Posted on August 22, 2018 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

The next patch for Rocket League will go live next week, Psyonix has announced. Players will be able to download the Progression Update, which “is focused on how and when you earn XP and how you play with your friends online,” starting August 29.

Below are the full details straight from Psyonix:

Our next Rocket League update arrives next week! Coming to all platforms on August 29, the Progression Update is focused on how and when you earn XP and how you play with your friends online.

Our overhaul of progression moves XP from Offline Matches to Online and will give first-time and Rocketeer players alike new ways to unlock FREE content. We’ve also removed the level 75 cap, added XP bonuses and created new in-game Titles you can earn over time. Be sure to catch up on new progression system details in our deep dive blog.

Joining the progression changes is Clubs, our newest in-game social feature. Clubs lets you and your friends organize and compete as a proper team within the Rocket League client. You’ll be able to name your Club, create a custom Club Tag and have up to 20 players unified as one! We’ll dive deeper into Clubs before the update goes live, so consider this a brief peek at what’s to come.

What else is coming in the Progression Update?

Avatar Borders: A brand new Customization Item that lives alongside your platform’s Avatar and your Player Banner!

Real-time filtering for text related to Clubs, Tournaments, and Party Chat

New Achievements and Trophies

A ‘Particle Details’ Video Option

Quality of Life (QoL) changes and bug fixes

…and more!

What about Rocket Pass and RocketID? Rocket Pass will go live the week after the Progression Update is released — be on the lookout for an in-game countdown once we’re closer to the launch! As for RocketID and Cross-Platform Parties, we’re still on track to release it before the end of September, as outlined in our latest Roadmap Update blog. In the meantime, let us know what you think of Clubs on Twitter and the subreddit!
