Developer of Rocket League, Psyonix has just revealed its current roster of updates that will be coming to the game on several platforms, which will include Xbox One X support, and some graphical upgrades for the Nintendo Switch.
First off, a general update will be coming to all platforms on February 7. This update will bring the distribution of Competitive 6 rewards, and the launch of Competitive Season 7. Furthermore, the update will also include a new crate, a public beta of the new Tournament mode for Steam.
Previously, Psyonix said that it would update Rocket League for the Xbox One X, however, the recently revealed plans for Spring 2018, revealed that this will be pushed for late 2018 instead. Psyonix’s Corey Davis wrote in the plans that “We are now targeting Xbox One X support for late 2018.”
The update for the Switch on the other hand will include some massive visuals improvement that will raise the game’s resolution to 900p on docked mode, and 720p on handheld mode. Both resolutions will support a frame rate of 60 frames per second, “with infrequent dynamic resolution scaling.” Currently, Rocket League on the Switch only supports 720p on both modes, with dynamic resolution taking it down to as low as 576p. These graphical changes will be coming sometime between March and April of 2018.
Lastly, Psyonix also said that this year’s spring updates will introduce new arenas that will let players host cross-platform parties. Of course, these cross-platform features will only be available if the platforms concerned will be willing to participate. As of now, PlayStation still does not want to involve the PS4 in any cross-platform play with other systems for Rocket League.
