Subscribe To Rocket League Will Receive Visual Improvements On Nintendo Switch Before Xbox One X Updates
Fans seem to be loving Rocket League on the Nintendo Switch, but one thing everyone seems to agree on is that the graphics slouch a bit when compared to other platforms. The team at Psyonix is working to address that, and they've even prioritized it over similar tweaks on other platforms.
Over on the Rocket League Blog, the team at Psyonix has put out an update giving a look at the road ahead for Spring 2018. If you thought maybe development or activities within the game would be slowing down, this meaty list of adjustments and additions coming in the next few months proves that Rocket Leauge is going as fast and strong as ever.
One of the first items to ping on our radar, though, is a Switch updated scheduled for a March/April window. The update states that a "Switch Performance and Visual Quality Update" will be made available at that time, giving players more control over the game's visual fidelity. In short, you'll have two options to pick from, including Performance Mode and Quality Mode. Performance Mode will be at 900p docked and 720p in handheld mode, at 60 fps with infrequent dynamic resolution scaling. Going with quality mode, though, will put you at native 1080p docked and 720p in handheld mode at 30 fps with added visual effects. So, if you want the game to run as smoothly as possible or simply look as sharp as possible, you'll have the ability to choose between the two.
Tacked onto the "April and beyond" portion of the calendar is support for Xbox One X, which Psyonix now says will be available in "late 2018." That'll be about a year after the console launched, but we figure this development time means they've got a lot of stuff planned to take full advantage of the beefed up Xbox console. There were no details as to what those enhancements will be but, given the fact that we're still about a year off from launch, that's not super surprising.
If you're a fan of Rocket League, we'd recommend giving the full update rundown a gander. It's pretty packed, including hints at all sorts of new content, a new season schedule and even tournament play. As noted in the post, Psyonix will now be alternating updates on a monthly basis, with content updates swapping out for feature updates every other month. They state that this will allow for more a "more frequent and regular cycle" of updates in both areas, which should take some of the guess work out of what's coming next for the game's dedicated fans.
