Rock the block with a new Hoops Arena | Rocket League®

Streetball roots run deep in sovereign heights

While the biggest names in basketball traditionally hail from Dunk House, there lives a hardcore group of Hoops heads who traded hardwood courts for asphalt. Located in the Sovereign Heights Community Park, The Block Arena is a new outdoor track with a huge reputation in the local streetball scene.

To celebrate its construction, we’re introducing The Block Party, a basketball-focused in-game event featuring some baller Block Party Challenge rewards. Completing event challenges will reward you with the animated Double Dribble Topper, Game Time Player Anthem, a Very Rare Drop, and massive XP rewards.

Looking for the soundtrack to your next big win? Players can take The Block back to the ’80s with the gut-wrenching Jump Player Anthem, written by the legendary Van Halen! This synth-heavy hit single is perfect for your next slam dunk and will be available in the Item Shop for a short time during The Block Party.

Get ready to show off your skills! During The Block Party, Hoops will take over the regularly scheduled 1:00 PM PDT Competitive Tournaments Extra Modes slot on North American servers and the 1:00 PM UTC slot on European servers.

The Block Party starts now and will rock the house until October 18th.

Under the hood

With the launch of the first new Hoops Arena since the mode’s first debut, we’re also announcing our second episode of Under the Hood! This behind-the-scenes series sees Psyonix developers delving into the making of Rocket League, with this episode focusing on The Block Arena, the surrounding landscape of Sovereign Heights, and the history behind its creation. Look here under the hood.

Better get there early for a primo seat. The Block Party will run from October 12 to 18.
