Rocket League update time as Psyonix reveal Fifth Anniversary event news

Rocket League will be celebrating its Fifth Anniversary in style, with Psyonix confirming a new two-week event being planned for the start of July. Next month marks the fifth year Rocket League has been available to play, with the game proving popular across PS4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch. A lot has changed since the original Rocket League experience went live and gamers can enjoy a number of top features, including cross-platform play. Today will see a new update go live, which will need to be downloaded by everyone who wants to keep up to date.

Psyonix has confirmed it’s a small patch and is being released ahead of the new Anniversary event.

So while not a lot will change directly after the Rocket League update has gone live, it will pave the way for big things in the coming weeks.

Psyonix has confirmed that its new patch will be available to download across platforms today at around 6pm, GMT.

For gamers in the United States, this means the new Rocket League update will be going live at around 10am PT.

And it sounds like the new Anniversary celebrations will be kicking off around June 30, 2020.

The full announcement regarding the next Rocket League Summer event can be found below:

“It’s hard to believe Rocket League is approaching its fifth birthday next month! With this major milestone on the horizon, we want to let our community know now that there’s a lot to look forward to in the second half of 2020, including new and updated features coming to the game.

“We’re working on a big update to Rocket League later this summer, and while we’re not quite ready to reveal everything coming to the game just yet, be on the lookout over the next few months.

“However, we are excited to announce that we’ll be celebrating Rocket League’s Fifth Anniversary with a two-week event starting at the end of this month with Limited Time Modes, and Rocket League- and Psyonix-themed items in the event store. These items and modes will be revealed in the next few weeks.

“There will be a small game update going live tomorrow in preparation for the Fifth Anniversary event, plus a new Item Series that we’ll reveal next week. The update will go live on all platforms tomorrow at 10:00 a.m. PDT (5 p.m. UTC).

“We’re very excited to talk about what we’re working on as we get closer to the major update, so stay tuned this summer as we’ll have plenty of info to share.”
