Psyonix has been keeping the fires of momentum going for Rocket League since its debut back in 2015. The company even constructed a brand new roadmap for the game's future development in order to lure in more gamers to the all new features and updates that will be added to Rocket League across multiple platforms. More specifically, Psyonix allowed more details to emerge centering around the all new Rocket Pass for Rocket League, which will enable gamers to gain more access to more content for a fixed price.
The Rocket Pass will allow users to gain access to new content throughout the year. The pass will not affect the current XP-system that the developers have in place for gamers to elevate and evolve their skills, but it will offer users a way to earn new player banners, titles, decryptors and customization items. The Rocket Pass will come in two formats: Free and Premium.
The free Rocket Pass will allow players to earn rewards that unlock all new content within Rocket League. As explained in the paragraph above, you'll be able to unlock a smorgasbord of content for the action-sports multiplayer title, allowing you to deck out your vehicles with brand new accessories, unlock all new liveries and scrape by with some sexy new titles for your online user profile.
The premium Rocket Pass will be available for $9.99, and it will offer you everything that the free pass comes with and then some, including special customization items, all new car bodies, keys and premium versions of the player banners and titles. Additionally, the Rocket Pass will net you the ability to unlock XP boosts that will multiply your XP gains throughout the duration of the Rocket Pass being active.
The free and premium versions will be available across all platforms, including the Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. You won't be able to unlock crates from the Rocket Pass tiers, but you can unlock decryptors and keys.
Additionally, the FAQ mentions that it will take an estimated 100 hours to unlock all the tiers available in the Rocket Pass, which is a substantial amount of time investment for the $9.99 premium version.
This will all tie into the big July anniversary event for Rocket League, which will span between July and August, featuring massive new cross-platform play updates, along with the implementation of Progression 2.0, which will overhaul the leveling, remove the level 75 cap and the ability to unlock new rare items, titles and banners. The new level cap will be extended up to 100, giving gamers even more reasons to keep playing and unlocking gear in the game.
This also ties into the new XP mechanics that will hand out bonuses based on in-match performances, as well as the introduction of the Rocket Pass.
