Latest Steam Announcements for Rocket League

 
Who's ready to party?? Our Boost Meter is full and we're ready to celebrate Rocket League's Fifth Anniversary! It's hard to believe it's been five years since we first hit the pitch. Now, skills have improved and we're ready to dish assists, hit aerial goals, and earn some all-new items inspired by Rocket League history in our newest in-game event!

Even though Rocket League's official Fifth Anniversary isn't until July 7, we're starting the party early with a two-week in-game event featuring an Event Store with unlockable items and Limited Time Modes. Start earning Balloons following Online Matches and redeem them in the event store for items like the Psyonix II Wheels or the Party Horn Boost, or turn them in for XP Packs to Tier Up your Rocket Pass. Golden Eggs have also returned to the Event Store and contain items from Champions Series 1, 2, 3, and 4.

Two Limited Time Modes will be featured throughout the event for one week each. Spike Rush is live now for a week, and will be followed by 2v2 Heatseeker, which is live from July 6 to July 13.

We want to thank our amazing community for five incredible years of passion and continued support. We know this milestone wouldn't be possible without you! We hope you enjoy our Fifth Anniversary Event. Here's to five more years and beyond!
Get ready for the latest set of items! The Momentum Series will start appearing as Blueprints and in the Item Shop tomorrow.

The Momentum Series has more than a dozen all-new items, like the super sleek Peregrine TT, the Interstellar Animated Decal, and the Huntress Decal for Fennec. But, there's one item in particular that may pull you in: the Gravity Bomb Goal Explosion. Instead of being blasted away when a goal is scored, this Goal Explosion sucks in the cars with its gravitational pull! Check out some of the items featured in the Momentum Series in the slideshow below.

Gravity Bomb will be available in the Item Shop tomorrow at 1 p.m. PDT (8 p.m. UTC) for 48 hours. Be sure to check back each day to catch a glimpse at some of the new items, including Painted and Special Edition variants!









Scheduled Release: 6/16/2020, 10 a.m. PDT / 5 p.m. UTC

  • The v1.78 update prepares Rocket League for future content releases
  • Made improvements to Bump and Demolition detection

CHANGES AND UPDATES
Demolitions and Bumping

Based on player feedback, we are making some improvements to Bump and Demolition detection. It is important to note that even with these fixes, Bumps and Demos will never be perfect in online play due to latency. However, after testing these changes with a variety of prominent community members & esports players, we feel this is a positive change that will reduce inconsistencies.

The rules to trigger a Demolition are now as follows:

  • Supersonic Check [UNCHANGED]
    • You are in the Supersonic State (trails visible/active on wheels)
      • Supersonic State activates at 2200 speed (max speed is 2300)
  • Going below 2100 speed instantly exits the Supersonic State
    • Going below 2200 speed, but above 2100, remains Supersonic for one second before exiting unless you accelerate back above 2200
  • Speed Check [UNCHANGED]
    • Your speed in your forward direction is at least 2100 at the time of impact
  • Forward Hit Check [NEW]
    • The line connecting your Center of Mass to the Impact Location is within 40 degrees of your forward direction
  • Victim Hit Check [NEW]
    • The line connecting the Impact Location to the Victim’s Center of Mass is within [55-90] degrees of your forward direction
    • This angle scales based on the Forward Hit Check result
      • For all impacts within 35 degrees of your forward direction, this check uses a 90 degree angle
      • For impacts between 35 and 40 degrees of your forward direction, this check scales linearly from 90 degrees down to 55. This reduces “sideswipe” demos and other undesirable use cases
  • Bumps use the same set of requirements minus the speed / supersonic checks.

Shout out to Rocket_Sledge, Lethamyr, amustycow, Rocket Science, HoraryHellfire2, Turbopolsa, Rizzo, and Sizz for help with testing and feedback!

BUG FIXES

It's hard to believe Rocket League is approaching its fifth birthday next month! With this major milestone on the horizon, we want to let our community know now that there's a lot to look forward to in the second half of 2020, including new and updated features coming to the game.

We're working on a big update to Rocket League later this summer, and while we're not quite ready to reveal everything coming to the game just yet, be on the lookout over the next few months. However, we are excited to announce that we'll be celebrating Rocket League's Fifth Anniversary with a two-week event starting at the end of this month with Limited Time Modes, and Rocket League- and Psyonix-themed items in the event store. These items and modes will be revealed in the next few weeks.

There will be a small game update going live tomorrow in preparation for the Fifth Anniversary event, plus a new Item Series that we'll reveal next week. The update will go live on all platforms tomorrow at 10:00 a.m. PDT (5 p.m. UTC).

We're very excited to talk about what we're working on as we get closer to the major update, so stay tuned this summer as we'll have plenty of info to share!
At last, the fan-favorite Limited Time Mode, Heatseeker, has returned for the final weekend of the Modes of May! And that's not all. 2XP Weekend will be live throughout the weekend too!

In case you missed it when it debuted in April, Heatseeker is a rapid 3v3 mode where the ball automatically seeks the net. Every time the ball is touched, or it hits the backboard, it increases speed, so be ready to send it back to your opponents. First to seven goals wins! You can find the Limited Time mode in the Play Online menu under the Heatseeker tab.

Heatseeker, along with all other Online Modes, will grant double the amount of base experience via the "+100% special event XP Bonus." This includes all Casual, Competitive, and Extra Mode Playlists.

Both Heatseeker and 2XP are live now and will last until Tuesday, May 26 at 9 a.m. PDT (4 p.m. UTC). Enjoy both before they're gone. Good luck and have fun!
Close out the Modes of May with an XP Boost! A 2XP Weekend will go live starting Thursday at 9 a.m. PDT (4 p.m. UTC), and will last an extra day through Memorial Day! 

It all starts at the same time Heatseeker, the fan-favorite Limited Time Mode, returns. Heatseeker, along with all other Online Modes, will grant double the amount of base experience via the "+100% special event XP Bonus." This includes all Casual, Competitive, and Extra Mode Playlists. 

Check out the official start and end times below, and enjoy Heatseeker and 2XP through the weekend!

  • 2XP Start Time: Thursday, May 21 at 9 a.m. PDT (4 p.m. UTC)
  • 2XP End Time: Tuesday, May 26 at 9 a.m. PDT (4 p.m. UTC)

 
Here comes the BOOM! Boomer Ball is live all weekend as part of Rocket League's Modes of May!

Popularized by the Rocket League community, Boomer Ball has fun with mutators and puts a high-flying, lightning-fast twist on 3v3 soccar. Boost amount is unlimited and is now 1.5x stronger than typical boost. That means it launches you farther and faster than the standard boost you're used to. The ball speed is set to super fast, bounciness is increased to super high, and ball physics are super light. Touch the ball and see just how far and fast you can launch it!

Enjoy Boomer Ball until Monday, May 18 at 9 a.m. PDT (4 p.m. UTC). Find it in the Boomer Ball tab in the Play Online menu. Check back next week when the Modes of May wraps up with Heatseeker! Have fun with Boomer Ball!
Get ready for the BOOM! Boomer Ball is going live as the third Limited Time Mode featured during the Modes of May. Before it goes live on Thursday, here's everything you need to know about Rocket League's newest mode.

Boomer Ball plays with mutators to put a high-flying, lightning-fast twist on 3v3 soccar. Boost amount is unlimited and is now 1.5x stronger than typical boost. That means it launches you farther and faster than the standard boost you're used to. The ball speed is set to super fast, bounciness is increased to super high, and ball physics are super light. Touch the ball and see just how far and fast you can launch it! Other than that, standard soccar rules apply.

Boomer Ball was popularized by Rocket League's creative community, so we're excited to add it as a casual Online Playlist this weekend. Look out for it starting Thursday at 9 a.m. PDT (4 p.m. UTC) until Monday at 9 a.m. PDT (4 p.m. UTC). We hope you enjoy this frantic Limited Time Mode throughout the weekend!
Who's up for some fun in the sun? Beach Ball is live in Rocket League now until Monday, May 11 at 9 a.m. PDT (4 p.m. UTC). It's the second Limited Time Mode featured during the Modes of May!

Hit the beaches of Salty Shores in this feelgood, 2v2 mode. The typical Rocket League ball has been transformed into a beach ball, making it lighter and causing hits to curve. The curves can be difficult to predict, so be ready!

You can find the unranked mode in the Play Online menu under the Beach Ball tab. Matches played will grant the same amount of XP as other modes, so you'll still Tier Up your Rocket Pass at the same speed as other Playlists.

Different Limited Time Modes will be featured each weekend throughout the Modes of May. Be sure to play later this month when Boomer Ball and Heatseeker arrive! Good luck, and have fun!
Two fan-favorites collide to kick off the Modes of May in Rocket League! Check out a different Limited Time Mode featured each weekend throughout the month! First up: Dropshot Rumble!

Just like the name suggests, the two Extra Modes have collided for the action of Dropshot enhanced by the zany power-ups from Rumble. Enjoy the Limited Time Mode all weekend long! The mode is live now and will be playable until Monday, May 4 at 9 a.m. PDT (4 p.m. UTC).

Like other Limited Time Modes, each mode will be Unranked and found in a separate tab in the Play Online menu. They will also grant the same amount of XP as all other Online Playlists, so you'll still Tier Up your Rocket Pass 6 level as usual. Good luck out there!
