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 has partnered with Zag Toys for a new wave of Rocket League toys. The Rocket League Light-Up Clip-Ons will begin appearing in the US starting in March for $5.99 each. They’ll be sold at various retailers including GameStop, Target, Walmart, Toys “R” Us”, and online specialty stores.

Octane, Dominus, Breakout, Takumi, Endo, Backfire, Ripper, and Road Hog are the new toys, along with a ninth mystery Super Rare model. You might also be interested to hear that an in-game redemption code is included with the Super Rare Clip-On for the brand new Z-Plate Wheels – pictured 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.

Digital Foundry has returned with a new technical analysis of a Switch game. For its latest investigation, Rocket League is the focus.

Having Rocket League run at 60 frames per second was the top priority. As a result, the team needed to make some compromises to the visuals.

Rocket League has been discounted on the North American Switch eShop, marking the first time it has gone on sale on Nintendo’s console.

Rocket League can currently be purchased for $14.99. Normally, it costs $19.99. You’ll be saving 25% with a purchase.

This sale will continue until January 2.
