Rocket League resolution in docked and portable modes

Posted on November 13, 2017 by (@tylerlelliott) in News, Switch

During an AMA on Reddit, Psyonix provided tech specs for Rocket League on the Switch. When docked, the resolution is 720p. The resolution stays around 526p when in portable mode. The priority seems to have been keeping the game running at a solid 60fps.

Rocket League runs at 1280×720 in Docked and uses a dynamic resolution scaler in Undocked (handheld) depending on the stadium being played. Generally speaking it hovers around 1024×576. Post launch we plan to continue working on optimizing the game.

    Guys, is this game cool?
    Lately, all the hype was in DOOM and we forgot about this game.

    • Michael C

      it is really cool….but like Doom, best played everywhere else…unless mobile is your big selling point

      • Robert Hastings

        Yeah for resolution, not for anything else.

      • burchdude65

        Portability is enough for me to choose this version. I can handle a lower resolution. Frame rate is more important to me.

        Hey, what do you know, Michael Wazowski said something somewhat true for once.

      • Nhat Anh Hoang

        Yeah, best played everywhere except play on xbox is the worst

    • theFooFighter

      It’s the other shovel Knight or undertale. It’s one of those Indies that hit mainstream attention

      • Aline Piroutek

        Too many “possible cool games” don’t have a demo. Whyyyy? Time consuming?

    • Veati

      Yes, it is amazing. It is pretty fun

    • Renato A. O. Andrade

      Hei @alinepiroutek:disqus o game parece ser muito bom. Por falar em DOOM, a empresa que portou o Rocket League é a mesma do port de DOOM, e a qualidade aparentemente está boa.

      Sugestão: entre no grupo Nintendo Nation do facebook, o qual eeu administro. Lá você poderá tirar suas dúvidas. 🙂

      • Aline Piroutek

        I hope it has download play option. Even Mario Kart 8 didn’t have

    • RoadyMike

      Game is fkn awesome at 20$. I’ve had it on Steam for about a year now and
      It’s incredibly fun, even if you’re not that good at it. Cars with rockets playing sports like soccer, hockey and some other modes

      If you like what you see so far, don’t hesitate getting the game tomorrow

      • Aline Piroutek

        Wow, is it really $20? It’s the price of Shovel Knight and Mighty No9, cool!

    • ben

      Both games are amazing. Both games have incredible documentaries about them.

      Both games are amazing.

    • DEZn00ts_1

      VERY good. Been building PC’s before ROcket League came out and never had any interest in it. It is the PERFECT fit for the Switch. With that being said… Mario Odyssey looks better and has more on the screen then Rocket League could ever have, there is no reason they should have had to downgrade the graphics and resolution so much seeing as hardly anything is happening on screen besides a 6 person RC simulator. They need to patch and optimize this game for Switch graphics wise but it still looks and plays VERY good.

  • Michael C

    continued sacrifices on 3rd party games.

    • theFooFighter

      Lower resolutions aren’t a sacrifice. It’s the same game except portable. It’s not like they removed half the levels or cars it’s very clearly still rocket league

    • Hidden Flare

      You seem to be another one who comes on here to ‘spread the truth’ like all the others. Tell me why you decide to bring up such negative things about nintendo on a nintendo site?

      • Bruno_Ostara

        If you look at his profile you won’t find a single positive comment about anything. This guy has issues. Move on

        • Hidden Flare

          Im aware of how people like him are. Im just curious what he would say. I get curious why anti nintendo people come to a nintendo site to say bad things about Nintendo.

          • Bruno_Ostara

            I know the feeling. Seems like they really enjoy wasting they’re lives with things they don’t like. Seems like an awful way of living if you ask me

          • Hidden Flare

            Meh just trolling. I can imagine its just like an hour a week for them. Its best to ignore unless you want to play with them.

    • awesomeparadise3

      It’s confirmed that they will work on optimizing it further.

    • jimmy

      Can we sacrifice michael c?

        That’s a bit much.

        • Indielink

          He does this on every article man. You know he’s only doing it to cause trouble and piss everyone off. You’ve been around here long enough to know that.

    • Paul Barnes

      What a load of bollocks you spew!!!

      • Hans Olo

        Language, are you mad at yourself…..just get rid of your mirrors.

    • Nhat Anh Hoang

      Agree, xbox suck too much when compare to ps4, even a lot more to pc

    • Suffer4fashion

      If you are only worried about resolution why play video games? Shouldn’t you be pushing the limits in Autodesk Maya? Isn’t that a more appropriate platform to be worried about polygons?

  • ecoutercavalier

    It’s good to hear that their priorities were in the right place.

  • DonSerrot

    They put the focus in the right place. I’d rather have lower rez at 60FPS than MEGA ULTRA HD at 30. They got the important part working so future refinements will only make it look better.

  • Jaxon Holden

    Handheld version of Rocket League.

    See, this is why Switch is such a blessing. We would have NEVER seen this game on 3DS or Vita. And honestly, even if we did it probably wouldn’t have been worth playing.

    • Nhat Anh Hoang

      Depend, it will be suit for people who play at 360p/10-15fps like many multi-platform games on vita

  • Pepperkeet

    What’s with these garbage resolutions?

    • Nhat Anh Hoang

      To keep 60 fps, or you want 1080p/25 – 30fps?

    • Alexander Prijn

      If Nintendo would have put forth a console that works on the same resolutions as PS4 and Xbox One they would not have sold as many consoles as they have now. Bad business model to just aim to bring the same kind of console to the market as 2 competitors are already doing. The Switch is much much smaller than the PS4 and Xbox One, expecting the same resolutions as PS4 and Xbox One is just silly.

  • Further optimizing it? Hmm….maybe they can get it to 900p 60fps in docked mode and 720p 60fps in portable mode……looking forward to this game

    • ben

      I have faith these guys are amazing.

    • Nick Motsarsky

      Lmao. Not gonna happen. Xbox one and ps4 both play this at 1080/60, and the switch is 3 times weaker than even the xbox..

      • Alexander Prijn

        It’s also about 8 times smaller, which is why you can take it with you.

  • Airsh Bornely

    Fire Emblem Warriors has me spoiled. I LOVE having the option to switch on the fly if I want 720p with 60 fps or 1080p with 30fps. This needs to be a standard and I wish Rocket League had this. Luckily, it’s my preferred preference here, especially since I don’t play my Switch off a big screen TV. FPS matters more and they chose the better option. Just wish players could choose

    • AJK

      Cross play wouldn’t function without unified franerates

      • Nick Motsarsky

        Uhh, yes it would..

        • AJK

          The players playing at 60fps versus those playing at 30fps…at the same time? How would that actually work? Genuine question

          • Nick Motsarsky

            The same way that pc gaming works. Some people play rocket league at 144hz, some at 60, some at 30, etc etc…

    • ShonenJump

      Well… that’s now on most koei tecmo games.

  • could be 900p 60f hope in the future will fix this, overall this game look amazing on the go!

    • ben

      I have total faith in them making this game better.

  • Rodrigo Coelho Costa Junior

    great game, probably looks good, totally worth buying.
    That being said.. its a shame that nintendo can make a wonderful-looking game such as Mario Kart 8 Deluxe play at 1080p 60fps with a lot of crazy things going on at the same time on the screen… and these guys can’t make this run at 720p in hendheld. or even s table 720p docked.

    • Indielink

      It is a flat 720p in docked.

      • Rodrigo Coelho Costa Junior

        really? oh.. I though I read dynamic resolution.. actually I’m pretty sure I did.
        but I’ll believe you

        • Indielink

          Dynamic resolution is for handheld based on the stadium you are playing in.

    • carlos holguin holguin

      Its a port..

      • Rodrigo Coelho Costa Junior

        annd….? really, you’ll settle for that excuse?

        • Paul Barnes

          Dumbass the switch is less powerful than the ps4 you can’t expect the same level of performance.

          • Rodrigo Coelho Costa Junior

            Paul, why you gotta be so offensive man? Are you frustrated with something in your life? Your friends don’t love you?
            Try being nicer online… there’s no reason to start cursing other people.

            That is not the point. Read the original comment.

          • Hans Olo

            Which is why smart people dont but the Switch. Aww, it’s so cute when you try to talk about things you don’t understand little girl.

            LOL

  • Locky Mavo

    Man, I’d take framerate performance over graphical resolution every time.

  • elkrebso

    After playing on Switch for the last few hours and almost 1,000 hrs on PS4, I can definitely confirm it feels just like Rocket League. Perfectly fine.

    • Hi Elkrebso you would like join our discord dedicate about Nintendo, we debate and discuss on chat daily, If you are interested in the future to join us the link is in my bio. Good day!!

  • wasn’t this already known?

  • Locky Mavo

    So is crossplay functioning or not yet?

  • ben

    These guys are an amazing studio and they will make this game run even better I have no doubt at all. Support them because there are not many people as good as these guys in the game industry.

  • And the award for lowest-res game on a modern console goes to…
