Brush up on those boosting skills, you're going to need them.

It's already pretty tough to argue against Rocket League being the best multiplayer game of 2015, but things are about to get a lot more fun. With March Madness almost upon us, Psyonix, the team behind the smash-em-up soccer car game, has teased a new game mode they're working on -- and it looks incredible. Get ready, because Rocket League will soon let you swap goals for hoops with the launch of a new basketball mode.

If you've been brushing up on those boost skills, Rocket League's new mode looks like it will provide the perfect opportunity to show them off. Instead of ramming the ball into an industrial-sized soccer goal, you'll need to bounce it into an excessively wide net. It also looks like new courts and stadia will be introduced to give it a more authentic feel.

Despite the tease, Pysonix is keeping quiet about its new game mode. However, the First Four March Madness games tip off March 15th with the First Round happening on the 17th. That probably means you only have a few days to wait before you can begin dunking on rival players.
