The Rocket League updates continue to roll in, as Psyonix has scheduled the next one to arrive on October 14. Haunted Hallows makes its return for the Halloween season, along with a new post-game party-up feature, team-colored boost meters and more. Check out the key features below.
Easily partying-up with teammates following a match is about to get a whole lot easier. If your team synergy is off the charts with a player or team you met in an Online Match, you’ll easily be able to party-up with them from the post-game menu. Simply select “Party-Up” after a match. Teammates who also select “Party-Up will then be grouped together with you for the next game. We hope you’re able to make some new Rocket League friends with the new Party-Up feature!
TEAM-COLORED BOOST METER
With an ever-growing collection of Painted Battle-Cars and Decals, we wanted to make it even easier to see exactly what color team you’re on at the start of each game. That’s why the October Update is bringing colored Boost Meters. The Boost Meter itself will remain the same, but the Meter’s background will be blue or orange depending on your team color. The Boost Meter will also match custom team colors, and the Colorblind Mode option will apply to the boost meter, too!
There will soon be one less button press to get you exactly where you want to go. Following the update, you’ll be able to select “Quickplay” and immediately start searching for a game in the last playlist you joined. New players will default to the 3v3 Standard Playlist when selecting Quickplay for the first time.
NEWS PANEL REFRESH
As soon as you start up Rocket League following the October Update, you’ll notice that the news section has received a new coat of paint. The grid of information that is usually found on the right side of the screen has been replaced with a new welcome screen that will highlight new events, DLC, or other major announcements. Once dismissed, it can be accessed again via a hidden News Tab on the right side of the screen.
NEW ESPORTS TEAMS
Two new teams are being added to the Esports Shop rotation: Complexity and Spacestation Gaming! Look out for their new items in the Esports Shop following the update.
