Psyonix working on implementing cross-platform parties for Rocket League



The Rocket League community is still alive and strong, with developer Psyonix still pushing regular updates and new content. Psyonix detailed the newest Autumn Update for the game, while also outlining their ambitions post-update.

Meanwhile, the studio also went ahead and unveiled some interesting projects that it is working on implementing to the game following the Autumn Update. Available digitally on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, and Windows PC, Mac, and SteamOS via Steam, Rocket League includes more than 100 billion possible customization combinations, a fully-featured offline season mode, multiple game types, casual and competitive online matches, and special "Mutators" that let you change the rules entirely.


A Tournament system is something we've wanted for Rocket League since our launch in July 2015. This Tournaments Beta will allow players of all skill ranges to host in-game tournaments without the need even to leave the client. Besides adding the usual new arenas, cars and cosmetics, the developer hopes to update the game's tournament and party systems. However, Tournaments will launch on all platforms in a future 2018 update. When finished, this new system will allow you to party up directly via PsyNet instead of the party systems now used through Steam, Xbox Live, or the PlayStation Network. You'll still use the "Create Party" button as you normally would, but instead of seeing a Party invite in Steam, you'll see new in-game notifications alerting you to a Party invite. The Party System beta will be Steam-exclusive as well, but it's "the first step in enabling the possibility of supporting cross-platform parties at a later date", Psyonix said.

Finally, Psyonix touched on the upcoming Events system, which will enable players to earn additional vehicle customizations through time-limited events. We'll have more information about the new Party System once we're closer to launch.
