What’s Coming After The Autumn Update

Happy Update Reveal Day! (Yes, it’s a real holiday.) We just announced that our Autumn Update is coming to all platforms on September 28, and you can check out the reveal page for details on the new ‘Farmstead’ seasonal Arena, ‘Accelerator’ Crate, Player Banners, and more!

But what lies beyond the Autumn Update? What features are we working on? How many different dragon-themed Player Banners are we cooking up? Read on below.

Tournaments Beta
A Tournament system is something we've wanted for Rocket League since our launch in July 2015. In-game Tournaments would allow all of our players, from Rookie to Rocketeer, to take part in competitions without ever having to leave the game client.

Our goal is to launch a Tournaments Beta before the end of 2017. We can tell you for sure that the beta will run through Steam, but all other info, like timing and sign-up details will be revealed once we're closer to the beta’s launch. For those wondering why the beta is "PC-only," it's because Steam allows us to make changes and collect performance feedback more rapidly than any other platform.

Once the beta is complete and we’ve had time to digest feedback and make appropriate changes, we will then aim to move Tournaments to a regular feature on all platforms in a future update for 2018.

Party Time!
Along with a Tournaments Beta before the year is done, we will also be testing a new Party System that we’re building directly into Rocket League. When finished, this new system will allow you to party up directly via PsyNet instead of the party systems currently used through Steam, Xbox Live, or the PlayStation Network. Our first test(s), however, will be limited to Steam players.

Once your account is flagged for the new Party system, your game will automatically sync with your Steam Friends List information and allow you to create a party via PsyNet. You’ll still use the 'Create Party' button as you normally would, but instead of seeing a Party invite in Steam, you’ll see new in-game notifications alerting you to a Party invite.

While the PsyNet Party System is Steam-only, this is the first step in enabling the possibility of supporting cross-platform parties at a later date. We’ll have more information about the new Party System once we’re closer to launch.

Events Coming Soon
As detailed on our Autumn Update page, we are also debuting a new 'Events' system, which introduces limited-time events that provide players with the opportunity to earn additional car customizations. Using a new item called the 'Decryptor,’ (obtained as drops after online matches) players will be able to unlock any unopened Crate in their inventory without having to purchase a Key. Additional information will be provided closer to the launch of the events themselves later this year.

Here's to hoping somebody can hack the crap out of the "LAN Support", and get us playable Workshop maps, a server browser, etc...

The tournment system looks awsome, there is only 1 few things that bother's me

From the screenshots we can assume that the tourments are created by players and that the Min and Max rank can be defined by the creator.
so ... Why would a silver player join a tournment with min rank (silver) max rank (grand champion) knowing he would probably get crushed in the begining?

Starcraft has a real cool tournment system, it works something like this...

tournments are generated from time to time... by the server

When a player joins a tournment, the server selects the apropriate tournment for the user.

Or the silver player could just get better. Jk but seriously if you're in silver the point of these tournaments is to learn something and maybe one day reach a higher level. We all started at the bottom and had to work are way up.

Honestly the coolest update since I started playing. Absolutely can't wait for tournaments. There's nothing here that isn't awesome.

I'd like to request a haunted map for Halloween though. And maybe seasonal maps could be available for free play/custom matches?

well thats what ranked matches are for, you get better and u rank up :p.
With tournments the case is diferent, lower teams will play against high level teams, and that is just annoying if the difference is too high
Its annoying for the lower ranks
and
its annoying for the high ranks, since its just a waste of good 10 minutes (assuming its best of 3) :P
