The NFL and Rocket League are getting ready for the big game next week with the NFL Super Bowl LV Celebration! It's a Rocket League event that's bringing the brand new game mode, Gridiron, Event Challenges, and the return of the NFL Fan Pack. It all starts February 2 and will be live until February 8.

Welcome To The Gridiron

 

Champions Field has been transformed for this new LTM, complete with hash marks and the NFL logo at the 50-yard line. [WHISTLE BLOWS] Now huddle up! It's time to learn the rules of Gridiron mode:

  • Gridiron is 4 on 4.

  • The standard Rocket League ball has been replaced with an American football.

  • Touching the ball attaches it to the roof of your car. In Spike Rush, the ball would attach to wherever your car made contact, but in Gridiron it will always attach to your roof.

  • If any player touches the ball, that player becomes the ball carrier, setting up the opportunity for hand-offs to teammates or steals by the other team.

  • The carrier can single jump, but double jumping drops the ball. You can also pass the ball by dodging.

  • Each goal is 3 or 7 points: 7 points are awarded if the ball is attached to a player when entering the opponent's goal, and 3 points are awarded if the ball is passed in or if the ball is loose. All own-goals are worth 3 points whether the ball is attached or it's loose.

  • Demos require Supersonic speed just like in standard modes.

  • Stay in bounds! You'll fumble the ball if you cross the line marked on the Arena wall.  

 

Now throw on your pads, get out there, and have some fun! Plus, we're adding three Event Challenges that can be completed to unlock the Gridiron Guru Player Title, NFL Wheels, and 20,000 XP! These Challenges and the Gridiron LTM Playlist are live from February 2 through February 8.

 

Don't worry if you missed out on the NFL Fan Pack the first time it was available. It will return to the Item Shop during the NFL Super Bowl LV Celebration from February 2 through February 8. Be sure to check it out in-game! Equip your favorite team's Decal, hit the Gridiron, and be sure to share some of your wild highlights! Mention @RocketLeague on Twitter using the hashtag #RLGridiron. HUT HUT HIKE!
