Psyonix wants the fans for its renowned indie title Rocket League to make a dunk with their flying cars as the Hoops mode update is already heading their way.

The developer has announced that the promised Rocket League basketball update, which players have been clamoring for, is finally set to land on April 26 as part of the indie game's free update.

"By popular demand, Rocket League Hoops mode adds a dynamic basketball twist to our soccer-meets-driving concept," reads the description of the mode's trailer on YouTube.

The basketball mode update will soon introduce a new way to play the popular "car meets soccer" game. Soon enough, car soccer is going to transform into car basketball.

The update will arrive simultaneously on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Steam.

In Rocket League Hoops, gamers will be able to take the matches inside a basketball court, in which they have to toss the ball down into a giant hoop if they want to score.

There's a catch, though. Hoops is a two-and-two mode. Moreover, it will debut with only one arena, dubbed Dunk House. It is expected, though, that more arenas are yet to come.

The new mode will also bring with it the ability for players to quick-save replays and rename them.

To keep the cash flowing in, a paid content named "NBA Flag Pack," priced at $1.99, will soon arrive as well, along with the update. The content will be packed with the logos of every National Basketball Association team.

The Hoops mode update is the most recent in a series of updates to the title in an effort to keep Rocket League fans engaged to the game and to lure more players to give this game a shot as well.

Psyonix says Rocket League has already gained more than 14 million players across different platforms.

In any case, the free update will surely add in interesting, new features along with a bunch of DLC that will certainly pack in excitement to the game.

In the recently held BAFTA Games Awards, Rocket League won different awards, including Family award, Multiplayer award and Best Sports Game award. It is also nominated in the Best Game category, in which Bethesda's Fallout 4 shone the brightest.
