The limited-time modes include Heatseeker Live, 2v2 Beach Ball Live, 3v3 Dropshot Rumble, Rocket Labs: 3v3 Loophole Live. They won't all go live at once; dev Psyonix will sprinkle them across the weeks of July:

  • July 1-7: Ford F-150 and Heatseeker Live
  • July 7: Summer Formal
  • July 8-14: Knight Rider and 2v2 Beach Ball Live
  • July 15-21: Back to the Future and 3v3 Dropshot Rumble
  • July 22-28: Jurassic World and Rocket Labs: 3v3 Loophole Live

In Heatseeker, the ball will go towards the opposing net when hit. Beach Ball, like the name implies, features a lighter beach ball than the usual soccer ball. In Dropshot Rumble, the rules of the game have been tweaked to breaking hexagon panels on the floor with the ball instead of the usual ball-in-net goal. Loophole asks players to score points by dropping the ball into holes on the floor.

In other Rocket League news, a Formula 1 crossover DLC was recently released. It costs $20 and includes decals like the Alfa Romeo and McLaren.

Rocket League is available free-to-play on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, PC, and macOS.
