswipe reveal it’s quite different from standard Rocket League, as it’s played side-on to suit the game’s swiping control system.

As Sideswipe is a standalone game, it’s unlikely that progress will carry over from players’ main Epic Games accounts. This will likely have its own Rocket Pass, tournaments, and mechanics that sets it apart from the main game.

Players in Australia and New Zealand will be able to join a limited-time Regional Alpha test on Android, but Psyonix will reveal more information about betas in other regions in the coming months.

Developers will be releasing more information on the new handheld version of Rocket League, so we’ll be sure to share all developments with you.

Rocket League is an online multiplayer game, but before you can job into matches, you need to accept the license agreement. Unfortunately, this process can be glitchy and leave players locked out, so we’ve put together this guide to make sure you can complete this task.

Rocket League is one of the world’s most popular games, with its simple concept of adding cars to soccer creating a fan-favorite multiplayer title.

With players able to take part in both casual modes or competitive contests, along with the fact that Rocket League is cross-platform, it’s no surprise that players love jumping into online matches with friends.

The game is easy to understand for new players, but for those booting up the title for the first time, you’ll need to accept Rocket League’s license agreement. Unfortunately, this can be a little buggy, with players known to skip past it by accident or errors preventing it from appearing entirely.

Where to find license agreements in Rocket Legaue

The license agreement should appear for players the first time they open the game, but if you accidentally skipped it, or just never saw it, there is a way to find and accept them.

By going to the ‘Extras’ section in the main menu, you can find all of these agreements from Psyonix and complete this task.

To accept Rocket League’s license agreement:

  1. Open Rocket League, go to the main menu, and select Extras.
  2. In Extras, scroll down and select Legal Agreements.
  3. Open the EULA, Terms of Service, or Privacy agreements.
  4. Press OK to accept the agreement.
  5. Complete this task for all three agreements.

Players need to have accepted these agreements before they can take part in any multiplayer games. This issue generally affects new players to the Rocket League or those who haven’t played the game in a while.

Psyonix also changes and updates the agreements from time to time, so you’ll have to accept the agreements every time they do.

For those who don’t own a console or PC, you’ll be able to enjoy the high-octane action of car-ball soon when Rocket League Sideswipe releases on mobile devices.
