Rocket League

Following on from last week's epic announcement, the Rocket League developer Psyonix has now released a summer roadmap for the popular vehicular soccer video game to put any concerned minds at ease.

This roadmap highlights all of the new features and improvements coming to the game over the next several months. The developer also reassured fans Rocket League would continue to be shaped by the same team as well as the passion and feedback of the community. As for the acquisition itself, there's nothing new to report just yet:

For fans looking to find out more regarding what our acquisition by Epic Games means for Rocket League and Psyonix in the long-term -- there's nothing new to report just yet, but we'll keep you informed as soon as we have an update.

So, what updates can players look forward to? Next month Psyonix will hold the biggest in-game event Rocket League has ever had, featuring several limited time events, new items and more. Here's the rundown:

While the event on the whole will share the same in-game currency for items that can be redeemed inside the event store, the items found in the event store itself will change as we move through different points in the promotion; giving you more in-game items to earn than ever before.

We know that players can sometimes earn more event currency than they sometimes use, so we're addressing that by adding XP Level-Up Packs in the event store as well (a Rocket League first)! That means that players will be able to redeem event currency for XP Level-Up Packs that grant 10 Tier Points for Rocket Pass -- allowing you to boost your Rocket Pass Tiers in a super-fast and super-convenient way!

More details about this upcoming event will be revealed soon. In addition to this, a party-up system will be added to the game along with a better inventory management tool. A number of quality of life updates will be made the trading system as well:

The community has been asking us for quicker ways to party-up with strangers following a good match. That functionality will be coming later this year. Soon, you'll be able to easily party-up with teammates from the post-game screen.

Inventories are growing too, and that calls for better ways to organize all of your in-game items. We're happy to say that additional inventory management tools will also be added via a future update.

Finally, one of our long-term goals for 2019 and beyond is to make a number of under-the-hood, quality-of-life updates to our trading system. We’ll have more to share on that later this year.

The RLCS Season 7 World Championship is also happening in June from 21st to the 23rd. It's taking place at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey and you can purchase your tickets now to catch all the live action from the world's best Rocket League teams.
