Rocket League studio Psyonix acquired by Epic Games

Rapidly expanding industry monolith Epic Games have snapped up Psyonix, the studio behind esports car-football phenomenon Rocket League. In an official announcement, Psyonix have declared that they're "joining the Epic family", and the game will come to the Epic Games Store. In the short term, that means very little for players, but longer-term, they may eventually stop selling the game on Steam, although they do plan…

Rocket League disables locked loot boxes in Belgium and Netherlands

Carballing sport 'em up Rocket League has disabled loot boxes which require keys to open for players in Belgium and the Netherlands. If you're there, you won't be able to open 'em, and that's that. While many countries are still eyeing paid loot boxes with suspicion, forming committees and signing declarations but not taking much action, Belgium and the Netherlands are going after the types…

Rocket League’s proper cross-platform parties delayed to 2019

Nothing strikes a chill through my heart like delays to long-anticipated cross-platform play systems. Sadly, that fate has befallen Rocket League - a roadmap update has revealed that the "RocketID" system won't arrive until early 2019. You can actually already play with friends who are using smaller, lesser boxes, but only in private matches. Which defeats the whole point, really. There is some good news:…

The 25 best multiplayer games on PC

Multiplayer games are the best type of games, because they're built around the most interesting components known to humans: humans. Men, women, and an awful lot of children. Internet strangers aren't always the friendliest bunch, but they can surprise you in ways that a static system can't. People form the living, beating hearts of the gaming moments I value the most. Join me, then, as…

Rocket League’s ninth season brings some fun extra modes to competitive play today

There's more to pro Rocket League today than punting giant balls into goals, as Season 9 opens up four previously 'casual' playmodes for ranked competitive play. More serious players will have to add cyber-volleyball (Dropshot), rocket basketball (Hoops), motorised ice hockey (Snow Day) and power-up filled anarchy (Rumble) to their car-to-ball resume. On top of this, season 9 brings the usual slew of cosmetic goodies,…

Rocket League adds clubs, overhauls progression and gears up for its first season pass

It's patch day for bizarro esport giant Rocket League. Teased and foretold in aeons past, today's update (the serious-sounding version 1.50) completely overhauls levelling and progression and adds a clubs system so like-minded car-to-ball aficionados can drive under a shared banner. This update also paves the way for the game's first seasonal Rocket Pass, which rolls out next week. While this update introduces no new…

Rocket League’s birthday party kicks off on special pitch

Thrilling futuresport Rocket League celebrated its third birthday on Saturday and, presumably having been held up by the football, today kicked off the birthday party. Guests will get to play carball on a new pitch inspired by Rocket League's big sister, Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars, and can come home with shiny party favours including party hats and cakes to sit atop their sportscars. The event's…

The 100 best-selling games on Steam in 2018 so far

We've just passed the half-way point of 2018, so Ian Gatekeeper and all his fabulously wealthy chums over at Valve have revealed which hundred games have sold best on Steam over the past six months. It's a list dominated by pre-2018 names, to be frank, a great many of which you'll be expected, but there are a few surprises in there. 2018 releases Jurassic World…

Rocket League celebrates its 3rd anniversary next week

Three years of success is a big number, but ten feels far more significant. Good for sporty multiplayer hit Rocket League, then, that it's secretly been around for yonks, known for most of that time as Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle Cars. To celebrate both games coming of age, developers Psyonix are hosting a big birthday bash event starting next week. Within and below; the details of…

Here’s how Rocket League’s Rocket Pass will work

Last month, Psyonix detailed some of its summer plans, including a rather beefy feature update expected to hit Rocket League in July or August. It’s got progression in its crosshairs, and as well as changing levelling and XP, there’s a whole new system designed to dole out rewards as you level up, keeping you in an infinite loop of leaping cars and explosive goals. Yesterday,…

Rocket League’s summer Beach Blast kicks off today

Rocket League knows its audience. While the rest of the gaming works is going bananas over E3, salivating over the next big thing, Rocket League players only want to kick a ball around a bit. With rockets. And cars. As you do. The Beach Blast event went live about two hours ago, and will be continuing through until July 2nd. It offers players the chance to earn a…

Jurassic Park welcomed to Rocket League in next DLC

It's dino a go-go in the ludosphere lately as cross-medium opportunities hatch from the impending launch of the new talkie, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. Frontier's Jurassic World Evolution will have us manage a dinopark, and now Rocket League has declared its own allegiance to humanity's former steeds. New paid DLC later this month will add a Jurassic Park jeep as a sportscar, and yeah yeah…

Rocket League rocks up to the beach with Salty Shores

I had a theory about Rocket League, back when it came out and everyone I knew was enamoured with it. I figured that as players got more experienced, the actual field would become irrelevant as entrepreneuring rocketeers learnt how to boost themselves through the air. I envisioned matches being entirely resolved in the skies, the ball forever hoisted out of my reach. I predicted two…

Rocket League adds cross-platform parties this summer

The beautiful vision of a future where all are united by a passion for cars playing football is coming one step closer to reality, as Rocket League will add cross-platform parties this summer, letting PCpeeps and consolenauts buddy up and ball. That's the big fancy feature on developers Psyonix's latest development roadmap, though before then we'll see a new arena, a summery event, and the…

Rocket League updates with tourneys, music & chat bans

Rocket League is just a little bit more social, a little bit louder and a tad better moderated today. The much-hyped Patch v1.43 has officially rolled out for the surprise Esports mega-hit, adding automated tournament play, an option to actually listen to the game's built-in soundtrack (fancy that) and some developer-level chat moderation features, allowing them to globally gag unpleasantly noisesome players.

Rocket League’s next update makes tourney organization simple

Rocket League's enormous success was long overdue. I liked this game back in 2008, but it didn't seem to catch on until they chopped a few words out of the name. The weight of those extraneous syllables lifted, the game launched into the stratosphere, almost like some kind of supersonic acrobatic rocket-powered battle-car. Psyonix aren't resting on their laurels, either. The game still commands enormously…

Rocket League’s Spring Fever event kicked off today

Though snow is still piled up on my street corner, Rocket League is ready for this winter hell to be over and today launched its Spring Fever event. This brings lots of colourful new cosmetic items to adorn sports cars with, including sprinkled doughnut wheels, a fluffy dandelion, and some fantastic floral trails and goalblasts. It looks wildly at odds with the futuresport's Hot Wheels…

Rocket League’s Tournaments beta test kicked off today

Quick! Round up the team! Round up your mate's team! Round up everyone you know and lock them inside virtual cars to play football, because you only have a few days to officially prove which lot of you are the best at Rocket League. Psyonix today launched an open beta test of their sports car game's new Tournament system, which will handily handle all the…
