Developer Psyonix has announced that Rocket League will get cross-platform party support this summer.
There is an update planned for July or August that will bring the long-awaited feature to the game.
Cross-Platform Friends & Parties
- Register an in-game ID that is a combination of a name with a unique code, like Scarab#7777
- Add friends from other platforms by entering their ID into the new, in-game friends list
- Party up with your new cross-platform friends and play online!
It isn’t clear, at the moment, which platforms this cross-platform party support will involve. Presumably it will work in a similar way to how cross-platform play works now on Rocket League: the PC version can connect to consoles, but the consoles can’t connect with one another.
Further to the cross-platform party support announcement, Psyonix also announced Rocket Pass. It will include tiers of unlockable content.
Here’s the official description:
“Our ‘Rocket Pass’ system consists of multiple Tiers of earnable content. You increase your Tier by leveling up normally and you’ll unlock new, unique content as you go. Each ‘Rocket Pass’ will last for a few months before it’s retired and a new Pass will take its place with new content to unlock.
The ‘Rocket Pass’ has both Free and Premium tracks so everybody has something to work for. The Free track contains new cosmetic items as well as Decryptors and exclusive in-game Titles, while the Premium track will have a flat cost to unlock. You will be able to preview Premium track content before you buy the unlock to access it.”
