Earlier this week, Rocket League gained its Progression Update. Psyonix has now shared some information about Rocket Pass, the new time-limited progression system.

Rocket Pass will be live on September 5 at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM in the UK / 7 PM in Europe. We have a trailer for it below.


Rocket League’s next update is live, and it’s a big one. When downloaded on Switch, it’ll be version 1.1.0. This is also known as the 1.50 update.

One of the big features Psyonix has been working on for Rocket League is cross-platform parties. Players can register an in-game ID comprised of a name and a unique code, add friends from other platforms by entering their ID into a new in-game friends list, and party with friends online.

Earlier today, Panic Button held a lengthy Reddit AMA. The studio discussed its Switch ports, working with the system, porting process, its relationship with Nintendo, future project, and a whole lot more.

Here’s a summary of the notable points: 

Digital Extremes surprised everyone last weekend by announcing Warframe for Switch. Panic Button, who has significant porting experience with the platform, is bringing this one over.

When Warframe does come to Switch, it won’t support cross-platform play. This isn’t just a Switch thing, as it’s the case on other platforms as well. However, Digital Extremes isn’t ruling out the feature entirely for the future.
