Panic Button

Panic Button has had a big impact on Switch. Thanks to the studio’s efforts, Doom and Rocket League have appeared on the console, with Wolfenstein II to come this year.

Adam Creighton, director of development at Panic Button, recently teased that the studio has more games in the works for Switch. Creighton told Gamasutra:

“You know that meme? With the dog? Drinking from a sprinkler? That’s me right now. And we might have some other titles for that platform, and maybe some other games for other platforms, in the works. In terms of volume, I’m in this amazing place where as a studio we get to choose how we want to grow, and with whom, and with what projects. My biggest challenge lately is not which projects do we pick to retarget to other platforms, but managing the other parts of our portfolio, picking the different projects that are exciting to different people in the studio, and being responsible about what I want to work on, versus what is best for the studio.”

A couple of videos have emerged showing off Doom’s new 1.1.1 update, which was published last night. Have a look at some footage below.

A new update for Rocket League is here. Today, Psyonix issued version 1.41 for all Switch players.

The new update introduces some changes and updates, bug fixes, and more. We have the full patch notes below.

Psyonix posted a comprehensive update today outlining the various features and updates in store for Rocket League. One point applies specifically to Switch.

This spring, Rocket League will be updated on Switch to support two graphical modes. The first is Performance Mode, which is 900p when docked and 720p in handheld mode at 60 frames per second with infrequent dynamic resolution scaling. If that doesn’t interest you, Quality Mode will offer native 1080p docked and 720p portable resolution at 30 frames per second with added visual effects.

The full roadmap for Rocket League’s pipeline all the way up through April and beyond can be found below.

Rocket League currently supports cross-platform play. If you’re playing on Switch, you can match together with someone on an Xbox One or PC.

Psyonix intends to take this a step further with cross-platform party support. The functionality will be added in later this year, the studio confirmed via Twitter.


Cross-platform parties will allow for the ability to create a party of players from different platforms that can move together between matches as a group without having to constantly invite people into a private match. As the way things are now, parties are limited to other players on the same platform.
