Psyonix has finally launched the mobile spin-off for the popular game Rocket League. The mobile version, Rocket League Sideswipe, can now be downloaded from Google Play as well as the App Store. The game has managed to get mostly positive reviews and favorable ratings.

The basic gameplay is the same with easy mobile-friendly touch controls. However, the developer has provided support for external controllers.

Which controllers can be used in Rocket League Sideswipe?

The official Psyonix website says that all the controllers can be used to play Rocket League Sideswipe. However, it further adds that the controller has to be compatible with your device. Interestingly, the game lets you play with a controller and use touch controls at the same time.

How to connect a controller to play Rocket League Sideswipe?

Some players find it easier to play with a controller. Connecting your controller to your mobile device is a quick and easy process. Here’s a quick rundown on how to do it:

  • Press the button on your controller that turns on Bluetooth. For instance, you can activate the Bluetooth in PS4 and PS4 controllers by pressing the mid button with the logo
  • Next, turn the Bluetooth of your device on
  • In Bluetooth settings, look for your controller’s name and pair the devices. If your phone doesn’t connect to the controller, try pairing them a few more times. If it still doesn’t work, then chances are that they are not compatible

Once the device and controller are connected, you can launch the game and start playing right away.

The controller support has sparked debates on Reddit. Some users claim that players with controllers will have an edge. Other users have commented that the mobile controls were easy and customizable.

It will be interesting to see how the debate turns out.
