Tournaments Beta Coming to Steam February 21-23

Postby Dirkened on Wed Feb 14, 2018 10:26 am


We’re building organized competition into Rocket League, and we need your help to test it!

Ahead of its official release on all platforms in our Spring Update, the 'Tournaments Beta' version of Rocket League will be available for download on Steam starting Wednesday, February 21, with the beta ending on Friday, February 23. The beta is purpose-built to help us test functionality and the new UI we have created for the Tournaments system. Check out the trailer for the Tournaments Beta up top!

How do you get into the beta? Easy! If you own a copy of Rocket League on Steam, all you’ll need to do, starting February 21, is 1) go to your Steam Library on your computer and right-click Rocket League, 2) choose ‘Properties,’ 3) click the ‘BETAS’ tab in the pop-up window, and 4) choose ‘Tournaments Beta’ from the drop-down list. After closing the pop-up window, your Steam client will update Rocket League to the beta.

Once you have the Tournaments Beta downloaded, you will be able to create your own tournaments and join competitions created by other players.

A few things to keep in mind if you want in on the beta:
  • The ‘Tournaments Beta’ version of Rocket League replaces the ‘Live’ version you already have installed, but it will NOT erase your XP, inventory, replays, or other player data.
    • Your control configuration and some audio and video settings may change.
  • Competitive Playlists will not be available in the Tournaments Beta.
    • Other functionality may also be limited.
  • Once the Tournaments Beta is over, or at anytime during the beta if you want to hop into a Competitive Playlist, simply go back to the ‘BETAS’ tab in the menu we mentioned above, choose ‘NONE - Opt out of all beta programs,’ from the same drop-down list, and Steam will download the latest ‘Live’ version of Rocket League.
  • There is no cross-platform functionality in the Tournaments Beta.
  • Beta start time: 10am PST on February 21
  • Beta end time: 5pm PST on February 23
We’ll be taking in all of your feedback about the beta on our Subreddit, as well as our Facebook and Twitter pages.

Oh, and that new logo you spied in the trailer up above? We’re going to be celebrating the 10th anniversary of Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars all year long, so look for the logo in all of our trailers throughout 2018!

Awesome!!

Is there a more detailed info on how this will work?

Given the short time scheduled for the beta, it seems there is a fixed set of features to be tested, with little room for further improvements.

I bet they want to make sure it works outside of their dev office and they want feedback from the playerbase before they make any additional changes or add more features. I''m sure we'll see another beta (or even a full release) soon after this one

It's a server browser .You can choose what rank is required for example only diamonds or silver to platinum to join in. Rumble should be included thats what I saw on the picture.
