New Rocket League mode is Battle Royale for people who hate Battle Royale


You’re probably thinking “not another battle royale” and you’d be justified. However, Rocket League’s new Knockout game mode seems to be for people who hate Battle Royale games.

Knockout is part of Rocket League’s spring event called coup de grace, which runs from April 27 to May 10. This new game mode involves the use of driving/soccer skills that you would use in normal gameplay in an eight-player destruction derby-style battle royale.

In addition to the existing movesets, there are three new skills to master: Attack, Block, and Grab. The attack basically consists of dodging an opponent to send them flying if placed correctly. Blocking is essentially a parry that reflects attacks back at the opposing player with proper timing. Grab lets you, well, grab other players and throw them around.
