Psyonix took to their site to update fans on the upcoming changes, additions, and delays that will be coming to Rocket League this Fall.
The developers started off the post by giving fans a little bad news. The highly anticipated RocketID, will not be releasing later this year like they promised, however, it will be getting pushed back to early 2019.
Before diving into what’s next, we have an update on RocketID, a feature that many of you are really excited for. While our goal was to release RocketID before the end of 2018, we’ve made the difficult decision to push its release into early 2019. The good news is that with Sony’s recent announcements regarding full cross-platform functionality, we can now make additional changes to prepare RocketID for ALL platforms should we receive permission to do so!
We’re working incredibly hard to ensure that it’s as intuitive, stable, and polished as possible, before releasing it to the world. We know the wait has been frustrating for many of you who are eager for this feature, and we thank you for your patience as we continue to work on cross-platform support.
However, thankfully that is the only bad news within the post as it only gets excited from there on out. The developers went on to mention that Xbox One X users will be getting a new update in the near future that will make the game run 4K at 60 frames-per-second, plus HDR support!
We have one planned update left for 2018, which we’re hoping to release in early December. For our Xbox One X players, your time has come! Enhanced Xbox One X support will be part of this update, complete with 4K at 60 frames-per-second and HDR support! We’ll have more to share on these improvements in the near future.
Finally, the post wraps up with announcing the last in-game event of the year, Frosty Fest. The event will start mid-December as will operate similarly to the Haunted Halloween event, which is running right now. In addition, fans will also be getting a new RocketPass, which will add new tiers to unlock and what not.
Finally, we have one more in-game Event to look forward to this year! Starting in mid-December, Frosty Fest 2018 will operate just like our currently-happening Haunted Hallows Event; you’ll earn Snowflakes for playing matches online and redeem it for holiday-themed items, including a “Golden Gift!” Stay tuned later this fall for Frosty Fest start and end dates.
We’re just as happy to see that everyone is enjoying Rocket Pass, too, along with the new Clubs feature. It looks like many of you are really going after all the rewards and Pro Tiers that Rocket Pass has to offer (and remember: our first Rocket Pass will come to an end on November 26)!
Rocket League is now available for the PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
