Rocket League Double Drops

Rocket League is continuing to celebrate its second birthday in a big way. Building upon the Anniversary Update that went live yesterday, developer Psyonix announced that for the first time ever players will get double drops this weekend. From today to Monday, July 10 at 5pm GMT, players will get crates and painted versions of items more frequently.

Here’s the full announcement from Psyonix’s website where they tease that this is just the beginning of the third year for Rocket League:

But that’s not all we wanted to do for our second anniversary, which is why we’re happy to announce our first-ever Rocket League Double Drop-Rate Weekend! Starting right now (July 6) through Monday, July 10 at 5pm GMT, all uncommon (or greater) free customization items and active Crates will drop more frequently post-match. What’s more, your chances of earning a Painted version of an item (in or out of a Crate) are doubled during the promotional period.

There’s more to come, of course, as Rocket League as an esport has never been stronger. The first days of Collegiate Rocket League Summer Series are just a few days away, while Season 4 of the Rocket League Championship Series is right around the corner. A massive national tournament is coming this summer to NBC; Rocket League is headed to ESPN and the X Games, and a brand-new Rocket League esports website is coming your way by the end of the year.

It’s great to see Rocket League continue to build an audience (one that will assuredly continue to grow due to a free-to-play version launching in China within the next year) and keep players satisfied enough to keep coming back. They’ve done a great job showing developers how to not only culminate an audience, but also keep it.

Let us know in the comments if you’ll be playing Rocket League this weekend to celebrate its birthday!
