Season 9 introduces the new Hot Wheels Rivals playable arena for Casual Playlists, Tournaments, Private Matches, and Offline Matches as well as a new Hot Wheels 50th Anniversary flag, player banner, and wheels for all players to snap up. Beyond these branded items, you can get the Monstercat collaboration items as well, including a special music playlist, topper, and a set of flags.Competitive Season 8 has ended, which means titles and items will be given out to players, including goodies in the form of special Rocket Boosts. That means Season 9 is now active, and fans will have to take part in a "soft reset" that necessitates placement matches for each playlist. Check out the full patch notes, as well as bug fixes, below.
Rocket League's latest event ends July 23rd at 8 PM (EDT), and unlike with other events there's no grace period for your in-game event currency. Yes, that means your balloons will pop when Rocket League's birthday party ends.So, if you've got your eye on another event reward or two, now's the time to grind to get the last of the balloons you need.Unfortunately, this means that the Anniversary playlist is also ending. Though the playlist is ending, Throwback will soon be playable in Private Matches, Tournaments, and Local Matches, but I'm disappointed that the playlist is wrapping up with the event. I'm a huge fan of the Throwback map, and I even think the arena deserves a permanent playlist.
Anyways, with Rocket League Trading third birthday party winding down, let's look ahead at what Psyonix has in store for the rest of the summer.Cross Platform Parties are a long-requested feature that are finally making their way to Rocket League. According to the Summer Roadmap, players will soon be able to register for a unique id that will allow them to www.lolga.com party up and play with players on any platform.Of course Cross Platform games are already a part of the game, but there's sadly no way to link up with your friend on a different system. Psyonix has set this deadline for this and the remaining Summer updates for July-August, meaning we might have to wait until near the end of August to play with our cross-platform friends.
