A new Rocket League update is scheduled to arrive today around 10:00 AM PST. The update includes a Friends List, bringing your friends across all platforms, in Rocket League, to one place. Create Cross-Platform parties to team up in Rocket League and dominate the pitch.
UPDATE: (The patch is available now, check out the Rocket League patch 1.58 notes here.)
The Friends Update will bring a new Friends List to the main menu. Here, you’ll be able to see the online status of all of your Rocket Leaguefriends regardless of their platform. The Friends List is split into four tabs: Friends, RocketID, Recent Players, and Alerts.
The Friends Tab will display your friends on your current platform. The RocketID Tab will show your online friends on all other platforms. After the update, every player will be auto-assigned a RocketID, which will be your username followed by four randomly-generated numbers. You may change the word portion of your RocketID at any time.
The Recent Players tab conveniently shows players you were recently matched up with or against. If you had solid team chemistry with a randomly-matched player, you can easily send that player a Friend Request from the Recent Players tab if they are on a different platform.
Finally, the Alerts tab will house all of your player interactions like Friend Requests, Party Invites, and Club Invites. Yes, Clubs are now Cross-Platform, too!
