Psyonix has confirmed that the long-awaited cross-platform Friends Update will come to Rocket League next week.
The Rocket League Friends Update will roll out to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC on February 19, 2019.
The update will add a new Friends List to the game’s main menu that is split into four categories: Friends, RocketID, Recent Players, and Alerts.
The Friends category lists players on the platform you are using, and the RocketID list will include players from all four platforms. Unique RocketID’s will be assigned to every player once the update is live. The Recent Players section includes a list of team mates and opponents from recent matches. Requests, invites, and clubs are all handled in the Alerts section.
The update also adds Dropshot, Hoops, Snow Day, and Rumble to Rocket League‘s free play options, and, naturally, there are some bug fixes and quality of life improvements.
How to change your Rocket League RocketID
Psyonix says that every player will be auto-assigned a RocketID constructed of a player’s username and four randomly generated numbers. The word portion of the RocketID can be changed at any time.
Psyonix has also announced that one of February’s planned in-game events has been cancelled due to ‘multiple factors behind-the-scenes’. As recompense, there will be four days of combined Double XP and Double Painted drop-rates from March 7, 2019.
