Because playing soccer with radio-controlled cars wasn’t already zaaaaany enough, Rocket League is getting a new, free, “epic battle royale” Rumble mode that mixes in 11 even zaaaaanier power-ups to, uh, “enhance” play, developer Psyonix announced during the game’s Championships Series finale in Hollywood last night.

The Mario Kart-style power-ups feature:

  • The Boot (kicks an opponent’s car)
  • Disruptor (forces the opponent to drive uncontrollably)
  • Freezer (freezes the ball in-place)
  • Grappling Hook (pulls you towards the ball)
  • Haymaker (punches the ball)
  • Magnetizer (attracts the ball to your car)
  • Plunger (grabs the ball via plunger and cord)
  • Power Hitter (hit everything harder)
  • Spike (attach the ball to your car when you bump into it)
  • Swapper (change positions on the field with your opponent)
  • Tornado (sweep up the ball and cars into a giant funnel cloud)

Rumble mode will be available in all online playlists, including Private and Exhibition matches, and launching as part of a “much bigger update” sometime in September. Get hype.
