If you are playing Psyonix’s Rocket League on either a Mac or Linux computer, you might want to take note that the developer has announced that they will be dropping support for online multiplayer for the game on both those platforms. This will take place in March after a final patch for the game has been released.
In the past couple of years, the loot box mechanic found in video games has come under fire. This is because there are some who liken loot boxes like gambling, where gamers pay for items in which they don’t know what they’re getting, leading to government bodies like the FTC to launch an investigation.
Recently it was revealed that Epic would be acquiring Psyonix Games, which in the process also means that the company would own games like Rocket League. In the post on the Rocket League website, Epic announced that they would eventually be bringing Rocket League over to the Epic Games store and kind of left it at that.
Last year Harmonix confirmed that Rocket League would be supporting cross-platform play. However there was a catch and that is Sony was sitting this one out, as we had seen in the past. There is some good news and that is Harmonix has since announced that “full cross-platform play” is now supported.
Rocket League allows for cross-platform play amongst Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC gamers. Unsurprisingly given Sony’s stance, the PS4 is not part of that list. However Sony recently made headlines by announcing their decision to finally allow cross-play for Fortnite, which led to many wondering about other games Sony had denied in the past.
Last year Rocket League launched for the Nintendo Switch. However if you’ve yet to get your hands on the game, you might be interested to learn that Psyonix has since announced Rocket League: Ultimate Edition that is expected to make its way onto the Nintendo Switch on the 28th of August.
As it stands, Rocket League already supports cross-platform play, but unfortunately what it lacks is cross-platform party support. This means that while you might be able to play with other players on different platforms, you won’t actually be able to form parties with them and play together.
It seems like the developers at Rocket League love their crossovers because not only did they do a crossover with Nintendo by introducing Mario and Luigi themed cars, but the later DLC for the game will also see them team up with DC through the upcoming “DC Super Heroes” DLC pack.
Rocket League has found its way onto a variety of gaming platforms, such as the PC and consoles, and now if you’re looking for a new way of enjoying the game, you’ll be interested to learn that Hot Wheels has announced a real-life Rocket League. This will naturally involve RC cars and let players do battle in real-life.
As Nintendo Switch owners are probably aware, the console isn’t quite as powerful when compared to the likes of the PS4 Pro or the Xbox One X, which means that in terms of graphics, there is only so much developers can do at pushing the boundaries of the hardware. However the good news is that the developers of Rocket League will be bringing an upgrade to the game.
The Xbox One X is the most powerful console that Microsoft has ever made, it also happens to be the most popular gaming console on the market for consumers at this point in time. Many developers have updated their titles to take full advantage of the console’s improved performance but Rocket League’s Psyonix is not one of them yet. Psyonix says that it won’t release the Rocket League Xbox One […]
Rocket League fans have something to look forward to this year. It has been confirmed via the game’s official support account on Twitter that the Rocket League crossplay party support is going to be released in 2018. This is something that many players have been looking forward to. The crossplay party support will enable them to invite their friends to play on the same team regardless of the platform they’re […]
Earlier this year it was announced that popular game Rocket League would be arriving for the Nintendo Switch. It was later confirmed that the game would be released on the 14th of November, so if you own the Nintendo Switch, you’ll want to fire up the Switch’s eShop (or head over to a retailer) because the game is now available for the console.
It was confirmed earlier this year that the popular game Rocket League is going to be released for the Nintendo Switch. It was also revealed that there’s going to be content that will be exclusive to the Switch version of the game. Psyonix sent out a press release this morning confirming the Rocket League release date for the Nintendo Switch.
