Summer of Rocket League
Psyonix has released the latest roadmap for the upcoming content coming to Rocket League over the next few months.
Detailed on the Rocket League website, the summer 2018 roadmap starts in late May with the start of season 8’s competitive season. Players can expect their season 7 rewards as well as a brand new arena, new in-game music, and more.
June will bring a summer-themed event and new licensed DLC. On June 8, the RLCS World Championships will kick off in London and will be streamed live on Twitch.
As per usual, July will see the annual Rocket League birthday celebrations with anniversary events and loot.
Sometime during July and August, a major summer feature update will also launch. This update will make it easier to find friends with the ability to register a unique ID and new, in-game friends list. This feature is intended to more easily facilitate making cross-platform play.
Changes to leveling will be included in a Progression 2.0 update, with the removal of the level 75 level cap and a rebalance to make levels a fixed amount of XP to gain rather than an exponential curve. Players will be assigned a new level at this point based on their experience so far in Rocket League, while new titles and banners can be earned after level 100 to showcase a player’s status.
XP will now only be online only and based on time played in matches, as well as your score. Psyonix’s update also lists a number of new XP-related mechanics being implemented.
The new Rocket Pass system will also be introduced. While it’s not fully fleshed out and developed yet, it will have both free and premium tracks to earn different tiers of loot.
One of the more recent updates to Rocket League came in April and allowed players to create tournaments without leaving a game as well as the addition of WWE and DC Super Heroes Loot.
