Rocket League December update

Rocket League developer, Psyonix, lifts the lid on the game’s upcoming December update.

Psyonix has confirmed that Rocket League’s ‘December update’ will be released on PC and console on December 3, 2018.

Xbox One X owners are the biggest beneficiaries. The game has been updated to run at native 4K resolution, and 60 frames per second. Support is also included for HDR, and supersampling on 1080p displays.

The update also adds online leaderboards for Ranked Extra Modes, and a tweak to the XP/Progression System that should result in more weekly win bonuses.

In terms of new content, the big-ticket item is 2018’s fifth and final Monstercat playlist. It will include Monstercat Instinct artists, Speedy and Extra Life community flags, and additional Monstercat artist flags

Finally, there will be the various bug fixes, balance changes, and quality of life improvements.

Psyonix promise more news on Rocket Pass 2 and Frosty Fest 2018 once the update has been released.

Rocket League is available now on PC, Mac, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One.
