Rocket League: Friends Update Coming February 19

Psyonix has just confirmed that “The Friends Update” will go live in Rocket League to make Cross-Platform Parties a reality on February 19.

Rocket League’s Friends List brings your friends across all platforms to one place. Players will be able to create Cross-Platform parties to team up in Rocket League.

The Friends Update will bring a new Friends List to the main menu, over there, you’ll be able to see the online status of all of your Rocket League friends regardless of their platform. The Friends List is split into four tabs: Friends, RocketID, Recent Players, and Alerts.

Check out the video below to see the new user interface:

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!

Extra Mode Training, Competitive Season 9 Rewards, Weekly Win Display, and More

Extra Modes are coming to Free Play! Following the update, you’ll be able to jump into Dropshot, Hoops, Snow Day, and Rumble to practice for as long as you’d like. Soon, you’ll be able to train and prepare for your journey to Grand Champ in the Extra Modes!

Additionally, Weekly Wins will no longer be a mystery. The Friends Update will add the number of Weekly Wins you have left, which will appear on your XP screen following each game.

And, as you may have seen in our previous Roadmap Blog[www.rocketleague.com], The Friends Update will deliver your Competitive Season Rewards based on your placement in Competitive Season 9. Check out our Spring Roadmap to learn more about those rewards.
