Now that Rocket League is free-to-play, developer Psyonix has outlined the official patch notes for the game’s latest update.
It mirrors last week’s patch but adds a few more notes about Competitive and the start of Season 1.
Season 1 introduces three new ranks to Competitive, removes the Solo Standard mode, adds a level 10 requirement for Competitive play, and more. There’s also a new Tournament system that Psyonix said feels like Rocket League esports but for all ranks, where players can participate in daily tournaments to rank up and receive rewards.
In celebrating Rocket League’s transition to a free-to-play model, Psyonix has partnered with Epic Games’ Fortnite for Rocket League’s first new in-game event. Titled Llama-Rama, it kicks off this Saturday with some crossover items, concepts with Fortnite, and more.
The most prominent addition to Rocket League thanks to the free-to-play update is cross-progression. This feature lets players carry over their save data from Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One by connecting to an Epic Games account.
Anyone who claims Rocket League on the Epic Games Store will be gifted a $10 coupon that can be used on any game purchase over $15. It’s that simple. Add Rocket League to your library before October 23, get $10 off of a game.
The $10 can’t be spent on pre-orders or in-game microtransactions. Also, it has to be used before 1st November.
