Ok listen up good kids and toxic one’s alike, Rocket League is about to celebrate it’s 5th anniversary and holy crapola is there a ton of stuff to check out and play with. But before I move forward I must admit… I only just started playing RL this January… Ok then so if you’re done scolding me for being so damn late let’s move on. You’re here because you love RL or have been interested in it as I was for the past 5 years. It’s worth it, get it so you can experience all the fun. If you still need a little push, check out this awesome and funny video by top RL youtuber, SunlessKhan
But enough jibba jibba, here’s the beans that I am spilling, direct from RL’s news feed to your eyeholes.
“It's hard to believe we've been dishing assists, hitting aerials, and scoring ridiculous goals in Rocket League for nearly FIVE YEARS! It will officially hit the milestone on July 7, but we're celebrating early with Rocket League's Fifth Anniversary: a two-week in-game event starting June 30, and everyone's invited! Get ready for Limited Time Modes and unique items celebrating the legacy of Rocket League!
Beginning June 30 when the event goes live, you'll start earning Balloons from Online Matches. Spend those Balloons in the Event Store and unlock brand new Psyonix- and Rocket League-inspired items. From the new Psyonix II Wheels to the Party Horn Boost, check out all the items from the event in the slideshow below.
These new items aren't the only thing in the Event Store. Golden Eggs are back, and they contain items from Champions Series 1, 2, 3, and 4! You can earn a total of five Golden Eggs. Plus, if you still have extra Balloons, you can exchange them for XP Packs to Tier Up your Rocket Pass.
In addition to the Event Store, the classic Spike Rush and 2v2 Heatseeker Limited Time Modes will be featured throughout the Fifth Anniversary Event. Check out the start, end, and Redemption period dates below:
Spike Rush: June 30 at 9 a.m. PDT (4 p.m. UTC) (Event Begins) - July 6 at 9 a.m. PDT (4 p.m. UTC)
2v2 Heatseeker: July 6 at 9 a.m. PDT (4 p.m. UTC) - July 13 at 9 a.m. PDT (4 p.m. UTC) (Event Ends)
Redemption period: July 13 at 9 a.m. PDT (4 p.m. UTC) - July 16 at 2 p.m. PDT (9 p.m. UTC)
It's thrilling and humbling to think about Rocket League hitting the five-year mark, and we won't be slowing down any time soon. A huge "thank you" from us to everyone in our community. Rocket League wouldn't be where it is today without your continued passion and support.” So what are you waiting for. You’ve seen the videos, you’ve heard your friends talking about it, it’s cheap as hell and if you’ve got Xbox Game Pass, it’s free! So what are you waiting for!?
This. Is. Rocket League.
