Cross-Platform Party and Summer Roadmap Update

Hello everyone! We’ve been hard at work finalizing our upcoming Rocket League update for the end of August;  because everything is not releasing at once, we wanted to give you a clear idea of what you can expect later this month and into September.

First, the most pressing news: we are still putting the finishing touches on RocketID -- better known as Cross-Platform Parties -- by making sure that it lives up to our standards and yours. With that in mind, we have decided to target RocketID for September (pending first-party certification) instead of this month as we had originally planned. It was a tough decision to make, yes, but our focus on quality -- even at the expense of our schedule -- is in place so that we can provide you with the excellent play experience that you deserve.

Though RocketID has been pushed out to the update after next, we’re still on track to deliver the "August Update," as it’s called for now, by the end of the month. The August Update includes a big change to progression, which updates what happens when you gain levels in Rocket League along with major tuning related to how frequently that happens. Our intent is to make gaining levels desirable, achievable, and rewarding.

We’re also very excited about our first Rocket Pass, which launches one week after the August Update rolls out to you. Rocket Pass and its "Premium" upgrade features a ton of fantastic content for you to collect --  you can learn more about it in our Closer Look from June.

In addition to Cross-Platform Parties in September, there are also a number of new features and content coming later this year. We’ll be kicking off Competitive Season 9 this fall, along with moving all Sports Playlists, like Rumble, Dropshot, etc. into their own Ranked tab (may the best players win)! And be sure to keep an eye out for additional announcements in the coming weeks, including some exciting social features we think will be a big hit.

That’s a quick preview of the next couple of months of what’s in the development pipeline. We’re still planning another Roadmap blog to cover the last few months of 2018. Be sure to share your thoughts on RocketID, Rocket Pass and progression with us on Twitter and the Subreddit. Thanks for your continued support!

Im guessing since its been what? 3 months sicne season 8 started that the reason season 8 won't end till this fall instead of this month August/September is that you guys are still trying to figure out how to work rumble/hoops/dropshot into ranked because fall will most likely make this season the longest yet. and any news on if its a hard reset or soft? because of adding new rank playlists? still lookng forward to the end of this month

This season theres again been way to many players in the grandchamp playlist. It still baffles my mind that the highest playlist is so easy to get and holds 0 value whatsoever.
RIP RocketLeagueStats :(

Get yer facts straight, boii. Stopping the season here would mean it'd be the shortest one to date. We've got until the 28th of February next year before it's going to be the longest season...

It's likely gonna be a soft reset. New playlists will likely have new and separate MMR.

Go :mrgreen: I believe in you!

I think it holds 0 value like any of the ranks hold 0 value. It's just a simple game.

Or could it be xkoeckiiej that your opinion is a bit skewed since you've been GC from the start of RL?

Damn you psyonix. I had made it my goal to become a gc before I reached Rocketeer XP. I'm so close :x

Always bullying people, just like you did to Mantus!


Looking forward to the cross platform parties! :yaypsyonix:

I'm really excited about the new update. I think Rocket League pass is great for a lot of different reasons, but for me, I will be buying it because I have played so long (2008) on minimal dollar value, and want to continue to support. They have to get paid too hehe. Anyways, hope Hoops is also ranked and brings players to it hehe :)

hey, new here. So i don't know where to put this since i can't make my own post, and problems with crates are mostly old posts. I had some problems going on with my internett one day on my xbox one. So i decided to delete my game and reinstall it. No message told me about deleting anything in the game. I when i then reinstalled the game all my campion 1-2-3-4 crates, and my replays were gone. Glitches happen, i never got those replays or keys back. It happened maybe a month or two after they got rid of champ 1-2-3-4 drops. I never open much crates, so i had about 170 or something. Just champion crates, so it really sucked. However i have 201 crates today, so im ok for now :)
Just wanted to show this so people would think twice about uninstalling and reinstalling the game on xbox. I only pressed uninstall nothing more. Be aware and if you are going to reinstall the game, maybe use the champion crates before you do it :)

Players will mostly trade them away than collect them, I can feel.

I just had a though. Could somebody on PC invite a PS4 player and an XBOX or Switch player into the same lobby?

Ok so here's a question. I play on PS4 and PC. So with the Rocket ID, is there any way that I would be able to link my 2 accounts into one Rocket ID? I feel like that would make a lot of sense because I'm the same person on a different platform. Like all my stats would just be linked together in one account basically.

I really want to know this as well @stinger3522. First of all I am dying waiting for the Rocket ID. I only still play on console because of my friends. The game performs ages better on the PC but I also have a lot of really expensive items on the Xbox like TW Zombas, TW Octane, several BMD's, etc... So I am hoping the accounts link up and either merge or become one based on a primary account. Since a ton of people keep claiming Rocket League is stealing Fortnite's ideas (Absolutely False and if anything they only made it better with color varients) I would like to point out that Fornite's Epic Games account linking does allow the indiviual access to one combined inventory that is accessible on every platform the user uses. And the account also tracks all the stats from each platform. Please Psyonix! I really need you to come through on this one!!!

(Ex. loosing the items on my steam account and just continuing with my inventory I had on the Xbox)

I hate how people complain about the recent update and compare to Fortnite lol. Like this update and forthcoming ones are great! I like what they're doing. I don't necessarily expect account linking to be out right away so its fresh out and I know they want it work smoothly first for Cross Platform. But they should definitely look into this. It would also eliminate having to have people add you twice.
