Rocket League Roadmap for 2018.jpg

There are some very exciting things to come for Rocket League fans across the globe. Last month, we reported that cross-platform party support will be making their way into the game sometime this year. However, that’s not the only thing developer Psyonix is working on, not by a long shot. The developer has outlined their plans for the year and it honestly looks fantastic, with a tonne of additions for Rocket League fans to get excited about.

Some of the new things coming to the game is a Tournament feature, a whole bunch of Quality of Life updates, new Arenas and more, including the aforementioned cross-platform party support. The developer explained that they are testing a new update schedule this year, which will guarantee players won’t have to wait long between competitive seasons.
