Before Rocket League’s upcoming full release in China, Psyonix has issued a roadmap for their updates and events leading up to the holidays, starting with an update on the RocketID feature. RocketID is a cross-platform feature that allows players to set up a code for partying up with different console users, for those unaware. Prior to denials about Rocket League cross-play, there was an original release date of August 2018, which was then pushed back to sometime in late 2018. It seems players will now have to wait until early 2019 for the feature to become available. Psyonix stated that, with Sony’s recent cross-platform announcement, additional changes and preparations can be made for all platforms to ensure an efficient launch of the feature.
New features can also be expected this coming December, detailed below:
December will also see the beginning of the next Rocket Pass with a new suite of items, along with another licensed premium DLC that will release around the same time. We will continue to watch, measure and update how Rocket Pass works and what rewards to offer moving forward, so please remember to tell us your thoughts on Reddit where you can continue to give us suggestions on what to improve!
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.
Who else is excited to play with friends sporting different consoles? Let us know in the comments.
