Rocket League’s Anniversary Event Starts Next Week
Developer Psyonix will release an in-game anniversary event of their popular sports game, Rocket League, featuring a whole lot of fun. The event will run from July 9th to July 23rd and is actually a combined celebration of Rocket League’s third anniversary, and Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars’ tenth anniversary (the game’s predecessor). It will allow players to obtain a whole bunch of new customization items by redeeming SARPBC-themed ‘Balloons’ that can be earned by playing matches online.
Perhaps the most interesting inclusion, however, is the addition of ‘Throwback Stadium’, inspired by SARPBC. Tthe goal layout is completely different to how it is currently in Rocket League, with a path running behind the goal and, crucially, no giant wall to help players guide the ball into the net. The ball’s weight will also be adjusted on this particular stage to recreate the play-style of Rocket League’s predecessor.
Here’s a screenshot of the new stadium:
