Rocket League Is Adding a Custom Training Mode

Rocket League Custom Training

While a lot of Rocket League‘s charm is due to how easy it is to pickup and play, it’s also very difficult to master. Thankfully, developer Psyonix are going to make it a bit easier to learn the minutia in their vehicle soccer game. This will come in the form of a custom training mode where players can create their own training sequences. Players can expect the mode in the game’s next update.

Here’s the editing process, courtesy of the Rocket League blog.

When you create your own custom training sequence, you’ll be asked to specify a few things up front:

  1. A name for your creation.

  2. Which map you want to train in.

  3. What type of training sequence it is (Striker or Goalie).

  4. How difficult it’s going to be (Rookie, Pro, All-Star).

  5. Which “tags” best describe your training sequence (Dribbling, Wall Shots, etc.)

Once all that’s settled, you can then get down to editing your sequence in-game.  What you’ll see first is your ‘Shot List’ that contains every shot you’ve set up as part of your new sequence.  From here you can pick a shot to edit, add new shots, or delete ones you don’t want to keep.

Editing a specific shot is the most important aspect of this new feature. You can place the car and the ball wherever you want on the field and you can specify the direction and speed of the ball with a full trajectory preview that helps you plan things out.

Each shot can be tested in real-time, modified, and tested again to make it quick and easy to develop your new training sequence.

After you’ve created the training sequence, you’ll be able to upload it online for other players to download. There will be a browse tab that will allow players to find sequences quickly, and favorite which ones they enjoy. Psyonix is looking to improve the custom training mode over time and are looking to add more types and options.
