Rocket League‘s first competitive season is coming to an end with its next update, scheduled for February. The upcoming update will begin season two, and add some changes to the unlockable cosmetic items that players can deploy with their cars. In a recent post to the game’s Steam community, developer Psyonix explained what is changing with the upcoming update.
The first update will be the rewards for those who have played in Rocket League‘s competitive game modes. There will be bronze, silver, gold, and platinum crowns awarded, depending on the highest ranked level players have reached. These can be equipped in the topper slot for your vehicles.
In addition to ranked rewards, Rocket League will also see item “qualities” enter the fold. Items will now have different colored titles to represent their quality. Regular unlocked items will have grey titles, indicating them as common. Items unlocked through DLC purchases will be green (premium), while orange items are limited quality. Orange will be indicated that the item was earned in a promotional or holiday event. Finally, Psyonix will be adding a brand new type of item: uncommon (light blue). Each player can earn uncommon items through regular play, where they will have a variable drop rate. The longer you play, the better your chances of getting an uncommon item. Once you receive one, your drop rate will return to the original rate. These new items will include both toppers and antennas.
Rocket League is still going strong, even though it was a smaller title released in a sea of high budget, successful games last year. Psyonix continues to add new features and support the game, so it appears it will not be going away in the near future.
