Psyonix has released new information on the next phase of Rocket League with the game's fall 2019 roadmap. Rocket League is currently celebrating it's Radical Summer, offering items and gear related to 1980s films and culture. For a limited time, players will still be able to acquire all of the new items as well as go up ranks in Rocket Pass 3.
Rocket League has been one of the most successful titles for Psyonix. So much so that the studio was acquired by Epic Games back in early May. Radical Summer is one of the biggest content drops in some time, offering players a new mode based on Ghostbusters, as well as cosmetic items, and a map. The title has garnered a dedicate community, and it's one of the first to support full crossplay on every platform.
Over on the game's official blog, Psyonix laid out what's coming to Rocket League later in the fall. Firstly, the latest Rocket Pass will be extended to August 27. The fourth Rocket Pass will then launch on the 28. Weekly Challenges will change a bit during Rocket Pass 4's duration. Players will now be able to go back and complete challenges from previous weeks alongside new challenges that are added every following week. Competitive Season 11 will come to an end on the same day as Rocket Pass 3, which also marks when Competitive Season 12 begins. As with previous seasons, players will earn unique rewards based on whichever rank they achieved by the final day.
A major addition is coming to Rocket League in the form of High Dynamic Range audio. Psyonix will give a more extensive look at that in the coming weeks. As for other changes, new stats will be added to the game in the form of "High Five" and "Low Five." It can be achieved by hitting into your teammate(s) after scoring a goal. The difference between the two is one is done in the air while the other is on the ground. An additional stat will also be added for the Hoops game mode. Haunted Hallows is making a return this fall but Psyonix has held off on sharing too many details as to how it'll be different this year. Scheduled tournaments are also coming, and will allow players to compete online among one another from home. Finally, additional changes and improvements are coming to the previously announced content from May like the party-up system, inventory management, and trading.
Rocket League is one of the most unique competitive titles of this console generation, as well as one of the most unique eSport games around. While none of this new content is groundbreaking by any means, it only improves an already spectacular game. Fans who've stuck with Rocket League have plenty of reasons to get excited for the next couple months of content.
