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:…

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 kicks off at Salty Shores next week

Dig your bucket and spade out the shed, put the ice packs in the freezer, wrestle the frisbee off the dog, and for goodness' sake buy some new sunscreen you daft lobster, because Rocket League is off to the seaside in a new level next week. The new sports arena is Salty Shores, which looks like it's set around the Santa Monica Pier (as you…

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…

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…

Rocket League’s Tournaments hit beta soon, cross-platform parties due later this year

The makers of Rocket League have laid out their update plans for the next few months and beyond, with the first big addition being a beta test of the new tournaments feature starting some time this month. The 'bad' news is that we need to wait longer for cross-platform multiplayer parties, which will let us team up with consoleers, but that's like griping about waiting…

2017 Steam Award winners include PUBG, Cuphead & Witcher

We've already seen which games sold best on Steam last year, but a perhaps more meaningful insight into movin' and a-shakin' in PC-land is the games that people feel warmest and snuggliest about. To that end, Valve have announced the winners of the 2017 Steam Awards, a fully community-voted affair which names the most-loved games across categories including best post-launch support, most player agency, exceeding…

Rocket League serves autumn update bounty

Autumn is here and Rocket League [official site] certainly has noticed, last night launching its big Autumn Update with new arenas for carball as well as some decent new features. We get to ball around a beautiful new farmyward sportszone, new regulation-shape versions of the Wasteland and Starbase ARC arenas, and day and snowy variants of several other maps. That's the magic of doing sports…

Rocket League autumn update hits 28th with a farm map

An autumnal farmyard map will come to Rocket League [official site] with the next big update alongside those promised standardised versions of oddly-shaped carball pitches, developers Psyonix have confirmed. Last night they announced that the Autumn Update will launch on September 28th, and also started revealing what will follow that. They're working on an in-game tournament system, which will likely hit beta this year then…
