Psyonix has announced some new details about the upcoming December monthly update to their popular competitive title, Rocket League.
The big draw this time around is on new updates for game modes and other social elements within the game. The leaderboards for various game modes are being updated to include the Ranked Extra Modes added back in September. There’s also been some changes to the XP and progression systems which should streamline the process. There’s even some non-gameplay cosmetic stuff in this update too, such as music from a new EP by Monstercat, new community flags and some other unannounced goodies.
Another major aspect of this patch is a series of visual overhauls on the Xbox One X. Starting with this update in December, Xbox gamers will enjoy increased visual fidelity and framerates as the game leverages more powerful hardware. Expect to see 60 frames-per-second, with the option for HDR and 4K display support if your TV supports those.
The December update for Rocket League is scheduled to go live on December 6, 3:00 pm PST. This is after a delay of some previously planned features. Psyonix planned to push out the much-anticipated cross-platform alongside this patch, but it’s been pushed once again to later in 2019.
So while fans of Rocket League are stuck waiting for the main update which adds cross-platform play, they’ve at least got these minor updates to help tide them over.
Rocket League is out now on PC, Xbox One and PS4.
