Rocket League News Post

First announced in March, Cross-network compatibility between Xbox One and Steam PC users is scheduled to arrive at 6:00 PM ET today, with the possibility for PlayStation 4 users to get into the mix at a later date.

Independent videogame developer and publisher, Psyonix, announced today that the sports-action hit, Rocket League™, now supports cross--network play between the Xbox One and Steam PC versions, making it the first-ever Xbox One game to do so. Nearly 2 million Xbox One players have competed in Rocket League™ since its launch in February 2016, but starting today, that pool of teammates and opponents grows even larger.

With this new addition, players can now easily include (or not include) cross-network rivals in both public and private matches, thanks to an easy-to-find toggle check box in the Options menu.

"We're really excited to bring Xbox One and PC players closer together," said Jeremy Dunham, Vice President, Psyonix. "Cross-network play has been something that Xbox One gamers have been asking us for since the day we launched, and thanks to Microsoft's new cross-network policies, we're proud to give it to them."

UPDATE: The update has arrived, check out the details of the 1.18 patch below.

  • (PC/XB1) Cross-Network Play is available now between Xbox One and Steam platforms.
    • *Cross-Network Play is enabled by default. Players can disable this feature in the Misc. tab of the Options menu.
    • If any player within a party has Cross-Network Play disabled, that party will only find games with players on their own platform.
  • (XB1) Players from Steam platform will appear with a Rocket League shield icon on the in-game scoreboard (instead of the Psynet icon like on the other platforms).
  • Leaderboards now have a platform-specific filter option that only shows rankings for the network you are playing on.
  • Fixed a crash in Free Play when Reset Ball was used after scoring
  • Fixed issues preventing players from spawning when playing offline/splitscreen modes.
